An Empty Tome, also known as Twilight Stigmata or Dusk's Holy Mark, is a music theme originally composed by Michiru Yamane for Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. It is considered to be Shanoa's theme. It is played during the game's introduction and is the background theme for the Castle Entrance and the Library.

It also appears as Shanoa's theme in Castlevania Judgment and later in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair as a downloadable track, and also in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
