Dialogue Data: Soma Cruz (edit)
Image / Participants Transcript Information
Introduction
Soma Cruz: The year is 2035. Japan. Crowds of spectators are gathering around in anticipation of the first full solar eclipse of the twenty-first century.

My name is Soma Cruz, and I am a high school exchange student studying abroad in Japan.

I live near the Hakuba Shrine, an ancient shrine with strong ties to Japanese mythology.
Mina Hakuba, the only daughter of the shrine's caretaker, is both my classmate and my childhood friend.

I started making my way to the shrine to see the solar eclipse with Mina. But, for some strange reason, the stairway leading up to the shrine felt longer than usual, as if something was trying to keep us from our destination.

When I finally managed to get through the shrine gate, and my senses began to dim...

The pitch black sun is holding chaotic darkness together, trying to rouse a sleeping soul as if looking for its missing other half...

Entrance
(Soma is lying unconscious)

Soma Cruz: Oh...Mmm......
Mina Hakuba: Hey, looks like he's coming to.
Soma Cruz: Where am I...? WHOA! What... happened?
???: So you've decided to join us... Did you have a pleasant nap?
(Some turns to the man wearing black shirts)
Soma Cruz: Huh? Who the heck are you?
Mina Hakuba: It's OK, Soma. His name is Genya Arikado...
Genya Arikado: Skip the introductions. I have a few questions, and I need answers now.
Soma Cruz: Go... go ahead...
Genya Arikado: Why have you come here?
Soma Cruz: Why? Well, Mina and I... Hang on, where are we?
Genya Arikado: We're in Dracula's Castle.
Soma Cruz: Huh? Dracula's Castle? Are you telling me we are in Europe?
Genya Arikado: No. We are inside the solar eclipse.
Soma Cruz: Inside the eclipse?! You're insane! Do you think I'm a fool?!
Mina Hakuba: Soma! Listen to him, he's telling you the truth!
Soma Cruz: What the heck are you talking about? Give me an explanation!
Genya Arikado: Well, it's like this... Huh?! An enemy!
(Mina screams as Arikado defeats the enemies by unleashing his Soul Steal)
Genya Arikado: Damn! Protect the girl!
Soma Cruz: Yaaaaaaaah! Go back to where you came from!
(Soma defeats Winged Skeleton and gets its soul)
Soma Cruz: Wha... what was that thing?
Genya Arikado: So it has awakened.
Soma Cruz: What? What has?
Genya Arikado: The spirit of the creature you killed has just entered your body. You have the power to absorb the abilities of the monsters you kill.
Soma Cruz: Wh... why... why would I have that power...?
Genya Arikado: You have gained the power. Now you must go to the Master's chamber.
Soma Cruz: For what reason?
Genya Arikado: Do you not wish to return with your friend to your own world?
Soma Cruz: Of course I want to go back.
Genya Arikado: Go to the Master's chamber. Then, you will understand everything.
Soma Cruz: But I can't just leave Mina here like this.
Genya Arikado: No need to worry about her. I'll put up a protective barrier. But death will most certainly find those who stay here too long.
Soma Cruz: The... then I...
Genya Arikado: Yes. Only you can save her from a painful death.
Soma Cruz: And you, what will you do?

Genya Arikado: I, too, have things I must do within these castle walls. Go. Set forth! Both your own life and hers are at stake.

AoS-Mina DialogueMina Hakuba

Who is Arikado?
Soma Cruz: Mina! Are you doing okay?

Mina Hakuba: Yes, I'm fine. It seems like the monsters can't get in here anymore.
Soma Cruz: Arikado said he'd put up a protective barrier... and while we're on the subject, just who is Arikado?
Mina Hakuba: I'm not sure. I heard he does something related to national intelligence.
Soma Cruz: National intelligence? Sounds like he's a spy.
Mina Hakuba: He's been coming to the shrine. He's an unusual man.
Soma Cruz: What makes him so unusual?
Mina Hakuba: The face of a normal person changes as the years pass, right?
Soma Cruz: Yes, people change as they grow older.
Mina Hakuba: In the ten years I've known him, he hasn't changed at all.
Soma Cruz: Are you sure it's not just your imagination?
Mina Hakuba: It could be but...his face is just too beautiful. He's almost perfect. Don't you agree?
Soma Cruz: So you're saying that he's your type, right?
Mina Hakuba: What are you talking about!? I like guys who are...that's none of your business okay!?
Soma Cruz: It was just a joke. Why are you taking things so seriously?
Mina Hakuba: F...forget it. Don't you think it would be better if you stayed here too?
Soma Cruz: No. In order to get out of here, there's something I've been told I must do. Aside from that, I've discovered that I too have magical powers.
Mina Hakuba: I understand. But please be careful.
Soma Cruz: I will. Mina?
Mina Hakuba: Yes?
Soma Cruz: Do you trust me?
Mina Hakuba: Of course I do! I know that you would never lie to me.
Soma Cruz: If that's true, then please wait here. I promise I'll get you back home.
Mina Hakuba: Okay, don't worry about me. I can wait for as long as you need me to.
Soma Cruz: Alright, I'll be back.
Mina Hakuba: Don't get yourself hurt, okay?
Soma Cruz: Okay.

AoS-Graham DialogueGraham Jones

First Encounter with Graham
???: Oh? Hello there.

Soma Cruz: Uh, h-hello. Y-You're human, aren't you?
Graham Jones: Relax. My name is Graham. Let's just say... I'm a missionary.
Soma Cruz: Oh... I'm... Soma, Soma Cruz.
Graham Jones: You weren't here in this shrine before, were you? How did you get here?
Soma Cruz: I'm not sure. I went through the shrine gate... and BOOM I was here.
Graham Jones: I see...
Soma Cruz: Uh, can I ask you a question?
Graham Jones: Go ahead, I don't mind.
Soma Cruz: Is it true that this is Dracula's castle?
Graham Jones: It most certainly is.
Soma Cruz: But, isn't Dracula's castle in Europe somewhere?
Graham Jones: In theory, yes. But his TRUE castle exists somewhere else.
Soma Cruz: His true castle?
Graham Jones: Yes. It's a well known fact in the underworld. Do you believe in vampires?
Soma Cruz: Well, uh, no. I thought the story of Dracula was made up, actually.
Graham Jones: No, it's all true. It was leaked to the outside world. Usually, the church handles these things with utmost secrecy... Over the course of time, Dracula has resurrected many times... when people lost faith... and craved chaos and destruction...
Soma Cruz: So... are you trying to tell me now that Dracula has been resurrected?
Graham Jones: No. Dracula perished in 1999. You know of the prophecy of 1999, don't you?
Soma Cruz: Nostradamus' great prophecy...?
Graham Jones: That's right. Dracula was resurrected exactly as he predicted. But, vampire hunters destroyed him completely. They ended his regeneration cycle sealing his castle... the symbol of his demonic power, inside the darkness of an eclipse.
Soma Cruz: And that eclipse is where we are now...?
Graham Jones: Yes, but there's still more to the story...
Soma Cruz: There's more?
Graham Jones: "In the year 2035, a new master will come to the castle, and he... will inherit ALL of Dracula's powers."
Soma Cruz: But that's...!
Graham Jones: Yes. That time is now! I better get going.. Is that all, then?
Soma Cruz: Oh, yes. Thank you.
Graham Jones: Farewell and be careful.

Soma Cruz: Yes, you too.

First Encounter with Yoko
???: Hey, you're... Soma, aren't you? You must be him.

Soma Cruz: Y-yes, but... Who are you...?
Yoko Belnades: Oh, forgive me. I'm Yoko Belnades. I'm a member of the church.
Soma Cruz: How would a member of the church recognize me?
Yoko Belnades: You've met Aluca... um, I mean, Genya... Arikado, right?
Soma Cruz: I did meet him, but...
Yoko Belnades: He told me about you, and asked me to help you if you were in trouble.
Soma Cruz: Arikado said that? That's hard to believe.
Yoko Belnades: Well, he may seem cold at first, but he's actually quite a decent guy. He may be looking out for you because you share the same dark powers.
Soma Cruz: Wait, wait! Did you say my powers are "dark"?
Yoko Belnades: Oh, you mean you didn't know that!?
Soma Cruz: Uhh...
Yoko Belnades: Oh, no... did I say something...I...well... what's said is said. Essentially, you have the power to rule over and command monsters.
Soma Cruz: Rule over monsters? I have no desire to do that...
Yoko Belnades: It comes as naturally as breathing for you, so you may not realize it yet. And though I called it a "dark power," that doesn't mean it's evil. It's like a weapon. Its user decides whether to use it for good or evil.
Soma Cruz: Well, when you put it that way, I feel a little bit better. Since I got this power, I've begun to lose my sense of self.
Yoko Belnades: You are yourself. There's no one else you could be. Don't second guess yourself. Be confident. That's most important.
Soma Cruz: I think I understand now. Thanks, Yoko.
Yoko Belnades: (giggle) I'm not used to being thanked by people... Oh, I forgot to ask you. Have you seen a man named Graham?
Soma Cruz: Graham? Yes, I met him earlier.
Yoko Belnades: Be wary of that man. I believe that he will inherit Dracula's powers.
Soma Cruz: No way! He did not look like a bad guy.
Yoko Belnades: Right, and I've got a bridge to sell you! Don't be fooled by his appearance! He's not who you think he is.
Soma Cruz: Al... alright.

Yoko Belnades: Well, I must be going. I've got to find Graham! See you around!

Soma Cruz: Hi. I'm Soma.
Hammer: I thought I was inspecting a shrine, but suddenly I was in a castle. Don't ya think that's a mean thing to do to a guy? So I just bailed on my mission.
Soma Cruz: What do you mean?
Hammer: There were a bunch of strange people gathered at the shrine. I thought they'd be good customers, so I opened up a shop.
Soma Cruz: Ahhh... Good for you...
Hammer: There're weapons all over this castle and no monsters at the front gate. Good place for a shop! Come on by! I'll give ya a good deal. Sea ya around! Wah hah hah ha...

A Man with Amnesia
???: Strange... I sense a dark power within you... Who are you?

Soma Cruz: It is rude to ask questions before introducing yourself.
J: Yes, you're right. I can't give you my name, but people call me J.
Soma Cruz: People call you "J"? Why hide your real name? Are you a criminal?
J: No. I have amnesia. I'm told that I was in an accident in 1999. When I woke up in the hospital, I had forgotten my name and my past.
Soma Cruz: Oh, I see... Well, my name's Soma.
J: Your dark power...? Were you born with it?
Soma Cruz: I don't really know. I first noticed it when I entered this castle...
J: I see... I guess I was mistaken.
Soma Cruz: Mr. J, why have you come to this castle?
J: Call me J. I am filled with fear when I hear the name Dracula. I came here because of the prophecy. I also thought my memory might return. In fact, since my arrival, I have felt like my memory is returning.
Soma Cruz: And your accident occurred in 1999...? Maybe Dracula was involved...?
J: I fear you are correct... Especially since I have magical powers...
Soma Cruz: J, are you an exorcist?
J: Well, you might say that. But I work for no one but myself. I must be going now. I'm sure we'll meet again.
Soma Cruz: Yes, see ya...

Graham Jones: So we meet again! I'm glad to see you're unscathed.

Soma Cruz: Good to see you, too. Uh... I've got something I want to ask you.
Graham Jones: Sure, go ahead.
Soma Cruz: Someone told me that YOU are to inherit Dracula's powers...
Graham Jones: I take it that lady from the church told you that, didn't she?
Soma Cruz: It's not true, is it?
Graham Jones: The term 'inherit' is incorrect.
Soma Cruz: It's true then!
Graham Jones: I was born on the very day that Dracula was destroyed... So, in short, that means that I AM Dracula!
Soma Cruz: That can't be right!? You've been so kind and friendly to me!
Graham Jones: That is because I don't consider you a threat to my mission. But that being said, you have made it this far... I sense a power within you. Do tell me... what kind of power has awoken within you?
Soma Cruz: ......... The power to rule...
Graham Jones: WHAT!? You foolish boy! That's impossible!
Soma Cruz: Huh?
Graham Jones: I can't remain here any longer. I must get to the throne! Your name is Soma, right? You are wrong, Soma! I will not allow you to rule!!!

Soma Cruz: Hey, Yoko. I just ran into Graham.
Yoko Belnades: REALLY? Which way did he go?
Soma Cruz: He was in a rush to get to the throne...
Yoko Belnades: Just as I thought. There is something important in the Throne Room.
Soma Cruz: I'm sorry, Yoko.
Yoko Belnades: Wha...what's wrong with you all of a sudden?
Soma Cruz: He's not who I thought he was. He was kind to me only because he thought I was powerless.
Yoko Belnades: I see...
Soma Cruz: But his attitude changed suddenly when I told him about my power.
Yoko Belnades: Well, in his mind, he thinks everything in this castle is his...
Soma Cruz: So that's the reason?
Yoko Belnades: But it's better this way.
Soma Cruz: What is?
Yoko Belnades: The fact that he sees you as an enemy now means you're my comrade.
Soma Cruz: Does it?
Yoko Belnades: What? You don't want to be on my side?
Soma Cruz: No, that's not what I meant...
Yoko Belnades: Ha ha ha. It's so much fun to tease you. But this is not the time to be fooling around. Your presence here has thrown Graham into a panic. This is our chance.
Soma Cruz: What sort of chance?
Yoko Belnades: Using his cunning mind, he's been able to evade us up until now. I don't think anyone has ever seen him panic before.
Soma Cruz: I get it. Circumstances right now are making act this way...
Yoko Belnades: That's exactly right. This is an excellent opportunity to trap him. Well, I must be on my way. See you.

Soma Cruz: I can't just leave her like this! She's my friend!
Genya Arikado: Do not worry about her. I believe there are other things you need to do.
Soma Cruz: Graham went to the throne. What's there? What are you hiding from me?!
Genya Arikado: I cannot say. You must go there yourself. And if you don't... you will lose Mina... and Yoko as well! Their fate is in your hands!
Soma Cruz: Damn you! I...don't like your attitude, but I don't think you're lying. I feel as if I'm being manipulated. I don't like it, but I'll do as you say. But if we ever escape from this castle alive, I want to know everything.

Genya Arikado: Fair enough. Now be on your way.

J: Ohhh...

Soma Cruz: J, what's wrong? You look pale.
J: D-don't worry... just now... all of my memories came flooding back.
Soma Cruz: What!?
(J stands up)
J: It seems that your dark power triggered the return of my memories. Just like I guessed... I have quite an extensive history with Dracula.
Soma Cruz: I thought so...
Julius Belmont: My real name is Julius Belmont... I am a descendant of a clan that has fought against Dracula for ages.
Soma Cruz: And the person who destroyed Dracula in 1999 was...
Julius Belmont: Yes. It was me... but there were others who assisted me...
Soma Cruz: So, if Dracula is revived again, just as it is written in the prophecy...
Julius Belmont: Then I must destroy him! It is my destiny.
Soma Cruz: You haven't met a man named Graham yet, have you?
Julius Belmont: Graham? Oh, you mean that missionary, right? I met him a little while ago. But when he saw my face, he turned and ran.
Soma Cruz: He told me that he was Dracula.
Julius Belmont: I did sense Dracula's powers at work within him... but it's difficult to believe that he's Dracula... rather... I think... No, forget it. It is nothing more than a hunch.
Soma Cruz: Huh?
Julius Belmont: Assuming that he is Dracula, I won't be able to kill him yet.
Soma Cruz: Why not?
Julius Belmont: I need my weapon.
Soma Cruz: Your weapon?
Julius Belmont: Yes. It's a whip that was handed down to me. It's called "Vampire Killer." In 1999, I sealed it in this castle to weaken his spirit and magical powers.
Soma Cruz: That means it's in this castle somewhere?
Julius Belmont: Yes. And I know exactly where it is. I'll go and get it now.
Soma Cruz: Alright. Please be careful.
Julius Belmont: Pray that my hunch proves to be wrong. Farewell for now.

(Soma runs toward Graham)
Soma Cruz: Dracula's power doesn't concern me! I came here to find a way out of this castle.
Graham Jones: With my new abilities, I can get you out of here quite easily... You, however, have some property of mine in your possession. The souls of MY demons are under YOUR control. Can I forgive such a crime? NO! NEVER!
Soma Cruz: If I knew how, I'd return them all to you right here and now!
Graham Jones: Even if you return them, you have still committed the crime of stealing. Don't you know that? It's only right that thieves receive the punishment they deserve.
Soma Cruz: You are one selfish bastard!
Graham Jones: You are guilty of grand theft. Therefore, I sentence you to death!
Soma Cruz: You're insane!
Graham Jones: And, as a special treat, I myself will deliver the punishment!

Soma Cruz: I feel like the castle is still calling out to me... Maybe the castle is where I truly belong...?

Genya Arikado: Your soul and Dracula's magical powers are one and the same. No matter what we did, this day was destined to come. That being so, I decided to awaken you somewhere I could use MY powers.
Soma Cruz: Huh? What do you mean? I don't understand.
Genya Arikado: Because you are now one with him, an evil spirit must be flowing into you.
Soma Cruz: Yes. It started not too long ago, and it's slowly filling me up... I'm doing all that I can to keep from being consumed by it.
Genya Arikado: Once you have finished absorbing all of it, his powers will be yours. You will then become the evil count... I do not want to let that happen!
Soma Cruz: Neither do I!
Genya Arikado: I know. That is why I chose the dangerous route.
Soma Cruz: The dangerous route?
Genya Arikado: The evil in this spirit comes from those who seek chaos and destruction. So we need to cut off the source of the chaos influencing the spirit.
Soma Cruz: Is that possible?
Genya Arikado: This castle is a product of Dracula's magic. It's a spiritual world. My point is this... a stream of chaos exists within this castle as well. There is a place where only you, Dracula, can go. That's where the chaos is!
Soma Cruz: I'll go, I'm not afraid... but what do I do once I get there?
Genya Arikado: You'll have to stop it using your own strength. You already succeeded in reaching the throne. I'm sure you can do it.
Soma Cruz: If it will make me myself again, I'll do whatever it takes.
Genya Arikado: As long as my powers continue to affect this place, the flow of the evil spirit into you will be slowed down. Go quickly!

Soma Cruz: I'm going... I appreciate your help...

Defeating Julius
Soma Cruz: STOP! I'VE HAD ENOUGH!

Julius Belmont: Wh...why... Why won't you finish me off?
Soma Cruz: You took it easy on me. I could tell. The strength of a Belmont... No... the strength of a vampire hunter is greater than this.
Julius Belmont: ....... When I fought you, I felt the evil spirit within you. But there's more... I also sensed Soma's spirit. And that's more than enough to stop me.
Soma Cruz: .......... I've got a favor to ask of you.
Julius Belmont: What is it?
Soma Cruz: From here, I will set off to fight against my own fate. If I lose the battle... and become the reincarnation of evil, I want you to kill me.
Julius Belmont: ........ I will... I promise.
Soma Cruz: Thanks... now I can go into this battle without reservations.

Julius Belmont: Farewell, my friend. Don't let me use that whip again.

Soma Cruz: I'm finally here... I wonder if I can do this alone...

Mina Hakuba: You're not alone.
Soma Cruz: Wha...what?
Mina Hakuba: Everyone remaining in the castle combined their powers to contact you.
Soma Cruz: Does that mean they all know... that I'm Dracula?
Mina Hakuba: Yes... Arikado told us everything...
Soma Cruz: I bet they're all afraid of me...
Mina Hakuba: No, not at all! At first, we were shocked. But everyone believes you'll get through this. I'm going to send you a message from them now. Listen...
Hammer: You'll visit my shop again, won't ya? I'll be waitin' for ya.
Yoko Belnades: Good morning, Soma. I just heard about what happened to you... I told you this before... You are who you are, and you mustn't let him win.
Julius Belmont: To the man who beat me... don't disappoint me now.
Genya Arikado: This is your last chance, and ours as well. I'm counting on you...
Soma Cruz: They're all... rooting for me...
Mina Hakuba: ... You can do it... because I believe in you.

Soma Cruz: Mina... Alright, here I go!

Yoko Belnades: Hello, Soma. Congratulations. I've got another job that I must attend to, so I have to go now. When I heard that YOU were Dracula, I was shocked... I was also just waking up, you know. If you think about it, though, everything turned out OK. Ha ha ha... ... I'll never forget your strength and courage. And I haven't thanked you yet for rescuing me. So...thanks. You're like a younger brother to me. It was fun, and I hope we meet again. Goodbye.

Hammer: Hey there! Much obliged for your business at my shop. Back at the castle, I realized my true calling. Fighting's not for me. I think I'll quit the army and open up a shop sometime soon. Promise me you'll come. I'll give ya a good deal.
Julius Belmont: You fought well. When we fled the castle, I felt the power from Vampire Killer fading away. I don't know what that means. But I won't have to do anything for the time being. Farewell. May we meet again.
Genya Arikado: The path you took was the most challenging one. You did well. For God to be good, evil is an absolute necessity in this world. In the future, someone may follow again in Dracula's dark footsteps. At that time, perhaps we'll meet again. Farewell... In my mother's name, I send thanks to you.
Mina Hakuba: ...Wake up... Wake up...Wake...
(Soma's location is revealed to be in Mina's arms atop the Hakuba Shrine, away from the castle)
Mina Hakuba: Wake up... Wake up, Soma.
Soma Cruz: Uh, ungh...
Mina Hakuba: Soma! Thank god, you woke up.
Soma Cruz: Heard you folks speak. I was saved by you all again.
Mina Hakuba: Again?
Soma Cruz: Yes... I couldn't have won the last battle by myself. Everyone's kind words and encouragement led me to victory...
Mina Hakuba: Yes...
Soma Cruz: Remember, inside of me, Dracula's power lies sleeping. It's not evil, but... it's definitely changed me.
Mina Hakuba: It's OK. If anything ever happens again, everyone will rush to your aid.
Soma Cruz: That's right. I guess they will. Look, the eclipse has ended.

(The two watch on as the eclipse ends)

Mina Hakuba: Soma! Oh, thank God! I was so worried about you... Arikado told me that you would be okay, but I was worried. I thought you would never wake up.
(Soma stands up)
Soma Cruz: I heard everybody's voices... You saved my life...again!
Mina Hakuba: AGAIN?
Soma Cruz: Yes... I couldn't have won the last battle by myself. Everyone's kind words and encouragement led me to victory...
Mina Hakuba: I'm so glad that your experience didn't change you.
Soma Cruz: But it DID change me...
Mina Hakuba: In what way?
Soma Cruz: I'm a lot cooler now!
Mina Hakuba: Yeah... you HAVE changed. The old Soma would never have said that.
Soma Cruz: Remember, inside of me, Dracula's power lies sleeping. It may not be evil anymore, but, it's definitely changed me.
Mina Hakuba: It's OK. If anything ever happens again, everyone will rush to your aid.
