Saving Tera (A nun senses someone while praying and turns)
Maria: Are you okay? You're saved now!
(The nun approaches Maria) ???: Oh, God in heaven! You've answered my prayers! Maria: Hey, thank Him later. Come on, we've got to go! ???: You are truly an angel. May I ask you your name? Maria: It's Maria Renard. What's yours? ???: Maria, the Holy Mother... My name is Tera. Sister Tera. Maria: Holy Mother...? Do you need help getting out of here? Tera: I'd be unworthy of such attention. Please, let me find my own way out, and see your mission through. Maria: But... Tera: Oh, and please accept this. It's nothing compared to your power, I'm sure, but if it helps...then there's been a purpose to my time here.
(Maria obtains Tera's Necklace) Maria: All right, I understand. Now run for it before things get too dangerous. See you!
Saving Iris (A young maiden senses someone and turns)
???: ?! Who's there? Maria: It's okay! I'm Maria! Maria Renard. I'm here to save you, Miss. ???: Saved by a little girl...? I-I'm sorry. My name's Iris. Thank you for saving me. Maria: My pleasure. See you later! Iris: Wait a minute! Maria: ?! Iris: Let me see your arm. Maria: Okay. Iris: I thought so. You're injured. Maria: Not really. Iris: Oh, believe me. If we don't treat that right now, you're looking at infection, and then putrification. Maria: What?! W-W-What do we do? Iris: (smiles) I'm joking. Here, just let me bind that up. My father's a doctor.
(Iris aids Maria) Iris: There you go. All better. Maria: Phew. Thank you, Miss Iris. Iris: No problem. Here, let me give you this too.
(Maria obtains Iris's Charm) Maria: What is it? Iris: Just a good luck charm. To help keep you safe.
Maria: It feels...powerful! Well, time to go. See you!
Maria: !! What are you doing?! I know you! You're the bad man! Shaft: And I know you. I know your power. If that Belmont man hadn't interfered before, then... Maria: You're going to pay for what you did! I'll show you! Shaft: Ha! Will you? Servants, come forth from the gates of Hell! Attack! Rid my master's castle of this pest!
(Shaft moves away with laughter. As Maria defeats all bosses, Shaft returns)
Shaft: Hmm, intriguing. Strong indeed. Very well, then. Face me!
Vampire Annette (Maria sees Annette is on her knees)
Maria: !! Annette! Annette: M-Maria... You're safe! ...What took you so long? Maria: Annette... You're bad now, just like them!
(Annette turns into a vampire) Annette: It's not bad, Maria. It's wonderful. Come here. Play with us. Maria: No! I came to beat the bad man! Not join him like you! Annette: You're turning your back on me, just like Richter! You stupid little brat! Very well! I'll teach you to respect your elders!
Saving Annette (Annette hears Maria is calling her and turns)
Maria: Annette! Annette: !! Maria, what are you doing here? Maria: Richter saved me. He's strong, just like you said! Annette: Thank goodness. Richter's all right. Maria: Mm-hmm! And I've been helping him! Annette: Hmm? With what? Maria: You know, fighting the bad man. Annette: Maria, that's... You can't! It's much too dangerous! Maria: No, no, I'll be fine. Really, it's okay! Anyway, time to go.
Annette: Maria, wait! Richter... Please protect that girl. Please...
The Brink of Death (Maria enters Dracula's Throne Room)
Dracula: Are you lost, little one? Maria: I know exactly where I am! I've come here for you! Dracula: Ah, your blood sings with power! Such a treat, and on the eve of such a glorious feast! Come, girl, and feed your master! Maria: Uh-uh! You want blood, come get it yourself!
(Dracula stands up from his throne and raises the wind to Maria)
Maria: All right, Mr. Bad Man, ready to die?
(Suddenly, Shaft shows up) Shaft: I will not allow this! Maria: What's going on?! Shaft: Count Dracula must not be allowed to lose!
(Shaft and Dracula vanishes away) Maria: They got away... And I almost had him, too!
Dracula: Completely impossible! Beaten by a little girl! Maria: Ha! Didn't you know? Good always wins! Dracula: Child... It's power that always wins. Good and evil are only words, illusions created by the powerful. Maria: I don't know what you mean, but I know you hurt a lot of people. No matter what you say, that's wrong! Dracula: So even as the world decays, innocence endures in eyes like yours. Fascinating...
