Listed below are characters from all of the Castlevania video games in the order of their first appearances and the game's release.
The Castlevania games have always had a single focus on the main antagonist, , who is based on the original character by Bram Stoker. With a few exceptions, Dracula has been the villain of every title.
Originally named Mathias Cronqvist, Dracula is a former mortal turned wicked following the death of his wife, Elisabetha. His lust for vengeance turned him into an immortal vampire. He later took the name Count Vlad Tepes Dracula. He desires to wage war against humanity for having killed his second wife,(She was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake) and take the world under his possession, but has been foiled by the Belmonts in every generation of his immortal life. When defeated, Dracula is prophesied to return again every 100 years.
Despite being the primary villain of the series, his role is often passive, and he simply waits in his castle, letting his monsters confront anyone for him. His appearance varies from game to game, but a few recurring ones exist. He is one of the playable characters in Judgment. He is voiced by Scott McCulloch (Symphony of the Night), Crispin Freeman (Lament of Innocence), Douglas Rye (Curse of Darkness), Patrick Seitz (other entries), and Robert Carlyle (Lords of Shadow).
