Is Alucard Really in Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2?

Is that really Alucard in the Lords of Shadow 2 Trailer? I don't really think so. I think its Hector.


Is Alucard Really in Lords of Shadow 2? After watching Lords of Shadow 2's Debut Trailer for the game my knee-jerk reaction to the white haired sword wielding character at the end was the same as everyone else'. 'HOLY SHIT IT'S ALUCARD!' But, on second thought, was that REALLY him?

Konami Pre-E3 Show - Castlevania Lords of Shadows 2

After looking back back and thinking about it some more, I really don't think it is. I'm pretty sure that the white haired character in the trailer is actually Hector... due to him summoning the Giant Clockwork Golem. One of his main abilities was summoning monsters like Golems as familiars to fight for him. Hector was originally a Devil Forge Master & one of Dracula's most trusted Generals. However he, he became fed up with killing and deserted, betraying Dracula. However the Clockwork Golem isn't the only similarity. There are others.

Compare the portraits & note the similarities:

If you look closely you will see that he has the same Bracer/gauntlet on the same arm. Also barely visible is the same or similar dragon wing pattern on his overcoat's chest. Also if you look at the reflection in the sword you can see his eye's. They are Blue Green like Hectors

One other problem with the Alucard theory is this. That would make Trevor Alucard, as Trevor is Gabriel/Draculas's only son, in the Lords of Shadow Continuity. However Trevor is ALREADY confirmed, in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, as being  human. He is NOT half vampire like Alucard is. He was conceived and birthed in secret before Gabriel was turned. This all happened without Gabriel's knowledge and was kept secret from him by The Brotherhood, presumably while he away on a mission. It is for these reasons that I believe that it is NOT Alucard in the trailer but actually Hector instead.
