"She is a mysterious old witch and a servant of Elizabeth. She obstructs the vampire hunters quest by controlling demons."
— European instruction booklet, page 56.

Drolta Tzuentes (ドロテア・ツェンテス Dorotea Tsentesu?, lit. "Dorottya Szentes") is a character in Castlevania: Bloodlines. She is a mysterious old witch and servant of Elizabeth Bartley who used dark magic in order to bring her mistress back to life.

Character's history

Some time before 1917, Drolta used black magic to bring Count Dracula's niece, Elizabeth Bartley, back to life. The two then set in motion a plot to resurrect the Dark Lord. Drolta used her magic to animate a Mecha-Knight in an attempt to waylay Belmont descendant, John Morris, and his friend, Eric Lecarde. The two heroes eventually foiled the women's efforts and destroyed her along with Elizabeth.

The American Castlevania: Bloodlines instruction booklet states that Drolta was an "amateur witch" who "casts a spell which inadvertently brings Elizabeth Bartley back to life". However, the Japanese instruction booklet doesn't have such a description.


  • After the defeat of Dracula's first form, a cloaked magic user takes over. This may be Drolta, due to the similarities with artwork of her in the Japanese Vampire Killer instruction booklet.[1]
  • Drolta is based on Dorottya Szentes (Dorotya Semtész), one of Erzsébet Báthory's servants who was one of three people said to have been tried, convicted, and executed as accomplices to the crimes committed by the "Blood Countess".
  • According to Beep! MegaDrive, Drolta might have been an alternate form of Death, explaining her supposed absence from the game.[2]
