"A priest who acts as your guide. Not the courageous type. Runs the store."
— Official background

Vincent Dorin (ヴィンセント・ドリン Vu~insento Dorin?) is a character in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. He is a priest who also acts as a merchant due to his rural church supposedly running low on money. He recognizes Jonathan on sight by his whip and is amazed to be in the presence of the owner of the legendary Vampire Killer.


The duo encounters Vincent in the first area of the castle entrance, where he recognizes Jonathan wielding the Vampire Killer whip and Charlotte as a mage when he mentions a rumor about her fame, which embarrasses her. He then goes inside the castle ahead of them.

During the course of the game (in an event triggered by entering his shop after defeating Death in the Tower of Death), he gets bitten by a vampire, giving the player the choice to either cure him or let him be consumed by vampirism.

Although he promises to lower the price of his stock if the player cures him, he does no such thing upon being cured. Curing him or not merely changes his dialogue in the good ending.

  • The player is able to attack Vincent while he is under the effects of vampirism. Attacking him more than five times will cause him to run away. However, he will return if the player simply revisits the room.
