Since this is the place for introductions... here I go:
I'm just another fan of this lovely franchise, you can call me Malphas.

Castlevania has always been one of my favorite game series and I enjoyed every game I played, from the NES Castlevania to Order of Ecclesia. The music of those games is just great, and basically the reason why I wanted to learn to compose.

I first played Castlevania NES, many years ago, but I really got addicted to the series when I played Circle of the Moon. Even thought it has been considered non-canon, it's one of the games I most enjoyed (and in my opinion Dracula has one of the coolest final forms ever)

And that is pretty much everything I can say for now. I hope I can be one more of you :D

Hey Malphas! Welcome to the forum! I like your name!

It's not that active right now for some reason... but hopefully you can help with that!

Welcome! ^_^ Nice to meet you!

You're the Double-Jump Soul in Aria of Sorrow! :D

Nah, you're referring to Karasuman.

Malphas is also the Crow Witch's name in Lords of Shadow.

I like Karasuman. He drops the Ring of Feanor (and yes I know the Ring of Varda is vastly superior).

Oh that's right.... I think they used Karusuman's sprite in Dawn of Sorrow and called it Malphas...

Welcome to the forum, Malphas! It's nice too see new people here.
And yes, Malphas is Karasuman's name in DoS and PoR. He's also called Feather Demon in Harmony of Dissonance. I looked a bit into the names' etymology, and apparently Malphas is a demon in crow form that can change into a human. I've got no idea where Karasuman comes from, though. (That's the case with half of SoTN's bestiary, actually. )
My favourite color is punching things in the face.

As far as I know, for Karasuman: "Karasu": crow (japanese); and "man", well...

Well that makes wonderful sense. I suppose they changed the name in the DS titles to sound more... Americanized?
