"Isaac is a Devil Forgemaster who is equally as cruel as he is loyal to Dracula. He'll do whatever it takes to make sure Dracula's plan come to fruition."
— Isaac's profile description
See also: Isaac

Isaac is a major antagonist in the Castlevania animated series, serving as one of Lord Dracula's two human generals in his army (the other being Hector).

He is voiced by Adetokumboh M'Cormack in the English version of the show.

Background

Isaac is a Devil Forgemaster under Lord Dracula's orders. He was abused by a former master and bears a grudge against him in addition to other humans who harmed him during his lifetime, including brigand magicians who wanted to sell his body parts and whom Dracula rescued him from. He joins Dracula on his revenge campaign against mankind. While Isaac had a very difficult childhood and was severely mistreated, he managed to travel across much of Africa and the Middle East as a child and learned magic from a renegade occultist's books.[1]

Appearance and personality

Isaac's appearance greatly differs from his Curse of Darkness design. He appears as a tall, bald man with dark-colored skin. He wears the Devil Forgemaster uniform, the same outfit as Hector. He has the outward appearance and quiet, peaceful demeanor of a Sufi ascetic, but with a great intellect and hides his deepest emotions.[1] He inflicts pain on himself in a masochistic way, as a penitence for his "corrupted" human body and soul. He is fanatically loyal to Dracula, because he was the only person who respected him as a human being. Isaac views Dracula as both as a master and as the only true friend he ever had, and will kill any threat to Dracula without a second thought. He is distraught when Dracula banishes him to a desert (in order to spare him from being slain by Trevor, Sypha and Alucard). After killing some bandits, Isaac decides to wage a war against humanity on his own, reviving the corpses of his assailants to serve in his army.

Powers and abilities

  • Expert combatant: Unlike his fellow Forgemaster, Hector, Issac has superb fighting skill, being able to kill a band of bandits effortlessly with his dual weapons. Issac also overpowered and slew Godbrand, who was an extremely strong vampire general.
  • Necromancy: Isaac can bring creatures back to life from the dead; unlike how Hector performs resurrections, the corpses he manipulates scream in pain while being revived and changed.
  • Devil Forging: Isaac has the power to create new creatures of the night from corpses; he forges using a dagger rather than using a hammer like Hector. Additionally, Isaac's creations have a red glow in their eyes, as opposed to Hector's blue.

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.
