Biography

Soul Edge

Sophitia lives in Athens with her family, a part of the Ottoman Empire. The daughter of a Greek baker, she worked at her family bakery. She has always treasured her country's culture and prayed often to the city guardian, Athena, the goddess of wisdom. One day, as she bathed in a forest spring, a bright light appeared and took the shape of a man. He revealed to her that he was the Olympian god of fire and forge Hephaestus and told her of the evil sword Soul Edge.  The existence of such a powerful blade would put shame to his name, as he had not created it, and that if anyone were to discover it, it would bring much pain to the world. Hephaestus ordered her to come to the Eurydice Shrine and receive a holy weapon, the Omega Sword, so that she could destroy Soul Edge. At first, Sophitia was reluctant to take the holy mission; as she told Hephaestus, she was but a baker's daughter. However, Hephaestus insisted she could achieve the goal, and Sophitia relented. Upon gaining her equipment, she ventured forward. Sophitia did eventually track down Soul Edge in a port in Valencia, Spain, and she fought its wielder, the dread pirate Cervantes de Leon, destroying one of the twin blades. However, shards of the evil sword flew with great force from her powerful blow, wounding her too greatly to finish the fight. Just as Cervantes was about to deliver a finishing blow to the wounded Sophitia, a mysterious female ninja, Taki, saved her and proceeded to kill the evil pirate. After the battle had finished, Taki carried Sophitia on her back to her home in Athens, where Sophitia's sister, Cassandra, had been waiting for her. Cassandra was the only person to believe her story at the time.

Soulcalibur

After recovering from her wounds she suffered from the sword fragments, she returned to her life as the daughter of a baker and spent her days peacefully. However, one day, when she was out shopping with Cassandra, Sophitia had an ominous vision of a knight in azure armor and a sword of immense evil—a sword she knew that had to be Soul Edge. She suddenly collapsed and was rescued by a swordsmith named Rothion; they fell in love at the first sight, and decided to become engaged. They were visiting the temple of Hephaestus to report their engagement to him, and then she received a second oracle from the God to destroy the remains of Soul Edge. Hephaestus then supplied her with holy metal and ordered Rothion to forge a new Omega Sword and shield; she set out on a second journey to destroy the cursed sword. On this second journey, Sophitia, who healed the lands polluted by evil, eventually stopped feeling the evil presence of the blade. She continued for a while, but once she was sure someone else had destroyed the blade, she immediately ended her travels and returned to her home as quickly as possible.

Soulcalibur II

There, she soon married Rothion and eventually gave birth to both a son and a daughter, Patroklos and Pyrrha. But a strange metal shard that Rothion had received from a mysterious customer four years later brought a halt to her newfound happiness. Upon bringing the metal fragment home, their two children began to fight violently with each other over the artifact. The evil aura the fragment emanated caused Sophitia's old wounds to ache, as they had been undoubtedly infected with the evil energy of Soul Edge seven years previous, explaining her children's predilection for the bizarre aura. Cassandra had seen Sophitia's distraught expression and proceeded to grab the shard from her grasp and run out the door, running away from home soon afterwards with the Omega Sword and Nemea Shield. A couple of weeks later, Sophitia decided that if she was to free her children from the evil sword's curse and ensure her sister's safety, she had to embark on a third journey. But because Cassandra had stolen Sophitia's previous weapons, which she had stored at Eurydice Shrine, Rothion forged her a new set to destroy the cursed Soul Edge once and for all...

Soulcalibur III

Her journey took her to Ostrheinsburg Castle, which was blanketed by a thick fog. From the fog emerged a small girl in green clothing with a large ring-like blade. The girl casually told Sophitia that Soul Edge was not in the castle, and she also told her that she wanted to "play" with Sophitia's children with a smile that was neither gentle nor heartwarming. Sophitia lunged at the girl, but she easily dodged her attack, and disappeared into the fog, laughing. Sophitia quickly returned home and was relieved to see that her family was safe, but she was unsure whether to continue her search for Soul Edge. She went to the Eurydice Shrine to pray to Hephaestus for guidance, where the girl in green was waiting for her.

As they fought, Sophitia noticed an emotion from the girl other than madness. She realized that the girl had never felt happiness and commented as such. With a look of hatred in her eyes, the irritated girl simply pushed Sophitia away and left, leaving these words in her wake: "You're annoying... when the time comes, I'll come for your children". Sophitia then made up her mind. She was going to destroy Soul Edge for the sake of her children. Asking her husband to keep their children safe, Sophitia left to continue her search for the cursed sword.

Soulcalibur IV

Sophitia continued her pursuit of the cursed sword, and at last she arrived in the sword's dominion, Ostrheinsburg. There, she learned a shocking truth. While she was away from home, a cunning servant of the cursed sword had abducted her daughter Pyrrha, who had been deliberately exposed to the corrupting influence of the blade. Soul Edge had grown more powerful then ever, a sinister voice whispered, and Pyrrha would die without the sword's evil energy to sustain her.

"Feeling torn? I would too, if I'd left my children to fend for themselves!" The words clung to Sophitia like a curse. "Well, don't believe me, if you don't want to, but I suggest you think carefully before making your choice." She had come running after the sword to destroy it, but when she thought about the consequences now, if Soul Edge should be lost, what would become of her child?

And so that her child might live, the crusader Sophitia made her choice; to battle any righteous warrior who came to Ostrheinsburg seeking to destroy Soul Edge. With each new sin, guilt tore at her heart, but there was no other way. Would Sophitia and her family never be able to dwell in the light of the sun again?

Cursed blood flowing through her body

Sophitia was fighting Cervantes and managed to destroy the female half of Soul Edge during her fight with him. But she was badly injured by the shards and about to lose the fight. Taki came for help and ended the battle by killing Cervantes. Taki managed to extract most shards out of Sophitia's body, but one remained near her heart: when she gave birth to Pyrrha and Patroklos, both of her children were "tainted". Tira was interested in Sophitia's children because they were potential hosts for Soul Edge and she managed to kidnap Pyrrha. In Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia tried to rescue Pyrrha, but was told that her daughter was now so tainted that she could no longer survive without Soul Edge. Sophitia had no other choice and cooperated with Nightmare and Tira to protect the sword... And her child. In the end, Siegfried managed to defeat Nightmare, and Sophitia had to sacrifice her life in order to save Pyrrha's, by transplanting her last Soul Edge shard in her daughter's body. In doing so, Sophitia died in order so that her daughter may live.

Soulcalibur: Lost Swords

Sophitia appears in the non canon free-to-play game Lost Swords. She is one of the three characters the player can choose to start with, along with Siegfried and Mitsurugi . Her default weapon is a red version of her Omega Sword and Elk Shield.

Soulcalibur: Unbreakable Soul

When the player and Cassandra arrive at the Eurydice Shrine, Sophitia mistakes them for thieves aligned with Dampierre, who was planning on taking the holy weapons. After the player defeats her, she apologizes for the mistakes, but regrettably tells them that only those who are pure in heart can wield the holy weapons. Sophitia then notices Cassandra and comments that she looks like her younger sister, not knowing that Cassandra is the same person from a parallel world.

Physical Appearance

For the beginning of Soul Edge, Sophitia was a young girl with pale skin, green eyes, and long, braided blonde hair. Over the years, she grew up from a brave teenager into a caring, protective mother. During her creation, designers focused on maintaining an innocent appearance for her face, to give the character a sense of feeling fresh and young. Freedom of movement between the sword and shield were also emphasized, with the intention to allow for the blade to rotate around the shield for cyclonic attacks. An alternate character called Azula was conceived during the development of Sophitia's secondary outfit in Soul Edge, but was abandoned.

Personality

Sophitia is a benevolent, faithful, valiant, selfless, and strong-willed woman who is devoted to her family and will do anything to protect them by all means, even if it means sacrificing her own life. She is especially fond of her children, and willingly decided to join the forces that serve Soul Edge to protect her daughter Pyrrha, whose life lies in the hands of Soul Edge. She may also be considered as tough as her younger sister Cassandra, because she has taken on a very tough decision that few could bear. Her personality has softened and matured a lot in Soulcalibur III; her voice is more low-pitched and monotonous, for example. In Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia is very melancholic and doubtful, due to the danger her daughter incurs.

As Sophitia struggles to push the sword away, Algol walks up to her, grabs the sword, and moves it away with ease. A shocked Sophitia

looks up and says, "What? You..." Algol then says, "All through the ages, a parent's love for their child surpasses any weapon."

A flashback sequence initiates at this time, showing Algol's son attacking him with Soul Edge. Algol explains that if one is misguided in his beliefs, he will only bring harm to those he wishes to protect. "You have a child as well?" Sophitia asks, bewildered at Algol's empathy. "Time is cruel," Algol replies. "Even with all of this power, I cannot undo the past." Algol suddenly disappears with both Soul Calibur and Soul Edge in his hands, and his voice is heard: "Now, brave mother, return to your child."

The text-only epilogues states that although her name is not recorded in history, she probably lived the rest of her life in happiness.

Weapons

Stages

Eurydice Shrine - Arena (SE)

This temple was designed and constructed by the god of forge; Hephaestus, one of twelve Olympian Gods. It previously lay in ruin, but due to the power of Sophitia's faith it was restored to its former glory.

Shrine Of Eurydice (SC)

The gods constructed a circular shrine atop a great sacred mountain. Legends say the gods created this shrine to defy themselves. As if to prove this legend, the path to the shrine was a cascade of giant stairs that human feet could never step upon. "If the gods do not wish us to enter the shrine of legend then we shall construct a second shrine for them to come to us." Therefore, this second shrine stood next to the mountain. All who visited the shrine surrounded by clouds and divine light felt as if they were floating in air. What could have been the hopes and bows of people standing on this shrine looking at the circular shrine of legend in the distance? And of Sophitia...

(Note: known as Shrine in the Air in the Arcade version).

Eurydice Shrine Gallery (SC2)

This shrine is built high up a snow-covered mountain that is as beautiful as it is harsh. The scale of this temple is such that it is easy to believe that Olympian gods once dwelt in this place. Legends say Hephaestus, the God of fire and forge, built the main shrine on top of the summit. This is evidenced by the stairway that leads up to the shrine - the enormous steps are impossible for mortals to climb. Humans built this gallery around the giant stairway for their priests' use. In one corner of this meticulously built gallery is the place where a blacksmith couple gave an offering of a sword and a shield to Hephaestus. The arms have disappeared from the altar, however. Who could have taken them?

(Note: Sophitia shares this stage with Cassandra)

Eurydice Shrine - Gate of the Gods (SC3)

The gods of Olympus are long forgotten and no longer worshiped. But a number of phenomena confirm that they once existed. This temple in the clouds is one of them. This circular temple, said to have been constructed by the god of the forge, Hephaestus himself, stands at the peak of a mountain. Around the sides of the mountain spirals a giant stairway. People constructed a corridor for human use beside the stairway of the gods, for those who came to worship at the mountain peak. In front of the base of the stairs stands a temple marking the entrance to that corridor. It has been a great long time since this temple was constructed to call the gods to this place, but even those who visit it now will surely be awestruck by its beauty.

Thesmophoros' Imperial Garden (SC4)

Sophitia's Soulcalibur IV stage, in which she shares with Cassandra. This stage is a shrine. It shows some similarities with the Eurydice Shrine (Sophitia's stage in the soul series), except that this one is surrounded with a tropical setting, and the statue of Hephaestus is missing. Also, what appears to be either a mountain or a volcano can be seen at a distance.

Thesmophoros' Imperial Garden - Sunset (SCBD)

Same stage as Thesmophoros' Imperial Garden, except it's set in sunset and the background music is different.

Fighting Style

Sophitia is mainly a counter fighter. She is, like her sister Cassandra, quite an aggressive fighter, because of her right side throw and her Seraphim Strike, followed along with the Painful Fate combos, and her Heaven to Hell throw. She can avoid attacks and hit with an attack of her own. Like her younger sister, Cassandra, she is awful at long range, but makes up for it in attack throws, close quarters, strength, and speed. She is a lot more skilled and does more damage than Cassandra. She can also dash in and attack as well with a variety of moves. She is regarded by the tournament community as a high-to-top tier character, and is quite often used.

Critical Finish

Divine Palladium: Sophitia slashes her opponent with her sword on their chest, pushing them back, then she jumps on them. Using them to launch herself spinning into the air, she swings her sword at her opponent, stunning them. She then gets into a praying position (Possibly praying to Zeus, who in Greek mythology could use lightning bolts to attack enemies) and a flash of thunder comes, striking her opponent down.

Weapon Arts

Heaven's Gate: This once was her Unblockable Attack, but now it's a Break Attack. It begins with the animation, in which Sophitia crouches, and then she immediately hits the opponent. It always leads to a Guard Break, if the opponent is guarding. This attack sends the opponent up into the air, allowing you to create a combo, even when your enemy is lying on the ground or already is in the mid-air. Although, after performing this single strike Sophitia can't do anything for a while. This can be dangerous in case this vertical attack is avoided. In addition, it can be easily interrupted by the opponent's middle or low attacks, but you will be surely saved from all high attacks. So the best way to use it is to activate it, when the opponent isn't able to attack

Judgment Point: That's a combination of Twin Step Somersault and Guardian's Judgement. The first middle kick attack makes the opponent fly, after that Sophitia makes three more hits and says "Now... Pardon me!", sending the opponent back to the ground. The last kick attack performed in slow motion, and regardless of your type of the weapon, is accompanied with blue glow, which resembles that of Hilde's charge attacks. The first attack is pretty slow and unsafe, even though Sophita avoids all high attacks during it, so it's better to use this Weapon Art in combo, when the opponent is stunned on the ground or thrown high into the air. If she misses, or opponent is guarding, only the first attack will be performed.

Jupiter Storm: This is basically Elysium's Critical Edge. Sophitia turns around quickly and says "I cannot lose. Ah... Gods". Right after that the opponent is hit twelve times by the invisible light force, and the last of the hits make the blowing sound. It might be the most efficient Weapon Art in the game, as it is start attacking immediately after pressing, easy to combo and can be performed at any distance. If the opponent is attacked in the air, the last hit makes him fly even higher, enabling you to keep hitting him after the Weapon Art, otherwise the opponent is just stunned, but you still will be able to add some more attacks. Jupiter Storm will be stopped by no means.

Valkyrie Arc: This Weapon Art consists of the middle horizontal attack followed by two hits of Angel Arc. At first, there's an animation, in which Sophitia is drawing her sword back before landing the first horizontal attack, then there's a simple Seraphim Strike, but the sword has a blue shine during it, and at last she tears her sword out of the opponent in slow motion, crossed lines can be noticed during the hit, and it is always accompanied with green sparkles, again, regardless of your weapon type. Before making the attack, sometimes Sophitia says "Ready?" and during the attack she says "This is... the end!". The biggest advantage of this move is that it starts as quick as Jupiter Storm, so you can activate it just when you're almost hit by the opponent, and you'll never get hit. However, that's not easy to make a combo with it, as the first attack hits stunned opponent available for middle attacks only after certain types of moves, though it always works as wall combo. You can also hit the opponent in the air, but don't hope to make a lot of damage, as the first two strikes will hit, but the last animated devastating attack can only be performed on standing opponent. By the way, if the first attack misses, Sophitia doesn't continue attacking, but if the opponent is guarding the second one will be performed and if it hits, the third will take place anyway.

Trivia

  • In Soul Edge, one of Sophitia's weapons is Valkyrie, which was later given to Cassandra in Soulcalibur II and the later games. The weapon comes from Valkyrie no Bōken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu, in which the main character, Valkyrie, wields this weapon. Also, Sophitia's hairstyle may be based off of Valkyrie's. In Soulcalibur II, Sophitia's 3rd costume is modeled after Ki, the heroine of The Tower of Druaga. Also, one of Sophitia's weapons is the Blue Crystal Rod & Blue Line Shield, which also comes from The Tower of Druaga and its sequels.
  • For some reason all of the Alexandra family (excluding Alpha Patroklos) have refused to reveal their weight.
  • Although Sophitia herself does not make an appearance in Namco X Capcom, the Charades that appear in the game use her moveset and weapons.
  • Until Soulcalibur V, she was the only female playable character to have a family of her own.
  • Azola is the one who talks with Sophitia, telling about the curse that fell over her daughter, Pyrrha, and convinces Sophitia to fight alongside Nightmare's troops in Soulcalibur IV[1]. In the first stage of Sophitia's Story Mode in Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia has Azola as a partner. The two of them work together on defeating Hilde and some of her royal guards, but then Sophitia immediately defeats Azola with her own hands afterwards.
  • In the fourth stage of Cassandra's Story Mode in Soulcalibur IV, Cassandra faces off against Sophitia, who appears to have become the new host for Soul Edge. She wields the evil sword in the form of a sword and shield. Also, her hair is darker, and her entire outfit is dark red. It's unknown if Sophitia did this to herself, or if Tira manipulated her.
  • Sophitia and Cassandra are different in some ways. Sophitia is, or at least used to be, very loyal to Hephaestus, and relies on his power. However, Cassandra is not loyal at all, and she relies on her own strength. Also, Sophitia is hesitant, unlike her sister, as seen in their Soulcalibur IV endings.
  • Sophitia is nicknamed "Renewal of the Vow" in Soul Edge and "Emotional Goddess" in Soulcalibur.
  • In Soul Edge, The player can receive an alternate costume 'Sophitia!', which is Sophitia with her armor from her bad ending. There is also Sophitia!!' Which is Sophitia wearing her swimsuit from her Good Ending.
  • In Soul Edge version 2 arcade edition, Sophitia has a different shield that can be chosen in her 2nd outfit.
  • In Soul Edge, Sophitia's name is pronounced "So-fith-tee-ah". This, however was a mistake that was corrected in the following games.
  • As of Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia is the only character whose artwork shows her crying. The reason for this is unknown, but some fans speculate that she is crying for her abducted daughter, Pyrrha.
  • Since her debut, Sophitia has had at least one costume that gives her brown hair despite being usually blond. In Soulcalibur III and Soulcalibur IV she stays blond in all costumes, but can have her hair changed in character creation.*
  • In Soul Edge the names of her relatives were all poorly translated - the most obvious mistake being Cassandra's name being Kathandra.
  • Sophitia's 1P hairstyle from Soulcalibur IV is selectable in Soulcalibur V's Character Creation
  • The music in the Soulcalibur V E3 Trailer is Sophitia's soundtrack from Soulcalibur IV, "Immaculate Pledge". In the Soulcalibur V TGS 2011 Trailer the music is "Fearless Eyes", Sophitia's soundtrack from Soulcalibur III.
  • In Soulcalibur V, Sophitia supposedly died 17 years prior due to an attack by a malfested, hinted to be Tira. This was later proven false, and that Sophitia chose to end her own life for Pyrrha's sake.
  • In Soulcalibur III, depending which option choose the player, after defeating Rock in Lakeside Coliseum, he offers himself to protect Sophitia's home and family.
  • Elysium, the will of Soul Calibur, took on Sophitia's appearance and voice in order to deceive Patroklos.
  • Sometime after Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia placed a shard of Soul Edge into Pyrrha's body to keep her alive. This would later cause her to transform into Pyrrha Ω. As this was the same shard that was inside Sophitia, located close to her heart, it is likely this act is what killed her.
  • Ever since her first appearance in Soul Blade/Soul Edge, Sophitia has notably had moments of being unbalanced in her mental strength. At some points, she remains persistent in fighting for what she believes in, whilst at others, her confidence remains relatively low or even at the edge of doubting her motives for battle. The most apparent case is from Soul Calibur III, where she not only appeared less hesitant to fight, but also seemingly not caring about the well-being about her opponent as much as she would have, for example, in Soul Calibur.
  • Sophitia's outfits have begun to show off more skin in each of her appearances. To date, her Soul Calibur outfit is the most modest whilst her Soul Calibur IV outfit is the most revealing. This is unusual considering her reputation as a pure and holy warrior, but it also contrasts poorly with her shy and timid nature.
  • During Soulcalibur Broken Destiny's opening, Sophitia is pit against Kratos due to their Greek backgrounds and opposing viewpoints, with Sophitia serving the gods and Kratos (formerly servant) against them.
  • Sophitia's return in Lost Swords makes her the first character cut from SoulCalibur V to make a return in a subsequent game, the second being Taki.

Etymology

"Sophitia" is most likely derived from the Greek name "Sophia" meaning "wisdom". Her last name, Alexandra, means "Protector of Mankind".
