Maria R - Let's Fight Osca by ValeforHo Maria R - Let's Fight Osca by ValeforHo
Maria Renard

After Dracula was defeated, Maria was adopted into the Belmont household. She looked up to Richter as an older brother. At some point, Maria had a new pet barn owl named Osca which would take the place of her doves. Maria would have a hard time being a young kid growing up around well endowed mature village women such as those she helped rescue and she became dissatisfied with her own lack of development.

According to Castlevania: Judgment, at the age of 15, Maria sensed a strange unease among her animal friends. Beneath the light of a full moon, she ventured out into a dark forest seeking answers. She had entered a time rift and was greeted by a strange man who introduced himself as Aeon. He explained that this realm was a place where she would find what she desired, but that there would be trials for her to pass. She was delighted at the prospect of receiving a present, so she gladly accepted the trials. Perhaps this could cure her self-image problems?

She would fight several warriors from other time periods, including Shanoa, who made the mistake of referring to her as a little girl, Sypha, who didn't seem to appreciate the two "sacred gifts" that she had been endowed with, and Carmilla, who was a vampire who naturally had to be destroyed, but who was also irritatingly "bigger" than her. When she returned from the time rift, time would bring her what she desired. However, she soon found that her faith in appearances would fade like a dream.


Team Lead by Kuni.

:wow: Great work on the staff. The cosplayer's done an amazing job on her costume as well. :D

I haven't ever played much attention to the Castlevania series (which is wierd, since I'm a massive fan of the Metroid series) but the E3 coverage of the new games has me quite excited. :XD:

I stop playing castlevania series long ago. I was attracted by the illustration before the game released. Is from the same artist as deathnote.

NO wonder Maria.R has a split image of my the other fav char Misa.
