"Walk the path that is meant for you without fear... For you are no longer alone..."
— Saint Germain, to Hector

Template:Castlevania character



Saint Germain, a mysterious time traveller with the ability to shift his position in respect to time, implores Hector not to pursue Isaac before Garibaldi Temple, and is later revealed as an enemy of Zead, as the priest has a violent tussle with him, while Saint Germain uses his timetravelling powers to avoid Zead's blows, and comments he shall continue to return until he surrenders. Later, he falls into a trap organized by Zead and is holed up, stripped of his power, in the Eneomaos Machine Tower. He dresses as a gentleman, complete with elegant top hat, and speaks quickly in a polite British accent. Although not a true villain, he does fight Hector at one point, although not for evil purposes, rather, only to stop him form going further against Isaac. Upon his defeat, he acknowledges Hector's power and advises him to follow the path set for him. Before he vanishes in his trademark golden portal, he asks Hector to give Zead his regards. Upon completion of the game, St. Germain appears, addressing the player, and talks briefly about destiny and purpose. He often expresses knowledge of the future, and more often still, his words are somewhat ambiguous, especially in his fight against Zead.
