Kain and Umah-Alternate Ending by 3D-Fantasy-Art Kain and Umah-Alternate Ending by 3D-Fantasy-Art
I was watching some of the Blood Omen 2 FMVs recently, and I ended up watching the one where Umah steals the Nexus stone from Kain in the mistaken belief that she can defeat the Sarafan Lord herself.

I always thought she was crazy for doing it - she had to know it wasn't going to end well (I mean, she couldn't even get past the guards...). Now, see, if I'd been in her shoes, this is how it would've gone:

Umah:
...I shall be the one to find and kill the Sarafan Lord, and Nosgoth shall belong to the vampires once again.

Kain:
You fool. You have not the smallest chance of surviving such a battle.
Now, give me the Nexus Stone, or I shall pry it from your thieving fingers as you convulse in death.

Umah:
Hey, no need for that, big guy. I was only messing! Here you go *big grin*

And then everything would've worked out just peachy :)

Silly girl...

Thanks to ~krazzydragon33 for pointing me at screenshots of the Nexus stone (and oh so much more!). The angle I used eventually doesn't show the stone very well, unfortunately, but at least the model's mostly accurate!

Very good idea. Definitely a better ending, and well made too. A bit of romance is so nice.

Interestingly enough, there was a longer (obviously unused) version of the ending in the game files. In it, Kain was somewhat more active in his lamentation of Umah's death. There really had been something romantic, or at least the potential for something to have developed. Then she had to go and piss him off. >_>

Some of the people that worked on the game implied that he still thinks of her well into the Soul Reaver era. Looks like she's included in that "mountain of regret" he mentions having during a confrontation with Raziel.

love! I just finished playing LoK Defiance and I love Kain's character, which is funny as I wasn't a huge fan of him in the beginning. Maybe that's because I never had the chance to play the Blood Omen games.

The reason she took the nexus stone was because she was concerned with what would happen if Kain did kill the Sarafan Lord(A.K.A Hylden) and recovered the Soul Reavor. And his answer was he would rule all of Nosgoth and said the resistance was free to do as they wish. The big question is how Kain's rule would differ from the Sarafan's.

I want to thank you for giving me some inspiration. I currently am working on a 3d render of Kain fighting Edward Cullen... Just to say that Kain is a real Vampire. I always thought Kain and Umah Should have hooked up

I'm sure his disgust would be similar to my own if this ending were to be. Surely it would kill the game if it ended this way.. leave Kain as he were, the *cold* blooded vampire whom doesn't let his trust carelessly slip so easily. I'm glad she died at his hand, regardless of gender, meddling and puppy love stood no place with Kain. Leave the romance to Twilight, me thinks. With admiration there is always a critic. All the slight bitterness aside, I do like the old feel of this, reminds me of old Blood Omen scenes... just, you know, less like 3d PS1 mutants.

Oh absolutely - don't get me wrong, one of the reasons Kain is in my top 5 bad guys of all time is the fact that he was a heartless self-serving (albeit focused!) bastard. I wouldn't have wanted the game to end this way either - his treatment Umah after her betrayal was a defining moment in his character development - this pic was just a bit of fun. ;)

Kain was my favorite. But until the last year i only played Soulreaver, Soulreaver 2 and LoK Defiance.
As I seen Videos of Umah's i changed my opinion.
Kain is a ...... .
Why he had done this.
How could he.

If i had the choice i would save Umah.

Don t think wrong about me. I know it's only a game. But How.........

LOL! How could he? I think 'cause he's just utterly evil. ;) It was a pretty mean thing to do, but it was a great piece of character development. :)

And also it must had happen, because of Blood Omen 2 is a alternative Timeline, created of Raziel and Kain in Soul reaver 2.

If Umah wasnt killed by Kain the future (throwing Raziel in the Vortex)never was set.

But it is still very cruel.
