- "I'm The King!"
- — Hotaru
What lies in his soul is Corruption.
Hotaru appears first in Soul Calibur IV, and reappears in Soul Calibur V.
Soul Calibur IV
Hotaru is pale and has faded, light-green hair and icy blue eyes. His outfit usually consist of reds, golds, and black and he likes to wear boots. He wears a bright red shirt with gold symbolism on the chest. His pants are black and baggy and he wears a hood to match
Soul Calibur V
In Soulcalibur V, his skin is even paler than it was before, making him appear dead. A black steak is on the right side of his face and the whites of his eys are now black due to the completion of his malfestation. His hair is longer and thicker and he wears it in a messy, upwards hairstyle; that or in a ponytail. He still continues to wear black, red and gold, but he has abandoned his obessions with hoods and is seen to be a lot less conservative.
Ring Blade (Ouroborus)
Chinese Blade (Earth's Rotation). This Sword is directly from Heaven, gifted to Lee at her creation.
Phantom Pavillion (See-Saw)
He is the Son of Seres Saharah
Cousin of Yuner
- Hotaru means "firefly" or "lightning bug" in Japanese.
- Hotaru was probably the most conservatively dressed characters by LightningSakura until recent costumes
