Simon Belmont
1691 - Haunted Castle
1691 - Vampire Killer
1691 - Castlevania
1691 - Super Castlevania 4
1691 - Castlevania Chronicles
1698 - Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest
Simon is the character featured in the most Castlevania games. His adventures began when the residents of Transylvania sought the current Belmont to fight Dracula. Later he had to rid himself of a curse put upon him by Dracula, and then had to fight Drac yet again, because he wasn't quite dead. Probably the most prominent and recognized of the Belmonts.

His uniform is brown (CV1), red (Vampire Killer, Castlevania 2) or blueish (Castlevania 2). Nobody quite knows his hair has been seen to be blond, brown, black or pink, depending on the game.

Richter Belmont
1792 - Dracula X: Rondo of Blood
1792 - Castlevania: Dracula X
1797 - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
1944 - Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Richter is most likely the grandson of Solieyu Belmont, captured in Belmont's Revenge. Hero of both Dracula X's (and also an enemy in Symphony of the Night), Richter had to fight his way through yet another wave of Dracula's baddies to save his girlfriend Annette, and her sister, Maria. In Symphony of the Night, Richter mysteriously dissappears, and nobody is quite sure why. He may have been kidnapped by minions of Dracula, to work for him. Richter has a very cool backflip ability which gets him out of sticky situations.

Richter wears a stylish headband and a cool blue uniform. In 'Symphony of the Night', he wears his hair quite a bit longer and looks more like an 18th century warrior than before. He also gains a few new abilities, most noticeable a dash, a slide attack, a super jump and an uppercut. He makes a guest appearance in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.

Trevor Belmont
1476 - Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse
1479 - Castlevania: Curse of Darkness
When the town of Warakiya fell under attack from the evil Count Dracula, the people found a surviving Belmont, who was Trevor (the Belmonts had previously been exiled from the country, because of the populace's fear of the Belmont's extreme powers.) Although he is not widely as known as his grandson Simon, he is still well recognized. He wears a similar outfit to Simon, although wears a cape when not fighting vampires. For whatever reason, Trevor is named Ralph in Japan.

After defeating Dracula, Trevor remains in the area to fight off the remnants of Dracula's minions. He runs into Hector, a former Devil Forgemaster, and mistakes him for an enemy. They clash several times, but Trevor eventually relents and realizes that Hector's goal is the same as his.

Christopher Belmont
1576 - Castlevania Adventure
1591 - Castlevania: Belmont's Revenge
Christopher Belmont made his appearances in the two Castlevania games for the Gameboy. There's not really a whole lot to say about this Belmont, except for the fact that he's yet another one of the family that killed Dracula when he arose again. He also saved his son Solieyu from Dracula when he was kidnapped in Belmont's Revenge. Christopher is most likely the great-grandfather of Simon. For some reason, he was the star of the Castlevania comic book.

Sonia Belmont
1450 - Castlevania Legends
Originally, Sonia Belmont was meant to be the first member of the Belmonts to fight Dracula. Taking him on in Castlevania Legends for the Gameboy, she wields an upgradeable flame whip just like Christopher. Sonia has blond hair which is usually tied back into a pony tail, and wears a light armor. It is uncertain whether Sonia is the mother or sister of Trevor Belmont. Although she does not wield any of the traditional Castlevania weapons, she has a variety of soul powers, as well as a "Burning Mode", which makes her invincible to damage. Alas, she was retconned by Koji Igarashi, and is no longer part of the Castlevania canon.

Juste Belmont
1748 - Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance
The grandson of Simon, Juste (pronounced Joost) is sent into the castle once again to save his friends Maxim and Lydie from Dracula. Apparently having inherited some of the magic abilities from his ancestor Sypha, Juste can combine his special weapons with magic spells, in addition to the traditional whip. His name is actually French in origin.

Julius Belmont
2035 - Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
2036 - Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Found wandering throughout the castle, Julius Belmont (who calls himself J) was one of the vampire hunters who sealed away Dracula's castle in 1999. Unfortunately, this incident has left him bereft of his memory. Only by exploring the castle can he hope to restore his mind and discover his true purpose. He can be unlocked as a playable character after beating the game, and has access to the usual selection of Castlevania special weapons. He also has a special "warp" manuever that lets him quickly dash behind opponents to surprise them.

Leon Belmont
1094 - Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
A noble knight in 11th century Europe, Leon's dear lady Sara is wisked away by the vampire Walter. Headstrong, he enters the castle grounds unarmed, and is given a whip by the old man Rinaldo, who inhabits the premises. Using this and his magic gauntlet, he enters the castle, in hope to find his fiancee.
