History Edit

Soul Blade Edit

Cervantes' father, Philip de Leon, was a privateer sent on a special mission from the Spanish king to loot in the name of Spain. One day, he sailed closely to an English ship with intent to loot it, only to find out too late that it was a warship. He was taken by surprise, his ship was destroyed, and he died along with it. Cervantes was devastated. Cervantes grew up full of pride over his father who was a great sailor, but became a notorious pirate because of his father's death.

He decided that if that was what happened to sailors that swear allegiance to Spain, he would forsake it and become a pirate. One day, he received a message from the "Merchant of Death," Vercci. It was a request to find Soul Edge. At first Cervantes dismissed the offer, but finally accepted since Vercci was the merchant who gave him the artillery for his ship. After a year of searching, Cervantes found information pointing to an antiques dealer with a "strange article". There was no specific evidence that said article was Soul Edge, but Cervantes was a pirate, and could find some use for the ship's goods even if Soul Edge was not there. Cervantes attacked the ship, and nobody heard from him again for more than twenty years. He obtained Soul Edge from within his efforts and it eventually drove him mad as it had devoured his own soul and caused him to go into a psychotic state of insanity, leading Cervantes to slaughtering his own crew under the dark and malevolent power of Soul Edge itself. His insanity made him kill anyone who had came seeking the sword for their own reasons. Li Long was the first to confront him in an attempt to possess Soul Edge, but was defeated by him thanks to Soul Edge's own overwhelming power. Realizing that he was not strong enough to defeat Cervantes, Li Long had decided to make an immediate escape, with Cervantes pursuing him in an attempt to kill him and absorb his soul. However, Li Long successfully fled from the scene of the battle. In the end, the combined efforts of Sophitia, Taki, and Siegfried had led to both Cervantes' defeat and supposed death, but as it turns out, this was not the end of Cervantes.

Soul Calibur Edit

Nightmare, the new master of Soul Edge, unknowingly resurrected him using the fragments of Soul Edge still lodged inside Cervantes' body, but all his memories of his past life had vanished. Once again, Cervantes seeks the demonic blade with renewed fervor and strength. Over the course of the next three years, Cervantes sailed in a ghost ship, plundering and maddening ships across the world, as his memories gradually returned, along with the desire to search for Soul Edge again, even though he knew it had robbed him of his free will.

Soul Calibur 2 Edit

During Cervantes' search for Soul Edge, he realized that the second sword had been shattered as well when he found a few shards of the second sword. He pondered as to whether or not Soul Edge had been definitively conquered, but at that moment, the shards melded together on their own to create a bigger piece of the sword. For the next four years, Cervantes began his quest to steal souls and collect additional fragments. Eventually, they took the form of a legitimate sword. Cervantes' new goal was to regain Soul Edge, and to do that, he needed as many of the fragments as he could find.

By making use of the fragments of the cursed sword within his body, Cervantes succeeded in preserving his own will. With Soul Edge and the Adrian, he devoured the souls of brawny men of the sea.

Soul Calibur 3                                Edit

Cervantes sailed around his homeland of Spain, seeking souls to sustain both himself and his half of Soul Edge. But one day, the presence of the other half of the evil sword suddenly disappeared, And he himself began to crumble. Cervantes then realized that the fragments of Soul Edge that were sustaining his life were slowly losing their power.

Then Tira appeared on board the Adrian with a huge flock of ravens, claiming that she is a servant of the evil sword. She tells Cervantes that a powerful entity has appeared, and it was the one who temporarily destroyed the other half of Soul Edge. Then Tira leaves. Cervantes did not plan on sharing the same goal as hers, but he had to destroy the entity in order for him to stay alive.

Soul Calibur 4 Edit

Over time, Cervantes had consumed so many souls that he was able to create an army of the undead. He had even planned to devour the sweet soul of his own daughter, Ivy, in order to gain an even larger amount of power, but he could not locate his daughter's whereabouts. Soul Edge was now free from the seal of Soul Calibur, and his own sword was responding to this. Cervantes had no other choice but to let it go. But once Soul Edge regained all of its power, Cervantes will claim the sword for himself.

So he picked up an old sword that he used long ago, and even this sword soon became evil. With such great power, Cervantes was sure that no one can stop him.

Soul Calibur 5 Edit

Cervantes traveled to Ostrheinsburg in order to reclaim Soul Edge and devour the sweet soul of his daughter, Ivy, but it was Ivy herself who foiled this plan. In doing so, his daughter not only reclaimed her own soul, but also all the souls he had ever devoured. His body beaten and his mind shattered, Cervantes was swallowed by a dimensional rift opened by Soul Edge.

Years later, as the 17th century dawned, strange rumors began to stir among the men of the sea. They spoke of a giant ship with a skull on its bow, captained by the legendary Cervantes. No one truly believed it, of course —more than half a century had passed since the great pirate last stalked the Atlantic.

What they didn't know —what they couldn't have known— was that Cervantes had broken free of Soul Edge's control, and escaped from the other dimension. He had returned to his world at the height of his powers.

"I'll make damn sure those fools remember the name of Cervantes, Lord of the Seven Seas!"

Of this world once more but no longer bound by its rules, Cervantes set sail once again...

Soul Calibur Edit

The one lost sword... and his one-time master. He reached toward the demon sword, now without a host, and the two became one once again. A lone figure appeared, clawing his way through the eternal flames of evil. Regaining a lost part of himself, his memories came flooding back and the broken chain was now complete again.

His ship appeared across the seas once more as even the warships of the great naval powers were sent down to their watery graves.

"Raise another and make sail, me hearties! Cervantes de Leon sails again!"

Soul Calibur 2 Edit

With both blades of Soul Edge, the hellfire was his to command. The long emptiness had come to an end. Now he had everything, even Inferno was his to command. The world slowly slipped into darkness.

Algol is thrown to the ground, and Soul Calibur is shattered beside him. Cervantes then picks up Soul Edge, declaring that reawakening the sword is all that matters, and that Algol served no purpose. Insulted, Algol attempts to rise, supporting himself on the broken Soul Calibur.

"You dare mock me?" He says, "My battle, my resurrection?!"

Cervantes replies, "If you truly wish to meet your end in battle, then I will perform the last rites!" Cervantes then kills Algol, and proclaims that this is the power he has longed for. {C}"Do you fear me, gods?" he cries "Then strike down with a lightning bolt of despair!"

The screen fades to black, Cervantes laughing in the background, and these words appear: "With this power, he has reached the realm of the gods. The grim mythology has just started."
