— Cassandra

Cassandra Alexandra (カサンドラ・アレクサンドル, Kasandora Arekusandoru; Greek: Κασσάνδρα Αλεξάνδρα) is a character in the Soul series of fighting games. Cassandra made her debut in Soulcalibur II, and has returned in Soulcalibur III, Soulcalibur IV and Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny as a standard character for all four games. The younger sister of Soul Edge character Sophitia, Cassandra's main goal is to relieve her sister from the burden of the Soul Edge and the oracles of the blacksmith god Hephaestus. Cassandra's nickname is The Valiant Princess, because she is strong hearted, determined and willing to save her family.

Cassandra has been mentioned as early as Sophitia's Soul Edge profile, though her name was stated as "Kathandra". She's also briefly mentioned on Sophitia's Soulcalibur profile as well, as she witnessed Taki bringing her unconscious sister home, and goes on a shopping trip when Sophitia meets her future husband, Rothion.

What lies in her soul is Courage.

Biography

Cassandra as seen in Soulcalibur II

Soulcalibur II

It was seven years earlier that Cassandra witnessed a mysterious Asian woman bring Sophitia back and draw out shards of the evil sword out of her sister's flesh while treating her wounds.

Therefore, when Sophitia disappeared again a few years later, Cassandra was certain that her sister had left to contend with Soul Edge once more. One day, after running errands for her family's bakery, Cassandra visited Sophitia's home. There she saw a familiar metal shard. It was undoubtedly a fragment of Soul Edge.

Angered by her sister's panicked reaction to the shard, Cassandra ran to the Hephaestus Shrine.

"Why are you doing this to my sister? How can you claim to be an almighty god? Answer me!" Cassandra screamed.

Her voice reverberated throughout the desolate hallowed grounds. Cassandra collapsed on the floor, worn out from shouting. It was then that she saw the metal fragment resonating with the holy sword blessed by Hephaestus.

She realized then that Soul Edge was still alive. But she could not allow her sister to carry the burden any longer.

Around the time when light began to filter in from the eastern skies, the holy weapon disappeard from the temple.

Soulcalibur III

Cass-soul3art

Cassandra as seen in Soulcalibur III

Determined to destroy Soul Edge on behalf of her sister, Cassandra left her home. In the mountains to the east, she happened upon a city where the residents had lost their minds from the effects of evil energy.

"What's going on?" The fragment she held reacted strongly to this place. Soul Edge was somehow involved in this bizarre phenomenon. She made up her mind to free the city.

"My sister was able to do it… I can, too!" she said to herself. But then something unexpected occurred—cracks appeared in the sword and shield she had taken from the temple of Hephaestus.

Feeling deeply apprehensive, there was nothing Cassandra could do but to flee the city. She felt completely helpless—she may have used her sword and shield a bit roughly, but she couldn't believe that arms made from holy ore could be damaged.

As she gazed at her damaged sword and shield, the image of her sister and her young niece and nephew flashed through the back of her mind. Her sister smiled happily, leading her children by the hand…

"No… I can't give up." Cassandra's eyes shone once again with determination. She returned to Greece to consult with her blacksmith brother-in-law, Rothion. Unexpected news was waiting for her upon her return home, however.

During Cassandra's absence, Sophitia had once again set out on a journey to destroy Soul Edge.

"Damn you, Hephaestus! This is all your fault!" Cassandra cursed to herself, though she didn't consider her sister having regained her previous strong will to be completely bad news.

She had to help her sister. She would stand by her and support her.

After receiving a new sword and shield from Rothion, Cassandra set out with a pure purpose in her heart, with the early dawn’s soft light shining upon her back.

Soulcalibur IV

Cassandra-alexandra-in-soul-calibur-4-jpg

Cassandra as seen in Soulcalibur IV

Cassandra set out once again for the town she has visited before Eastern Europe, hoping to find more clues that would lead her to Soul Edge. But as she hurried through the night, a man appeared before her. His eyes were stained red; she was reminded of the story she had heard about a swordsman who had led the mad townsfolk.

"You have a piece of Soul Edge, don't you? I can feel it," the man said, and in an instant he was upon her. After a hard fight, she was able to finally land a blow on her assailant, but he only sneered at Cassandra and vanished, "So, girl, you can ward off evil, though not as strong as the Holy Stone. Interesting. I'll let you live... for now."

"You're going to run?! You coward!"

A laugh echoed around her. "I already have what I came for." Panicked, Cassandra searched her tunic, but the fragment of the cursed sword was gone.

Unnerved at first, Cassandra pushed those unhelpful feelings down and headed for the town, where she discovered some townsfolk still retained their sanity. In fact, they had been healed—by shining blue crystal. Could it be the Holy Stone the swordsman had mentioned? She set out to learn more, and then a rumor caught her attention: a man carrying a mass of crystal as tall as himself was on his way to Osthreinsburg. If the crystal he bore had the power to smite evil, then that could only mean some evil presence lurked in the ruined castle there. Was it Soul Edge?! Cassandra decided to follow the man to Osthreinsburg and find out.

Cassandra does not know that she's following Soul Calibur, the spirit sword that was made to destroy Soul Edge.

Eventually, she infiltrated the home of the cursed sword, Osthreinsburg Castle. But who stood in her path was none other than Sophitia, who surrendered to the evil sword after her daughter was taken hostage. Cassandra was so shocked, that she was knocked out unconscious from a single strike from her sister. By the time Cassandra woke up, her surroundings were warped into a strange place. With the destruction of Soul Edge, the Astral Chaos that corrupted the castle began to contract quickly. Dragging her injured body along as she looked for Sophitia, she finally found her sister's collapsed body in one of the castle's rooms. Cassandra rushed over there instantly. Just at that moment, a rift to another dimension opened in front of her eyes. ----Several moments later, the castle's surroundings returned to normal, but there was no sign of Cassandra's figure.

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny

(Non-canon)

In the Gauntlet mode, Cassandra helps Hilde in her search for the six items that will help in Professor Ivy's cure for Hilde's father, who has grown ill...

Soulcalibur: Unbreakable Soul

(Non-canon)

In her wanderings inside the Astral Chaos, Cassandra is found by Edge Master. After meeting the player, she sets off a journey with him/her to find the fragments of Soul Edge.

Physical Appearance

Cassandra has short blond hair with bangs either tied up or worn down, pale skin, and bright green eyes. She has a slender frame, allowing her to perform moves, like somersaults and kicks, with ease. In Soul Calibur III, in her 2p costume, she has silver eyes.

Personality

Cassandra is a free-spirited and determined young woman. She will not hold back on her words nor her faith in herself in order to protect the family name and honor. Cassandra's true strength lies in her belief in herself, as opposed to otherwordly deities, in which to secure her choices and destiny. This gives her a unique toughness and single-minded perspective that doesn't lack in compassion. Her brash and confrontational manner are at odds with her apologetic and quieter sister, but she is a warm-hearted girl that cares very much for her family, especially Sophitia. Cassandra has a determined and confident personality, as does her nephew Patroklos, although he seems to be more cocky and aggressive than her.

Soul Calibur 2 - Cassandra's Ending

Soulcalibur II Cassandra's Ending

Soulcalibur II

Wielding weapons once dedicated to Hephaestus, Cassandra vanquished the evil. Her sister's precious sword and shield bore the scars from countless battles. So great was Cassandra's concern about the weapon, she forgot that she destroyed the demonic blade. She need not worry, for surely her sister would be overjoyed with her safe return.


Soulcalibur III

Cassandra leaps into the air, sword in hand, towards Soul Edge. She destroys the cursed sword, but is thrown back by the force released by the cursed sword. Cassandra groans and looks at the spot where Soul Edge was, seeing a rather large, long piece of pointed metal spinning in one place before falling down. Cassandra looks at her sword and gasps, seeing that its blade has broken in half. She crawls up to her broken sword, wondering what to do.

Later, Cassandra returns to the Temple of Hephaestus with her sword, apparently in one piece, sneaking towards its shrine to put it back.

Soul Calibur III Cassandra's Ending B

Input Ending:
Sophitia calls out to Cassandra from behind. Cassandra is unable to place the sword back when she turns around, startled, to Sophitia, hiding the sword behind her back. As, Sophitia expresses how relieved that she's okay,Cassandra leaps from the shrine and cautiously approaches Sophitia, telling her that she's fine. A clank is heard on the ground. Cassandra and Sophitia look down to see the broken piece of the sword, which Cassandra had dropped. Sophitia faces Cassandra, looking most displeased.

Later Cassandra works in a forge (possibly Rothion's), sobbing and hitting the broken sword with a hammer. She holds up the sword, with the broken piece seemingly fixed but then it falls back off. She slumps back and cries, "I don't know how to fix it..."

Soul Calibur III Cassandra's Ending A

No Input Ending:
Cassandra lets out a sigh of relief as she places the sword back when her sister Sophitia calls out to her, startling her. After Sophitia expresses how relieved that she's okay, Cassandra replies that she's fine, but the sword isn't in the best shape. As Sophitia starts to show concern for the sword, Cassandra quickly says that there's no use for them hanging around. Cassandra leaps from the shrine and hastily leads Sophitia away, telling her they should go home,

As they leave, the sword falls down in two pieces behind them.

Soulcalibur IV

Soul Calibur IV Cassandra's Ending(JP)01:32

Soul Calibur IV Cassandra's Ending(JP)

Soul Calibur IV Cassandra's Ending

Algol stumbles back and collapses, defeated, and Soul Edge and Soul Calibur fall to the ground. Cassandra charges towards Soul Calibur, picks it up and runs over to Soul Edge, holding the spirit sword over it. As Algol looks on, Cassandra thrusts Soul Calibur into Soul Edge's eye; a burst of evil energy emanates from the demonic sword, then dies away. Soul Calibur begins to speak to Cassandra, saying, "With this, the evil presence will cease to exist. The perfect world will now be born." Cassandra replies, "The evil presence? Well, there's still one left...right here!" Cassandra grabs Soul Calibur by the hilt and attempts to break it with her bare hands, while everything around them begins to shake. Soul Calibur exclaims, "Foolish girl! Wh-what do you think you are doing? You dare to extinguish the light of humanity just to suit yourself?!" Cassandra answers, "After what you've done to Sophitia, you call yourself the light of humanity? Get serious!" Cassandra inexplicably snaps Soul Calibur in half with her bare hands, and the screen fades to white. Cassandra's voice can be heard, softly saying "Let's go home, Sophitia."
A line of text appears which reads: "She carried out her conviction and protected the bonds of family. There will be peace, as long as that belief remains."

Fighting Style

Cassandra is known for her aggressive fighting style. She can attack when the opponent leaves an opening and place a lot of pressure onto them through her aggressive combos, stuns and throws. She combines speed with strength and both of these attributes are considered the best among other characters, However, her short range may put off some new players who aren't familiar with her style. In the tournaments, she is usually regarded as a high to top-tier character.

Critical Finish

Final Crush: In Cassandra's Critical Finish, she slashes her opponent then playfully knocks them over with her rear. She ridicules her opponent by asking, "You like this kind of stuff?" and then she sits on the opponent's face with clouds of pink hearts appearing. For the fatal hit, she places her shield over her rear before smashing down once more with a pink heart covering part of the screen. She then stands up and exclaims "Ow!".

Stages

Eurydice Shrine Gallery (SCII)

This shrine is built high up a snow-covered that is as beautiful as it is harsh. The scale of this temple is such that it is easy to believe that the Olympian gods once dwelt in this place. Legend says that Hephaestus, the God of fire and forge, built the main shrine on top of the summit. This is evident by the stairway that leads up to the shrine - the enormous steps are impossible for mortals to climb. Humans built this gallery around the giant stairway for their priests' use. In one corner of this meticulously built gallery is the place where a blacksmith couple gave an offering of a sword and shield to Hephaestus. The arms have disappeared from the altar, however. Who could have taken them?

(Note: Cassandra shares this stage with Sophitia.)

Old Toledo - Burning Gallery (SCIII)

After the capital was move to Madrid, Toledo ended its role as the capital of Spain, but it still continues to flourish as a center of activity.

This mansion, standing in the wealthy district of town, belongs to a wealthy merchant who is on a personal quest to pursue the trail of the massacres created by Nightmare. Through extensive independent research, he collected records and reports regarding the incidents, and it is said that he hired a famous artist to draw a portrait of Nightmare based on the information he collected. However, perhaps he had learned too much. The mansion fell to a suspicious fire and now burns fiercely. The voracious flames race to consume everything. It will surely not be long before all is reduced to ash. . .

It is probably no surprise that rumors spread that the fire had been caused by arson. However, mixed in with the rumors were accounts of human figures seen within the flames. These rumors of a man with a scythe (possibly Zasalamel) and a brave swordswoman (possibly Cassandra) who jumped into the flames might perhaps be surprisingly close to the truth.

Thesmophoros' Imperial Garden (SCIV/SC:BD)

Cassandra's Soulcalibur IV stage, in which she shares with Sophitia. This stage is a shrine. It shows some similarities with the Eurydice Shrine (Sophitia's stage in the Soul series), except this one is surrounded with a tropical setting, and the statue of Hephaestus is missing. Also, what appears to be either a mountain or a volcano can be seen at a distance. In Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, Cassandra's variation of the stage is day, while Sophitia's is sunset, and are both set in autumn.

Trivia

  • In Soulcalibur IV's Chain of Souls, she is shown to join forces with Sophitia, though the two sisters fight each other.
  • For some mysterious reason, no one, with the exception of Alpha Patroklos, in the Alexandra family will not reveal their weight.
  • In Soul Edge Official Handbook ~Chronicle~, Cassandra is revealed to be the reincarnation of the goddess Aphrodite. This plot point, however, appears to have been dropped and is most likely non-canon.
  • When Cassandra first appeared in Soulcalibur II, she originally replaced Sophitia, using a movestyle similar to that of her older sister. However, Sophitia was later added to the home version of Soulcalibur II, making both sisters available.
  • In Soulcalibur II, Cassandra carries three homages to past Namco games: One of weapons is the Red Crystal Rod & Red Line Shield, which comes from The Tower of Druaga and its sequels. Also, her third costume is modeled after Valkyrie, the heroine from Namco's Valkyrie no Bōken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu. Also, her ultimate weapon of both Soulcalibur II and Soulcalibur III, Valkyrie, is Valkyrie's weapon. It was originally given to Sophitia in Soul Edge. This weapon is available in Soulcalibur IV, though her ultimate weapon is now Soul Calibur.
  • The Soul of Cassandra discipline is available to created characters of the Sage class in Soulcalibur III.
  • Cassandra, along with Raphael, is an unlockable player in Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2.
  • Her Destined Battle in Soulcalibur II is Charade, and her Destined Battle in Soulcalibur III is Raphael.
  • In her Story Mode in Soulcalibur IV, Cassandra encounters Rock after she defeats Raphael, Auguste, Marienbard, and Jacqueline in the first stage. The two of them work together on defeating Astaroth in her second stage, but then Rock leaves Cassandra after the third stage for personal goals. In Rock's Story Mode, Cassandra does the same thing with the encounter and the departure in exactly the same stages. Cassandra fights Sophitia in the fourth stage, who is apparently a new host for the evil sword. It is unknown if Sophitia did this to herself on her own, or if Tira manipulated her into this.
  • Cassandra and Sophitia are different is some ways. Since Sophitia is, or at least used to be, very loyal to Hephaestus, she can hear him and she relies on his power. Cassandra, however, is not humble and blames Hephaestus for what has happened to Sophitia. So she relies on her own strength, and Raphael even comments that she has the power to dispel evil. Also, Cassandra seems to not be hesitant like Sophitia, as seen in their Soulcalibur IV endings.
  • Although Cassandra does defeat Algol in her Soulcalibur IV ending, she does not kill him. So, it is unknown what has happened to him. Also, the way she pierces Soul Edge in the eye with Soul Calibur is almost the exact the same way Siegfried did in the opening movie of Soulcalibur III.
  • Cassandra is nicknamed "The Valiant Princess". "Valiant" means boldly courageous; brave; stout-hearted.
  • Cassandra also appears in Sophitia's Edge Master ending in Soul Edge.
  • One of the announcer's quotes in Soulcalibur II says that she chooses her path like a "Free Bird". This was a reference to a song by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
  • To explain the new features of Soulcalibur IV, Namco released an omake manga, in which Cassandra "taught" new character Hilde about the game's new features. And ironically, the duo return in Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny's The Gauntlet mode as two of the main characters that are trying to find a cure for Hilde's father, whereas Dampierre would later on join them. Also, all three of them give advice to the Player along the road as well as they provide humor for the story.
  • Like her older sister, Sophitia, Cassandra is a baker.
  • Cassandra has the greatest number of joke weapons of any character to date.
  • In Soulcalibur IV, her 1P costume is a palette swap of her 2P costume in Soulcalibur II, & used the colors from the Soulcalibur III 1P costume. Her 2P outfit in Soulcalibur IV resembled a version of her 1P outfit from Soul Calibur III, & used the 2P's colors costume, but the weapons were reversed.
  • Cassandra's 2P costume in Soulcalibur IV is named "Atalanta", after a character in Greek mythology.
  • The helmet, breast plate, and skirt on Cassandra's bonus costume in Soulcalibur II are available in character creation in Soulcalibur III.
  • The book, New Legends of Project Soul makes mention of Cassandra's whereabouts, stating that she was somehow transported into Astral Chaos.

Etymology

Cassandra's name means "Shining upon men". Her last name, Alexandra, means "Protector of Mankind". She is most likely inspired by Cassandra, the prophetess from Homer's The Illiad who was cursed by Apollo for defying him and not returning his love for her.
