Fan Yuner (ファン ・ユイナー, Fan Yuinā; Chinese: 范允儿 Pinyin: Fàn Yǔnér) is a fan character created by Hyper Zergling for the Soul series of fighting games that appears in Soul Calibur: The Demon-Angel War, Soul Calibur: Circle of Legends, and Soul Calibur: Blades of War as a non-playable character. She can also be created in Soul Calibur V's Character Creation.
In Soul Calibur V's promotional material she would be referred to as The Angel of Purity.
Centuries ago, an angel descended from the clouds for the desire to live alongside humanity, merely out of curiosity. Arriving in what would be present-day China, he disguised himself under the name of Fan Li, and became the advisor in the state of Yue. Eventually, he would fall in love with a mortal whose beauty exceeded those of his kind. After they were wed, the two had a single daughter they named Yuner, and she was as beautiful as her mother had ever been. When Yuner reached the age of nine, her mother died of illness. Her father continued to support her as she grew into a young woman.
Yuner grew at the same pace as the mortals around her, and knew nothing of what she really was. As the years went by long after she reached adulthood, however, it was clear that she was not normal. She asked her father what she really was. Having no choice, he revealed to her that she was not of the world she lived in. Her father apologized and blamed himself for making the mistake of living with humans, and asked his daughter to return with him back to the clouds. Yuner agreed, and the two of them ascended back to the Kingdom of their kind.
Yuner would eventually grow bored of the Kingdom in the Clouds and miss the surface, the place she considered home. When she returned to the human world, she discovered that many villagers were praising a man by the name of Xie Tian for saving them. Wanting to meet the hero, Yuner asked for the location of his home. The villagers were generous enough to give her the location, and she found him alone, taking care of his only child, Owen. Seeing the hardships Xie Tian faced, Yuner offered to take care of his son, becoming an older-sister figure to the boy, and made her home in a nearby abandoned house.

In the year 1607, the number of malfested began increasing at alarming rates. Possessing the ability to cure humans of malfestation, Yuner set off on a quest to revert the malfested, accompanied by her bodyguard, Eliana.
During her journey, Yuner encountered Owen and Alexandra, the former of which begged for her to cure Xie Tian of severe malfestation. While Yuner was going to accept Owen's request, her bodyguard, Eliana, reminded her that many more people needed her help. Yuner proceeded to argue, but was reluctantly convinced to continue to help other civilians. Eliana then told Owen and Alexandra that they took far too long to find the two of them, and had they made their request much earlier, they would have been able to help him. Angry, Owen responded with "do you realize how much I've been through?" to which Eliana had nothing to say. Unable to do anything, Owen and Alexandra watched the angels take into the skies, and fly to their next location.
