The Wygol Village is the second stage of Lords of Shadow Chapter 5. It is named after the Wygol Village that appeared in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. The level's unlockable trial requires Gabriel to finish the level without allowing Zobek to kill a single Ghoul.
Wygol was the last outpost of humanity in vampire territory, located very close to the Vampire Castle. The area was extremely cold and many died due to the climate. Once news of Gabriel Belmont's assault on the castle started to spread, the vampires, led by Lieutenant Brauner, attacked the village in an attempt to lure Belmont to them. The vampire slayer killed Brauner and was led to the castle sewers by grateful villagers.
In Lords of Shadow 2, a portion of the village was crushed by the broken Siege Titan and was later completely obliterated by the Great Explosion after the battle between Dracula and Roland de Ronceval. Over the centuries the village was eventually re-colonized and expanded over the remains of Dracula's castle. This grew into a modern-day metropolis, named Castlevania City.
This village is one of the last vestiges of human civilization left in this place of death and cold. It lies not far from the Vampire's Castle, our next objective. I have some matters to attend to here, matters that could spoil our plans. I will deal with them and try to rendezvous with Gabriel later. He has not slept in days, not since the girl. The pain is etched in his face still, but in his soul only hatred drives him. We will not speak of it. He must not know I have seen everything, that I have followed him this far.
