First Encounter with Walter
Man: Welcome to my castle. Pleased to meet you. I am the master of the castle, Walter Bernhard.

Leon: (pointing at Walter) Give back Sara!!
Walter: Do not rush. Your lady is here.
Leon: Sara!! Why? Why won't she answer?
Walter: It seems the lady is tired. Hmm, it seems you are, too.
(Walter's eyes turn red)
Walter: Rest a while...
Leon: What?!
(Leon struggles, swings the whip to Walter, but fails)
Walter: Well... That whip is Rinaldo's, is it?
Leon: It can't be! My attack doesn't work...
Walter: I see. It's just as that knight said. Very well. You've made it this far. I'll return her as a reward.
Leon: Sara!
Walter: I'll be in the throne room on the highest floor. I look forward to you making it there alive.
(Walter walks away as he laughs evilly)

(Leon checks Sara if she's all right and finally she wakes up)
Sara: Leon... Leon, is that you?
Leon: You're awake! Thank goodness... A friend is waiting for us. Let's go see him first.

(Near Rinaldo's Cottage, Leon rushes Sara)
Leon: Sara, this way.
(Sara follows Leon, but she falls suddenly)
Leon: Sara!! What's the matter?!
Rinaldo: What's all this racket?
Leon: Rinaldo! Sara suddenly...!
Rinaldo: On, no! You go on inside.
Leon: But...
Rinaldo: There is nothing you can do. Wait quietly inside.
Leon: All right... Please take care of Sara.

(At Rinaldo's Cottage, Leon worries about Sara's state, going here and there)
Leon: How is Sara doing?!
Rinaldo: She's sleeping in the back.
Leon: (sigh of relief) What in the world happened?
Rinaldo: The barrier around this house... It responded.
Leon: (scarily) What are you saying? That's... That's not possible.
Rinaldo: There's no use hiding it, so I will tell you plainly. That girl has been tainted by the vampire.
Leon: (angrily) You're lying! That can't be!
Rinaldo: Why would I lie to you? You must accept the truth!
Leon: Please, tell me you're lying.
Rinaldo: She is not a vampire yet, to be precise. She won't even be aware of it... But as time passes, she will gradually lose her humanity. Like my daughter...
Leon: Is there anything I can do?
Rinaldo: The only thing would be to defeat Walter immediately.
Leon: Tell me, is this whip effective against him?
Rinaldo: Why do you ask?
Leon: I tried to strike him with it, but it didn't seem to work.
Rinaldo: It is as I thought, then... it didn't even work for you...
Leon: Isn't there another way?
Rinaldo: Well, there is, but...
Leon: Tell me! I'll do anything!
Rinaldo: Then let me ask you this. Can you kill that girl?
Leon: (shocked) What are you saying...?
Rinaldo: If you make the whip complete, you can destroy him. But in order to do that, you need a tainted soul-- One that trusts you and one that you can trust...
Leon: I abandoned everything in order to save Sara! I could... I could never do such a thing.
Rinaldo: Even knowing she's not human, it's a difficult thing to do. I'm not surprised.
Leon: Is she really... Is Sara really...
Rinaldo: There's no doubt about it. I confirmed the bite mark. The fact that the barrier responded is proof above all else.
(Suddenly, the door knocks)
Leon: Sara?!

Rinaldo: Did she overhear us just now?!

Cloi-mathias-cronqvist2Mathias Cloi-walter-bernhard2Walter DeathDeath

Mathias Appears
Walter: (injured) It can't be... This should not have happened...

Leon: Sara's suffering... and Rinaldo's grief...
(Leon walks towards Walter)
Leon: Carve them into your cursed body and perish.
Walter: (dying) But... With my powers, I will surely come back to life... I could not obtain the Crimson Stone, but someday, it will be mine!
(Suddenly, Death laughs at Walter)
Walter: No! You betrayed me?!
Death: I shall take your soul!
(Walter dies in despair and fades away)
Death: This power... I offer to the king who wields the Crimson Stone!

Mathias: (breath of relief) Excellent... I never spent a better night.
Leon: (shocked) Mathias!
Mathias: You didn't disappoint me, Leon. I knew without a doubt that you would accomplish this.
Leon: What is the meaning of this?
Mathias: I needed a powerful vampire's soul. That is all.
Leon: Are you saying you used me?!
Mathias: Not just you. Your betrothed, Sara, Rinaldo, and Walter... I used all of you. I never thought it would go so well, though.
Leon: (pointing at the Crimson Stone) Is that - that stone... the Crimson Stone?
Mathias: Ah, you know it? I'm impressed. I made Walter's soul mine with the power of this stone.
Leon: I sense a rage from this whip... Mathias! You abandoned humanity?!
Mathias: That's right! By becoming a vampire, I obtained eternal life. That was my goal. It was my revenge against God!
Leon: (shocked) Revenge against God?!
Mathias: We have risked our lives and fought for the sake of God... But God mercilessly stole away the one I loved most... When all I ever wished for was Elisabetha's safety!! If limited life is God's decree, then I shall defy it!! And within that eternity, I shall curse Him forevermore!
Leon: (sighs sadly) Mathias...
Mathias: Leon, after what you've been through, you should know...
Leon: Yes, you're right. I do understand how you feel... I, too...
Mathias: Then come with me. I will give you eternity, too.
Leon: You wretched fool.
Mathias: What?
Leon: Is this what the woman you loved would have wanted? The Mathias I know would not have loved such a woman.
(Mathias looks downward)
Mathias: Elisabetha was a kind, honorable woman. She was concerned only for me to the very end... That is why I hate Him! Am I wrong?! (pointing at Leon) Did you not defeat Walter with hatred in your heart, too?
Leon: Yes. I'd be lying if I claimed otherwise. But defeating him... No, preventing others from suffering the same cursed fate... That was Sara's dying wish...
Mathias: (shocked)
Leon: Granting my beloved's wish. That is all I can do to prove my love to Sara. Eternity without her would be nothing but emptiness.
Mathias: Leon... I thought that you would understand... Dawn is coming... Farewell, Leon. Death, he's all yours.
(Mathias becomes a bat and flies away)
Leon: Stop!
(Death blocks Leon)
Leon: No!

Death: By my master's orders, you'll be destroyed here and now!
