Day Fourteen: Trevor Belmont
I’m going with the Belmont from the Netflix animated series instead of the video games. This same apathetic character, who lost purpose after being excommunicated from the Church. He wanders around, drinking where he goes and being able to defend himself when he gets into a preventable situation. There’s one thing he and Dracula have in common: “for evil bastards to win power, all ordinary people have to do is stand aside and keep quiet.” The Belmont family hunted monsters until the Christchurch destroyed his family. Then they
killed Dracula’s lover. A corrupt church causing more problems in the name of the Holy Spirit.
He never had a true childhood with his family. They were killed as he and his knowledge were left wandering. Little does anyone really understand his true protective attitude. He fears not being able to fulfill his purpose of protecting Wallachia.he makes his assumptions about who he considers enemies, but comes is able to come to an understanding of those he faces. This happened in the fight against Alucard. He hated him until he realized he’s an individual half-vampire with motivations that coincide with his.
I love Trevor’s attitude toward his allies and his bitter allies. He holds disdain based off family beliefs, but will work with what he has, protecting those around him. He is also sympathetic, especially to people like the Speakers, who fear not fulfilling their purpose as opposed to dying. I love the writer Warren Ellis for writing this series and creating an amazing character. It didn’t take me long to love Trevor. He was raised alone, not knowing how to fulfill his purpose. Though when he sees a situation he can influence, he uses his knowledge for the best outcome.
