It's funny how people don't even remember LoS has a Sypha too :P

Alucard, without a doubt (huge fangirl for about the last 15 years, it was he who was my introducion to Castlevania).  Then again, if I look at LoS, Alucard is a Belmont, so for the purposes of favourite non-Belmont, I'll just consider the original timeline Allie.  After him, I'm also a big fan of Soma and Joachim, who I'd have loved to have seen a return of.  For background small but very important characters, I think that Lisa is a very powerful character in her own right.

If nonplayables count I fucking love Rinaldo. Shopkeepers of the series were always just conveniently there and one dimensional (especially in HOD... like what was he doing there XD) but Rinaldo had a story and reason to be there. He even had stuff to do in the plot, like making the Vampire Killer what it is. You could sympathize with him and he was a really chill guy, voiced by the awesome Michael Mconahie. The music for his cabin is also just... so chill. The combination of all these things made Rinaldo way cooler and more memorable than other side characters.

For shopkeepers I would go for AoS Hammer for his badassness. Otherwise Master Librarian.

I like Hammer as a shopkeeper too. Especially when he starts blushing/chasing after Yoko.

Well, Hammer across the Sorrow series (2 games and that novel).

I love Yoko as a character.  While she's not my favourite non-Belmont character, she is right up there on the list of great characters for me.  Hammer's chasing of Yoko is amusing.  I've always seen her as more the sort to have at least at some point crushed on Alucard.  I wouldn't be surprised if Yoko teases him as much as she does Soma.

I kinda like Yoko (actually more then Sypha but not as much as SotN Maria) in DoS. Few thing DoS actually did better (becuase what Yoko do in AoS is talk a little and get stabbed).

Oh yeah, a bit of trivia. In Japanese DoS manual, in the character profile page, at first page, you would expect Soma/Arikado/Julius or Celia, (considering Mina's role gradually shrank from AoS as a save point and good-as-noting with the internet but still hint giver to barely appear but to give such cliche plot twist at the gardens) but no. Soma/Mina/Yoko. Don't know why they left Celia at second page, cuz that will be "Better".

The amusement to me is more that Hammer just seems so utterly clueless at just how little chance he has with Yoko, and the way that she brushes him off.  Yeah, he really should get the hint, but it's Hammer, he's not exactly subtle.

I have too many favorites. But I'll speak of one: Death.

Death is written in such a way that makes his villany so charismatic. I love how matter-of-factly he is and how he doesn't leave room for dubiousness. And of course, the fact he's willing to go to very far lengths to see Dracula revived. If Death were a real person, he'd be Castlevania's #1 fanboy.

It's a shame we don't get to see more of Dracula's interaction with Death. I wonder what their conversations are like.
