soma dark lord
Arms Mastery: Soma, though at 19, has mastered a variety of arms such as basic swords, spears, axe, melee punches and hammers as well as the first one to wield firearms ranging from handguns to heavy weapons. Death then wonders if the current events are really Soma's doing, but Soma does not understand what Death means and demands answers. Indeed, while Soma has more generally modern clothing, they share a similar fur collar around their cloak and coat, respectively. Soma fights with a variety of weapons, including swords, spears, and axes. The whip sword is a reference to the Castlevania series' tradition of whips as primary weapons, but is the only weapon in Aria of Sorrow that resembles a whip. Through wielding this power and interacting with other characters, Soma soon comes to realize a shocking revelation: his powers and Dracula's soul are one and the same—Soma is the next incarnation of Dracula himself, and therefore may inherit Castlevania as its new lord and master. This could be further representation of the "Good Dracula" motif the character has been given in Aria of Sorrow.

Soma’s seismic shift of emotions then allows for the self-revival of Dmitrii, whose soul resided in Soma after he was first bested in battle by the former, and he and Celia leave with the declaration that they have gone back to their original plan to simply kill Soma so that Dmitrii can become the new Dark Lord. Like Dracula, he is also in this mode fond of drinking blood out of a wine glass. One of the most notable links between Soma and Dracula, however, occurs in Dawn of Sorrow, during the final battle with him in Julius Mode (which, like the same mode in Aria of Sorrow, puts the player in the role of Julius Belmont, this time fighting against Soma in a what-if scenario, wherein Soma did become the Lord of Darkness). One of these is the supervision of Hindu religious sacrifices. Soma tracks Celia back to her lair, a copy of Dracula's castle, where he defeats two other dark lord candidates, Dmitrii and Dario. HE repeated.

She then summons the Fire Demon Aguni to possess Dario and vastly increases his pyrokinetic powers. In 1476 when Trevor Belmont was on his own quest to hunt out the Count Dracula who had controlled his son to become evil, Alucard would be waiting for Trevor Belmont to come by. Celia disappears with the grim proclamation that Soma will be eliminated by any means necessary, so that she may take his power and revive the Lord of Darkness. Aria of Sorrow Baba Yaga | Alucard, Castlevania 64/Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness Soma witnesses the apparent murder of a captive Mina by Celia, and his anger gives rise to the powers of Chaos (similar to when Lisa was killed, which triggers Dracula to engage a war against humanity).
