FANGS FOR THE MEMORIES
In the first Castlevania Adventure, the fearless vampire hunter Christopher
Belmont fought toe-to-toe and whip-to-wing against the vampire king, Count
Dracula. Belmont defeated the Count and destroyed his castle, but
unfortunatley Dracula used what remained of his magical powers to
transform his body into mist, thereby making good his escape. However, his
powers were so depleted that he was left unable to tranform into "human"
form. The count decided to wait and rebuild his dark forces. Deep inside
his black heart he swore revenge on Christopher Belmont and his family.
Fifteen years later, a ceremony was held in the town of Transylvania. The
son of Christopher Belmont, Soleiyu Belmont, had come of age, and it was
time for the title of vampire hunter to be passed down to him. The ceremony
was used to commemorate this occasion. All the citizens of Transylvania
rejoiced, hoping that the father-son team of vampire hunters would bring
peace to the region forever.

But on the morning after the ceremony, it was discovered that Soleiyu Belmont
had vanished into thin air. The ceremony was the chance Dracula had waited
for. Soleiyu received great sacred power in the ceremony to mark his
adulthood, and Dracula used his last bit of magic to turn Soleiyu's powers
against him, tranforming him into a terrible demon. Then, aided by the
Soleiyu-demon, Dracula was able to assume human form once again. That
evening, to the northeast of the village, the earth shook with a thunderous
roar and four ominous castles appeared. And, hidden in a lake at the center
of these castles, was another castle---the new lair of Count Dracula!
Horrified to learn that his son had been altered by the forces of evil,
Christopher Belmont determined to save Soleiyu and break the ambitions of
the Count. He journeyed to the new castles, each ruled by a different power
of darkness placed there by the Soleiyu-demon to stop anyone who would tamper
with the mystic spell Dracula had cast upon him. Nevertheless, in order to
save the village of Transylvania and free his son, Christopher had no choice
but to go and fight once again.
