☩ ℜequiem of Memories ☩
The year is 1897. Exactly 100 years since the the dark priest Shaft brainwashed Richter Belmont; and the dhampir Alucard rose from his tomb to banish both his father and the Demon Castle back into the dark void. The century-long cycle has ended, and dark powers radiate throughout the land as the full moon rises, bringing with it Dracula's Castle, and the Lord of Vampires himself. Fully rested and rejuvenated, he awakens with renewed bloodlust. Despite Alucard delivering his mother's last words, pleading him to forgive the humans for their sins, Dracula's rage is fueled by the darkened hearts and further atrocities of mankind, which had been poisoning the land since long before his revival.
Before his recent death, Richter's son bore him three grandchildren, which he had trained ceasely to fulfill the Belmont's destiny of vanquishing Dracula and protecting the land. The youngest, Jacob, was a gifted caster like his great-grandfather, Juste Belmont. His magics rivaled that of the Belnades clan, and he was quick witted and bright. The eldest, Aaron, was a powerful warrior. His nearly barbaric strength had earned him a reputation all his own, and he was an adept swordsman in his own right. Though for their prowess in their own areas of expertise, it was the middle child, Alexandra, who would inherit the clan's famous Vampire Killer whip. She was a skilled fighter, gifted with strength, agility, and faith-driven power. It was she that was chosen by the whip, and she who would bear the burden of their family's blood oath.
However, that was not the only burden Alexandra had come to bear. As she grew, the townsfolk came to fear her. They did not treat her poorly, but they hardly treated her at all. For the most part, the people tended to go out of their way to avoid her. She often overheard them speaking in hushed whispers: 'The resemblance is uncanny,' sometimes it was 'That girl is dangerous,' or even '...she is cursed, be weary.' She never understood why, or what she'd done to warrant such behaviors or words, but her focus was well-kept on her studies.
On the very evening that the Demon Castle emerged from the fog, the trio set out on their quest to fulfill their destiny. The townspeople had gathered to see them off, and Alexandra was surprised that many of them seemed downright worried for her. They shook her hand, patted her shoulder, and she could have sworn she heard one of them speak as they were walking away: '...the poor dear won't be coming back from this.' Their lack of faith in her only fueled her desire to prove herself.
Traveling through the dark, dense forest, the siblings finally reach the lakeside and make their final preparations. There was no turning back now. Making their way to the castle gates after crossing the massive drawbridge, the trio were tested the moment they set foot on that chaotic ground. The castle itself trembled, the entire cliffside wracked with tremors as a storm began to build overhead. Lightning arced across the sky, splitting the clouds themselves wide open and revealing the monstrosity of the inverted castle looming high above them. Between the two Clock Towers the storm continued to rage, a single bolt striking betwixt the two castles at that point. A wave of temporal energy swept across the land, bringing the Belmonts to their knees. Even despite all of the darkness they currently faced, the three of them knew that their mission was now somehow impossibly more complicated than before. Time and space have been torn asunder, and both friend and foe long gone, and yet to come, have been drawn to this place. Expect the unexpected, they were told; but nothing had prepared them for this.
The doors to the castle open ominously, awaiting the entry of those foolish enough to try to brave its dangers. Do you bask in the grace of God's light? Or do you walk amongst the shadows? The time has come to enter Dracula's Castle, and reveal your soul....
