Alucard Returns in Castlevania Nocturne: Ending Explained!

At the end of Castlevania Nocturne, Alucard returns while Richter’s life is in danger from Drolta. Now, let’s dig into the origin of Alucard and his backstory.

Castlevania Nocturne, an action-packed story of vampire hunting on Netflix, is a spin-off of the wildly successful fantasy series, Castlevania, which has a rich backstory in the form of video games and comic book series. Richter, who comes from a long line of vampire hunters and is armed with the Belmont name and whip, engages in combat with a dangerous adversary known as The Vampire Messiah.

Richter and his allies, sorceress Maria Renard and Annette, battle a new vampire coven to stop their leader from bringing about endless darkness as the French Revolution plays out in the backdrop.

Now that the show has arrived, we know that Alucard from the original series returns, and many people might not know who he really is, especially if ‘Castlevania: Nocturne’ is their first adventure with the Castlevania universe. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Previously, we touched on Juste Belmont.

As Alucard Returns at the End of Castlevania Nocturne, Viewers Wonder Who He Really Is!

When Richter‘s life is in danger from Erzsebet’s lieutenant, Drolta, at the end of Castlevania Nocturne, a surprising hero returns. It is none other than Alucard, the immortal son of Dracula Tepes, who three centuries ago fought alongside Trevor Belmont and Sypha against his own father.

After his wife was murdered for pursuing science, Dracula Tepes in the 2017 Castlevania series vowed revenge on humanity. Alucard opposed his father’s cruel plan since he knew that his mother would not have approved of this. Alucard worked with Trevor and Sypha to defeat Dracula in a crucial confrontation. After that, Alucard appeared to vanish from the planet, and even the Belmont family’s future generations had forgotten about him.

In Castlevania Nocturne, Alucard’s return is mysterious. He chills audiences with his terrifying assertion, “I am Alucard,” and his black-and-white aesthetic. Alucard’s existence was only known to Richter, and even he had his doubts. The return of this mysterious and venerable character gives the show a fresh element of mystery.

The spooky blend of supernatural drama, intricate character interactions, and a tantalizing tease of what’s to come are what viewers are left with after watching Castlevania Nocturne. The series continues to enthrall fans with its rich storyline, intricate lore, and surprising turns, ensuring that the Belmonts’ legacy and the Castlevania universe remain.

Alucard’s position in Season 2 (if renewed) remains a mystery. Some claim that he has withdrawn into a profound sleep, similar to the first series. However, if the plot of the game and the anime series matchup, Alucard and Dracula will both likely return. It’s also important to note that many fans are hoping that Alucard will play a bigger part in the story than just a fleeting cameo.

When Does Netflix’s Castlevania: Nocturne Take Place?

The first season of Castlevania Nocturne takes place in 1792, which is 300 years after the events of the original. The plot of Nocturne occurs in the midst of the French Revolution.

We observe a divided Europe because the story takes place during the French Revolution. The Church and its numerous adherents are on one side, and the revolutionaries, who are posing a growing threat to the church, are on the other.

The show centers on a young boy named Richter Belmont, who resides in Boston with his mother but whom she wishes to send to Russia to live with his aunt Tera. He initially refuses to go there, but after his mother is killed by the vampire Olrox, he is forced to move in with his aunt and Maria, her daughter.

Messiah, the devourer of light, terrorizes the earth as a vampire who likes watching her prey’s life slowly ebb away rather than killing them right away. Richter couldn’t allow the vampire to infiltrate the human world because he comes from a line of well-known vampire hunters. He intends to carry on his family’s legacy.
