Version 1.2 - Added HP totals for Galamoth and Dracula, thanks to an e-mailer.

Version 1.1 - So yeah, I'm the idiot who managed to spell his own name wrong
              in the header. 

Version 1.0 - This is the first version of the guide, so there will obviously
              be typos and errors and such. I will limit them with a spell
              checker of course, but not everything can be perfect. If you see
              anything that is glaringly wrong and feel the need to contact me
              about it, be my guest. I'm always open to people pointing out my
              mistakes in anything I write.

Hello, and welcome to my Symphony of the Night Bestiary. The premises of this
guide is simple; I will simply list every monster in the game as it appears in
the Bestiary seen when talking to the Librarian within the Long Library. This
guide will read exactly as the Librarian's Bestiary does, and will serve as an
archive of what is in the Librarian's Bestiary for when you don't feel like 
turning the game on and looking it up yourself =)

        Level = The enemy's level
   Hit Points = The enemy's hit points
Strong Versus = Element(s) that will cause less damage to the enemy
       Immune = Element(s) that will cause no damage to the enemy
  Weak Versus = Element(s) that will cause extra damage to the enemy
       Absorb = Element(s) that will heal the enemy
   Drop Items = Items that the enemy will drop; in the event of two items
                listed, the second item is considered a rare drop
   Experience = Amount of experience the enemy gives you when you kill it; 
                note that as you increase in level, the enemies will give less
                experience. The experience listed by the in-game bestiary is
                essentially the maximum experience you get upon the enemy's 
                death, as the number goes down as you increase in level.
         Note = For some enemies, I will throw in an extra note or two not 
                listed by the game

   Drop Items: Zircon
               Monster Vial 1
   Experience: 12
         Note: For whatever reason, Konami decided to give the two different
               merman types the exact same qualities, right down to what items
               they drop and what name they have. The only difference between
               the two is that the fire-spitting Merman is level three instead
               of two, and the fire-spitting Merman has a slightly different
               sprite. Other than that, they're essentially the exact same 
               enemy.

               the Chapel in the first castle; it's also a little stronger than

               Keene for this information, because Lord knows I, along with
               many other people, had no idea what was going on when the
               Paranthropus wouldn't drop a rare item on the first play through
               the game. It was Keene's guide that helped clear this up for me.

               Demons as normal enemies, but they'll only summon other Lesser
               Demons if you leave them alone long enough.

|Beezelbub - Beezelbub, Lord of Flies.                                 No. 136|

   Drop Items: None

   Experience: 4444
         Note: If you read the in-game bestiary, the description for Beezelbub
               actually reads "Beelzebub Lord of Flies". It doesn't mean 
               anything special, but it's funny to look at.

|Richter Belmont - Master vampire hunter.                              No. 140|
o=============================================================================o

        Level: 48
   Hit Points: 400
Strong Versus: None
       Immune: Holy
               Stone
  Weak Versus: Dark
       Absorb: None
   Drop Items: None
               None
   Experience: None
         Note: Even though Richter appears to be an enemy, he isn't. Before
               fighting him, equip the Holy Glasses. You'll see a small green
               sphere following Richter around and controlling him. That sphere
               is Shaft, the Dark Priest responsible for Richter's mind 
               control, and the "proper" way through the battle is to kill
               Shaft, not Richter. However, if you're a fan of seeing all of
               the endings in the game, two are available after this battle.
               You get one ending for killing Richter outright, and another for
               killing Richter with the Holy Glasses equipped.

|Galamoth - Magical being with plan to rule the netherworld.           No. 142|

Strong Versus: None
       Immune: None
  Weak Versus: None
       Absorb: None
   Drop Items: None
               None
   Experience: 9999
         Note: Galamoth has a set amount of Hit Points; however, I don't know
               what it is and the in-game bestiary does not list it. 

o=============================================================================o
|Guardian - High level Armor Lord.                                     No. 143|
o=============================================================================o

        Level: 60
   Hit Points: 500
Strong Versus: Cut
       Immune: Fire
               Thunder
               Ice
  Weak Versus: None
       Absorb: Dark
   Drop Items: Great Sword
               God's Garb
   Experience: 1500
         Note: Until you reach about level 60 or so, the Guardian is the single
               best enemy in the game to level up against. It takes forever
               before the experience received from the Guardian is too low to
               bother with, and when you first come across them, you can gain
               a ton of levels in mere minutes. But don't be careless when
               fighting them, because they're rather strong.

|Death - Dracula's close friend.                                       No. 144|

Strong Versus: None
       Immune: None
  Weak Versus: Holy
       Absorb: Dark
   Drop Items: None
               None
   Experience: 4444
         Note: Like Olrox, Death has a second form that the in-game bestiary
               never bothers to list.

o=============================================================================o
|Shaft - Dark Priest of Dracula.                                       No. 145|

        Level: 88

Strong Versus: None
       Immune: Poison
  Weak Versus: None
       Absorb: None
   Drop Items: None
               None
   Experience: None
         Note: To get Shaft to appear in the bestiary, you have to defeat him,
               then use a Library Card after the battle with Dracula stars. But
               if you do this, take note that you'll have to defeat Shaft again
               when you return to his chamber.

o=============================================================================o
|Dracula - Lord of Wallachia. Father of Alucard.                       No. 146|
o=============================================================================o

        Level: 98
   Hit Points: 9999
Strong Versus: Fire
               Thunder
       Immune: Poison
  Weak Versus: None
       Absorb: Dark
   Drop Items: None
               None
   Experience: None
         Note: To get Dracula to appear in the bestiary, you have to use a
               Library Card and teleport out of the battle. You'll have to 
               fight Shaft a second time, but if a complete bestiary is worth
               it to you, then go for it. Also, like Galamoth, the in-game
               bestiary does not list Dracula's Hit Points.

CJayC: He is one man, and happens to maintain the best site on the internet. 
       There is no way in hell that this is an easy task, especially with the
       fact that GameFAQs is growing at an exponential rate. I can't thank him
       enough for all of the hard work.

Konami: For making the game, maybe? =p

Board 8: You guys are a bunch of lunatics, but I don't know what I'd ever do
         without you <3

Slowflake: For being a great friend and just kicking so much ass all the time.

calculus is easy: He explained to me the difference between "Cut" and "Hit" in
                  the in-game bestiary.

Zach Keene: When I was playing Symphony of the Night for the first time and
            trying to go for a complete bestiary myself, it was Zach and his
            awesome guide that explained to me that the Paranthropus does not
            drop a Ring of Varda until you beat the game once. Mucho thanks to
            Mr. Keene for this information, and FULL credit goes to him for it.

Nicholas Wong: Submitted the HP totals for Galamoth and Dracula.
