|Stigma Sword & Arcadia Shield|
Stigma Sword, as it appears in Soulcalibur V
|Weapon type||Sword and Shield|
Stigma Sword & Arcadia Shield is Patroklos' default weapon. The shield also seems to act as the sword's scabbard. It appears that the Arcadia Shield has quite a very similar design to his mother's shield design for the Elk Shield and Orichalcum except for the color contrasts of red and gold.
The Stigma Sword was forged by Patroklos himself under the guidance of his father. The Arcadia Shield was the last weapon ever created by Rothion. Rothion claimed the shield was created from divine ore from Hephaestus, just like Sophitia's own weapons. He designed the symbol of an elk on this shield as well, representing the goddess Artemis. Patroklos was unable to ask his father if it truly was a shield of the gods, as Rothion soon died from illness, though he felt certain it was true.
- Stigma (ϛ) is a ligature of the Greek letters sigma (Σ) and tau (Τ), which was used in writing Greek between the Middle Ages and the 19th century. It is also used as a numeral symbol for the number 6.
- The elk symbol on the shield is what allows Patroklos to identify his sister, as the same symbol is on her shield.
