I swallowed various feelings deep within me. My hometown was destroyed.
My father, Dracula, lost everything after the death of his loved one.
Thus, humanity walked to its own destruction.
Did my mother not love their fragility?
Yet, all hope was lost after her death.
The only thing left is my abominable blood,
The only wandering path, the Darkness...

- Dracula X ~Nocturne in the Moonlight~ Art Works - Another Symphony of the Night comic done by Ayami Kojima.

- The pose Dracula was in when mourning for Lisa's death via crucifixion in the comic was later reused in promotional artwork for Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, also done by Ayami Kojima, where Mathias Cronqvist is seen mourning for Elisabetha in a similar manner, foreshadowing that character's connection to Dracula.
