- Charlotte Aulin: In short, think of it as a series of walls that surround the magic controlling Dracula's Castle. The painting itself is just the outermost wall. As soon as you break it, it'll regenerate. It's unbreakable.
Jonathan Morris: How convenient. So now what?
Charlotte Aulin: I'll align my magic with the painting's so we can enter it. That'll be the best way to circumvent the castle's magic. The risk is quite high though.
- Jonathan Morris: Sorry, Charlotte. Whenever someone mentions my father, I just lose it.
Charlotte Aulin: That's alright. It's not like you started hating your father just now. But what's the point at getting angry at someone who isn't even here?
Jonathan Morris: It's because he's not here. Listen, My father only taught me the basics of fighting. Then he went and got himself killed, leaving me the heir to the whip! This whip I can't even use. He was always so selfish.
Charlotte Aulin: There must have been a reason. You have to understand the truth of why you've had to fight until now without the whip's power.
Jonathan Morris: Maybe so... But now Dracula may be reviving, and I can't even use the power that I'm meant to use! Even though my father could.
- (Jonathan and Charlotte finally arrive in Dracula's chamber. Dracula sips from a wine glass as he looks out the window, his back turned to his guests)
Jonathan Morris: Oh, so you're ignoring me? Turn and face me! (Jonathan leaps at Dracula, but Death appears and knocks him back)
Death: You will not touch Lord Dracula! This time, let's fight for real!
(Dracula finishes his wine glass and throws it aside, finally turning to face Jonathan and Charlotte)
Dracula: Enough with this sideshow. Why don't we show him our combined power?
