Prior Sala is a character in the Castlevania animated series. He is the mysterious leader of the monks in Lindenfeld and an antagonist who wishes to resurrect Dracula.

He is voiced by Navid Negahban in the English version of the show.



Prior Sala has a deeply intense and threatening demeanor. All who meet him instantly sense that he is twisted and that they should tread lightly around him.

Once a normal priest, Sala felt two shocks that warped him. The knowledge that the Church was behind the war on Wallachia challenged many a priest's faith. More significantly, an exceptionally powerful night creature broke into his priory and turned the monks of the priory to its will.

Since then, Sala has been broken. Letting his priory fall into filth and his congregation go insane. While he and his monks are clearly unwell, they are highly functional as defenders of the priory.

Sala still believes in God, but believes that if God is perfect then sending Lucifer, the light-bringer, to Hell was part of a greater plan. Hence Lucifer, the demons of Hell, the night creatures, and Dracula are in fact bearers of the true wisdom. Sala is always seeking to learn more about Hell, giving the educated Saint Germain an opening into the first level of the priory.

Sala worships Dracula, believing that his plan to kill all humans would bring humans to Hell, the true land of God. He hates those who betrayed Dracula and seeks to revive him by opening a gate to Hell.


  • Due to his monk status and his goals, Sala resembles Shaft, first introduced in the video game Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. However, their physical appearances are very different.
