Darkstalkers (1994)

Voice Actor:

Crispin Freeman


Jon was born to a human mother and werewolf father. His mother died shortly after giving birth to him, and Jon had no contact with his father. Although he was alone, he had lived a peaceful life as a human. Then, one full-moon night, the beast within him awoke and he turned into a werewolf. The transformation caused him to be shunned from human society. Though shocked by discovering he was a Darkstalker, Talbain harboured no animosity towards his parents, whom had never been a part of his life. Talbain cursed his fate, but was determined not to let the his primal instincts consume him. Following his inner voice, he devoted himself to fighting and pushing himself past his limits, believing that if he retained his inner humanity, he might regain his physical humanity as well.

Know that what you see isn't everything in this world!

There's no past or future, I only live for the fight!

You admit you lost? Did you let me win?

Vs. Self: Crawl back to your pack whelp! I'm the alpha here!

Vs. Morrigan: I know you like to toy with your prey. Not so fun being on the receiving end, now is it?

Vs. Felicia: I guess I can understand your stance of humans. You certainly showed me that not all humans are bad, but ask yourself this…Will the animosity truly end?

Vs. Hsien-Ko: Thank you for going easy on me. At least now I know not all Darkstalker hunters are evil.

Vs. Demitri: I would much rather become human again than serve under someone like you.

Vs. BB Hood: Oh, not you again! I grow tired of these encounters! Look, for the last time, I want to be human!

Vs. Viewtiful Joe and Sakuya: Even if you slowed me down, you won't be able to escape my Beast Rush.

Vs. Jin: You are too arrogant for someone who relies on a mecha.

Vs. Some Youkai Touhou characters: You have strength beyond most races, but you lack the discipline to defeat me.

Vs. Amaterasu: Bless you, Wolf Godess for you are always in my prayers.

Vs. Patchouli: You seem to know a bit of magic. Tell me, will you be able to cure my curse……no? Never mind then.

vs. Meiling: You're most skilled, but I refuse to lose to a fellow inhuman martial artist.

vs. Asura: You leveled the moon during a fight? Huh. I was wondering why I was feeling a little iffy recently.

vs. Remilia and Flandre: Sorry for going so rough. I never really had a good history with vampires.

(Jon Talbain is in a forest in Gensokyo.)

Jon: For a while, I thought that us Darkstalkers would never be able to live among humans…..

(He is seen hanging out with Morrigan, Lilith, Felicia, Sasquatch, Kagerou, Cirno, Wakasagihime and Sekibanki.)

Jon: But now after meeting these new darkstalkers from this world, I’ve finally found it. A place where we Darkstalkers can live with Humans and not be judged for who we are. I think I’m gonna like it here.
