You play as Ethan Winters in, however let’s be sincere, he isn’t the actual star of the present. No, social media has bestowed that honor upon Girl Alcina Dimitrescu (pronounced “Dimitreesk”), higher referred to as the tall vampire woman.
This terrifying villain stalks the halls of the sport’s fortress space alongside along with her three spooky daughters, and Girl Dimitrescu is roughly 9 ft, 6 inches tall in her heels and fabulous hat, developer Capcom confirmed. Nonetheless, you is perhaps questioning what her deal is and the way she matches into the general plot.
The sport hits the, and on Friday, however we’ll take a SPOILERY take a look at her backstory right here.
Do not learn any additional if you happen to plan to play the sport and need to keep away from any plot particulars.
A visit to Fort Dimitrescu
Early within the sport, you first see the towering Girl Dimitrescu as she argues with fellow village lord Heisenberg over the destiny of a captive Ethan. Their chief, Mom Miranda, the sport’s principal villain, arms him over to Heisenberg, however the wily Ethan escapes.
Our hero makes his approach to Fort Dimitrescu (the primary of the 4 lords’ territories you discover), the place he is rapidly captured by creepy vampiric daughters Bela, Cassandra and Daniela and introduced earlier than their fashionable mother. She feeds on Ethan’s blood, however would not appear impressed by the style.
They sadistically hold Ethan from the ceiling by stabbing hooks by way of his arms (and it appears so darn painful), however he quickly escapes and wanders the fortress halls.
Varied diary entries reveal that the Dimitrescus have been hiring younger girls from the village to work within the fortress, and the sport’s idea artwork confirms that the ghoulish enemies Ethan fights within the fortress’s dungeon are remodeled girls. Male victims are merely drained of their blood, a few of which is used as the key ingredient within the household’s wine, Sanguis Virginis (which suggests “virgin’s blood” in Latin, so somebody ought to’ve alerted the authorities way back).
Ethan figures out that Bela, Cassandra and Daniela turn into susceptible when uncovered to the chilly, so he smashes a number of the fortress’s home windows to let within the chilly breeze from exterior and kills them one after the other.
Searching for revenge
Girl Dimitrescu is understandably livid on the deaths of her daughters (possibly you should not have been such a bunch of merciless jerks then?) and purses Ethan straight, extending her fingernails into lengthy claws. She slices off our boy’s arm — don’t be concerned, he reattaches it and it really works simply positive due to his therapeutic skills — and follows him across the fortress just like the Tyrant from .
“All the bloodline of Home Dimitrescu is finished in, by the likes of you?” she yells.
Yay, one other scary stalker enemy. (I really love them, Capcom. By no means cease.)
A file reveals the existence of the Dagger of Demise’s Flowers, a weapon solid within the Center Ages and coated with a wide range of poisons from throughout Europe. It was designed to kill demons and monsters… and vampires, I suppose. It appears somebody tried to make use of it in opposition to our magnificent Dimitrescu, and he or she hid it within the fortress so nobody might repeat that stunt.
Ethan in the end finds this Chekhov’s gun in a coffin, and stabs Dimitrescu with it. Phew, she’s lifeless.
Oh wait no, she’s really mutated into a large, terrifying beast to offer us the sport’s first actual boss battle. After a reasonably intense combat, Ethan slays the beast and ends Dimitrescu’s reign of terror for good.
The place did Girl Dimitrescu come from?
A lot later within the sport, a file reveals that huge unhealthy Mom Miranda misplaced her daughter Eva to the Spanish flu, a real-life pandemic that ran from 1918 to 1921 and brought on an estimated 50 million deaths. The grieving mother wandered right into a cave to die and occurred on the Megamycete, the supply of the mould behind the beasties of and Village.
Its regenerative properties granted Miranda immortality, and he or she realized it absorbed the consciousness of people that died — that means it might deliver Eva again to life. She began utilizing villagers as guinea pigs in her quest to search out the proper vessel for Eva’s return, and used the mould to create a yucky parasite known as the Cadou for more-efficient experimentation.
Medical studies on every of 4 lords reveals that they had been implanted with cadou to check their candidacy as vessels for Eva. Most take a look at topics simply changed into pungent, furry lycans, so the 4 lords grew to become village leaders.
The 44-year-old Dimitrescu was a superb host, for the reason that parasite massively elevated her means to heal wounds, which is why Ethan’s assaults had been ineffective earlier than utilizing the dagger.
These regenerative properties additionally elevated her physique measurement, so the web can thank the icky parasite for her spectacular top.
Nonetheless, a hereditary blood illness meant she needed to feast on human flesh and blood commonly to keep up her powers — thus her vampirism. She additionally ran the chance of mutating uncontrollably if her regeneration wasn’t balanced, and the dagger’s poison presumably threw off that steadiness. Ethan, that was simply impolite.
Because of these issues, Miranda deemed Dimitrescu “an unfit vessel for Eva,” however gave her a fortress, three charming daughters and a seemingly infinite provide of victims.
And so they all lived fortunately ever after. Till Ethan killed them.
