Sorry for small pictures, but it's what I got to work with. Jenny looks very similar to Medusa to me.
Your mom has had more floppies put in her than a Commodore 64!

Perhaps.. Or perhaps she was influenced by Versace
(click to show/hide)

Much in the same vein that post CViii Alucard looks like Vampire Hunter D x Amon…

I'd say the LoI Medusa was influenced by the original Castlevania's Medusa as she does the exact same thing; head floating around the room while attacking Simon. I think IGA mentioned this in an interview or something. However, Medusa from the original CV (1986) might have been influenced by said Psycho Jenny. I can see the similarities.

I can see it and it wouldn't surprise me given how much Castlevania borrowed from other horror works. I mean, I only recently found out that Maria in Rondo may have been inspired by Little Maria from 1931's Frankenstein.

I can definitely see it too. Shame that it's black and white instead of color so we can't be 100% sure. But the design is all there.

It’s sort of like Medusa, that’s how you stay ahead of snakes…
