You'd be a fool to underestimate me! My pockets are full of friends and I won't hesitate to use them!

Shanoa is an NPC introduced in the Return to Castlevania DLC.

She replaces the Collector in Passages between each two biomes for the Return to Castlevania DLC biomes.


  • "Welcome, stranger. I am Shanoa."
  • "I'm a master of Glyph magic."
  • "Alchemy is not really my strong suit, but I still might be able to help you make something of those cells you carry."
  • "Greetings, friend of the Order."
  • "Our sole purpose is to destroy Dracula so people can look to dawn without fearing the darkness."
  • "My specialty is glyphs rather than alchemy but I should be able to help nonetheless."
  • "Are you the morning sun, come to vanquish this horrible night?"


  • Shanoa is the protagonist of Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia.
  • In her home series, Shanoa is a powerful practitioner of glyph magic, using arcane symbols on her arms and back to channel magical energy into various offensive and defensive forms. Several glyphs can be seen in her variant of the Passages; some are usable in Order of Ecclesia, and others have unique designs that relate to mechanics in Dead Cells.
    • The banners on either side of the entrance depict Dominus Agony, one of the three components of Dominus, a glyph spell designed to destroy Dracula at the cost of its caster's life.
    • From left to right, the large glyphs in Shanoa's room are Melio Scutum, a high-level shield; an unknown glyph depicting a cell; Acerbatus, a large ball of thunder and darkness; and Torpor, a short-range ice spell that can freeze enemies.
    • The Health Fountain is marked with a glyph that closely resembles Fides Fio, a support glyph that boosts Shanoa's resistance to magic attacks.


  • 3.3: Introduced.
