Alucard's Origin; and his mother

If that is the case, maybe the cyclops boss should be given a petrifying attack when Trevor fight him, in the original he only have the rush attack and the hammer strike, it will also give the fight more variety.

About Alucard and Grant, I think there is a lot of potential in their back histories, here are some ideas:
Grant have a pirate look in this game, the zombie imposter of SotN kind of confirms this, and there is a Ghost Ship level righ there, also if we consider the intro of Curse of Darkness, it is say that at that time Dracula was in full scale war againts the humans, so we could say that the ghost ship was a battle ship that intented a naval strike on Castlevania, Grant along his father and brothers were the leaders of the attack, unfortunately the strike failed, the sailors were killed and raised as undead and Grant was captured and locked in the clock tower, maybe by Death, Death likes the Clock Tower a lot.

As for Alucard, there is a detail about his history that was never clarified and kind of bugs me, this could be a good place to try to give it some develop, that detail is Lisa's Death, ¿When did it happen exactly? ¿was when Alucard was just a child so he could no do anything to help her? ¿Was when he was already an adult but before he develop his vampiric powers so he was still unable to help her? or when he had the power to save her, but didn't just because she asked him no to intervene, and ¿what about Dracula himself? in SotN his dialogues seen to show that he trully cared for her, and considering the history of Lament of Innocense, that just don't make sense, in first place Mathias Crovis AKA Dracula had been a vampire for several centuries, so when he meet Lisa he was already more than powerfull enough to protect her from a whole army, second his entire motivation in LoI is that his loved Elizabetha died, now that after almost four hundred years he finally meet another girl that he could love, ¿will he really let a mob of peasants kill her without doing anything to stop them? and remenber tha Drac is kind of mercyless in all the games so I doubt he will pull back just because Lisa ask him not to harm humans, (the way she did to Alucard in the dream in SotN) and about that last part... ¿was she really asking her son no to harm the people that were about to burn her alive in front of him? ¿was she suicidal? ¿even insane maybe? cause that part where she tells Alucard "watch me die" does no sound like a loving mother to me, anyway, it was suppose to be a nighmare so probably things happened in a very different way, all of that make prime material for a origin history for the heroic son of the dark lord I think.

Well you know that lisa is alucard's mother right. In sotn she was just a puppet of alucard's imagination honed by succubus who invades men's dreams. What was said in sotn may not have been true even by konami standards but just twisted by succubus vampire herself. From what i remember reading in real life dracula did have 2 sons both of whom fought with him in wars. They were top generals. But i belive part of this story is true and some of his biggest followers turned him in including one of his sons i believe to his enemy who imprisoned him,more than likely that's were alucard comes from. But dracula managed to escape via help. Only to re-rule cruelly once again after sending thousands to their horrible deaths and eventually get killed by A)either one of his own soldiers,B) a turk or C) someone dressed as an assasin who knew him. It isn't exactly clear. I think he may have also been married to a women who's named was lisa probably like Elisabeth " lisa" just a sub name of the full one. Konami usually does things like this. I've actually researched some of their charcters names. To find much of this story is somewhat true. Not all of it of course but some chracters are representations of real people at that time. Oh as for Mathias he is a vampire in Lament from what i remameber but not Dracula. He may represent his lineage though, throughout the series. That part as far as i know is made up. As for Mathias he could be a real person i don't actaully know. Also Lament of Innocence is supposed to be according to the konami line, the first belmont, who is Leon. Much later, centuries in fact, sotn is introduced and none of those chracters other than succubus herself play a role in sotn. She is a vampire/demon who seems to be lured to masters' of castle god knows what for.But yeah that's the role she seems to have in the castlevania realm. Do not quote me on all this stuff. I may be somewhat inaccurate on some of it. It is primarily based off of what i remember reading online.

Yes lastlunder, I'm aware that Lisa is Alucard's mother, I refered how that very fact is what makes specially creepy of her to ask his son to watch her die, as for the Lament of Innocence part I'm pretty sure Mathias is Dracula, you see in the game he got his hands into the "Crimson Stone" an artifact of Alchemy that alowed him to absorb for himself the power of other vampires and forge a pact with Death, and according to wath I have read this is canon by Konami, and one of the many points where the history deviates from real life, most likely cuase Mathias Crovist was somewath based on Mathias Corvinus an historical enemy of Vlad Tepes, also in the Konami version I think Dracula has only one son, Alucard, the closer thing to the top generals sons you related may be Issac and Hector, the two devil forge masters from Curse of Darkness, one of them betrays him as well, guess wich one :-)

I think Lisa was Dracula's second wife, and according to some fans possibly the reincarnation of Elizabetha. She lets herself be killed because because the mob of peasants were calling her a witch, and she knew that 1. you can't reason with mobs of peasants, and 2. if Alucard tried to stop her they'd turn on him (though it probably didn't happen exactly like the Succubus' dream -- most likely Alucard was much younger and less powerful at this point anyway). As for why Dracula didn't intervene? Well, I know the games make this hard to remember, but Dracula being around is the exception rather than the rule. He only resurrects every hundred years (or when someone collects his remains, or performs a sacrifice, or makes some magical paintings, or any one of the many other exceptions). Presumably, Drac was just between resurrections at that point -- it is a bit on an inconvenience for him each time the Belmonts kill him, after all.

@clan D. Yes i realize that some of these names are nearly exact just changed slightly by konami. I kinda like that actually. Not all of what konami has is true. It's intentional from what i gather for them to alter actual history somewhat to maket their own story line. In lament of innonecenc for example now we see that Mathias is actually the first vampire or so it may seem, never before reveiled by konami. I beat the game and yeah it plays out exact to what you say. Now in real life he and drac may have been enemies or whatever but drac wasn't even born until several centuries later. I don't know exact dates but i think mathias was around the 1024 marker and 1450 is drac. Something like that. But yeah onece again we see konami getting creative with characters names from different reference points. I heard some strange stuff about sotn. Like in the reverse caste that the scarecrow, lion and tin bot represent them from the wizard of oz. Their is even spectulation that the ape skeleton throwing the barrel is a reference to donkey kong!?? Who knows on that one though. Interesting stuff to say the least.

@Theomanzero, some of this may be more accurate than what i was saying, as it has beeen a while since i read stuff about dracula online. I do belive he had 2 sons at least. It doesn't say he doesn't have more i think it doesn't mention the others. I think the actual story of alucrad is somewhat true he had a normal name and i don't even think it was adrien but i don't actually know. It would be best if i reserached it again. All i know is drac reigns horribly after winning some wars, kills i believe in the name of god claiming people are lazy and should pay for their sins yada yads(sounds crazy like hitler imo). And murder thousand upon thousands if he didnt' get what he wanted. Either way he was captured by his traitor friends, one which i belive they said was his son, and the other some top generals but he gets outta prison in like 2 years or something and re-reign's for a short while before being killed. I don't know how accurate each site is some say slightly differnt things. Some are pretty close to each others story. he also had at one point in time a wife and a mistress and he had his mistress killed when he found out she was pregnant, cuase this would humiliate drac in front of his noble peers. The dude was just a pyshco from the start. his father and brother were killed during a battle with the dinasties i belvei aswell. And he hunted down most of the dineasties and swore to avenge their blood becaue of his brother and fathers' death. Like i said this was what i remeber reading. I don't know if it's all 100% true. Just read online and you'll see i'm at least pretty damn accurate from atleast some stories.

Well TheomanZero has a point maybe Drac was death when the mob get Lisa, but there is a problem with that theory, as far as I recall, the war between Dracula and the humans started only shortly before Castlevania Curse of Darkness, before that Dracula was a vampire but haven't started anything yet (IGA declare Castlevania Legends no canon), and well that is quite a interesting turn of events cause it will meant a Belmont, maybe Trevor's father, go and killed Dracula without provocation, just in the name of an ancient family feud againds vampires sweared by Leon almost 400 years prior, and he did that at the very time Drac was just remarried and become a father, thus leaving a helpless widow and a orphan at the mercy of murderous mob...
wow, kind of creepy, ¿A dark side Belmot falling to much in the fanatical extreme? sounds worth discussing

Well one thing is certain and i read this somewhere online is that konami does not wanna confuse trevor with the theory people get that alucard is his father. Clearly he isn't and wasn't intended to be. If Sonia who is supposed to be trevor's mother, though it isn't necessarily stated and hooked up with alucard after defeating drac then konami has pretty much indicated by making castlevania legends non-canon for this reason. They do not want people to lead themselve to believe alucard is his father. As of so far he has no further kin other than drac his father and lisa his mother. As for trevor's father he is never mentioned. It's funny how people try and put 1 and 1 together. I'd say it's up to konami to decide that. And i don't think it's they don't recognize sonia as a belmont in the lineage line it's that A) she may never have beeen even intended on being trevor's mother at all and perhaps just a relative. It isn't actually stated from what i've read. But either way i think that's why they tried to push sonia as non-canon to clear up the fact everyone things they made a mistake when in actuality they didn't, and people are only to quick to assume something that may not be at all or even intended. It's almost like someone out there played the telephone tag theory where the more people conect to more people with the gossip it turns around into something fantasmic that is blown way out of proportion.

Well, if that is indeed the case is that story on vgmuseum actually canon to konami's ideas. Even though it mentions reincarnate of Mathias to Dracula obviously years later(just look at the timeline differneces and when drac was actually born). It never mentions in Lament of innocence that Mathias is actually Drac, it mentions him being a vampire and such. Also do you see why konami tried to pull sonia off the canon line. If this were indeed the case then why in Cv3 does alucard not become mentioned as trevor's father and sonia his mother. I see little to no qualifications of this being canon to konami. For all i know it could be someone's inventive idea. Not to say they aren't plausible. But what purpose would drac serve to cahnge his name or identify for that matter. And in what rightful sense would alucard hide his identity from trevor if he was his son. I've seriously read around the net about that being the reason they wanted to make castelvania legends with sonia non-canon. I don't beliieve in cv3 this was made known. And if it is in castelvenai legends does it actually fully state alucard is the father. I'd be more realistic upon the game stories and not actually by everything you hear or read. It's probably reasons like this site why konami changed their views. I actually find mathias to be dracula harder to believe. I thought the concept of draula ressurecting every 100 years is that "he" ressurected every 100 years or whatevre the time is not "mathais as drac". Am i making sense with this. I've never heard of that in any game to be honest nor trevor being alucards' son. Maybe sonia was the motehr at the end of legends(i personally never played that game). But yeah this lineage thing i could see getting very confusing to the point of insanity. I say let obreck use his ideas for the storyline. It is after all cv3 so i'm sure most of what you hear from the original won't deviate to much i'd assume. Well either way good find on vgmuseum. At least the stories sound good don't know how valid they hold up in konami's fashion.

Well for what I have read the thing with Mathias and Dracula is kind of a continuity retcon, apparently in the first draft of Lament of Innocence, the game was going to take place jus a few years prior to Castlevania 3, so Elizabetha was going to be Lisa,and instead of dying of sickness she will be burned at the stake for witchcraft, Mathias was going to be Dracula, and Leon Belmot the father or Grantfather of Trevor, in my opinion it made more sense that how it turned, this way Alucard will be a young kid at the time her mother was executed.
The thing is that they changed the history and let a void of 400 years between the firt castlevania, Lament of Innocence (in historical continuity I meant) and the second, Castlevania 3, I guess they did it this way because Aria of Sorrow and Dawn of Sorrow are supposed to be the series's finale, so they could no make any games that take place after 2036, (Castlevania in the 23th century doesn't sound very appeling anyway) and the timeshift between 1476, the date of Castlevania 3, and 2036 was already too cramed with games, after all in the early versions of the history, Dracula needed 100 years in order to recover from his latest death, but more recent games shortened the period in order to accomodate more games in the same time span, Konami was well aware that Castlevania was one of his more profitable franchises so in order to create some "space" in the storyline to put some more game, they intentionaly move Lament of Innocence way back in the past, so now they have all the time lapse beetwen 1094 and 1476 to fill some more installements, the funny thing is that this was not necesary since the newest castlevania, Lord of Shadow, starts a whole diferent alternate history line, and that was the right idea I think, cause there is only so many times you could use the same basic premise before it starts to look a little old, anyway the void between games is already there and I guess Konami need to make at least another two more games following the original time line in order to nicely wrap it and complete it, the firt one should explain how Mathias become Dracula, the second should narrate in detail the Demon Castle war of 1999 reffered in the Aria of Sorrow & Dawn of Sorrow games.
As a side note, in Legends is suggested that Alucard loves or at least likes Sonia Belmont, but it's never suggested that they actually err... "consumate" their union, theirs could very well be a plattonic love, after all in SoN is revealed that that after Castlevania 3, Alucard sealed himself in order to purgue the world from his own acursed bloodline, considering this, it is hard to belive that he will be willing to expand such acursed bloodline by havind decendants, and with a Belmont girl of all people, anyway I don't like the idea very much, because it takes away part of the charm of the Belmonts, they are supposeed to be mortals that train extensibly to be on par with supernatural vampires, if Trevor and his decedants where part vampire, well lets say that it would be a little like cheating, on the other hand it will explain why the Belmonts where exiled from Romania for their superhuman battle prowess, cause it will be also out of fear of their demonic heritage, but them again Leon did show superhuman levels of skill and strengh in Lament of Innocence, that was many years before Trevor, and he was confirmed a 100% undiluted human badass :-D

Well i guess with all that being said the belmonts could be even viewed as a potential merlin or harry potter type people are lucky bloodline who have extra human abilities most don't have. I suppose that theory could be relevant to the game without making it sound way too unrealistic. I'm not talking ridicuolus like superman or nothing just a touch out of the ordinary type people. But as for alucard yeah i know konami didnt' like the idea people's heads were filled with sonia+alucard=trevor. I read on a couple sites at least this is waht they didn't want. As for Drac being originally Mathias well i guess i kinda must of missed that in the ending of lament when he was pissed with God and people and wanted to curse them and all. Do you think that he is perhaps an anceint descendant more than a reincarnation of drac. I mean they both have wifes with teh same name but is it just coincidental or did konami prepare it that way. You see imo they could push back the timeline far before drac like they did but it would only make sense to make it someone else. Seeing that all fanbase pretty much know that drac was around in the 1450's or so. I mean if you look at history konami is pretty accurate to his real timeline at least i'm pretty sure. But why make Mathias into drac. I don't partictularily fully believe that was the intended case nor did you even battle him in lament. He seemed to want no harm against his friend but against all other humanity for what happened. If it was the case i have to say i'm not particularly fond of it. It would make more sense for drac to have ancestors who were bad or something like Mathias. But then again will the story go even further back at some point even to perhaps teh time of christ or even further in timelineage. I mean there's plenty of spaces to put stories in timelines for konami. They shouldn't run out any time soon. My strong belief is that if they put 2 cv games out per system they'll be good for a long time. Like they did with playstation and ps2. It keeps people motivated. Hey did anyone notice when you defeat succubus and joachim that they appear to die but don't really. They turn into these little bubbles that float through the walls. I think this is how you tell they are vampires in the game. They are the only two if i recall correctly to do so. Also succubus appears later in sotn. Maybe at somepoint joachim will appear. And also they can't be dead cause the other hidden player was indeed joachim(sorry for those that i spoiled that). But i guess that bubble thing must be like mist or something. EIther way i though it was a cool concept. You know i could not tell in curse of darkness who the hell st. germain is. What is the guys purpose. I think he's a storyteller or something idk. Maybe i missed soemthing in that game. Well either way good information there wether fully konami true or not, some of that make for the premise of other potential cool games that could be made aswell.

Well according to wikipedia:

"Mathias blamed God for Elisabetha's death, and planned to revenge himself upon God by becoming immortal. He offered Leon the chance to join him in eternal life, which Leon refused. Disappointed, Mathias escaped, leaving Leon to battle Death. Leon defeated Death and sent him with a message to Mathias that "the Belmont clan will hunt the night". Series producer Koji Igarashi has confirmed that Mathias eventually becomes Dracula."

So yep Mathias is Dracula.
Also it will be awkard for Dracula to have ancestors or decendants (appart from Alucard that is) mainly because being a vampire and so impervious to age, the vampire decendants will just pile up instead of taking the place of their fathers, also I think there is a limited time lapse in witch the Castlevania games could take place, this due mainly to the aestetic aspects of the saga, it mixes medieval weaponary with barroque renainsense art and arquitecture, that is the reason the games have to historicaly take place between the middle ages and the "present", cause the style of the game ill have troubles fitting in ages before or after that period.
That say, we could also assume that Caos (The Castle itself) is capable of time bending, after all there are greek monster in many of the games (Minotaurs, Cyclops and Medusa comes to mind) and some installements allow the use of tech weaponary (Hanguns and grenades in Aria of Sorrow a Gattling gun in Curse of Darkness yes a f****g Gattling gun in the early middle ages) so I guess that with a little of imagination you could shoehorn a Castlevania tale in almost any time setting.
Whit that say, I got to tell that I think we are deviating from the original theme, the question was more like ¿Why is Alucard in those catacombs? for what I remenber from the NES game he says something like "I was waiting for someone like you" so I guess he fought Tervor in order to test him, to see if he was strongh enough to help him to defeat Dracula, that would meant he had already decide to go againts his father before meeting Trevor, and that he knew he was no match for him alone, so he was waiting for a whorty ally.

Well i guess that's that. I don't suppose i'd think about it much further but if that' what they had in mind then it is what it is. I don't write their story lines. I'd probably have things a little diffrent than that. Why have dracula a reincarnate of some other guy. It almost seems like a differnt theme all together in sense. Well it is kinda about the belmonts too and not just dracula. As for them incorporating other bosses from other themes such as the greeks' medusa, cyclops, minatour. Those seem to fit as good dark allies for dracula.I like the incorporation of bad guys like olrox and galamoth aswell in sotn. But in cv3 for some reason they keep throwing reduntant bosses you defeated back in the picutre. To bad they never put olrox in or succubus in their places or something like say for the skull knight (2) and the cyclops(2) they outta have replaced them i think. Yeah i agree the story line for cv3 is the more important thing. Lets' think back some twenty years ago or so like 1989 when that storyline was developed and no one even heard of leon and mathias. What would it be like in a more dialoque oriented 16 bit theme?

One of the goals of Super Castlevania 3, I believe.

On a side note, I hope they remake Legends with a more canon friendly storyline. I like the Idea of there being a female Belmont taking up the whip and fighting the good fight. I do remember there being fan outrage at the declaration Sonia was non-canon.

Also, maybe we should split this discussion into it's own topic?

Well I think that could be a good idea, once Super Castlevania 3 is completed, there will be a lot of resourses gathered, sprites, backgrounds, music, characters, move sets, so remaking some of the other classic Castlevania games will be a lot easier, and as I recall Castlevania Legends was pretty short compared to Castlevania 3, just one protagonist, a small amount of generic enemies and about six stages with only one path variation (The catacomb stage right before the final stage was optional I think) ¿so why don't make it here too?
The extra efftort will be to put together a decent Sonia, with good sprites, and create a set of movements for her, as her figthing style is a little different from that of male Belmonts, she had some magic that she obtained after defeating bosses (¿Soma Cruz who?) and the subweapons were collectibles instead of well... weapons, she also could unleash fireballs from the Vampire Killer, similar to Christopher and Juste (with the bullet tip equiped) and she could climb ropes, but maybe that part will be better left out of the remake, cause that movement had horrible mecanics, well is just an idea, if there is more fans of Legends and/or Sonia, post your comments, a good start may be to have Sonia as a Special Guest character in the next playable demo of Super Castlevania 3 :-)

I think a Legends remake might work best as a Metroidvania since, as you mentioned, she used magic; and magic was more widely used by protagonists of the Metroidvanias. As for adding her into SCV3, I don't see Obreck being too eager to code even more characters into the game. However, She might fit as a free skin of Trevor, along with Yoko Belnades for Sypha, SotN Alucard for CV3 Alucard, and... okay, I got nothing for Grant.

Well making a Metrovania will be a lot more of work, and I didn't mean adding her permanently to SCV3, just add her in the demo so players will have a feeling of how a Legends remake will be, also the putting her together may be easier now due to the similar skills of the already programed characters, has I recall she got only a few spells.
So here how it could be done, first use some sprites to make a Sonia skin for Trevor, let all the whip moves the same, as for her magic attacks:
-For the whip fireballs use the weak infinite throwing knives of Grant.
-The first soul spell she gets is a time stop, so use the stop watch program just add a diferent icon in the item window.
-The second one is a life recovery spell, again just use the program for the laurels or the meat but apply it as a subweapon.
-Third one damages all enemies in the screen, use the program of the holy rain item crush of Sypha just change the graphical effect.
-The fourth one is a small shockwave that is throw forward in straight line, use the program of Trevor's triple knives, just change the knives's image.
-The fifth is a instant death spell that kills all enemies in the screen, use the program from the "Rosario" Item just apply it as a subweapon.
-Finally she had a spell that makes her invisible for a certain amount of time, I guess the same code for the "Medicine Jar" item will work, but I don't recall if there is already medicine jars programed in SCV3, I think I picked one while playng the demo but I'm not sure.
Of course it will still be quite some work, but far better than start from scratch. :P

Inspired by the Legends remake idea I made a small gift of Sonia Belmont walking I think it turned out nice so I decide to show it to you guys, I made i with MSPaint combining Maria's sprites from SotN and Simon's armos from SCV4, I'm kind of a noob, so please don't judge it too hard D8

That's a pretty good looking animation, I don't suppose I could convince you to make a full skin of her for Trevor could I? :yes:

To be honest, I was talking more about Konami remaking Legends rather than any of us trying to make a fangame. :coy:

Hahaha thanks for the compliment, I would like to make a full, if people see them and support the idea maybe we could start a new trend. I will try to make the whipping animation next just to see how it turn.
On a side note I think remaking is in good hands in the hands of the gamers, after all now the tecnology exist to make 16 & 32 bit homebrew games that meet the quality standars of the professional ones made on that era, and SCV3 is the perfect proff of that.

I made some more Sonia Belmont sprites that I wanted to show, also replayed Legends, it needs a remake, badly.
Simon's quest too, but that one will be tricky, cause of the multiple mansions and paths, maybe something could be done using the Order of Ecclesia system, many small Metrovania maps witch you travel around picking destinations from a "world map".
You know just posting some ideas to keep the forum active :yes:

Looking good. Though that reminds me; character sound effects will be skinnable too, right?
