Two men and two women stand outside ready for a fight in 'Castlevania: Nocturne.'

Netflix’s New ‘Castlevania’ Series Has the Coolest Cast

The long-awaited sequel to Netflix’s hit adult animated series Castlevania is finally here. Castlevania: Nocturne debuted this week, and it is so much more than I had hoped for. Set about 300 years after the original Castlevania, Nocturne takes place in France during the Revolution. The main heroes are from all over the world, creating an interesting mix of characters and backstories. They all have one thing in common: a desire to end the lives of vampires who wronged them.

Speaking of which, most of the vampires are evil and terrible aristocrats and slave owners. Yet you can’t help but kind of like some of the vampires (I’m looking at you, Olrox). Between the story, gorgeous animation, and talented voice acting, it is hard to pick a favorite character. Keep reading for a guide to the cast and characters of Castlevania: Nocturne.
