-------------------------------------------
A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
-------------------------------------------
  This F.A.Q. is only for the weapons. So if anybody have anything to add,
please do so. Otherwise... do not bother.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Ivy (Isabella Valentine)
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Ivy Blade
------------

  Ivy's Snake Sword called Ivy Blade has the ability to expand and contract at
will.

  Ivy researched countless weapons to find one that was suitable for her quest
to destroy Soul Adge. Based upon an Asian multi-segmented whip, her sword came
to life by Nightmare's touch. Armed with this weapon, she embarked on her quest.

  But little did she know that Ivy Blade brought to life by the power of Soul
Edge, the same sword she sought to destroy. She also remained ignorant of the
fact that her own bloodline served to strengthen the sword.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Cervantes de Leon
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Archeron & Nirvana
------------

  Acheron and Nirvana were the long sword and pistol sword, respectively, of
the resurrected pirate Cervantes. These implements of destruction were probably
booty from his pirate days, recovered by Cervantes from his beloved ship the
"Adrian."

  Nirvana was an unusual sword that contained a pistol in its hilt. This was
perfectly suited to Cervantes and his intimidating fighting style. However,
after tasting the power of Soul Edge, his weapons paled in comparison and left
much to be desired.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Nightmare
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Soul Edge
------------

  Soul Edge is the legendary sword of Nightmare.

  To some, it was the Hero's Sword," and to others, the "Sword of Immortality."
Although the details of his legendary sword changed as its rumor traveled
around the world, its true nature was unmistakably evil.

  Nightmare was said to be a young warrior who was corrupted by taking
possession of Soul Edge. The evil sword had a will of its own, and it
transformed itself into a gigantic sword that would make the best use of the
warrior's fighting experience.

  Its single eye appeared enraptured whenever the grotesquely shaped sword was
bathed in blood. The demonic blade manipulated its bearer to commit atrocities
so that it could consume the souls of the innocent. Soul Edge's true purpose
and intent remains to be discovered.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Voldo
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Shame & Blame
------------

  Shame and Blame are the names of Voldo's twin Katars.

  Vercii collected treasures from every corner of the world and believed that
he had everything that was worth collecting. His enormous treasure trove
included many rare foreign curiosities. Verrci favored the Katars that were
brought back from India as weapons. Shame and Blame are one of the tens of
Katar types stored in the Money Pit. Even after Vercci's death, these weapons
were used to hunt down robbers and adventures who ventured into the Money Pit.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Astaroth
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Kulutues
------------

  The grand priest Kunpaetku of the heretical order Fygul Cestemus made
Astaroth's giant ax called Kulutues. The grand priest used many invocations to
create this giant ax; which Astaroth took on his quest to find Soul Edge.
Astaroth used Kulutues (which means "Merciless Destroyer" in the ancient
language of the order), during his rampages.

  The souls taken by Kulutues served to feed the never-ending hunger of
Nightmare's Soul Edge. Once Soul Edge was full of souls, it would be taken to
Astaroth's true master Palgae, the God of evil, to bring forth the Apocalypse.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Heishiro Mitsurugi
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Shishi-oh
------------

  Shishi-oh is the name of Mitsurugi's katana.

  Mitsurugi was soundly defeated and disgraced in front of his lord by a
rifleman bearing the Tanegashima rifle during an exhibition duel. This defeat
was the catalyst that forced him to perfect his swordsmanship and seek a weapon
strong enough to defeat the rifle.

  During his intensive training, he became dissatisfied with his old sword
Korefuji and replaced it with Shishi-oh, a katana with longer and wider blade.
Mitsurugi perfected many new sword fighting moves to defeat the rifle with
Shishi-oh, the Relic being just one of them.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Taki
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Rekki-Maru & Mekki-Maru
------------

  Taki made her own weapons and protective gear partly out of need and partly
as a hobby. Taki created her most prized possession Rekki-Maru by incorporating
supernatural powers in its blade. For Taki, it proved time and again to be a
valuable partner to her work of slaying demons.

  On the other hand, Mekki-Maru was a sword cloaked in mystery. Ever since it
was fused with a fragment of Soul Edge, the sword emanated an evil aura
whenever withdrawn from its protective scabbard. Because of this, even Taki
handled it with caution. In any event, she would surely find a way to subjugate
into obedience this sword of unmeasured potenial.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kilik
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Kali-Yuga (rod) & Dvapara-Yuga (mirror)
------------

  Kilik's Kali-Yuga and the Dvapara-Yuga were two of Ling-Sheng Su Temple's
three sacred treasures. When the Evil Seed corrupted Kilik and Kali-Yuga with
evil, the Dvapara-Yuga's power, along with Kilik's inner strength, were the
only things that kept him from being completely possessed by evil.

  If Kali-Yuga had fallen into the hands of someone else, this would have meant
the creation of another weapon like Soul Edge.

  Equipped with the rod that took the life of his sworn sister, and the mirror
that she gave him along with her life, Kilik departed for the West to find
answers for himself.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Maxi
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Fatibal
------------

  Fatibal is the name of Maxi's wooden nunchaku made by Yagazzi, one of Maxi's
pirate crewmen. Yagazzi made and improved many nunchakus out of necessity for
Maxi, since Maxi kept breaking them in battle.

  Through trial and error, Yagazzi learned that using Balisanda wood enaabled
him to make a nunchaku that was strong and durable. This discovery resulted in
the creation of Fatibal. Fatibal was perfectly suited for Maxi, since it could
handle his extraordinary strength and the special characteristics of his
Shissen Karihadi style of fighting.

  Each handle of the nunchaku were given the names, Kochi (East Wind) and Hae
(South Wind).

=======================================================

-----
Name: Chai Xianghua
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Krita-Yuga
------------

  Xianghua's treasure was her mother's keepsake Chinese Sword. Whenever
Xianghua gazed upon the Krita-Yuga, she recalled her mother's final words: "You
were born to complete an important task... cut your path through uncertain
future!"

  With her treasured sword in hand, Xianghua embarked on her quest, feeling the
invisible forces of destiny pushing her onward.

  The Krita-Yuga, along with Kali-Yuga and Dvapara formed and treasured trinity
of the Ling Sheng Su Temple. Separated for over 10 years, surely something
momentous would come to pass when the three treasures were brought together
again.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Yoshimitsu
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Yoshimitsu
------------

  Yoshimitsu's beloved self-named katana was handed down through many
generations of famed Manji clan. At first glance, the sword appears to be just
another katana, but ut has many unique features that accommodated the Manji
clan's unique martial arts style. Because of this, no one outside of the clane
could replicate it.

  One day, a feudal lord wiped out the entire clan and deprived Yoshimitsu of
his home and family. Thus, Yoshimitsu swore an oath of vengeace upon the last
remaining sword of his clan.

  Years later after its confrontation with Soul Edge, this sword took on a
mysterious glow and became a supernatural weapon for the champion of the poor
and weak.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Sophitia Alexandra
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Omega Sword & Elk Shield
------------

  The Omega Sword and Elk Shield are the short sword and small shield used by
Sophitia.

  Rothion, Sophitia's betrothed and swordsmith, forged both the sword and
shield using sacred iron bequeathed from Hepaestus. With Sophitia's oracle in
his thoughts, Rothion put his heart and soul into forging this sword and shield.

  These weapons served to protect Sophitia from the malice of Soul Edge as well
as to guide her during her quest. Whenever Sophitia used these weapons, Rothion
was always alongside her spirit during her trials and tribulations.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Seung Mina
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Scarlet Thunder
------------

  Scarlet Thunder is the name of Seung Mina's Zamba-toh.

  Mina's Zamba-toh is one of the weapons passed down through many generations
of the Seung family. Mina played with this large blade every since she was a
toddler, so despite its considerable weight, she was able to weild it easily
and took it with her when she ran away from home for the second time.

  Mina combined the rod style taught to her by Kong Xiuqiang with her own
individual style and thus armed, she departed to search for the "Sword of
Salvation" as a way to prove her independence. Do the thoughts and prayers of
her father and Hwang reach this headstrong girl?

=======================================================

-----
Name: Siegfried Schtauffen
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Requiem
------------

  Requiem is the name of Siegfried's Zweihander sword.

  After freeing himself from the Soul Edge's evil curse, Siegfried armed
himself with a new Zweihander sword named Requiem and embarked on a journey of
atonement. The deathblow Siegfried dealt when slaying demonic monsters was
fueled by his need and zeal to distance himself from his cursed past. He
traveled the lonesome path of redemption to save his soul, but would he ever
find peace within his soul?

=======================================================

-----
Name: Hwang Sung Kyung
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Blue Thunder
------------

  Hwang's Chinese sword, was given to him by Admiral Lee Sun Shin, as Hwang
embarked on his new quest. This sword was originally given to the Admiral in
his youth by Seung Han Myong, who descended from a clan famous for their
military skills and now trains Hwang as his master.

  When Hwang was given this weapon, the true intent of the Admiral's orders was
not tost on him. Although he was told to search for the "Sword of Salvation,"
his true mission was to find the headstrong runaway Seung Mina.

  Armed with the weapon of his country's hero, Hwang immediately departed for
the West again. What was in store for him beyond the desert snads?

=======================================================

-----
Name: Rock
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Apocalypse
------------

  Apocalypse is the name of Rock's immense battle ax.

  Rock had to battle wild beats from time to time in order to protect himself
and his adopted son Bangoo. Rock wore fur out of respect for the courageous
beasts that shared the wilderness with him.

  The sound of Apocalypse slashing through the air is a tell-tale sign of Rock
engaged in a life-or-death struggle.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Lizardman
-----

------------
Weapon Name: Xi Sword & Game Shield
------------

  The Xi Sword and Game Shield are the names of Lizardman's short sword and
small shield.

  Before Aeon Calcos was transformed into Lizardman, like Sophitia, he received
an oracle from Hephaestus to destroy Soul Edge as well as these sacred
implements of battle.

  Although both sword and shield are without a doubt sacred in origin, it
ramains to be seen whether they retain their holy power, given Aeon's fate.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Edge Master
-----

------------
Weapon Name: All Weapons
------------

  Although Edge Master could wield all weapons skillfully as if they were
extensions of his limbs, his philosophy was that they were more tools,
regardless of their power. This was due to his core belief that it was a strong
soul, and not a weapon that made a strong warrior.

  Although Edge Master made all of his weapons, none of them bear names in
accordance with his philosophy.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Inferno
-----

------------
Weapon Name: All Weapons
------------

  Inferno was the embodiment of Soul Edge, and memories of the warriors it
defeated were crystallized within it. Inferno used the warriors' memories and
incorporated them into its own style of fighting. Inferno was even able to
create weapons from memory and form them from its body.

  The anguish of defeated warriors fueled the brilliance of Inferno's
disturbing crimson flames. When Inferno's weapon becomes enveloped with that
flame, the world would know the meaning of true fear and despair.
