The creators of Resident Evil Village told about the origins of Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters

The creators of Resident Evil Village showed concept art to Lady Dimitrescu and talked about the process of creating the heroine and her daughters. According to the projects art director Tomonori Takano, the authors from the beginning wanted to create a character that would make a strong impression on players — although they did not expect the Internet to accept At first, the developers took Mias model from the seventh part, wearing her in a dress and hat – so they tried to endow the image with ghostly features. However, the result turned out to be unsatisfactory, so the model was increased in size.

After there was a concept with a heroine that leans in order to pass in the door, the creators felt like groping the right direction. Then began the development of the design of the castle and the appearance of the heroine – at first she wanted to give less human features, but the idea with a tall woman seemed enough to them.

In Dimitrescus development, designers were inspired by the style of the 60s, actress Audrey Hepburn and the Addams Family. By the way, Dimitrescus shoe size is 44 centimeters.

As a basis they took real shoes, and then increased their model. In addition, according to the original idea, only women were supposed to live in the castle – about a hundred witches, and for the most part naked.

However, the idea proved difficult to implement, so it was partially abandoned, although only female enemies were left in lock — because they use men to drink blood, and then leave the bodies behind the gate. The very idea of a location with a village also appeared in the early stages of development — the authors first thought about which characters live in a particular location, starting from this in the design.

Partly so worked on Resident Evil 4. In addition, the authors revealed a few details about Dimitrescus daughters: Bella is the oldest and quietest, while the prudent Cassandra is a sadist, enjoying the murders Younger, Daniela – crazy and detached from reality.

They, sort, reflect the idea of a family that Ethan himself has – a wife and a child. At the same time, according to According to the creators, Lady Dimitrescu and her daughters are not the only big opponents in the game.
