Quotes

  • Perhaps this is all loyalty buys in a world without love: pain in the night and death on your master's floor. Perhaps that's all that awaits me, too. But you didn't mind; you came home regardless. The lesson here is that I shouldn't care either. Dracula will bring a pure world into being; I believe that. I believe him. I want, of all things, a pure world, a clean world, where there is only loyalty and only love.

Trivia

  • 43007716 244570156404934 3839427138847506432 n
    Isaac's outfit design is based on his appearance in Akumajō Dracula: Yami no Juin - Fukushū no Jokyoku, a promotional Japanese comic booklet where he is seen wearing his full Devil Forgemaster uniform.
  • Unlike the two characters from Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, from where they were based on, Isaac and Hector are not shown to be rivals in the animated series. In fact, Isaac mentions that he has respect for Hector.
  • Despite their origins in Curse of Darkness, in which they excelled in the art of summoning Innocent Devils, the main occupation of both Devil Forgemasters in the animated series is to perform rituals similar to necromancy to either bring people and animals back from the dead (probably victims of previous raids) or transmogrify their corpses into creatures of the night in order to enlist them in Dracula's army.
  • The scars Isaac has on his face were apparently made by himself as a result of his frequent self-inflicted punishments, implied to have been done with his own dagger due to their shape.
  • Isaac's physical appearance seems to be based on his voice actor, Adetokumboh M'Cormack.
