Amestrius(あメストリあス, Amesutoriasu) is a character in the Soul series of fighting games. He has sworn a blood oath to destroy Soul Edge forever, no matter the cost. Amestrius made his first appearance a secondary antagonist in Soulcalibur and has since returned in every game in the main series.
What lies in his soul is Sorrow.
Debuting in Soulcalibur, Amestrius was a middle-aged man with mid-length sandy blond hair and green eyes, wearing simple knight armor. After Soulcalibur, he cut his hair very short and modifies his armorm discarding the right pauldron and gauntlet to give himself unrestricted mobility. During Soulcalibur II he gains a long jagged scar from his forehead to his right check, which he gained fighting against Raphael. In Soulcalibur III, he returns with a grittier blood-themed motif with his hair slightly longer and his skin noticeably darker. In Soulcalibur IV, his armor retained the same war-torn grit and his hair had grown almost as long as it was in Soulcalibur. In Soulcalibur V, Amestrius' hair has almost completely greyed, but returned to it's Soulcalibur III length and is well-kempt. He has also grown a stubble and his scar remains. His face has wrinkled significantly, but his body seems to have retained a youthful appearance. His main weapon in Soulcalibur was Blutsucher, a jagged zweihander, and it has remained since. He also carried a simple broadsword for faster attacks, but swapped it out in Soulcalibur III for Sanguiniker, a wider yet shorter blade with a flat end and a red lining down the center.
