II. Characters
__________
----------

~Jonathan Morris~

Not only is he a kid that goes to my school, but he's the main character of
the game. Jonathan is a questionably dim-witted eighteen-year-old seeking
to defeat Dracula with the legendary Vampire Killer. His father was able to
wield the whip, but Jonathan can't because his vampire killer ancestry has
worn from his blood. His best attribute is his unwavering determination.


~Charlotte Aulin~

This hot...er... haughty sixteen-year-old assistant magician to Jonathan was
the vampire killer's childhood friend. She is more together and intelligent
than Jonathan, so she serves an important role in keeping him alive.


~Wind~

Wind is a deceased spirit that dies at the age of fifty. He was killed when
Brauner, a vampire, attempted to turn him into a monster of Dracula'a Castle.


~Brauner~

Brauner is a vengeful vampire who seeks to destory the human race out of
hatred. He resurrected Dracula's Castle purely for its power.


~Stella~

Stella is a sword wielder and eldest daughter of Brauner. She, too, believes
humans are evil pests.


~Loretta~

Completely devoid of emotion, Loretta, Brauner's youngest daughter, serves 
as a stellar magician. She is second in hand to Stella.


~Vincent~

A greedy priest, Vincent is Jonathan and Charlotte's guide throughout the game.
He is mostly interested in saving the church.
