Available/Taken stories. Fill the blanks!

So, for storytellers I think it would be great to have a list of the "already taken" stories so there are no mistakes of two different people writing the same story.
Here is a list of the playable characters, just say "this character has already been taken by me" and I will edit this text and put your names next to the character you deal with as well as the percentage of the story that you have completed (more or less). Example:   Shanoa: taken by Serio, 100% complete
It would be great if this main post could be edited by anyone
If this post is not useful we can always delete it, but I thought it could be.

Characters that are already in game:
Richter Belmont: taken by Ryu the Weredragon
Richter Belmont pre- SoTN RyuTheWeredragon
Hanz Belmont: taken by Undead (10% complete)
Alucard: taken by Malphas? 95% complete

Maria Lenard: taken by Lilfut
Maria Lenard (kid):  taken by Lilfut
Trevor Belmont: taken by Morrison
Albus: taken by CyberDragon
Shanoa: taken by CyberDragon
Simon Belmont: taken by CiberDragon/Morrison? 2 promising stories, only 1 will remain.
Jonathan Morris: taken by Fou-Lu
Charlotte Orlean: taken by Fou-Lu
Hugh Baldwin: taken by CyberDragon
Nathan Graves: taken by CyberDragon
Juste Belmont: taken by W0onZa
Maxim Kischine: taken by Flamberge
Soma: taken by Fou-Lu
Julius Belmont: taken by Superscope
Yoko Fernandez: AVAILABLE
Hammer:  FinnishFlame
Reimu Hakurei: taken by  FelixFalora 100% complete
Sakuya Izayoi:  Taken by Superscope 100% complete
Werewolf: taken by IceWolf, 95% complete
Master Skeleton: taken by Malphas, 100% complete
Persephone: taken by Cassie
Axe Armor: taken by nukesheart
Ronald McDonald: (really?! shall we make a story of this guy too?!)
Frog: ThePlotTwist
Duke Nukem: taken by Arrrthritis
Death: taken by Morrison
Stella Ricard: taken by GentlemanAeon
Carrie Fernandez: AVAILABLE
Montano Cyprus: taken by rasgar

Characters that are not yet in the game but that will likely be added:
Dracula: taken by Morrison
Grant Danesti: taken by Malphas, 100% complete
Sypha:  taken by ThePlotTwist
Loretta Ricard: taken by GentlemanAeon
Eric Ricard: taken by Rasgar
Sonia Belmont: Taken by Malphas 100% complete
Kale: taken by rasgar
Rhea: taken by rasgar
James: taken by rasgar
Slogra and Gaibon: AVAILABLE
Hagane: AVAILABLE
Leon Belmont: taken by ThePlotTwist
Hector: taken by FelixFalora
Kokoro Belmont: Taken by Rasgar ??% completed

Not sure if they will be added, but I put those too:
John Morris: taken by Somacryz1998
Soleiyu Belmont: taken by Lilfut
Desmond Belmont: taken by Lilfut
Getsu Fuuma: taken by Lilfut
Germain: AVAILABLE
Aeon: taken by Fou-Lu (but open to ideas for the story)
Gabriel Belmont:  taken by Zetheraxza? 0% completed
Cornell: taken by RyuTheWeredragon

I hope I didn't miss any character.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Even if this thread works, it will be incomplete for some time, so don't rush and try to say "MINEMINEMINEIWANTTHISCHARACTEROHMYGODYESH!" because this board has not the information it needs to work yet, but that does not mean the stories are not taken.
I now realise that I should have read more carefully my own post instead of doing LOTS of small edits in so little time (my bad) while I'm not sure if that is a bad thing but I will try not to spam so much from now on, lol.
FINALLY a small tip for writers: The Castlevania Wiki provides extra background information of the characters and it will help you to create the story and to figure out what the motto of your chosen character could be.

I think a good idea would be to also have completion percentages, as much as is possible. Hopefully the mods will help you update the post accordingly like they did with my soundtrack post.

Anyhow, I've finished my story for Montano (I think I have full approval for it), and if they are going to be in the game I will also be writing stories for Royce, Kale, James, and Rhea.

The only other ones I'm pretty sure of are that CyberDragon is in charge of Nathan and Hugh and Fou-Lu (I think?) is in charge of Charlotte and Jonathan.

Thanks! Added the percentages now (the few I knew, lol) Also: yes, I "inspired" on the sountrack post (which is very useful thread and developed pretty smoothly)

I'm of the mind to take Soma as well since I want to see a story written about his struggle with the inevitable mentioned in the ending of DOS.  If no one else intends to do that I'll take it as I'm likely to just not approve anything not as deep as that concept anyways. ;p

Whenever I have the necessary materials to create an Aeon for this game I will be taking his story as well.  Additionally if anyone have the intent to use Aeon in your own stories I think I understand him more or less and would be fine with helping them with that personification.

I believe his name was Roberto. I don't know if there were any plans for him though. (But I don't think there were.)

Yeah, Roberto. Thats a shame, I believe he's the only one to ever wield an Old Rifle and perform 3-fangs-like kicks lol. I even requested a blue costume for Hanz in order to have at least an alternate costume in his memory.

Even if that is the case, isn't the rifle just an idea from someone else's fangame?

Touché. If somehow he manages to get a spot in the game, we would have to check with the CVX author or draw new sprites for him.

THE WEREWOLF THISCHARACTEROHMYGODYESH... I mean, I'm working on the werewolf. More or less 30% done. If nobody wants Juste or Maxim, I'll give it a try, but for the moment WW is enough. I got important exams from june 18 to 22, so if you want them, go ahead.

If there are not taken, I would also like to take those as well (as long as they are not taken, not wanted by anyone and it's ok if I take so many)
Alucard:
Shanoa:
Grant Danesti:
Master Skeleton
I recall something about Grant and Master skeleton being taken, but I can't remember exactly who did it. In the old board I made a story of Alucard, but I don't remember if it was accepted, rejected or if some of the concepts were considered by whoever will be writing Al. (I don't like it much, though, if I were to make it I would have to make a more serious plot)
Also, someone came up with a wonderful idea in which the Master skeleton is made of Sypha, Grant and Trevor's parts all in one. I don't remember who it was or if he/she would take skeleton's story but the idea is promising.
Also, added the rest of the info!

For what it's worth,  I combed through the topic on the textboard and did my best to list everyone who was claimed. Granted, I don't know how many of these people were approved, or how many of them are even still around... someone more informed than me will have to step in, I think.

I forget, are you 111, Malphas?

Richter: Ryu the Weredragon
Sisters: GentlemanAeon
Dracula: Morrison
Soma: RavenFinsternis
Werewolf: RavenFinsternis, or 111
Shanoa: CyberDragon
Skeleton: 111
Axe armor: nukesheart
Julius: nukesheart, or Anonymous (I have no idea who it is)
Death: Morrison
Alucard: Same Anonymous as Julius
Hammer: 111
Sonia: 111
Albus: CyberDragon
Simon: Morrison
Trevor: Morrison
Reimu: Felix

Not to sound like a jerk but I rejected most of what was written on the old text board on the grounds of being plot lines pulled out of someone ass (common in mainstream anime) or stuff like the "power of friendship" let us beat Dracula.  Which is basically within a slightly worse concept I like to call "4kids anime".

About Soma as I said I likely rejected it, the only story we need for Soma is one that explores his belief that maybe he has no choice but to become the Dark Lord himself to rebalanced the scales.  I'd really question what other point is worth exploring then that?

I'm aware that the majority of them were rejected. I know how seriously the team is taking the story component of this game, so it makes sense that you'd do that (and I feel the same way). I read as much while going through the old board, anyways. I vaguely remember having a conversation earlier with Morrison... I think... I can't remember when, that maybe some of the rejected stories could still be reworked as something usable, with some credit still being given to the original author. All the same, I figured I might as well list everything, even those that were probably rejected, before people started going nuts with claiming characters.

Not only 111, but also the anonymous who wrote the stories for Julius and Alucard. Still, if I were to take them then I would have to rewrite most of them in order to create a more solid plot.
Also, I added most of the names of the old textboard, but I'm not sure if those who claimed the stories are still with us.
If you find any mistake or any author who was rejected, let me know and I will correct it.
