Soulcalibur: A Legend Reborn
- Act I: In Progress
Act I: The Beginning
Riley and the Lind family lived outside the cities and lived in a rural community. Riley was born as the middle child in the family of three. Unlike his other siblings, he was spent more time with his father Richard than anybody else in his family. In secret, Richard taught him Shinden Tsushima-ryu Battōjyutsu at age ten.
After the final battle against Havok Cross, both Riley and Mustafa fall through the void later waking up in a forest.
"What happened?" Riley was dazed and confused has he looked around for Soul Calibur. "Where are we?" Mustafa also started to regain consciousness and noticed something was strange when he awakened.
"Something just isn't right." Riley noticed that Soul Calibur was no longer glowing and he was unable to un sheath the blade. As he keeps trying to draw the blade, Mustafa hears rustling from the nearby trees. "Um...Riley, I think we got company."
Riley is a young man who has Dark Brown hair and rare violet irises as his eye color. Although Riley is from the future, he is shown to be wearing the Justice Surcoat and Ruffian Trousers. His costume highly resembles α Patroklos' clothing color scheme as his outfit has blue accents in it, even though both characters have no relation to each other. He wields Soul Calibur with this costume.
In his Alternate costume, he is wearing Onyx Plated armor which resembles spartan armor. This set of armor is also similar to Willis's armor with the exception that Riley's armor has black plating and a unique design on the breastplate of a pheonix.
Riley fights with a sword and scabbard, he wields an Iai Blade. His sword was passed on how to wield the Iai Blade but he taught himself all of his moves. He has both close and mid range attacks and can usually throw out a ton of spinning and fast paced attacks giving the opponent making it almost impossible for the opponent to recover. Riley has the fastest moveset in the series and if played properly, makes him a High-Tier Character. This is his True and most familiar style and shares the same move set as α Patroklos.
Transcending Rapture: Riley sprints forward and swings a devastatingly fast blow at his opponent, crystallizing them as he sheathes his sword.
|Weapon type||Iai Blade|
When Abdul uncovered a fragment of Soul Calibur, he took it back to the den. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to figure out how to wield it because it never changed form for him so he had a meeting with the entire brotherhood and tried to determine the Wielder of Soul Calibur. When Riley had the chance to hold the fragment, it immediately switched form from a shard to its Iai Blade Form. Since Riley wields an Iai Blade himself, this indicated that he was worthy to wield Soul Calibur.
Unlike his other weapon, Soul Calibur has a blue blade and a crystallized effect when he attacks an opponent.
