Castlevania - Lady of Anguish by IgnusDei Castlevania - Lady of Anguish by IgnusDei
The next entry in the Lords of Shadow continuity will feature the Lost Belmont, Sonia!...or so I dream. :p

EDIT: Fixed the skin tone, tweaked the face...and with a higher resolution :)

Here's her biography, such as it is now:

Sonia Fahrenheit-Belmont:

Born in Wygal on the year of our Lord 1412 after her twin brother Adrian, to one Elizabeth Fahrenheit and begat by the Prince of Darkness known as Dracula, formerly Gabriel Belmont of the Brotherhood of light. Though procreation between a mortal and the undead should be impossible, Elizabeth was a master alchemist, and performed unnatural experiments upon her person to give the fallen Brother a family. Dracula, however, vanished to parts unknown, and would never know of the experiment. In 1426, Elizabeth was found guilty of Witchcraft by Inquisitor Pius and sentenced to be burned at the stake. Adrian and Sonia escaped, moving from village to village in Europe for three years until Sonia decided to settle down with a farmer named Mischa Totoyan. Adrian, meanwhile, had a strong wanderlust and would not stay. Sonia would spend the next ten years in domestic bliss, giving birth to a daughter she would name Pascha. Pius, however, had not given up the chase, and eventually captured her and her family.

He declared them all heretics, Sonia being an Abomination, Pascha for being the spawn of one, and Mischa for begetting one. To ensure their passage into hell without a chance for Purgatory, Pius branded their backs with the Mark of Judgment, and sentenced them to be burned. Pascha's pyre was the first to be lit, then Mischa's. Before Sonia could join them, A member from the Brotherhood of light known as Zobek, interfered on her behalf. Invoking a right of conscription, he drafted Sonia within the brotherhood, although he was obligated by church law to bind her with Dominus Sigils by carving them onto her skin. Pius pushed further, forcing silver shards in her abdomen to ensure she would never again be able to give birth...

Zobek promised Sonia that after thirty years of service to the brotherhood, he would undo the Sigils. However, after losing everything that mattered to her, she no longer really cared. Five years later, Sonia would hear murmurs of the return of the Prince of Darkness...and of his son. Believing this son to be none other than Adrian, she sets out to find him.

Sonia has been granted the Phantom Killer, the "soul" of the original Vampire Killer after it was torn in half in a disastrous attempt by Gabriel to combine his Light and Dark Talismans within it. While it constantly burns with eldritch energy, it otherwise matches the original Vampire Killer in functionality...with one exception: the "chain" is a tongue of manafire, and It can be shaped by the wielder's will into a blade of any size. While the Phantom Killer is the bane of life, its counterpart the World Killer is no less lethal, capable of sundering stone and steel while rendering its wielder invincible...

It would be awesome if they had Sonia Belmont in the game. My prediction will be that the next part of the game after Mirror of fate will be Richter Belmont because the only other Belmont to help Alucard was Richter, and also since the game is also in the future we might see John Morris, Julies Belmont and hell we might even get Soma to some degree where they might change it that Satan will be the vessel for Soma instead of Dracula. lol be nice at least.

Wouldn't Soma be the vessel for Lucifer? Think you got it backwards.

I think the Lords of Shadow series is a bit too focused on Gabriel. The original series was about the Belmonts as a whole, or their off-shoots. It didn't matter which character it was specifically. Lords of Shadow it just all seems to be about Gabriel. Even Mirror of Fate still seems to be more about Gabriel and less about the Belmonts. And then Lords of Shadow 2 will go back to him again.

I don't want to keep going to Gabriel. Gabriel should be left as Dracula.

After they hinted at Alucard in the new game, I'd be fine with him taking a backseat to Sonia! And it could tie things nicely with a shout out to Legends. And she's a redhead to boot! Something about redheads just says "Badass". A piece worthy of the Belmont name!

Well, they could tweak the LoS timeline a bit and say that she's Simon's daughter. But this rendition of her... it looks like the artist mashed together both Sonia's and Shanoa's story! o.o
Still epic, though.

HAHA! Excellent work! i'm loving this.

Lords of Shadow was also well orchestrated, though it would've been perfect if they didn't alter the original story's details.

- Gabriel took the (Legendary) name of Belmont due to his love of.. mountains?
- Vampire Killer was the whip's name because there was a stake attached...?
- Dracula was nowhere to be found.. he's probably on the street now looking for a job.

First-time players wouldn't give a say about the details but its a hard blow to hardcore fans of the series. y can't Iga get it right?!

oh, they can. See, Gabriel isn't actually Dracula (the son of the Dragon), but Dracul (The Dragon). They could easily write a story about how Gabriel and his progeny have to bring down one of his wayward children.

It looks very nice, although I don't like her eyes at all. they seem very flat and uninteresting. the shape doesn't seem natural.

I'd have to agree, everything is pretty good, but the eyes look like old-school little green man, alien eyes. Just skinnier
