After briefly appearing in Shadow Hearts taunting his brother Keith, in Shadow Hearts: Covenant you find Joachim as the protector of the French town of Le Havre. Joachim is both a vampire and a trained wrestler who joins the party when he succeeds in defeating the mayor, who has been pestering Granny Lot for her tavern, the Seagull. A while after saving the inn, you meet Joachim's younger sister, Hilda, in her Peach Bat form.


"Trained as a pro-wrestler, this vampire is devoted to justice and has dedicated himself to aiding the weak and defenseless in society."


Joachim is from a vampire family that lives in Blue Castle near Bistriz, Romania. He has a younger brother(Keith) and sister(Hilda) and a grandfather is the grey bat in the third game.

Shadow Hearts: From The New WorldEdit

Joachim makes an apperance as an optional boss where he fights his sister Hildegard one-on-one.

In this fight he wears the "Great Question" mask he inherited from his master. Upon losing he gives this mask to his sister as proof of her victory, which she wears in battle whenever she is in "Curvy form."


Joachim is more the "superhero-type" since he looks heroic and more superheroic while grand papillon.

Fighting StyleEdit

Using powerful bludgeons and his mighty Muscle Arts, Joachim is capable of inflicting massive amounts of damage on his enemies, as well as draining their health to replenish his own.

With an attack boost he is able to equip up to five Hit Areas, along him to deal even more devesating amounts of damage.


He uses several forms to fight in battle, which change depending on his Joachythms. His regular form is most frequently seen; Invisible Form lowers his chance of being targeted; Golden Bat Form greatly raises his physical strength but eliminates his magic abilities, and his super-hero form, Grand Papillon (French for "Great Butterfly"), is a powered-up version of his regular form. Joachim is no doubt the physically-strongest person in the party.
