Humans are inferior organisms...

Hunter's Files introduction[src]

Guillaume (ギヨーム Giyōmu?), also referred to as the Genius, was a former scientist who later became a vampire serving under Auguste. He is an antagonist and the second boss of Vampire Night, a 2000 spiritual successor to the House of the Dead series.

Exiled from society due to his inhumane experiments, Guillaume developed a hatred towards humanity. When Auguste was threatened by vampire hunters Michel and Albert, Guillaume attempted to stop them. He was ultimately killed after a battle on the castle rooftops.

Guillaume has pyrokinetic powers and can transform into a winged vampire. His weak point is his entire body.

History

This former scientist was infamous for using people for his cruel experiments. He was exiled from human society when his experiments were exposed. His anger and desire for revenge against humankind increased after he became a vampire.

Hunter's Files entry[src]

Guillaume was a demented scientist who had conducted human experimentation in secret. After his cruel experiments were exposed, Guillaume was banished from his homeland. Anger filled the mad scientist's mind and he swore revenge against humankind. Guillaume was eventually recruited by the vampire Count Auguste, thus becoming a full-fledged vampire himself. Using his newfound knowledge on vampires, Guillaume conducted experiments to create more powerful monstrosities for his master's army.

After Bathe'lemy's defeat, Guillaume was the next to confront the vampire hunters. He sneaks behind the hunters and takes Caroline as his hostage, forcing the hunters to pursue him all the while sending his minions to fight the hunters. After a long chase, Guillaume finally confronts the hunters on the rooftops, transforming into his true form. After he is defeated, Guillaume reverts back to his human form, and not bearing to accept defeat, he commits suicide by jumping from a cliff while laughing maniacally.

He has a strained relationship with fellow vampire Rauoul, evident when Diane infromed him of Guillaume's death and Rauoul told her that he deserved it.

Skills and abilities

In addition to his great agility, Guillaume's vampiric power has given him pyrokinesis, the ability to create and control fireballs.

True form

In his true form, Guillaume transforms into a gargoyle-like creature, possessing a pair of large wings that enable him to fly freely. Tubes throughout his body supply energy from his inner core to the laser emitter, attached like a monocle over his right eye, that was able to project a powerful cutting beam. However, he has difficulty aiming due to the recoil produced by the large energy burst of the weapon. Guillaume's weak point is his entire body as he has no other form of protection other than his ability to fly rapidly.
