Older Maria in Sympony of the Night

Maria Renard sets off on a journey to Dracula's Castle in search of Richter Belmont in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. There she runs into Alucard several times and requests he help her find Richter. Maria is not playable in the original PSX version, but two later editions of the game feature two different styles of play for her.

In the English version of the game, Maria is voiced by Kimberly Forsythe.

First Encounter with Maria
Maria: You seem human and yet... What do you here?

Alucard: .......... I've come to destroy this castle.
Maria: Then we have the same purpose. I'll trust you for now. I'm Maria. Who are you?
Alucard: .......... Alucard.
Maria: Not the talkative type I can see. Well, perhaps we'll meet again if you live that long. Farewell.

Second Encounter with Maria
Maria: So we meet again, Alucard.

Alucard: It seems so.
Maria: As friendly as ever, I see. It's strange. This castle is different than I remember it.
Alucard: ......... This castle is a creature of Chaos. It may take many incarnations.
Maria: So I can't trust my memories, huh? Oh well, I'll do my best. Good luck.

Third Encounter with Maria
Maria: Impressive. You're very strong.

Alucard: .......... What is it you want? You didn't come here to tell me that.
Maria: You're right. Do you know the name Richter Belmont?
Alucard: Of the Belmont Clan? Of course, but...
Maria: He disappeared about a year ago and I'm sure he's here. If you see him, please let me know.
Alucard: As you wish, my lady.
Maria: Thank you. So you do know how to be a gentleman.

Bad Ending
Alucard: So you made it.

Maria: Alucard! How is Richter?
Alucard: I'm sorry...
Maria: I see... Thank you for stopping him... Do you suppose that this too is Fate?
Alucard: ......... So your journey is over as well then?
Maria: No, not until I learn what caused Richter's madness.
Alucard: I understand... Well then, may the Gods guard you along the way. Farewell.
Maria: You as well Alucard. Good-bye.

Fourth Encounter with Maria
Maria: So did you find Richter?

Alucard: I don't know if he's the one you're looking for, but I found a Belmont.
Maria: Really? So he is here!
Alucard: But the one I saw was the enemy. He was the lord of this castle...
Maria: That can't be true! You're wrong! I... I must go now!

Obtaining Holy Glasses
Maria: Alucard?

Alucard: That voice? Maria?
Maria: I'm sorry. You were right. He has joined forces with the enemy...
Alucard: So it was a Belmont after all...
Maria: But someone must be controlling him... Whatever we do, we can't harm Richter.
Alucard: But he must be stopped.
Maria: I know. Well...here. Take these with you.
Alucard: What are these?
Maria: If you wear them, you can see beyond evil illusions.
Alucard: Thank you. 'Tis best then if you pray for the soul of your friend.

Reverse Castle Revived
Richter: No... What have I done...

Maria: Thank you Alucard, for saving Richter.
Richter: Alucard!? The same Alucard who fought alongside my ancestor Trevor Belmont?... That was over 300 years ago!
Alucard: No time for small talk. Is the person who controlled you in that castle over there?
Richter: Yes, I think so...
Alucard: Maria, take Richter and leave here. I'll finish this.
Maria: All right... Good luck.

Best Ending
Alucard: So you made it.

Maria: Alucard! I'm glad your all right!
Richter: I'm sorry. 'Tis my fault that you had to fight your own father...
Alucard: Fear not. I had my own reasons for destroying him.
Richter: It must have been painful for you.
Alucard: Indeed. But you must always remember that the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing...
Richter: I understand.
Maria: Alucard, what will you do now?
Alucard: The blood that flows in my veins us cursed. 'Twould be best for this world if I were to disappear forever.
Maria: ......... I see...
Alucard: Farewell then. We'll not meet again.
Maria: ......... Alucard...
Richter: Don't you want to go after him, Maria?
Maria: ......... I'm sorry... I can't let him disappear from my life.
Richter: It's all right. Go after him. Perhaps you can save his haunted soul.
Maria: Thank you, Richter... Fare thee well.
Richter: And yourself, dear lady.
