Soulcalibur: Perfect Wind is a universe that is very similar to the Soul series and Tekken canon with some minor differences, such as the existence of additional characters. It is a side story that revolves around the Kazemaru family, a bloodline of demon-hunting samurai who investigate supernatural occurrences, including Soul Edge and the Devil Gene.
The name "Perfect Wind", comes from the surname "Kazemaru", the name of the family around which the stories of this universe center. The characters for "Kazemaru" (風丸) literally translate as "wind circle" or "wind perfection". The name has no real symbolic meaning to the story, and was taken from an obscure character from the anime and manga series Yu Yu Hakusho. After finding out that the name was a viable surname, it stuck.
Story and Canon
The canon of the Soul series is largely unchanged, but the story focuses on the Perfect Wind protagonist, Seiji Kazemaru, as he gathers information on the Soul Swords and explores the world beyond his borders. Future stories center around his descendants, who carry on his legacy by investigating and hunting supernatural threats to humanity.
The Perfect Wind universe dictates that Soulcalibur shares a universe and canon with its sister series, Tekken, due to heavily impied ties between their backstories. For example, this universe's canon explicitly considers the Manji Clan of both games to be one and the same, the three known Yoshimitsus to be of the same line of succession, and hints at a possible connection between Malfestation and the Devil Gene. Therefore, the events of Death By Degrees and Urban Reign are also canon. God Eater, another Bandai Namco property, fits into the canon as well, with a descendant of the Kazemaru clan as the protagonist of the first game's events.
It can be assumed that other original Bandai Namco titles take place in this universe (such as Genpei Tōma Den, Time Crisis, and others), though they have little to no impact on the story of the Kazemaru clan, and are simply part of the world's history. An exception is the Tales series, as they are not set on our Earth.
The Soulcalibur arc of Perfect Wind, taking place from 1590 into the early 17th century, is the foundation of this fanverse, and centers around the events of Soulcalibur III onwards. The events from Soulcalibur III to V center around Seiji Kazemaru, a loyal samurai serving the House of Takazaki. Roughly around the events of the first Soulcalibur, he is traveling across East Asia learning about different martial arts and other skills, including training under Chinese kung fu master Tong Wufan.
During the events of Soulcalibur III, Lord Takazaki sends him to Europe to track down Soul Edge, alongside Master Tong's daughter, Lingmei. Soulcalibur IV continues the story, though their mission has changed to destroying Soul Edge, due to its nature as an evil sword.
Soulcalibur V follows the 17 year timeskip, in which Seiji, now a remorseful veteran of the Korean Invasions, seeks to destroy Soul Edge once again, in the hopes of finding a worthy challenger to end his pain.
Seiji's story ends with him finding peace, though he is recorded to have died in the Siege of Osaka in 1615.
The Tekken story arc of Perfect Wind, taking place in the early 21st century, follows the exploits of Gaku Kazemaru, an American-born descendant of Seiji Kazemaru who takes up his legacy as a paranormal investigator and demon hunter. Trained in both Karate and Taekwondo, Gaku enters the 6th King of Iron Fist Tournament, and later investigates Azazel. Prior to the events of Tekken 6, however, he had already investigated Ogre during the events of Tekken 3.
The God Eater arc, taking place in a post apocalyptic mid-21st century, follows Shinobu Kazemaru, an American-born God Eater of the Fenrir Far East Branch.
The stories of the Perfect Wind universe center around the Kazemaru clan, a family of samurai dating back to the Heian period. However, they would not gain much prominence until the exploits of Seiji Kazemaru, due to his adventures across the world finding Soul Edge, and his status as a war hero of Sawasaki.
The Kazemaru family, though virtually unheard of outside of Sawasaki and other territories once owned by the Takazaki clan, would constantly play a part in major historical events. Starting with Seiji, they would have close ties to the supernatural occurrences and events of the world, though members of the family, including Seiji himself, seldom had their own supernatural abilities, instead relying on their own skills or natural talents. However some, again including Seiji in his later life, would make use of advanced ninpo techniques to seal demons.
Starting with Seibei Kazemaru, the father of Seiji Kazemaru, the family would stay in service of the Takazaki family of daimyo until the Meiji Restoration, in which the last known members of the Takazaki bloodline would allegedly perish.
The clan has spread to multiple nations across the country, partly due to Seiji's own adventures, two of his children leaving Japan for good, and his descendants dispersing across the world after Japan opened its borders. A handful of them still continue to hunt demons in the modern day in other countries, including the USA, China, and various parts of Southeast Asia.
Due to unknown means, the bloodline, though originating in this universe, would find its way traversing other universes, usually by way of dimensional travel, willing or otherwise.
The Takazaki clan are the family of daimyo whom the Kazemaru clan served starting from the Sengoku era until the Meiji era. They claim descent from the Seiwa Genji bloodline, and have controlled Sawasaki since their founding.
Starting with Seibei Kazemaru joining Nobuhiro Takazaki in the mid-16th century, the Takazaki family and the Kazemaru family have a traditional close friendship despite their de jure relationship as lord and vassal, respectively. This was most evident between Hirosuke Takazaki and Seiji Kazemaru, as the two trusted each other above all. At times, Seiji was known to host Lord Hirosuke in his own house, and the two would address each other as old friends rather than as master and retainer, just as they did during their childhood.
By the 1870s, the Takazaki clan's name was forgotten by history after anti-Imperialist protestors burned down Lord Tadahiro Takazaki's mansion. Lord Tadahiro was said to have gone into hiding, only entrusting his whereabouts to Kazuyori Kazemaru, who would eventually become the first mayor of the new modernized city of Sawasaki. However, the name "Takazaki" is remembered fondly by Sawasaki's people.
One difference between the Perfect Wind universe and others is the existence of fictional cities and even lands. Since most Namco works are simply world history in this universe, other countries such as Sercia, Caruba, and Lukano exist.
Not far from Earth's solar system, a near-identical solar system with a similar inhabitable planet exists complete with its own history. Though it has no current impact on the Perfect Wind story, it is implied that some of its characters may have counterparts on this world.
Sawasaki and Sawajima
One of the more notable places exclusive to this universe is Sawasaki (沢崎 Sawasaki), a territory on the northern shore of the Seto Inland Sea, located in present-day Hiroshima Prefecture. The territory of Sawasaki was ruled by the Takazaki clan throughout the Sengoku and Edo periods.
By the time the Meiji Restoration began, the Takazaki clan had met their end during the Meiji Restoration, and Kazuyori Kazemaru, a descendant of Seiji Kazemaru, would unite many of the small towns of Sawasaki into one city. As a result, modern day Sawasaki is an eclectic city that combines modern elements of modern Tokyo or Osaka with rustic elements of the towns of old.
The Takazaki clan would also control Sawajima (澤島 Sawajima), a small nearby island off the coast of Sawasaki. The Takazaki clan commissioned a Buddhist temple to be built here in the mid 1590s, an effort which would be helmed by Seiji Kazemaru. The modern city would extend to this island. The Kazemaru family would make use of the more remote parts of the island as a training ground for future generations of ninja.
Historically, Sawasaki, being a territory that welcomed Christianity, was frequented by Western traders during the Sengoku era, and would have heavy Western influence throughout the Sengoku era into the early Edo period. Towards the end of the Isolationist era, Westerners would once again frequent Sawasaki, with many families to this day claiming Portuguese, English, or German heritage. Most of these families live in the "Little England" district on Sawajima, which was built after the end of the Isolationist period as a port for Western sailors. A handful of these families are commonly found running a Catholic church, due to some of them having been Hidden Christians in the past. Curiously, a handful of families, despite having lived in Sawajima for generations, appear to have strong English features due to many of the first English colonists starting families among themselves, only to become mixed with Japanese blood later on.
Sawasaki in the modern day is also known to have a significant Korean population, from whom Gaku Kazemaru is descended.
Myths and Legends
The Soulcalibur universe acknowledges the existence of beings such as the Greek Pantheon and other mythical creatures. In the Perfect Wind canon, the Greek Pantheon alongside many other gods, such as Shinto Dieties and others, are implied to exist as well.
The Earth of Perfect Wind has also had contact with extraterrestrials, in cases both related and unrelated to the Soul Swords.
Canon and Other Universes
The Perfect Wind universe, while largely limited to Namco fighting games and the like, also has connections to other universes.
Due to the presence of Angol Fear, and her status as a bonus character rather than a guest character, Perfect Wind also accepts the events of Sgt. Frog in its canon, despite its overly comedic nature.
The appearances of guest characters may be considered broad strokes canon. Other worlds such as a version of the Star Wars Legends galaxy and a version of Hyrule do exist in the same universe, and Hell may exist as it is depicted in the Spawn series, but they ultimately have little to no impact on the stories of the main characters. However, with the reveal of Akuma in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution and the implications of his impact on the main story, Perfect Wind may fully accept elements of Street Fighter into its canon as well, if not outright fully accepting the franchise.
Seiji Kazemaru has appeared in other games from completely different companies. These crossovers may be considered canon, though their lack of impact on the main story is usually handwaved in some way. For example, as in the ending of Warriors Orochi 3, Seiji's memories of the Orochi dimension fade away as with everyone else in the game.
