    I. Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    	Welcome to my fourth FAQ. I am not one to write about game mechanics, 
    but I do enjoy taking words or dialogue from a game and transcribing it. This 
    should make it easier to directly quote without having to replay the game.
    
    	There will be spoilers in this FAQ. Even the villager section has one 
    pertaining on how to get a certain dialogue, so be warned.
    
    	The alternate character you can play as in this game has no story, 
    thus a section for that mode has no reason to exist here.
    
    	To quickly find a villager or section of the game, use CTRL+F while 
    typing in a location, villager name, or specific phrase. Everything should be 
    rather straight-forward. Enjoy!

    Version 1.0-11/10/08: All of the game dialogue is present, as is the dialogue 
    of the villagers. The only thing left to do is add any conversations that may 
    have been missed, should any have been missed.

    *Introduction*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (This part is voiced.)
    
    Research introduction-- 
    
    Returning to life time and again since the ancient middle ages, the evil lord 
    Dracula has driven people to terror. Each time Dracula returned from the dead, 
    the Belmont clan fought him in the shadows, wielding the holy whip. 
    
    Through their efforts, humanity avoided darkness, securing prosperity. 
    
    But, early in the 19th centruy, having lost their ability to resist the 
    darkness, those in positions of power at the time began to search for new ways 
    to counter Dracula. 
    
    Our organizaiton, Ecclesia, was born then as one of those countermeasures.
    
    Many organizations were established with the same goal, and say after day, 
    they conducted their studies diligently, but each was dissolved when they 
    failed to produce satisfactory results. 
    
    But that was when Barlowe, the leader of Ecclesia, finally made a surprising 
    breakthrough that could stand up against Dracula.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Ecclesia*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa enters main room and turns.)
    
    Shanoa: Who's there?
    
    Albus: ...Figures. Serves me right for trying to scare you.
    
    (Albus appears out of thin air.)
    
    Shanoa: Albus!
    
    Albus: Apparently I didn't hide my presence very well at all. Good to see you, 
    Shanoa.
    
    Shanoa: What are you doing here?
    
    Albus: Well, this is our home, after all. Where else would I be?
    
    Shanoa: No, it's not that. Aren't you on a mission?
    
    Albus: Yes, but I wanted to make sure things were okay here. Any news worth 
    sharing?
    
    Shanoa: Well... Barlowe chose me as the bearer, actually. We're about to start 
    the ritual, so my body can be a vessel for [Dominus].
    
    Albus: What did you say!? [Dominus]... you?
    
    Shanoa: That's right.
    
    Albus: This is an outrage! Barlowe lied to me!
    
    Shanoa: Lied?
    
    Albus: I'm supposed to be the bearer. He promised me that much!
    
    Shanoa: But, the master said you--
    
    Albus: What? What did he tell you?
    
    Shanoa: ...that you're unfit... to be the bearer.
    
    Albus: ...!? He would never say such a thing!
    
    Shanoa: But Albus--
    
    (A bell's ringing can be heard.)
    
    Shanoa: I'm sorry; it's time. I have to go.
    
    (Shanoa leaps onto the nearby ledge.)
    
    Albus: Wait, Shanoa! You don't understand!
    
    Shanoa: You're wrong. I'm as much a member of Ecclesia as you are. Our sole 
    purpose is to destroy [Dracula], so people can look to dawn withou fearing the 
    darkness. Am I wrong, Albus?
    
    Albus: That isn't--
    
    Shanoa: For that reason, I will become Dominus, the blade to banish all evil.
    
    Albus: Shanoa...!
    
    (Control is given, and talking to Albus results in:)
    
    Albus: ......
    
    (Shanoa enters the only door she can, causing the screen to scroll to Albus. 
    He clutches his head.)
    
    Albus: How could he!?
    
    (Lightning flashes.)
    
    Albus: Orders may be orders, Barlowe... But I'm holding you to your promise.
    
    (The scene changes to the room with Shanoa and Barlowe.)
    
    Barlowe: Shanoa, as you know, only you can become the bearer of [Dominus].
    
    Shanoa: Yes, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: Even so, it will be nearly impossible for you to control with its 
    power. The purpose of this ritual is to make sure your body will adjust to 
    [Dominus].
    
    Shanoa: Yes, Sir. But when it's over, I--
    
    Barlowe: That's right, Shanoa. You will be able to wield our most powerful 
    Glyph... [Dominus], which Ecclesia created as the ultimate weapon against 
    Dracula.
    
    (Shanoa runs to a glowing pillar at the back)
    
    Barlowe: I'm proud of you, Shanoa. You will become our world's new savior.
    
    (Barlowe raises his arms, causing three books to begin floating. The three 
    Dominus glyphs appear, and Shanoa begins to absorb them, until an interruption 
    occurs. The screen goes dark.)
    
    Barlowe: What's going on!?
    
    Shanoa: Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!
    
    (The darkness fades to show Albus. The three books float around him.)
    
    Shanoa: You... Who...are...?
    
    Albus: ......
    
    (Shanoa collapses.)
    
    Barlowe: What is the meaning of this!? Albus! You know how crucial the ritual 
    is!
    
    Albus: You lied to me.
    
    Barlowe: Albus--
    
    Albus: I was to be the bearer. You promised me!
    
    Barlowe: We each have a role! If you had followed orders, you might understand 
    that. Above all else, Shanoa is the only one with the capacity for Dominus. 
    You know that as well as I do.
    
    Albus: I intended to overcome my weakness. What happened to working together?
    
    Barlowe: Perhaps we still can. Together, we will overcome this setback as 
    well...
    
    Albus: It's too late.
    
    (Albus makes the three books vanish.)
    
    Barlowe: Tell me, Albus. What do you intend to do with [Dominus]?
    
    Albus: ...You said it yourself: each of us has a role. And, like a fine 
    master, you've finally shown me what mine must be.
    
    Barlowe: Don't be stupid, Albus! What are you planning?
    
    Albus: I will be taking [Dominus].
    
    Barlowe: Be rational! Without that Glyph, our mission is a failure! Dracula's 
    vessel--
    
    Albus: I have my own mission.
    
    (Albus points his gun at Barlowe.)
    
    Barlowe: Tch!
    
    (Barlowe backsteps and sends electricity towards Albus. Albus shoots a globe 
    of energy, and the two forces collide before fading.)
    
    Albus: You are my master no longer... Farewell, Barlowe.
    
    (Albus retreats, causing the screen to fade to black.)
    
    Several weeks pass...
    
    (Shanoa and Barlowe stand in a different room, with a rapier Glyph floating 
    nearby.)
    
    Barlowe: Your training regimen shall soon conclude.
    
    Shanoa: As you say, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: We tap the power in all things, great and small, to forge Glyphs 
    through Ecclesia's secret art. And so we gain the strength to save mankind. 
    Absorb the Glyph before you, if you would.
    
    Tutorial: You can absorb the Glyph on the screen by press [ ^ ]. Absorbing it 
    grants the Glyph and 10 hearts.
    
    (Control is given. Talking to Barlowe results in:)
    
    Barlowe: What are you doing? Take in that Glyph.
    
    (Shanoa absorbs the Glyph.)
    
    Shanoa: A Rapier Glyph?
    
    Barlowe: Just so. And now you see: absorb a Glyph, and you shall know its 
    kind. That is your gift; it's yours and yours alone.
    
    Shanoa: As you say, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: ...... That I must teach you from the start again... A pity that this 
    had to happen now. But still, our time is waning. Moving on...
    
    Shanoa: As you say, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: That Glyph--direct its power toward your arms.
    
    Tutorial: Open the menu with [START], and select [Glyph] to set Glyphs to 
    [ Y ] and [ X ].
    
    (Control is given. Shanoa equips the Rapier Glyph to both her arms.)
    
    Barlowe: So armed, you can wield Glyphs against your foes. Imagine I am one of 
    them, and strike!
    
    Tutorial: Press [ Y ] or [ X ] to attack with your assigned Glyphs. Glyph 
    attacks consume MP, which recovers with time.
    
    (Control is given. Talking to Barlowe results in:)
    
    Barlowe: No need to hesitate. Attack me with that Glyph.
    
    (Shanoa attacks Barlowe three times, and he teleports out of harm's way each 
    time.)
    
    Tutorial: Alternate [ Y ] and [ X ] for combos.
    
    (Shanoa does a combo to the air with her rapiers.)
    
    Barlowe: Your memories may have fled, but you must not. Hear me--your 
    warrior's instincts must endure. Now meld the Glyphs in both your arms. 
    Prepare; Glyph Unions may yet catch foes by surprise.
    
    Tutorial: Press [ ^ + Y ( X )] to perform Glyph Union.
    
    (Control is given. Talking to Barlowe results in:)
    
    Barlowe: The Glyph Union, Shanoa. Search your mind.
    
    (Shanoa performs the Glyph Union.)
    
    Barlowe: So skillful! Now, you face the final test: the danger of true combat. 
    Steel yourself. Then, once prepared, step into the next room.
    
    Shanoa: As you say, Sir.
    
    (Control is given. Talking to Barlowe results in:)
    
    Barlowe: We do not have time. When you are ready, go to the next room.
    
    (Shanoa enters the next room. Barlowe speaks from where he remains.)
    
    Barlowe: From netherworlds, I call your enemy! Use everything you've learned 
    to stand your ground. And be our greatest warrior once again!
    
    (Shanoa defeats the four skeletons summoned.)
    
    Barlowe: So ends your basic training. Now advance!
    
    (Shanoa enters the next room, where Barlowe waits.)
    
    Barlowe: Shanoa, I expected nothing less.
    
    Shanoa: Thank you, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: And now, your mission must begin at once. Recover the supreme Glyph, 
    Dominus. My pupil has it--Albus is his name.
    
    Shanoa: Albus...
    
    Barlowe: Does that name stir your memory, by chance?
    
    Shanoa: No, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: Your feelings, then? You knew of him, before.
    
    Shanoa: I know nothing of him now, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: Know this: it's he who robbed your memories blind. He cost you that, 
    and cost mankind its wish. Its only hope, and you must take it back.
    
    Shanoa: The ritual... That man I saw...
    
    Barlowe: That man was Albus.
    
    Shanoa: ...This is all his doing. But why?
    
    Barlowe: He coveted your power, and your fate. But Dominus was yours alone to 
    bear. Had I explained, perhaps you'd still be whole.
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Barlowe: ...But no time now for wishes or regrets. With Dominus, we two can 
    save the world--from nothing less than Dracula himself! Retrieve it, and we 
    burn him back to dust. There's nothing else that's ever mattered more.
    
    Shanoa: It shall be done, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: You truly are a blessing on us all. And we have one advantage: 
    [Dominus] cannot be used by ordinary men. Not even Albus; it requires you. No 
    flesh but yours can ever host a Glyph. You see now why I chose you for this 
    task.
    
    Shanoa: I do, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: But Albus has a keen and cunning mind. With time, he may yet find 
    another way. So find him first--before his trail grows cold!
    
    Shanoa: I shall, Sir.
    
    (Shanoa runs by him, but stops when he speaks.)
    
    Barlowe: Shanoa, bring him back unharmed, unless... Unless he proves too 
    stubborn. Understood?
    
    Shanoa: Yes.
    
    Barlowe: Our hopes go with you... All the world's, and mine.
    
    (Control is given. Talking to Barlowe results in:)
    
    Barlowe: I'm counting on you...
    
    (Going to Barlowe's room lets Shanoa talk to him for different messages.)
    
    Barlowe: Crouch down to check for treasures in the earth.
    
    Barlowe: Don't panic if an enemy flings you. Just jump or back-dash to regain 
    control.
    
    Barlowe: You've always been a gifted warrior... Your latent talent has not 
    lost its spark. I've faith in you; you will fulfill your role.
    
    Barlowe: In Castlevania's shadow, evil thrives. Its memory alone attracts foul 
    fiends. To win, one must exploit their weaknesses. The skeleton, for one. He 
    shrugs off ice, but fire devastates. And, of course, a simple, violent blow 
    works wonders too.
    
    Barlowe: Poor Albus was a brother to you once. He genuinely cared.
    
    Barlowe: With Glyphs in both arms, alternate to launch a series of attacks. 
    But know this too: The timing varies. Practice, and you'll see.
    
    (Shanoa leaves Ecclesia.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Monastery*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa works through the mansion until reaching a Glyph, which she absorbs.)
    
    Tutorial: Press R to adhere to nearby magnets with the [Magnes] Glyph.
    
    (Shanoa uses Magnes to pull herself towards a magnet.)
    
    Tutorial: You can pull your character with the +Control Pad.
    
    (Shanoa demonstrates with the usual four directions.)
    
    Tutorial: Release R to send Shanoa flying in the opposite direction.
    
    (This is shown.)
    
    Tutorial: With this Glyph, you'll be able to get to normally inaccessible 
    locations. It can also be used to dodge attacks in combat.
    
    (Shanoa makes her way through the rest of the Monastery. After defeating a 
    boss, she finds Albus.)
    
    Albus: Shanoa! Still slaving away for the old man, are we?
    
    Shanoa: You... I've seen you before. Your name is Albus, is it not?
    
    Albus: Well, yes...
    
    Shanoa: By order of my master, I'm to retrieve the [Dominus] Glyph and return 
    you home.
    
    Albus: Home, you say? I have none. The old man saw to that.
    
    (Shanoa gets into a battle stance.)
    
    Shanoa: It was not a request.
    
    (She runs forward and attacks, but Albus teleports to the doorway to avoid it.)
    
    Albus: Intriguing... I recall you being a great deal more graceful than that. 
    And you've forgotten your skill with Glyphs as well.
    
    Shanoa: I have forgotten, thanks to you.
    
    Albus: Is that so? Well, I'm never going back. Remember to tell the old man 
    for me.
    
    Shanoa: You must. By order of Master Barlowe--
    
    Albus: Never say that name again!
    
    (Albus points his gun at her.)
    
    Shanoa: Concentrate, Shanoa...
    
    (Shanoa ducks, avoiding his attack.)
    
    Albus: Well, I'd best be off... Take care, Shanoa.
    
    (Albus retreats. Shanoa sees a glitter from the floor, and finds it to be a 
    map with an X on it.)
    
    Shanoa: Hmm... He marked a village on this map.
    
    (Barlowe will have nothing new to say, so Shanoa heads to the village.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Wygol Village*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa sees an old man frozen, with a Glyph above him.)
    
    Shanoa: A Glyph... This is Albus's doing.
    
    (Control is granted. Shanoa absorbs the Glyph.)
    
    Nikolai: At last!
    
    Shanoa: Who did this to you?
    
    Nikolai: You must help the others! Everyone in the village has been taken!
    
    Shanoa: By whom?
    
    Nikolai: That man! He spirited away the other 12, and then imprisoned me. 
    ...But the Lord must have sent you to our aid. Please deliver the others!
    
    Shanoa: Can you tell me where the man went?
    
    Nikolai: If... If I'm not mistaken, he said something about the 
    [Prison Island].
    
    Shanoa: I see...
    
    Nikolai: Long ago, criminals were banished to that forsaken place... Some say 
    their souls still wander the island, which is forever cursed.
    
    Shanoa: Where is it?
    
    Nikolai: You can get there through these very woods. Please, you must save 
    them!
    
    Shanoa: Did Albus really take the villagers to [Prison Island]? ...and for 
    what purpose?
    
    (Shanoa goes to Kalidus Channel to make her way to Prison Island.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Kalidus Channel*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa finds a villager in one of the dry rooms and frees him.)
    
    Jacob: Whew! Hey, you saved me. Thanks! I'm Jacob. Got a general store in 
    Wygol Village. And on that note, I should probably get back to it! But listen, 
    I might have some things you can use. Come by the shop, and we'll do business!
    
    (Jacob vanishes. Shanoa continues to Minera Prison Island.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Minera Prison Island*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (After getting through roughly half of the level, Shanoa finds Albus.)
    
    Shanoa: Albus!
    
    Albus: Impressive, Shanoa. It's fortunate I already prepared you a reward...
    
    (Albus holds out his hand, causing a Glyph to appear.)
    
    Albus: It's the best I can do, for the time being. This [Dominus] is what you 
    came for, is it not? Go ahead and take it.
    
    (Control is granted. Talking to Albus results in:)
    
    Albus: That's what you came for, isn't it? No time to waste.
    
    (Shanoa absorbs the Glyph, Dominus Hatred.)
    
    Shanoa: It really is [Dominus]. What are you thinking?
    
    Albus: Figured... With that much power, it's impossible to conceal its source.
    
    Shanoa: The source of [Dominus]? What does that mean?
    
    Albus: What it means, dear, is that I was right.
    
    Shanoa: This is your last chance; come back to Ecclesia.
    
    Albus: We've been over this... My place is no longer as the old man's errand 
    boy. I have a role to fulfill, and fulfill it I shall.
    
    (Albus teleports away.)
    
    Shanoa: How was he able to create a Glyph without casting it? I thought only I 
    could-- Master Barlowe should hear of this.
    
    (If Shanoa heads back to Barlowe, a conversation will take place.)
    
    Barlowe: He spintered [Dominus] and formed a Glyph...
    
    Shanoa: Yes, but he gave it to me instead of using it.
    
    Barlowe: I see. I underestimated him. To come so far, so quickly... How could 
    he? But giving it to you... Deliberately?
    
    Shanoa: Yes, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: What plan could that be part of?
    
    Shanoa: He said... he had a role to fulfill.
    
    Barlowe: ...If nothing else, a piece of [Dominus] now rests with us, instead 
    of in his hands. Our task remains just as it was before. One piece is found; 
    the rest must be retrieved.
    
    Shanoa: Leave it to me. ...There may still be clues at the [Prison Island].
    
    (Talking to Barlowe again results in him saying:)
    
    Barlowe: I'm counting on you...
    
    (Continuing through Prison Island, Shanoa finds another villager and frees 
    him.)
    
    Abram: Ha-ha! Rescued at last--but only to be butchered by this she-devil!
    
    Shanoa: I have no interest in butchering you, Sir.
    
    Abram: You promise? Well, um, thank you! I guess. That's what you say when 
    people save your life, right? I'm Abram. I'm the town's official healer. 
    Please come visit my establishment... IF YOU DARE!
    
    (Abram vanishes, letting her continue.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Lighthouse*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (After defeating the boss, Shanoa finds another villager to save.)
    
    Eugen: ...Thank you.
    
    Shanoa: Did the man who bound you say anything?
    
    Eugen: I don't remember hearing his voice, but I saw his eyes. He's got a 
    purpose. I can tell you that. Good or bad purpose? That I couldn't say.
    
    Shanoa: I see.
    
    Eugen: I'm going back to the village. I'm worried about Father Nikolai. And 
    you...
    
    Shanoa: What about me?
    
    Eugen: How the hell'd you get all this way in that flimsy gear? Come see me in 
    the village. I'll suit you up proper.
    
    Shanoa: I'd appreciate it.
    
    (Eugen vanishes, leaving Shanoa to continue. In the next room, Shanoa pauses.)
    
    Shanoa: He must have passed this way... It's the only path.
    
    (She exits for Kalidus Channel once more.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Kalidus Channel*

    (While exploring the watery depths, Shanoa finds a villager.)
    
    Monica: Oh! Wh-What did I do to deserve to be saved by such a beautiful angel? 
    I'm... I'm Monica. I'm... a seamstress in the village. Um... Please, let me 
    repay you! If you're in the village, come see me!
    
    (The rest of her trip is uneventful.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Tymeo Mountains*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa finds another villager.)
    
    Laura: Uh... Mmm. Where am I...?
    
    Shanoa: You're awake.
    
    Laura: Last thing I remember was a man walking in... Was that a dream?
    
    Shanoa: No, that was...
    
    Laura: Eh, I don't want to know. Whatever's past is past, right? Time to go 
    home. I've got work to do.
    
    Shanoa: What sort of work?
    
    Laura: I craft jewelry. Name's Laura.
    
    (Laura vanishes, allowing Shanoa to make her way out and through Misty Forest 
    Road.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Skeleton Cave*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (After overcoming the boss, Shanoa finds Albus in front of an imprisoned 
    villager.)
    
    Shanoa: Let that man go, Albus.
    
    Albus: As you wish, my dear. I was just finishing up, so he's all yours.
    
    Shanoa: Why involve the villagers? This doesn't concern them.
    
    Albus: Doesn't it? Worry not, dear Shanoa, everything will make sense when my 
    plan is complete.
    
    (Albus vanishes. With control restored, Shanoa frees the villager.)
    
    George: So kind of you to save me.
    
    Shanoa: Did he do anything strange? Where are the others?
    
    George: He drew some of my blood and chanted a few words... As for the others, 
    I heard him say he was going to the village. I'm worried.
    
    Shanoa: The village again...? What is Albus trying to do?
    
    (George vanishes. Shanoa heads out of the area to return to the village.)
     
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Wygol Village*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Nikolai approaches Shanoa.)
    
    Nikolai: You must help us! ...That man has returned.
    
    Shanoa: You need to tell me what he's done.
    
    Nikolai: Just thinking of it chills my soul--he used a device to take some of 
    our blood. ...Could he be the monster whispered of in legend? ...[Dracula]?
    
    Shanoa: I don't understand. Why would he need blood?
    
    Nikolai: There is an old mansion beyond the cove. He may have taken residence 
    there. O Lord, what horrors might this demon be planning for us...?
    
    (Talking to Nikolai afterwards results in:)
    
    Nikolai: Some of us have not yet returned... Unless Heaven has already called 
    them... No. I must believe in God's protection. And in yours...
    
    Nikolai: It seems legends of Dracula existed here long before I laid a single 
    brick. Still, I never imagined those legends would come to life.
    
    Nikolai: I have heard that my ancestors were people who fought evil. Perhaps 
    that is why I have also chosen to live my life as a clergyman.
    
    Nikolai: God brought us all here, and bid us to build these homes in this 
    place. He's provided for us ever since, even in our darkest hours.
    
    (Though she has directions on where to go, Shanoa can find another villager 
    at the Prison Island first.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Minera Prison Island*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (With the Ordinary Rock, Shanoa is able to jump up the central tower and save 
    another captive.)
    
    Aeon: S-Saved! Guess the eternal bliss of paradise will have to wait, hmm? I'm 
    Aeon, the chef. I've worked in all kinds of restaurants. One time it was for 
    three whole weeks! Come see me in the village, and I'll make you a snack!
    
    (Aeon vanishes. Another villager can be found now in the Tymeo Mountains as 
    well.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Tymeo Mountains*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Using the Ordinary Rock to get to him, Shanoa frees a villager.)
    
    Marcel: Ha! I came out here on a hunch, and I was right!
    
    Shanoa: Hmm?
    
    Marcel: Witches and wizards, strange magic, hordes of monsters... Marcel, my 
    good man, welcome to the Front Page!
    
    Shanoa: ......Hmm?
    
    Marcel: Ah, right, where are my manners? Marcel. I'm a journalist. Thought 
    there might be a scoop around here, and boy, this place is full of them!
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Marcel: You, for example! A beautiful witch--and please don't take offense; 
    you are gorgeous, I have to say. "Beautiful Witch Entrances Remote Village!" 
    There we go. A perfect headline. Well, I'd better get cracking. I'll be in 
    touch!
    
    (Marcel vanishes. With no other locations to backtrack to, Shanoa continues to 
    Somnus Reef.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Somnus Reef*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (While swimming through, Shanoa finds a hidden room that holds a villager.)
    
    Anna: Thank you very much, Miss.
    
    Shanoa: You're welcome.
    
    Anna: Well, Tom? I was very polite, wasn't I?
    
    Tom: Meow.
    
    Shanoa: You can talk to the cat?
    
    Anna: That's right! Only I can do it, too. My brother can't even do it. Okay, 
    I'm worried about my family, so I'm going now. See you later, Miss.
    
    (Anna vanishes. Continuing, Shanoa finds another villager trapped.)
    
    Serge: Oh, phew! Thanks, lady! My name's Serge.
    
    Shanoa: Should I walk you home?
    
    Serge: Nah, I'm not a little kid anymore. I can get home by myself.
    
    (Serge vanishes. Shanoa leaves the area.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Giant's Dwelling*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (A villager is found shortly into the building.)
    
    Daniela: Oh, are we done already? Well, that's rather disappointing, isn't it?
    
    Shanoa: Disappointing?
    
    Daniela: You're not that rascal from before. Your voice is different. You're 
    like a doll--pretty, but there's something missing... Say, is the man not 
    coming? I promised him a cake... Oh well. Tell him I'll be waiting. Oh, yes, 
    I'm Daniela. Nice name, isn't it? Aunt Michelle gave it to me. Well, home I 
    go. Don't worry. Old Dracula himself wouldn't bother with blood this stale...
    
    (Upon arriving at the end, Shanoa finds Albus.)
    
    Albus: You seem to be feeling better. Impressive work; finding me and all.
    
    Shanoa: A blind man could have found you. You left a trail...
    
    Albus: Just like when we were children playing tag. Once you started to cry, 
    I'd feel terrible and let you win.
    
    Shanoa: What are you getting at?
    
    Albus: Why not try it now, and perhaps I'll let you catch me.
    
    Shanoa: ...Try crying? You know I can't. I don't remember any of that.
    
    Albus: Apologies Shanoa, but no tears, no deal... Still, it'd be a shame to 
    leave you empty-handed.
    
    (Albus brings out a Dominus Glyph.)
    
    Shanoa: Again... What are you doing?
    
    Albus: Oh, just accept it. It's a gift. Besides, it's what you came here for.
    
    (Control is granted. Talking to Albus results in:)
    
    Albus: You know you haven't got a choice, Shanoa. Let's not play games.
    
    (Shanoa absorbs Dominus Anger.)
    
    Albus: Shanoa... Do you know what the [Dominus] is?
    
    Shanoa: The ultimate Glyph, of course. The one that can destroy [Dracula].
    
    Albus: Half-right. But think about it: where does a Glyph's power come from? 
    Nothing comes from nothing, after all. What do you suppose Barlowe used to 
    create his precious [Dominus]?
    
    Shanoa: Hmph... What?
    
    Albus: They used [Dracula], Shanoa. [Dominus] is made from his remains. That's 
    HIS power. Nothing less.
    
    Shanoa: [Dominus] is...? It can't be true.
    
    Albus: Ask the old man if you think I'm lying. And be quick about it; I'm very 
    nearly done with all this.
    
    (Albus teleports out.)
    
    Shanoa: Master Barlowe... Is Albus telling the truth? I have to find out.
    
    (If Shanoa heads to Ecclesia after this, a conversation with Barlowe occurs.)
    
    Barlowe: So now you've heard the truth of [Dominus]...
    
    Shanoa: Then it's true...
    
    Barlowe: You've earned the right to know. Here's all the rest: In ages past, 
    there was a hunter's clan. Their holy whip held Dracula at bay--until, as time 
    marched on, they disappeared. The whip lost, men created other tools... such 
    as the Glyphs Ecclesia controls. Through constant hidden struggle round the 
    world, we proved Ecclesia's mettle to mankind. And so, in secret, certain men 
    of power then placed a certain object in our care.
    
    Shanoa: ...That being?
    
    Barlowe: The vessel for the soul of [Dracula]. Securely sealed in this very 
    room. If we destroy it, mankind's wish comes true. That is our purpose, as 
    ordained by God. But there remains one technicality...
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Barlowe: Against that vessel, our Glyphs came to naught. Our powers failed to 
    scratch it, even once. If those in power knew, they would take it back. 
    Ecclesia would vanish overnight! So I sought out a Glyph of greater power--one 
    strong enough to topple Dracula. And so, the answer came: Fight fire with 
    fire...
    
    Shanoa: You can't mean...
    
    Barlowe: Indeed. The power of [Dracula] himself. Converting it was difficult, 
    of course. But finally, we made his power ours!
    
    Shanoa: The power of ultimate destruction-- [Dominus]...
    
    Barlowe: Yes, ultimate destruction. But no less could ever rid the world of 
    [Dracula]. If only we'd been wise enough to see who else among us might make 
    use of it. I fear we have unleashed a deadly threat.
    
    Shanoa: Albus still has the final piece...
    
    Barlowe: He must believe it's for some "greater good..." But I'll take the 
    Lord's plan over his. And if you're forced to choose, you know what's right.
    
    Shanoa: I do, Sir.
    
    (Talking to Barlowe afterwards results in:)
    
    Barlowe: I'm counting on you...
    
    (Shanoa continues on her way.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Tristis Pass*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Behind the waterfall, Shanoa finds the last villager.)
    
    Irina: You saved me! Oh, thank you! Thank you! ...Listen, I know you just 
    rescued me, but please excuse me. I'm worried about my children. I'm Irina, 
    by the way. And...well, I have to go. You be careful out here. ...Bye!
    
    (Irina vanishes. Shanoa makes her way out of the pass to continue.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Oblivion Ridge*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Shanoa approaches the end of the level.)
    
    Shanoa: I sense strong magic behind that door... it's Dominus.
    
    (Shanoa enters the building and runs towards the last Dominus Glyph, but is 
    encased by a Glyph that Albus uses.)
    
    Albus: Try to relax, Shanoa; no more interfering. About those [Dominus] 
    pieces, by the way... It's time to explain why I gave them to you.
    
    (Albus absorbs the Dominus piece.)
    
    Albus: Gyaaaaah! It's working... I FEEL IT!
    
    Shanoa: But Barlowe said you weren't able to bear Glyphs... Did you... You let 
    me absorb the other two just to see how it's done!
    
    Albus: Ha! You see, I--Urgh... Hng! Gaaaaaaaaahhh!
    
    (Albus clutches his head, and then lets it slump forward, along with his arms.)
    
    Shanoa: ...What's happening?
    
    Albus: ...And now... My wish will be... Shanoa, I--
    
    (Albus looks up.)
    
    Albus: Rrgh... What!? Th-This can't be!
    
    (He clutches his head and begins to shake.)
    
    Albus: No... I've come too far... I will NOT be consumed! ...We'll settle this 
    later, Shanoa.
    
    (Albus teleports away.)
    
    Shanoa: Wait, Albus! This is bad... Master Barlowe will know what to do.
    
    (When Shanoa goes to Ecclesia, a conversation with Barlowe occurs.)
    
    Barlowe: You say he hosts the final piece himself!? To learn such devilry in 
    such short time... I fear his genius may outstrip my own. We foolishly assumed 
    that only you could serve as host for [Dominus]...and so we left him such an 
    opening. He watched the way you took in those first two... But wait, those 
    pieces still remain with us.
    
    Shanoa: That is correct.
    
    Barlowe: He wants them back, no doubt. If we pursue...
    
    Shanoa: What choice do we have? He has to be stopped; you said so yourself.
    
    Barlowe: Indeed, you have the right of it, I fear. The force of [Dominus] 
    devours the mind. Poor Albus, even he could not resist Dracula's will. He 
    can't come back to us; not anymore. Shanoa, free him from his misery...
    
    Shanoa: Yes, Sir.
    
    Barlowe: His trail must lead beyond the graveyard. Go. For all the world's 
    sake, come back alive.
    
    (Talking to Barlowe afterwards results in:)
    
    Barlowe: If Albus mastered [Dominus], who else might do the same? O Lord, what 
    has my pupil done?
    
    (Shanoa goes through Argila Swamp to reach the Mystery Manor.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Mystery Manor*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (IMPORTANT NOTE: This is where it is decided if the good or bad ending is 
    received. If Shanoa saves all the villagers, the good ending will occur, as 
    shown here. The bad ending will be detailed later.)
    
    (Shanoa stops in front of the entrance.)
    
    Shanoa: Albus is here... I must end this now with my own hands, no matter the 
    cost.
    
    (Passing through the mansion, Shanoa finds Albus behind a boss door. His head 
    and arms are slumped down.
    
    Shanoa: If this is how it must be, then let's end it now.
    
    (Albus looks at her.)
    
    Albus: The Dominus is mine, and I've waited long enough. Hand it over, Shanoa.
    
    Shanoa: Is this why you betrayed our master? Did you trade your home, your 
    life, just to be consumed by this darkness? What did you hope to gain!? Answer 
    me.
    
    (Albus clutches his head, and then straightens.)
    
    Albus: Shanoa... What am I--!? Gaaah! No, Shanoa... RUN! You have to get away 
    from here! Now!
    
    Shanoa: ...Albus?
    
    (Albus clutches his head again, and then begins laughing.)
    
    Albus: Run...? Ha! What good would that do her? She cannot escape me. All of 
    humanity is merely cattle, led to slaughter at my behest. I, Lord Dracula! 
    Give yourself as sustenance to me, weak, foolish human! That will be your 
    honor!!
    
    Shanoa: ...... Even in this state, without any memory of the man you once 
    were, I pity you. It's my duty to free you from this suffering; to ensure you 
    don't meet such an end. Rest in peace, Albus.
    
    (Shanoa manages to defeat Albus in a fight. He collapses, and the last piece 
    of Dominus appears above him.)
    
    Shanoa: This will complete [Dominus], the power that corrupted Albus...and 
    consumed him. Can this cursed power truly be used to vanquish evil? ...I'll 
    return the final piece to Barlowe--my mission is complete.
    
    (Control is granted, but Albus cannot be spoken to or examined. Shanoa absorbs 
    Dominus Agony. The screen flashes white.)
    
    Shanoa: What's...going on!? Albus's memories--! ...I can feel them...
    
    (The screen becomes pitch black. Nothing can be seen besides text.)
    
    Albus: Name's Albus. I guess we're brother and sister now.
    
    Shanoa: My brother, huh? ...Albus.
    
    (A flash occurs.)
    
    Albus: Argh!
    
    Shanoa: You can't keep doing this; you'll destroy yourself! Let me take your 
    place.
    
    Albus: What... kind of brother would I be...if I didn't protect you...? 
    That's...my role.
    
    (Another flash occurs.)
    
    Albus: Accepting Dominus is likely to interfere with one's memory and 
    emotions.
    
    Barlowe: I see...
    
    Albus: That being the case, we should assume the true price is much higher... 
    Sir! Name me as the bearer. I can't allow Shanoa to risk her life.
    
    Barlowe: But you aren't able--
    
    Albus: There has to be a way! ...and I'll find it.
    
    Barlowe: All right, Albus. I will give you my word. But, before all that, I 
    have a great errand for you...
    
    (The scene returns to the present, where Shanoa is.)
    
    Shanoa: ...But Barlowe told me Albus took my memories. It was [Dominus]? 
    Albus, did you steal [Dominus] for my sake...?
    
    ???: So you figured it out. ...a shame everything ended in failure.
    
    Shanoa: Albus!? I... I can hear your voice inside my mind.
    
    (A ghostly portrait of Albus appears when he speaks.)
    
    Albus: Inside [Dominus], actually, which you absorbed.
    
    Shanoa: That isn't possible.
    
    Albus: It would seem the blood of the holy whip's legacy makes many things 
    possible. One of life's fortunate miracles, you might say. Betrayed by the old 
    man, I fled with [Dominus]. In this way I had taken your place as bearer, and 
    you were no longer at risk. Alone, I continued my research into methods of 
    controlling [Dominus]. As you know, that Glyph's power is Dracula's as well. 
    To this end, I required the blood of the sacred Belmont clan. Since they 
    vanished years ago, I set out to find any traces of their heritage.
    
    Shanoa: ...The villagers.
    
    Albus: Exactly. Fate drew them to the village...all thirteen of that line. I 
    studied their blood with great diligence... In the end, even that power wasn't 
    enough to contain [Dominus], and the Glyph consumed me.
    
    Shanoa: ...But with your body gone, your spirit remains--absorbed into the 
    Glyph. And now, that soul dwells within me, alongside the power of [Dominus].
    
    Albus: By all accounts, [Dominus] should have overpowered and erased my will. 
    However, the villager's power courses through you, and that tethered me here.
    
    Shanoa: How can that be?
    
    Albus: Probably from absorbing the Glyphs I used to imprison them... You are 
    quite remarkable, Shanoa.
    
    Shanoa: ...... There is still one thing I do not understand, Albus. Why did 
    you try to take my place, if you knew it would cost you your life?
    
    Albus: ...I doubt you could understand, without your memories or emotions. 
    Let's just say I knew what mattered to me, and what had to be done. Once the 
    ritual began, though, I no longer had any choice. Everything that happened 
    since then was laid out before me... a path I had to follow.
    
    Shanoa: I still don't understand...
    
    Albus: It's just as well. No need to concern yourself with the affairs of my 
    heart. But, I do need you to promise me one thing.
    
    Shanoa: What is it?
    
    Albus: No matter what happens, you mustn't use [Dominus]. Its power comes at 
    a great price... Your life. Please, Shanoa... Don't ever use [Dominus]! You 
    have to trust me!
    
    Shanoa: I do, Albus.
    
    Albus: Then I've done all I can. Thank you, Shanoa... ...but now, I believe my 
    time is at an end.
    
    Shanoa: Albus, wait! I have to know--
    
    Albus: You'll be fine now. ...Remember your promise.
    
    Shanoa: ...Albus...? Don't go, Albus! ...You gave up your life for my sake, 
    and I don't feel anything. I can't even shed a tear... ...... Why was 
    everything stolen from me!?
    
    (Shanoa runs towards the door.)
    
    Shanoa: Only one person can answer my questions. ...I won't let Albus's 
    sacrifice go to waste. I must learn the truth.
    
    (Heading back through the manor, Shanoa goes to Ecclesia.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Ecclesia*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Upon entering Barlowe's room, Shanoa automatically runs over to him.)
    
    Shanoa: It's done, Sir. I've retrieved [Dominus].
    
    Barlowe: And Albus? Did he yield, or did he...
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Barlowe: Unfortunate... but it cannot be helped. He wanted just the same as 
    both of us. Perhaps he simply wanted it too much. But still, there is a way to 
    honor him. Use [Dominus], and see the mission through. Good Albus would have 
    wanted it that way. The time has come--to the forbidden room!
    
    (The screen becomes dark, and then shows Shanoa standing in front of the 
    vessel-the pillar from the beginning of the game-with Barlowe behind her.)
    
    Barlowe: Take all three pieces; bind them to yourself. Upon the vessel, cast 
    the Union Glyph. And so, the world's greatest hope will rise! Ecclesia's 
    wish... The wish of all mankind. Now go, Shanoa! You will be the one. Our 
    world's savior...
    
    (Shanoa turns to him.)
    
    Shanoa: I will not.
    
    Barlowe: ...What, second thoughts? You've fought so hard for this...
    
    Shanoa: I promised Albus. I'm never using Dominus.
    
    Barlowe: You promised him? He must have lied to you...
    
    Shanoa: You would know quite a bit about lies.
    
    Barlowe: Shanoa, what is this? What do you mean?
    
    Shanoa: Albus didn't seal my emotions at all. It was you. You used them as a 
    sacrifice to [Dominus]!
    
    Barlowe: R-Ridiculous! I've never heard such--
    
    Shanoa: You also lied to Albus. You sent him on a fool's errand, and tried to 
    hold the ritual in his absence.
    
    Barlowe: ......
    
    Shanoa: And you neglected to mention that using [Dominus] would kill me. Would 
    you care to explain that, "Master"?
    
    Barlowe: Shanoa, if you ever trusted me, then hear me: mankind needss you. 
    Needs your life!
    
    (Barlowe spreads his arms in an attack position, while Shanoa rolls back.)
    
    Shanoa: ......!
    
    Barlowe: You carry such a burden, my young girl... To give your life that Man 
    might live his dreams... Do you not see how wonderful that is?
    
    Shanoa: You're mad...
    
    Barlowe: Now, Albus, that boy had the right idea. He found a way to take in 
    [Dominus]... and I shall put his research to good use. You see, girl, we don't 
    need you anymore... My flesh can host the Glyph as well as yours! And since 
    you're so unwilling to comply... I'll rip the Glyph straight off your bloody 
    corpse!
    
    (Barlowe begins to charge a spell.)
    
    Shanoa: I'm not ready to die, Barlowe. You still owe me answers.
    
    Barlowe: Poor fool; if I could only make you see. Now die, and YIELD [DOMINUS] 
    TO ME!!
    
    (Shanoa manages to defeat Barlowe in a fight. He falls to his knees.)
    
    Barlowe: Dammit! I was so close! I could... taste the power...
    
    Shanoa: I don't understand... The user of [Dominus] is destined to die! ...Why 
    would you want that kind of power?
    
    Barlowe: Because without [Dominus], I'll never destroy that infernal seal.
    
    Shanoa: ...Seal? You told me that was the vessel of Dracula's soul!
    
    Barlowe: Of course! Ecclesia's mission is to realize the singular wish of all 
    mankind: the resurrection of our lord, Count Dracula!
    
    Shanoa: Mankind wishes for no such thing.
    
    Barlowe: Dracula's power comes from the darkness in people's hearts--our 
    hearts. Ask yourself then, why does he continue to return, regardless of 
    defeat? Because our hearts yearn for Dracula's presence! Haaaa ha ha ha ha ha!
    
    Shanoa: ...Just another victim of [Dominus]... It's driven you mad!
    
    (The vessel starts to spew black smoke. Barlowe raises himself slightly.)
    
    Barlowe: No, Shanoa... How can you be blind to this? ...If you refuse to see, 
    then you are the fool!
    
    (The smoke covers Barlowe, and he laughs insanely.)
    
    Barlowe: Oh ho ho... What's this? This power... My strength is returning! Yes 
    my lord, I see... I will destroy the infernal seal with your blessing! 
    ...Truly providence, that Dracula would honor me with his guidance!
    
    (Barlowe crawls to the vessel and hangs on to it, screaming "Lord Dracula!")
    
    Shanoa: No... I feel a new power.
    
    (Beams of light appear from Barlowe.)
    
    Barlowe: ...I will give my life to undo the seal, Master. Return to us, Lord 
    Dracula!
    
    (Purple smoke flies from the vessel as it explodes. Barlowe is gone.)
    
    Shanoa: It can't be!
    
    (The room begins to rumble. The scene changes to show Dracula's Castle rise. 
    It returns to Shanoa, who crouches.)
    
    Shanoa: ...Now I've lost everything... my past, my emotions, my brother, and 
    my purpose... I'm empty. ...there's nothing left for me.
    
    (With control back, Shanoa can now head to Dracula's Castle.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Dracula's Castle*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (A still shot is shown of Shanoa staring at Dracula's Castle.)
    
    Shanoa: Here I am... It's all gone. ...What little I had, anyway. No, that's 
    not true, there's one thing left... ...My mission. I'm the only one left who 
    can end this. Hear me, [Dracula]! I am the morning sun, come to vanquish this 
    horrible night!
    
    (Shanoa comes across the statue of Cerberus.)
    
    Shanoa: There are magic energies coursing through this room... If that statue 
    is Cerberus, then this must be the gateway into Hell. I just need to figure 
    out how to unseal it...
    
    (After some exploring, Shanoa finds one of the three Cerberus Glyphs.)
    
    Shanoa: This Glyph is resonating with something... Could there be another one?
    
    (Some time later, Shanoa comes across the second Cerberus Glyph.)
    
    Shanoa: This Glyph resonates just like the other one... There must be a third.
    
    (Shanoa finds the third Cerberus Glyph as well.)
    
    Shanoa: It's resonating with the others! Is this the final piece? Now the 
    question is, how to bring these three Glyphs together?
    
    (Shanoa returns to the Cerberus statue and uses the three Cerberus Glyphs to 
    cause it to lower.)
    
    Shanoa: ...It worked. The power inside is incredible...is it [Dracula]? The 
    time has come, Albus. To end this, I must tread into Hell itself.
    
    (Shanoa enters the throne room to find Dracula sitting there.)
    
    Dracula: Such a lovely maiden... Are you the one to whom I owe this great 
    pleasure? Tell me your desire, child. Is it eternal life you seek? A place at 
    my side?
    
    Shanoa: I am not your benefactor.
    
    Dracula: No? Then please...Tell me of yourself. Surely you've realized my 
    company comes at a price.
    
    Shanoa: I am the blade to banish all evil, and I've come to see you 
    annihilated. The time of your destruction is at hand; die, Demon Lord 
    [Dracula]!
    
    Dracula: Bah ha ha ha ha ha! What an amusing woman! Coome to me, child; I 
    haven't danced in ages!
    
    (Shanoa manages to do much damage to Dracula, but he merely laughs.)
    
    Dracula: What nonsense is this? You will never defeat me with such feeble 
    tricks!
    
    Shanoa: My power alone may not be enough, but with [Dominus], I can destroy 
    you, fiend!
    
    (Shanoa uses the three Dominus Glyphs, flooding the screen with black, red, 
    and purple.)
    
    Dracula: But this power is... NO! It can't be my--
    
    (Shanoa collapses.)
    
    Shanoa: I'm sorry, Albus... I couldn't...keep my promise...
    
    Dracula: GyeaaaAAARGH!!!
    
    (Dracula vanishes, and the screen turns black.)
    
    Shanoa: I've fulfilled my mission; now there's nothing left... My life... I 
    feel it... ...ebbing away. ...so quiet... I can't hear anything.
    
    ???: Name's Albus. I guess we're brother and sister now.
    
    Shanoa: ...what?
    
    ???: Sir! Name me as the bearer. I can't allow Shanoa to risk her life.
    
    Shanoa: ...Albus's memories from Dominus must be flowing through my mind... 
    They're the only memories left to me now...
    
    ???: What... kind of brother would I be...if I didn't protect you...? 
    That's...my role.
    
    Shanoa: Now I see why Albus risked his life for me... ...... ...Why am I 
    crying? Such warm tears, I... This must be some sort of dream--a final vision 
    before I die...
    
    Albus: This is no dream, Shanoa. The tears you shed are your own.
    
    Shanoa: Is that...Albus!?
    
    (The throne room appears, and Shanoa rises.)
    
    Shanoa: ...Not a dream. My tears were real.
    
    Albus: Once I realized I was allowed to exist within Dominus, I thought to 
    find out what else had been absorbed... It seems your precious sacrifice 
    remained intact.
    
    Shanoa: Albus! I thought you were gone!
    
    Albus: Since my existence was questionable at best, once we parted ways I 
    wandered the darkness inside [Dominus] to see if I could locate the memories 
    it had taken from you... As soon as you used the Glyph to stop Dracula, its 
    dark power rushed away, leaving one glimmer behind. That last trace of light 
    was your sacrifice...
    
    Shanoa: That is so like you, Albus. You can't just solve every problem on your 
    own without telling me!
    
    Albus: ...To be fair, I am your big brother, after all.
    
    Shanoa: But...thank you, Albus. Now I can die with such happiness in my 
    heart.
    
    Albus: Shanoa... there's no need for you to die.
    
    Shanoa: I've already used [Dominus], Albus. That power comes at the cost of my 
    life.
    
    Albus: [Dominus] requires but a single soul.
    
    Shanoa: ...You're taking my place!? Albus, no! You've already done so much, 
    and I haven't repaid you!
    
    Albus: No arguments, Shanoa. This is my role.
    
    Shanoa: No, I...!
    
    Albus: If you want to repay me, then you can grant one final wish.
    
    Shanoa: ...Anything.
    
    Albus: Smile for me. That will be enough.
    
    Shanoa: But--
    
    Albus: Please... Before I fade away...
    
    Shanoa: O...Okay...
    
    (A portrait is shown of Shanoa, smiling through her tears.)
    
    Albus: Beautiful. I... I can finally...
    
    (Glitters fly from Shanoa's body, vanishing.)
    
    Shanoa: Albus...? Wait, don't... No! ALBUS!!!
    
    (The throne room begins to shake and collapse. Shanoa runs out of it and 
    watches as the castle sinks away. She lowers her head, then runs away from it.)
    
    Narration: Unknown to the outside world, Good had vanquished Dracula's evil 
    once more, as all record of Ecclesia vanished into the mists of time...
    
    (Credits roll.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV. Bad Ending
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (If Shanoa kills Albus without saving all the villagers, this is what happens.)
    
    (Shanoa manages to defeat Albus in a fight. He collapses, and the last piece 
    of Dominus appears above him.)
    
    Shanoa: This will complete [Dominus], the power that corrupted Albus...and 
    consumed him. Can this cursed power truly be used to vanquish evil? ...I'll 
    return the final piece to Barlowe--my mission is complete.
    
    (Control is granted, but Albus cannot be spoken to or examined. Shanoa absorbs 
    Dominus Agony. The screen flashes white, and then goes black. The scene 
    changes to Barlowe's room, where Shanoa has already arrived.)
    
    Shanoa: It's done, Sir. I've retrieved [Dominus].
    
    Barlowe: And Albus? Did he yield, or did he...
    
    Shanoa: It... was too late. I'm sorry.
    
    Barlowe: Unfortunate... but it cannot be helped. He wanted just the same as 
    both of us. Perhaps he simply wanted it too much. But still, there is a way to 
    honor him. Use [Dominus], and see the mission through. Good Albus would have 
    wanted it that way. The time has come--to the forbidden room!
    
    (The screen becomes dark, and then shows Shanoa standing in front of the 
    vessel-the pillar from the beginning of the game-with Barlowe behind her.)
    
    Barlowe: Take all three pieces; bind them to yourself. Upon the vessel, cast 
    the Union Glyph. And so, the world's greatest hope will rise! Ecclesia's 
    wish... The wish of all mankind. Now go, Shanoa! You will be the one. Our 
    world's savior...
    
    (Control is given. Once Shanoa equips all three Dominus pieces, she uses them. 
    Afterwards, she falls to her knees.)
    
    Shanoa: ...Why? I'm fading... It's so dark...
    
    (Shanoa falls forward as the screen flickers. It turns dark.)
    
    Barlowe: Rejoice, Shanoa. With your sacrifice, the wishes of mankind will all 
    come true...
    
    (The villagers that are not saved are shown, and then a Game Over screen 
    appears.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. Villagers
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The villagers are listed in the order that they can be found in the 
    'Villagers' section on the menu. Nikolai and Jacob have no quests, so their 
    dialogue is limited compared to the others.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Nikolai*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Once you free him, but not all of the other villagers:)
    
    Nikolai: Some of the abducted are even young children... ...All I can do now 
    is to pray for their safety...
    
    Nikolai: Has God ever spoken to you? He spoke to me once, telling me to clear 
    this wasteland and build a village.
    
    Nikolai: He took everyone away. Even a few visitors from out of town, who just 
    happened to be here at the time. Were they simply unfortunate, or is there 
    some plan at work?
    
    Nikolai: I'm Nikolai, the priest watching over this town. Please, you must 
    deliver the villagers from his evil!
    
    (Since the village is empty of people otherwise, Shanoa leaves for Ruvas 
    Forest. She passes through to arrive at Kalidus Channel.)
    
    (Once all the villagers are saved:)
    
    Nikolai: Thank you very much! You rescued every last soul in town. But...their 
    tribulations still weigh heavily upon their hearts... Would you speak with 
    them, and help to lift their spirits?
    
    (Once all the quests are completed:)
    
    Nikolai: You've saved these people's lives, and now you've restored their 
    peace of mind. This village is healing before our eyes. Thank you very much! 
    You are truly a gift from above--a saint if ever there was one. Please accept 
    this. It is a ring that has been passed down in my family.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Master Ring.)
    
    Nikolai: May God guide you wherever you may go.
    
    (If Shanoa talks to him after that, he will repeat his last line.)
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Jacob*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (When first talked to:)
    
    Jacob: Welcome! I'm back in business, thanks to you. My inventory's a little 
    backlogged right now, but have a look around!
    
    Shanoa: Thank you very much.
    
    Jacob: Hey, thank YOU. I'd give you things for free if I could, but... You 
    know how business is these days.
    
    Shanoa: I understand.
    
    Jacob: Good! Well, let me know if you see anything you like!
    
    (Shanoa looks at the items. Once she is done...)
    
    Jacob: I'll have some more coming in soon, so keep on checking back!
    
    (If Shanoa talks to him again:)
    
    Jacob: Shanoa! You get a special discount!
    
    (Once he will have no more new items:)
    
    Jacob: These are all the items I can get. The rest are up to you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Abram*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Abram: It's... It's YOU! You've come at last...
    
    Shanoa: At an awkward time, I see.
    
    Abram: Awkward? No. Inconvenient, YES! I would prepare a proper thanks, a gift 
    of medicine, but no, now is not the time...
    
    Shanoa: What is the matter?
    
    Abram: HE did it. That man who abducted us. He took all the materials I had! I 
    bet.
    
    Shanoa: Albus...? Could it be for some experiment?
    
    Abram: No doubt! So GO, and find me more materials, I command it! THEN, only 
    then, will I trust you enough to thank you! For saving my life!
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Abram: SAGE! I need [Sage]. So find it, and bring it here! And then we'll see 
    who trusts who, won't we? Ha, ha, ha!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him Sage:)
    
    Abram: Yes, that's definitely [Sage]. So thank you. For now. I'll make your 
    precious "medicine." I'll even have the store stock it. But DON'T DARE ask to 
    have it for free! Who do you think I am!?
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Abram: Ah, yes, it's you... Bring me [Chamomile] and [Rue]. Then I'll make an 
    antidote for poison. You're not POISONED are you? Well this'll cure you. And 
    then maybe I'll trust you more. Not much more. But some.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him Chamomile and Rue:)
    
    Abram: Well, here we have it. [Chamomile] and [Rue]. Thanks again. For now. So 
    now I can make your antidotes, and send them to the store for you. You've 
    earned precisely eight points of trust. And if you know anything about trust, 
    you know that's being generous.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Abram: I now require [Sage] and [Mandragora Root].  With these, you won't have 
    to recover your health in tiny increments. You'll get them, right? Oh, you'll 
    get them. I know you. I know your kind. Relentless and infallible. Hurrah!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him Sage and Mandragora Root:)
    
    Abram: ...Well, [Sage], [Mandragora Root]... Yes, you've done it. I knew you 
    would. And now for that promised boost to your health. I'll leave it at the 
    store. I'll even do you a favor, and have it stocked at an extra special 
    price. For everyone. Not just you. Wouldn't want to start and RUMORS of 
    favoritism.
    
    (Fourth quest:)
    
    Listen, my behavior's been a bit erratic since, you know, "the incident." I 
    hope I haven't said anything to... enrage you. Really, I meant that.
    
    Shanoa: It's quite all right. Words don't bother me.
    
    Abram: Good! Well, to patch things up, I'll give you a special medicine! 
    ...That I don't have the materials for. [Sage] and [Merman Meat]. But you can 
    find them!... Oh, yes. YOU can find them! And then I'll make you SUCH a brew 
    as to heal your TERRIBLE WOUNDS on the spot. How about it?
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Abram: That's a yes, isn't it? I'm counting on you.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him Sage and Merman Meat:)
    
    Abram: [Sage] and [Merman Meat]! You've found them! You're amazing! I'll make 
    you a potion of instant-mega-healing! And this one's on the house! ...No, 
    wait. If I gave it to you, you'd take it into danger, and get badly injured 
    just so you could use it. Don't do it! You mean too much to me! So... with 
    that in mind, I'm NOT giving it to you. I'll leave it at the store. And make 
    it really pricey so you don't buy it. Ha!
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Abram: Well, that's it for all the medicine. Except mine, but that's another 
    story. But you have my undying moral support, from back at a nice, safe 
    distance. And whenever you take medicines, think of me. THINK OF ME!!
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Laura*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Laura: You know, you dress like you're in mourning. Waste of a finely shaped--
    
    Shanoa: Enough of that, thank you.
    
    Laura: Well, sorry if I'm out of line, but hear me out, here. A little 
    accessorizing would go a long way, don't you think?
    
    Shanoa: Accessorizing?
    
    Laura: Yeah, you know. Bring over a [Lapiz Lazuli] and I'll show you what I 
    mean.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings a Lapiz Lazuli:)
    
    Laura: Good stone you found, here. Let me work on it and I'll send it to the 
    general store. Give it a try later on! Bet you'll like what you see.
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Laura: You don't smile much. You should! Men'd be lining up at your door.
    
    Shanoa: I do not smile.
    
    Laura: Don't smile? That's...odd. Hmm, what can we do about that...? Got it! I 
    need a [Ruby], a [Sapphire], and an [Emerald]. Wait till you see what I make 
    now! You'll smile without even knowing it.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings a Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald:)
    
    Laura: Here we are; red, blue, and green. The three primary colors of light, 
    you know. You're going to love how those colors all dance together. Check it 
    out at the general store once I'm done.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Laura: Still can't smile, huh...? I wonder if my skills just aren't up to it 
    yet...
    
    Shanoa: It's not you. My troubles go deeper than you think.
    
    Laura: ...Well, how about this? Got a man in your life?
    
    Shanoa: Nobody I'm capable of caring for. What about yourself?
    
    Laura: Well, there's someone... but I'm not good at talking about myself... 
    Right, moving on. I need a [Diamond] and [Onyx]! And I WILL make something 
    powerful enough to touch your heart.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings a Diamond and Onyx:)
    
    Laura: Ha! No heart can withstand the combined power of these two stones! I'll 
    send this over to the general store when it's done.
    
    (Fourth quest:)
    
    Laura: STILL can't smile, huh? I must be doing something wrong...
    
    Shanoa: It's not that. You can't stir emotions that don't exist.
    
    Laura: Damn it! Last ditch effort. Do me a favor and bring me some 
    [Alexandrite]. I'll pull out all the stops. This is going to be the greatest 
    work of my life!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings an Alexandrite:)
    
    Laura: The setting is ready. It's studded with all the gems you brought me 
    earlier. Now, I just have to set the [Alexandrite] you brought me in the 
    center and...! My masterpiece! The [Royal Crown] is complete! Well? Touching, 
    right?
    
    Shanoa: I lost my emotions. An absent heart cannot stir.
    
    Laura: I see... Guess I couldn't do it. But I CAN do all this. You just took 
    my work to a whole new level. And all this talk about your feelings made me 
    think about my own... Would you take this [Royal Crown]? Call it a memento.
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Laura: Trying so hard to touch your heart... It taught me a few things about 
    mine. I ran away once. My master kept pointing out my faults, and I ran away 
    from him, but my faults came with me. You helped me get rid of them. I know 
    what good I can do now, though. For my work, and for him.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Eugen*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Eugen: 3 [Iron Ore].
    
    Shanoa: Excuse me?
    
    Eugen: Your armor's shabby. Bring 3 [Iron Ore]. Then we'll talk.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him 3 Iron Ore:)
    
    Eugen: All right, I'll make a couple of new pieces and put them up on sale at 
    Jacob's store. And no, you don't get them for free. I put my heart and soul 
    into this.
    
    Shanoa: Of course.
    
    Eugen: But, I also pay my suppliers. So here.
    
    (Shanoa receives 2400 gold.)
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Eugen: You must be having a rough time of it.
    
    Shanoa: I have a mission that I must accomplish.
    
    Eugen: If you say so--not my business. Tell you what: Bring 3 [Silver Ore]. 
    I'll make you something good.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him 3 Silver Ore:)
    
    Eugen: Good, good. You'll see what I can make with these. Check Jacob's store 
    later. And here's your payment for the materials.
    
    (Shanoa receives 3600 gold.)
    
    Eugen: Father Nikolai saved my life way back when. I asked him how to pay that 
    debt, and he just said, "Do what you can." So, here I am, just doing what I 
    can, where I am, with what I have. You do what you can, too. And if you run 
    into trouble again, come see me.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Eugen: Lady, I don't want to know what is you're up against out there. But do 
    this: Bring 3 [Gold Ore]. I'll beat 'em into shape as best I can for you.
    
    Shanoa: Thank you very much.
    
    Eugen: No thanks needed. We're all just doing what we can out here. That's all 
    there is to it.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings him 3 Gold Ore:)
    
    Eugen: Armor needs flexibility, you know. It breaks if it doesn't have that. 
    You can't just take every hit; you've gotta dodge sometimes. You know that. 
    You take a lot of risks out there, don't you?
    
    Shanoa: I appreciate the concern. But I know of no other way.
    
    Eugen: Then I'll just have to make sure you can survive the hits. You know the 
    drill; check Jacob's shop later on. Here's your finder's fee.
    
    (Shanoa receives 7200 gold.)
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Eugen: Look, if you have to go out there and push yourself, fine. But if you 
    lose, my armor loses too. So don't die. I don't care if you have to crawl 
    back, just don't die. My reputation's at stake.
    
    Shanoa: I have no intention of dying, Sir.
    
    Eugen: Well, fine. You trust my armor, I'll trust your strength, and that's 
    that.

    *Aeon*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Aeon: Welcome! I've been waiting for you. All day, just twiddling my thumbs. 
    Ahem! I'd love to cook for you, but I need some [Salt]. [Salt] is important. 
    People yell at you if you forget to cook with it. Boy, do they yell at you... 
    Um, where was I? Right! Get me [Salt]. Why don't I go myself? Because I'm the 
    chef. Why should you go get it? Because you're not a chef. That's how things 
    work. Well, get to work, then. My kitchen's going to waste without you!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Salt:)
    
    Aeon: Ah, [Salt]. Thanks! You can flavor things with this, you know. Here, 
    watch! Ta-da! [Corn Soup]! Just like that. Here, have some. My treat for all 
    your hard work.
    
    (Shanoa receives Corn Soup.)
    
    Aeon: You know, I don't get many customers. Guess people like eating at home 
    around here. Anyway, I'll start stocking corn soup at the general store.
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Aeon: Ah, you surprised me! It gets so quiet in here... You know, I've been 
    thinking I should cook something exotic for you, but I need ingredients for 
    that. You know, like...[Raw Killer Fish]! That's the stuff. Let's cook us up 
    some [Killer Fish]. How hard can it be? Just bring some in, and I'll take a 
    shot at it! Hurry up!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Raw Killer Fish:)
    
    Aeon: Ah, thanks! This must be [Raw Killer Fish]. You can tell by the way, um, 
    the, um, fangs, and the thing with the fins... [Killer Fish]! Now it's time to 
    break out those old chef instincts, honed in the fires of many a kitchen. 
    ...And voila! [Killer Fish BBQ]. Bon appetit!
    
    (Shanoa receives Killer Fish BBQ.)
    
    Aeon: Wow! Fishtastic! ...Right? I mean, I'll take your word for it. I'm not 
    going to taste it. Taste is overrated. Last time I tasted my own fish, I 
    passed out and upset some people. Never again!
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Aeon: I've finally realized why the restaurants I worked at all went out of 
    business. And I think I know why you're my only customer. Feel free to 
    disagree, but I think it might be because my food stinks! See, I figured 
    everyone has different tastes, so why bother trying to make something taste 
    good? Can't please everyone, right? Wrong. I know just the way to turn 
    business around. Bring me some [Tasty Meat]. Can't go wrong with that! I mean, 
    it must be called that for a reason! So bring me some, please!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Tasty Meat:)
    
    Aeon: Ha! No doubt, this is [Tasty Meat], all right. The aroma alone gives it 
    away. Now I can cook with pride, just like a full-fledged chef. Here, a 
    special treat for my best and only customer: [Thick Steak].
    
    (Shanoa receives Thick Steak.)
    
    Aeon: Who knew that paying attention to taste could make food taste better? 
    It's taken me over 20 years to get here, but that's how tough it is to be a 
    chef. I hope you can also become good at your profession by the time you're my 
    age.
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Aeon: Well, you've made me a master chef. I can't ask any more of you. ...So 
    why are you still my only customer? Did my cooking get too fancy, or what? 
    That must be it. I raised the bar too high.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Marcel*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Marcel: So here's a question: Why would the head office put a TOTAL press ban 
    on my story about you? ...What kind of magic did you use again?
    
    Shanoa: ...It's nothing special.
    
    Marcel: Well, it's not my place to pry... On a totally unrelated note, how 
    about you and me strike a little deal?
    
    Shanoa: What sort of deal?
    
    Marcel: I leave you and your magic alone, scrap my story, and you take me some 
    pictures for a different story instead.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Camera.)
    
    Shanoa: Very well.
    
    Marcel: You ever hear of the [Cave Troll]? It's a hairy beast that sucks your 
    blood clean out! Track it down and snap a picture or two for me. Careful--it's 
    skittish!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Picture 1:)
    
    Marcel: So this is really it, eh? Well, it looks just like the rumors say. 
    We're a sports magazine, but we cover a lot of stuff like this for some 
    reason. Anyway, here's your share of the reward.
    
    (Shanoa receives 6000 gold.)
    
    Marcel: The magazine should be out at the general store soon. Check it out, if 
    you like.
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Marcel: Ah, you. I've been waiting. Everybody loved the Cave Troll story. So 
    now we need to top it! Get me a shot of the [Jersey Devil]!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Picture 2:)
    
    Marcel: Wow! Just...wow! So this is a [Jersey Devil]! And it's neither a 
    devil, nor wearing a jersey... Well, whatever. Our readers'll eat it up 
    anyway. Here's your cut. Enjoy!
    
    (Shanoe receives 8000 gold.)
    
    Marcel: The magazine will be at the store, so check it out. That's what the 
    pros do.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Marcel: All right, your next mark's some white, furry snowman called a [Yeti]. 
    I heard your photos alone have more than doubled our circulation! So keep it 
    up! We're counting on you!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Picture 3:)
    
    Marcel: So the [Yeti] is real too, eh? Never would have guessed. Well, this is 
    huge! Here's your cut. Nice going!
    
    (Shanoa receives 12000 gold.)
    
    Marcel: I might start hearing offers from a better paper soon! Well, the mag's 
    at the general store, as usual. Make sure to check it out.
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Marcel: You're not going to believe this: the Chief fired me. He only wanted 
    his serious little sports articles. Bah! Well, whatever. I was thinking of 
    settling here anyway. With the Yeti and the Cave Troll. And, you know, Laura 
    the jeweler...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *George*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    George: Your timing is impeccable! For I have just composed an ode to terror! 
    And now, I shall record it for all time, upon this--my friend's phonograph! 
    Lend your ears, as I play upon this...this...
    
    Shanoa: Hmm?
    
    George: ...This broken violin. That I forgot was broken. Oh, damn it all. 
    Ahem! Would you kindly procure me some [Horse Hair], that I might make a new 
    bow?
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Horse Hair:)
    
    George: Many thanks! I shall now record the piece. The record will go on sale 
    at the general store--and you can be its first buyer!
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    George: The [Banshee's wail] is said to be an omen of death. Far too dangerous 
    to risk recording...unless you care to volunteer! Here, just use the 
    [phonograph] when the banshee wails! You'll be fine, I'm sure!
    
    (Shanoa receives a Phonograph.)
    
    (Once Shanoa brings the Banshee's Wail:)
    
    George: Wonderful! Well, I'll need that [phonograph] back to record the piece. 
    But please, give it a listen when the record arrives at the general store.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    George: And now for my magnum opus...but I need the proper tools to write it 
    down. [Black Ink] and an [Eagle Feather], to be precise. Well, hop to it!
    
    Shanoa: Doesn't the general store sell pens and ink?
    
    George: Ah, but no ordinary quill can express the tortured soul of a true 
    artist! I wouldn't expect you to understand-no one does.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Black Ink and an Eagle Feather:)
    
    George: Thank you, milady! Now, with this mighty quill, I engrave my place in 
    the hallowed scroll of history! This haunted land has blessed me with its 
    taints and torments. Oh, and buy the record at the general store.
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    George: After I recorded my final piece, the [phonograph] I borrowed from a 
    friend exploded! That's the price of art, I say...but my friend will likely 
    disagree. Perhaps I'll stay a while, here. Where he's less likely to find me.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Serge*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Talking to him before Irina is back results in:)
    
    Serge: Sis came home, but Mom hasn't yet... What if she...!?
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Serge: Hey, lady, what if we get kidnapped again? Would you still save us?
    
    Shanoa: I make no promises.
    
    Serge: Well, I know how we can find out! Okay, here's the rules: I'm going to 
    go hide. And I'm going to count to 15, and you find me before I finish! 
    There's a prize, even! Okay, here I go!
    
    (If Shanoa fails:)
    
    Serge: Time's up! C'mon, lady, you can do better than that!
    
    (Once Shanoa finds him:)
    
    Serge: Hey, you did it! You really did find me. Here's the prize. It's like a 
    "thank you"!
    
    (Shanoa receives Red Drops.)
    
    Serge: Okay, I'm going to go now. Come over again sometime!
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Serge: Hey lady, you ever see an [Owl]? 'Cause I hear it's good luck if you 
    see one, and I think I could use some good luck, just in case. So if you see 
    an [Owl], could you bring it over? I'll give you something neat if you do!
    
    (Once Shanoa shows him the owl summon:)
    
    Serge: Wow! A real [Owl]! Thanks, Lady! Here, it's a present for you. Come 
    over again!
    
    (Shanoa receives Blue Drops.)
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Serge: I'm bad at blind tag. When it's all dark, I get scared and I can't 
    move. You don't get scared, though, do you? Hey, can you show me how it's 
    done? Put on a blindfold and catch me before I count to 30!
    
    (If Shanoa fails:)
    
    Serge: Time's up! So, what? Are you afraid of the dark too?
    
    (Once Shanoa finds him:)
    
    Serge: Lady, you're amazing! You caught me when you couldn't even see! Guess 
    you can do that cause you're so brave! Thanks for showing me that. Here, take 
    this.
    
    (Shanoa receives Green Drops.)
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Serge: You know, I keep on asking you for help or hoping for good luck... But 
    I think I get it now. I have to be tough and brave on my own. So I'll work on 
    that.
    
    (After Albus dies for good ending:)
    
    Serge: Everyone keeps saying that the man who kidnapped us is a bad guy. I 
    don't know, though... I think maybe they're wrong, 'cause he said something to 
    me... He said, "You have to grow strong enough to protect your kid sister."
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Anna*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (Talking to her before Serge and Irina are back results in:)
    
    Anna: My mom and big brother haven't come home yet... I hope they're okay...
    
    (Talking to her before Irina is back results in:)
    
    Anna: My brother came back, but Mom still hasn't...
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Anna: Who... are you...
    
    Shanoa: ...!?
    
    Anna: I thought...I'd gotten...rid of that...annoying cat, and now...you...!
    
    Shanoa: Demonic possession?
    
    Anna: Please, Miss... I have to... ...find Tom... Probably on a tall tree...
    
    Shanoa: Ah, the cat. I'll find him.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Tom:)
    
    Tom: Hissss!! Grrrowr!!
    
    Anna: Damn...cat! That FLOWER you swallowed...? No!! Grrraaaargh!
    
    Tom: Mrowr.
    
    Anna: Thank you for bringing Tom, Miss. Tom protects me from evil spirits. He 
    must have been off looking for the flower that wards them off. Oh? Tom has 
    something in his mouth. Here, you can have it, Miss.
    
    (Shanoa receives Black Drops.)
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Anna: Miss, you remember Tom, don't you? My friend, Tom the cat? He's been 
    acting tired since he drove away that spirit the other day. Will he get better 
    if we give him a [Mouse]? They're too fast for me to catch... So... would you 
    catch a [Mouse] for Tom? Please?
    
    (Once Shanoa brings a Mouse:)
    
    Anna: Wow! Thank you! You'll get better now, right Tom? Here! It's a treasure 
    I found a long time ago. You can have it, Miss!
    
    (Shanoa receives Heart Earrings.)
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Anna: Miss! Tom isn't getting any better. I asked Father Nikolai and He said 
    the flower that wards off evil is toxic! But Tom ate a lot of it to protect 
    me! Is that, why he's so sick?
    
    Shanoa: Hm...
    
    Anna: Then he said all I need is another kind of charm or something... 
    Um...it's a stone called ch...ch...[Chrysoberyl]. Can you find one?
    
    (Once Shanoa brings a Chrysoberyl:)
    
    Anna: Oh! Is this [Chrysoberyl]? Thank you! But Tom has no way to carry a 
    stone... If only it were like an accessory, then Tom could wear it.
    
    (Once Shanoa talks to Laura:)
    
    Laura: Oh...? You have a new gem. Here, I'll appraise it for you.
    
    Shanoa: Please do.
    
    Laura: ...Wow. This is [Chrysoberyl]. And a rare cat's eye color, at that.
    
    Shanoa: Cat's eye?
    
    Laura: There's a streak of light and it looks like a cat's eye, so they call 
    it that. Oh, yeah, Irina's girl Anna has a cat. You can compare it with the 
    real thing.
    
    Shanoa: You mean Tom.
    
    Laura: That girl gets possessed easily, and Tom the cat apparently protects 
    her. It must be tough for him; desperate to save Anna.
    
    Shanoa: Anna wants to help Tom with a charm.
    
    Laura: ...! That's it! That's the way to do it! We can give [Chrysoberyl] to 
    those kids... That'd ward off evil! I'll make a charmed collar.
    
    Shanoa: All right. Please do that.
    
    Laura: Long ago, an order for a dog collar got canceled. That'll come in handy 
    now. Attach this, adjust it to a shorter length, and look! It's done.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Cat Collar.)
    
    Laura: It's for those kids. No need to pay me. Hurry along and give it to them.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Anna the Cat Collar:)
    
    Anna: Oh! This cat collar has the [Chrysoberyl] on it! It's perfect for Tom!
    
    Tom: ...Meow.
    
    Anna: Thank you, Miss. Now, Tom won't have to hurt himself to protect me. 
    Here, please, it's a [Ribbon] for you, Miss. My greatest treasure! Well, 
    except for Tom. It'll be all right, as long as he and I are together!
    
    (Shanoa receives a Ribbon.)
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Anna: You know, I have strange dreams sometimes. A dream where a man with a 
    whip is fighting something. Fighting something scary.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Monica*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Monica: Listen, I... There isn't much I can do to thank you, but please! 
    Please let me make a dress. ...Would that be good enough?
    
    Shanoa: Thank you, but I do not need a dress.
    
    Monica: Oh. Well... you're right. My dresses wouldn't be--
    
    Shanoa: You misunderstand. Dresses don't suit me.
    
    Monica: Well... Well, hang on! I bet I CAN make a dress you'd look good in. 
    Let's see... Cotton! That's what we need. Where's the cotton? Oh, no! I'm out 
    of cotton thread. I'm always doing this... And I need at least 5 
    [Cotton Thread] to make a dress! Sigh... Maybe you shouldn't have even 
    bothered saving me...
    
    (Once Shanoa brings 5 Cotton Thread:)
    
    Monica: Y-You brought me [Cotton Thread]? You went out of your way just for 
    me? I'll make your dress in a flash! And...done! A [Cotton Dress]. Please 
    accept it.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Cotton Dress.)
    
    Monica: Maybe I should make more, and sell them at the general store. Not that 
    you need to bother, but if you'd like another, you could buy one.
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Monica: Listen, I wanted to repay you, but I ended up sending you on some 
    silly errand instead. How rude of me! This time, please let me repay you 
    properly. With this [Silk thread]... ...... Oh, no! The silkworms all died 
    while I was gone. No more thread... And I'd need at least 5 [Silk Thread] to 
    make a [Silk dress]! I keep on doing this... Maybe I should just crawl into a 
    hole...
    
    (Once Shanoa brings 5 Silk Thread:)
    
    Monica: Th-This is [Silk Thread]! Did you go get these just for me? I'm sooo 
    touched! So touched that I finished making the dress somehow! A [Silk Dress]. 
    Please accept it.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Silk Dress.)
    
    Monica: Maybe I'll keep making these, and have them sold in the general store. 
    Um...if you'd like... Only if you'd like, please consider buying...them.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Monica: I'm so sorry! That's TWO fetch errands I've sent you on now. And 
    you've done them both, and I still haven't properly repaid you... Wait. I know 
    how: cashmere. The greatest material ever created... Wait, no. I don't even 
    know what it looks like! Silly me, trying to make a dress from material I've 
    never seen... But if I HAD 5 [Cashmere Thread], I could make you the most 
    wonderful dress... Stupid Monica. I can't make a dress like that!
    
    (Once Shanoa brings 5 Cashmere Thread:)
    
    Monica: Th-This is [Cashmere Thread]? Where did you FIND these? For me? 
    Y-You're amazing! So amazing that I just made this dress instantly! A 
    [Party Dress]. Please accept it.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Party Dress.)
    
    Monica: I'll make others, and I'll have them sold at the general store. You 
    could buy them. If you wanted to. By mistake, maybe.
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Monica: Ha! Look at poor little Monica. Can't do a thing without someone else 
    to bring her materials. Then again, I do seem to know how to make a dress, and 
    if I could get my own materials...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Irina*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Irina: Oh, good, you're here. I actually wanted to ask you a favor. ...It's 
    rather complicated, I'm afraid. You see, some [Crows] have been running amok 
    around here lately.
    
    Shanoa: ...Crows.
    
    Irina: I wonder if there's a nest. Anyway, they're so vicious. Always 
    peck-peck-pecking and swooping at people... Could you get rid of, I don't 
    know, 30 of them? It'd be a big help. Thanks! I owe you.
    
    Shanoa: Right.
    
    (Once Shanoa kills 30 Black Crows:)
    
    Irina: I'm sorry about the other day. Asking you to get rid of all those 
    [Crows]. I can be so impatient when there're things to do. Keeps me up at 
    night. But...you really did it for me! Those [Crows] won't be nearly such a 
    bother anymore. Thanks! And here, this is about all I have for you--please 
    accept it.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Mocha Eclair.)
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Irina: Hey, you! I was just thinking about you! You know, there's this nice 
    boy I know; he'd be perfect for you. I'll introduce you!
    
    Shanoa: That isn't necessary...
    
    Irina: What're you saying? Don't tell me some man has you in his clutches 
    already. Men are beasts, you know. Especially the ones out there, howling at 
    the moon, keeping me up. Could you get rid of, say, 10 of them for me? Really? 
    You'll do it? Thanks! I owe you.
    
    Shanoa: ...Think nothing of it.
    
    (Once Shanoa kills 10 Werewolves:)
    
    Irina: I'm sorry, again. Asking you to go out and fight [Werewolf] 
    creatures... It's just that, when things need doing, I keep on thinking about 
    them until they get done! But now I can rest easy. So here, for you.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Tart Tatin.)
    
    Irina: So, were those monsters wolves? Or were they human?
    
    Shanoa: I'm not sure...
    
    Irina: Well, that's going to bother me for a while... Hmm...
    
    (Before unlocking Large Cavern:)
    
    Irina: Even with the howling gone, it's hard for me to sleep.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Irina: I heard from Father Nikolai you're chasing a vampire? Is there anything 
    I can do?
    
    Shanoa: No, I...
    
    Irina: Oh, really? But you know, speaking of vampires, there is a rumor going 
    around: a vampire from the Orient is in the [Large Cavern]. How terrifying! 
    How could anyone sleep at night with such a thing on the loose? Can you get 
    rid of it? Great! I owe you.
    
    Shanoa: Of course.
    
    (Once Shanoa kills Jiang Shi:)
    
    Irina: You know, really, I don't always ask this much of people. Especially 
    not where vampires are concerned. But somebody had to do it. And now we're all 
    happy it's done! Please, you must take your reward.
    
    (Shanoa receives Winged Boots.)
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Irina: It's never easy for a woman to raise two children alone. But when they 
    smile, all the hardship just disappears. There's really nothing I'd rather be 
    doing than living for my children.

    *Daniela*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (First quest:)
    
    Daniela: Oh, you came. I'm so happy. I was about to bake a cake. Make yourself 
    at home.
    
    Shanoa: Thank you, but I--
    
    Daniela: My Grandfather and I would always bake together. That man loved 
    sweets. Especially in the middle of a good, old-fashioned monster hunt.
    
    Shanoa: Monster hunt? You mean--!?
    
    Daniela: Nothing better than the view from atop the [Lighthouse] after an epic 
    battle. I'd love to see that horizon again... Say, you do draw?
    
    Shanoa: Draw...? You don't mean from the [Lighthouse]!
    
    Daniela: I'll give you a sketchbook. When you get to the top, draw the view 
    for me. There's still time until the cake is done baking. Come back then.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Sketchbook.)
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Lighthouse Art:)
    
    Daniela: Oh, what a wonderful drawing. This is for me? ...My, it's such a 
    lovely view! But how could you have possibly known?
    
    Shanoa: You...told me.
    
    Daniela: Oh, silly child, I'd remember if I had. But such splendid talent 
    deserves a special prize. Here, I've no need of this.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Garbo Hat.)
    
    Daniela: Come again, and we'll share a nice cup of tea.
    
    (Second quest:)
    
    Daniela: How strange. I just had a feeling that you might be coming. I wonder 
    why. Perhaps we're distant relatives, by chance? Where were you born?
    
    Shanoa: I'm sorry, but I don't remember.
    
    Daniela: Oh, that's fine. Where you were born isn't a big deal. What's 
    important is where you die. I want to die near the falls at [Tristis Pass]. 
    Grandfather and I used to train there. Now, it's where he rests... Oh, won't 
    you do a drawing of that waterfall? I'm sure you'd do a beautiful job.
    
    Shanoa: Another drawing?
    
    Daniela: Please. A drawing of [Tristis Pass] waterfall. I'll look forward to 
    it.
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Waterfall Art:)
    
    Daniela: Oh, this the waterfall at [Tristis Pass]. I mastered the secret arts 
    there.
    
    Shanoa: Secret... arts?
    
    Daniela: Well, that doesn't matter. I have to repay you for this splendid 
    drawing... Oh, yes. How about this? I don't know what it's for, but it's very 
    nice.
    
    (Shanoa receives a Treasure Hat.)
    
    Daniela: You'll come again, right? You don't have to say it. I have a feeling 
    you will.
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Daniela: I was just gazing at the drawings you did for me. Look, they're very 
    fine.
    
    Shanoa: I don't understand... I...I lost my emotions.
    
    Daniela: Did you really? I never noticed. But yes, if you live for a long 
    time, you tend to lose all sorts of things. I lost my hat last week. What was 
    it before that? I've lost a lot of things. But the saddest was when I lost 
    Grandfather. I cried till my tears ran out. Say, won't you draw the church 
    where I lost Grandfather? It's on [Oblivion Ridge], and there's a tiny cross 
    there. It's sad, but I want to make sure I remember it. If you draw it, I'll 
    be able to remember both you and Grandfather.
    
    Shanoa: The church is in [Oblivion Ridge]...
    
    (Once Shanoa brings Church Art:)
    
    Daniela: Oh, you drew it for me. Drawings are so great. The same scenery is 
    completely different between artists. And these days, they have those 
    photographs--a reporter showed me. But I like these drawings a hundred times 
    better, because you drew them.
    
    Shanoa: ......
    
    Daniela: This is my thanks for the drawing. Please keep it. I hope it's 
    enough for all you've given me. We've lost lots of things, but...sometimes we 
    gain things too, you know? Like you, for example. Like myself. We've each 
    gained a friend. Now, those are priceless, so let's not lose them. Do come 
    again, Shanoa. You're always welcome here.
    
    (Shanoa receives Dowsing Hat.)
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Daniela: Say, Shanoa, when it's all over, why don't the two of us go on a 
    picnic?
    
    Shanoa: When it's all over?
    
    Daniela: I can sort of tell that you're up against something serious. When 
    it's over, come on by. I'll prepare a lovely cake for your return.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    *Cats*
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    (With the Arma Felix Glyph, Shanoa can talk to cats. They have multiple things 
    they say. Tom's varies depending on which quest of Anna's you are completing.)
    
    Tofu: Hi! I'm Tofu! Our names are kind of funny, huh? Think so? We came from 
    far away, but now I really like it here!
    
    Tofu: Have you seen a pile of pretty rocks? Break 'em and... uh... I forget.
    
    SoybeanFlour: New around here, huh? make sure you say hi to my feline friends. 
    We know...secrets. Important ones.
    
    SoybeanFlour: Get spotted in prison and a scary machine comes out. ...But 
    that doesn't mean it's not worth fighting.
    
    Ink: In a room as black as me, there's some treasure, see? Get rid of the 
    ouchy things and you're home free.
    
    (First/second quest:)
    
    Tom: I'll protect Anna, even if she is high maintenance...
    
    (Third quest:)
    
    Tom: Why isn't my body moving? Ugh... Grrrr... I won't lose to some stupid 
    evil spirit!
    
    (All quests completed:)
    
    Tom: Score! This has got to be the best collar ever. In all my years, I've 
    never had anything so fancy. ...little tight, though.
