So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

A part-prequel/part-expansion follow-up to the original N64 Castlevania, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness centers around a new werewolf protagonist named Cornell, who was intended to be one of the playable heroes in the first game, but got cut from the roster and was given his own starring role here instead. After completing Cornell's quest, the player gets to unlock truncated versions of Reinhardt's and Carrie's quests from the first game, reworked around the new levels and bosses from this game, but without their voice acting and most of their cutscenes due to space constraints.

Oldrey's Diary Item

Oldrey's Diary normally appears as an unobtainable object in Stage 3 (the Villa), inside the library of the Oldrey Mansion. It can be read, but since it is bolted down, it can't be acquired. Using the GameShark code the Oldrey's Diary item will be placed in the inventory and can be used. Its description is just "Oldrey Diary".
