Symphony of the Night (And Rondo of Blood, good end)Canon Point:
Post-game, good endAge:
Richter Belmont was born to be a vampire hunter. Literally. It's in the blood. Also
literally. He's been hunting monsters since he was little more than a child, and is often regarded as the strongest Belmont in the history of the family name. Richter has a girlfriend (wife, at this point) named Annette. He saved her from Dracula in his youth, fighting his way through the castle to free her and destroy the evil vampire before he could take another. Later on, his mind was influenced by the dark priest Shaft, believed dead after Richter's first conquest, and he attempted to raise the dark lord once more. He was saved by Alucard, Dracula's son, and Maria, Annette's little sister and a vampire hunter in her own right.Wiki here.Personality:
Richter Belmont is... overly invested in his work, and overly dramatic as well. However, he's a hard worker, and doesn't let anything stop him. Not vampires, not werewolves, not... ok, he's a little susceptible to mind control. He's a big eater, and will eat practically anything, including but not limited to meat found in walls. Richter Belmont is very, very devoted to his loved ones, but not as much as he is to the deliverance of life from evil. He was willing to save his girlfriend, Annette Renard, from Dracula's clutches at great personal danger, but in the bad path, where she is not saved before being turned into a vampire, he kills her, though he is not at all happy to do so. He's saved many people from evil, and believes it to be his calling, and he's not wrong.
Richter is strong, and that defines a lot of him. He's strong in his decisions, his actions, and his words, to the point of being a bit of a ham. More than a bit, really. He's a very firm man, and usually comfortable in his work, and can adjust to any decision he must make.
Richter is a loving man. He risked his life for the sake of the girl he loved. He's also a very self-sacrificing, selfless man, doing what he does for the sake of humanity as a whole, above and beyond what he does for his loved ones. He's somewhat empathetic, as shown when he sees that Maria has feelings for Alucard. He's kind enough to tell her to follow her feelings, too.
All in all, Richter is a genuinely good man. His one weakness, the fear that shaft played upon, is the fear of being useless. He is afraid of having nothing left to conquer, no fight left to fight, and of being forgotten. Richter's greatest sin is pride, knowing that he is the best of the best, but he tries to temper his pride with humility and realism. After all, even the best can die in the field. And secretly, Richter would be more ok with that than with dying of old age.Fears: Weaknesses:
Richter is strong, but only as sturdy as a human, and has little resistance to magic beyond what he's trained for. He is especially susceptible to mental magic. Also, he can't swim at all.Mundane Strengths/Abilities:
Richter is a master of weapons, and a strong runner and jumper. His body is at the peak of fitness. He is very aware of his surroundings from years spent fighting evil monsters, and is thus not easy to surprise: he reacts fast and in control.Sensitivity/Magical Ability:
Richter Belmont can unlock the hidden abilities of weapons, summoning their very essence to fight for him, but not often, because it takes a lot out of him. Examples are using holy water to make holy rain, using a knife to make a barrage of knives fly at his foes, or using a cross to strike at a wide area. These attacks are called Item Crashes. Richter can only perform them after defeating many enemies (collecting many hearts, in video game terms). He will probably never be able to use this in game. Even more importantly, Richter can, as a Belmont, wield the holy weapon Vampire Killer, a chain-whip mounted on a cross. He can even cloak it in flame for single attacks, dramatically increasing its damage power. This he is much more likely to do in game. Supply List:
The holy weapon Vampire Killer. This will probably be confiscated after not very long, but it's coming with him! It's got smiting abilities, range, and can be set aflame by Richter's power, albeit not for long.Game Transfers:

Richter Belmont awakens, a curse (not the magical sort) on his lips as he snaps vertical, realizing he is not in the same place he collapsed. The curse fades as he realizes he is also not alone. Or armed, even though by rights he should be. The man slowly shifts his feet under him, attempting to get his bearings. A hospital? No, there are no signs of sickness, and his wits feel about him, nor are there any sounds that indicate nearby sickness. It seems more like... Servants' quarters, maybe. But there was only one castle nearby, and he watched as that one collapsed. That he could be inside it is simply not possible.
So he must be somewhere else. Perhaps when he collapsed, someone found him and took him here. Maybe it IS a hospital. That would explain the clothes, at least. They're not too unusual, given his home time, but they are certainly not his normal clothes. Moving very slowly and quietly, so as not to wake the others, he goes to investigate the chest at the base of the bed he just moments ago found himself in. As he rummages in the dark, a chain faintly clinks. He freezes, then continues to fumble around, until his hands close on a very familiar haft.
Yes. He has it. Holding his whip, Vampire Killer, aloft, Richter can't help but grin slightly. With this, he feels he can take on anything. Of course, he still jumps at heavy footsteps suddenly outside the door. He just... jumps into a ready position, glaring at the door, as if daring something to come through. When nothing does, he looks around for a candle, and upon finding one, lights it. The cloth in the trunk is blue under the light, and he can't help but grin again. Pulling his normal coat over the serviceable, but drab clothes that he awoke in, Richter Belmont opens the door, Vampire Killer at the ready, prepared to take on the day... or so he thinks.
