The Lost Child of Desire rounds out the playable cast in The Nostalgic Gamer’s latest entry!
After covering Jedah Dohma recently, The Nostalgic Gamer turns his attention to the final member of the 18 character playable cast: Lilith Aensland.
The last of the four New Challengers introduced in Vampire Savior, Lilith was originally conceived as an angel character by the name of Genevieve, but was changed to be a hermaphroditic succubus, as the team felt the angel character archetype was becoming overdone in video games at the time.
Given that she is technically part of Morrigan, many of her attacks and mannerisms are the exact opposite of her sister, potentially harkening back to the aforementioned angelic motif. Around 10 years after a portion of Morrigan’s soul was sealed away by Belial, it began to develop a consciousness of its own, as feelings, desires and an individual identity began to slowly emerge over 300 years. After this soul was drawn into the Majigen, Jedah struck a deal to give it a physical body, in exchange for it luring Morrigan and other Darkstalkers into his newly-created dimension, and thus Lilith was born.
Though Dohma always planned to use both Aensland sisters to merely increase his own power. After sensing Morrigan and learning of the Shinigami’s deception, Lilith’s ultimate fate is portrayed as her either merging with Morrigan into a single being in her sister’s Arcade ending, or tragically fading away in her own, unable to reach Morrigan in time.
Despite only being playable in Vampire Savior, The Nostalgic Gamer notes that Lilith has made cameos in a wide variety of crossover titles, most recently as a Crossover Costume for Juri Han in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, and closes the video with a bit of trivia concerning her voice actresses. You can see the full video below.
Thus, we seemingly arrive at the end of TNG’s “Meet The Darkstalkers” series, as the entire playable cast has now been covered. Though it is unknown if he will be making episodes about Hidden Characters like Shadow and Marionette.
Do you have fond memories of Lilith? Now that they’ve all been introduced, which Darkstalker is your personal favorite? Tell us in the comments.
