Soul Blade Edit
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.
Soul Calibur Edit
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.
Soul Calibur 2 Edit
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...
Soul Calibur 3 Edit
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.
Soul Calibur 4 Edit
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?
Soul Blade Edit
Sophitia destroys the evil swords, and then sees Hephaestus. He tells her that's she done well. Sophitia then asks him to heal all the people she had hurt during her fights, but he tells her that they are already healed, and that they've forgotten all about what happened. He then takes her weapons and tells her to rest. . .
Sophitia, without her armor, walks through a forest, with the birds singing and landing on her.
Sophitia is in her swimsuit, bathing in a lake in the forest. She hears something, and then splashes at the camera. The screen then fogs up.
Soul Calibur Edit
After fulfilling the sacred duty entrusted upon her by Hephaestus, Sophitia returned home to her betrothed.
Sophitia: Rothion, I...
Rothion: I understand, Sophie.
The long delayed wedding took place at last with the blessings of the townspeople. Time passed and Sophitia was blessed with the birth of her child.
Sophitia: Though I can no longer hear the voices of the Gods, perhaps my child can.
The child smiled back as if in reply to her words.
Soul Calibur 2 Edit
It was not another journey ordained by another, but rather she chose for herself. With the holy light guiding her blade, Sophitia cut through the repugnant darkness. Having saved her children from the fate of the evil blade, Sophitia's long journey came to an end. The light surrounding her revealed her smiling face, shining with maternal love.
Soul Calibur 3 Edit
Sophitia steps up to Soul Edge, and with one mighty strike, shatters it as she shouts "This is... the end!". Bits of light will then fly and fade into the sky. Sophitia says "I must go back... I must protect my children's future" before the screen fades to black. The Eurydice Shrine is now shown, with Cassandra waiting in front of the statue of Hephaestus. Sophitia calls out her name, and the two sisters run up and hug each other. Cassandra then tells her "Sister, don't go anywhere anymore".
Tira is shown at the top of the shrine, spying on the two sisters. "I guess I'll take care of them before she returns." Tira says. Sophitia then looks up at the top of the shrine after thinking she heard a noise, but nothing is there. Tira is nowhere to be found. Cassandra asks, "What's wrong?" Sophitia answers, "Oh... it's nothing." The two sisters then walk away.
No Input Edit
Sophitia replies, "I know." She then looks up at Hephaestus and says "Gods, please watch over us." "What's wrong?" Cassandra asks. "Oh... it's nothing." Sophitia replies.
Soul Calibur 4 Edit
Sophitia picks up Soul Edge and holds it high above her head, ready to strike Soul Calibur, saying, "Once I destroy this, my child will no longer be threatened." Suddenly, Soul Edge begins to glow. "Why do you hesitate?" it asks, as Sophitia is brought to her knees in pain. "Maybe I'll eat you first!" 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.
Critical Finish Edit
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 Edit
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 a little, and then she hits the opponent in a jump. It always leads to a Guard Burst, if the opponent is guarding. This mid-range attack doesn't stun the opponent and sends him 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. It also can make the opponent hit the wall. Although, after performing this single strike Sophitia can't do anything for a while. This can be dangerous in case this vertical attack misses or 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-range 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 quick and safe, as Sophita avoids all coming attacks of the opponent during it, but it can be side-stepped, so it's better to use this Weapon Art in combo, when the opponent is lying on the ground or thrown high into the air. However, it's impossible to create a combo after it. Regardless of the opponent's position, it will work the same way. If it misses, or opponent is guarding, only the first attack will be performed. If it's blocked, Sophitia will bounce off the opponent, creating too much distance for him to punish you. It cannot make the opponent hit the wall, but can be used to continue a wall combo. Under certain circumstances the second and the third hits may miss occasionally.
Jupiter Storm: This is basically Elysium's Critical Edge called Eleusian Initiation. Sophitia quickly turns around in animation, lowering her sword for a second, as she says "I cannot lose". Then she slowly raises her shield and sword, saying "Ah... Gods", meanwhile the opponent is hit twelve times by the unseen light force, and the last of the hits make the blowing sound. There are some white sparkles and the fade rainbow light around Sophitia during the animation, and when she starts attacking she emits large circles of light. The enemy is surrounded by the light as well. It is a very efficient Weapon Art, as it starts attacking immediately after pressing, having no chances to be stopped, it's easy to create a combo after and before it, because it'll work anytime the opponent isn't guarding, and can be performed at any distance. If the opponent is attacked in the air, the last hit makes him fly even higher, without being stunned, which enables you to keep beating him after the Weapon Art. Otherwise, while standing or lying, the opponent will be stunned, but you still will be able to add some more attacks. It can't hit the opponent against the wall, but if he's already hit against it, the attack will work nicely. In case the opponent is guarding, you can't be punished after performing Jupiter Storm, owing to the last blowing attack, which knocks the opponent back.
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 slowly drawing her sword back and to the left, before landing the first mid-range horizontal attack, that is most likely the same as the first strike of her Critical Finish in SC4. 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, jumping backwards in slow motion, while the turned away opponent, as he's falling down. The last strike is delivered, 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 a wall combo. Of course, it misses in case the opponent is lying on the ground. You can also hit the opponent in the air, but don't hope to do a lot of damage, as the first two strikes will hit, but the last animated devastating attack can only be performed on standing opponent. After these two attack made in the mid-air, the opponent won't be stunned and you'll have enough time to deliver Seraphim Strike or even Olympus Cannon as a guaranteed combo. In the full version of the move you won't be able to create any combo after the Weapon Art, because of the last stunning strike, which will never make the opponent hit the wall or stun him for a long time. By the way, if the first attack misses, Sophitia doesn't continue attacking, but if the opponent is guarding, the second one, which also is a mid-range attack, will be performed and if it catches him off guard , the third strike will take place.
