Alternate ending sequence:
To see the true ending, obtain three of the souls described in the books
Flame Demon, Succubus, Giant Bat. Then, battle the first Graham equipped
with the three souls. After the two battles, the castle will recognize Soma
as Dracula and will let you continue to battle Chaos in Chaos Realm. To get
there, go to clock tower (with look-alike rooms). Those rooms are like three
floors, and if you go to another room, it looks alike. To go the sealed
door, go room to room by going right. Once you get to a different room with
Rippers and those flying things, go down and find the room sealed with mist.
Julius is inside. After the fight, you will be able to battle Chaos in Chaos
Realm. Defeat it to end the game.
To see the best ending, equip the three souls as described above, then
defeat both Bosses after defeating Graham.
To see the good ending, equip the three souls as described above, then defeat
the first Boss after defeating Graham, but lose to the second Boss.
