Biography: Soul Blade(top)Sophitia was a girl who worked at her family bakery in Athens. She had always treasured her country's culture. She often prayed to the guardian of her town, Pallas 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. The man told her that he was the Olympian god Hephaestus, the god of smithery.
He told her about Soul Edge, and how such an evil blade would ruin his reputation and that if anybody were to find it, it would bring a lot of pain to the world. Hephaestus ordered her to come to the temple and receive a weapon, so that she could destroy the evil blade. She equipped herself and left on her journey.
Biography: Soulcalibur(top)Following an oracle from Hephaestus, Sophitia succeeded in destroying one half of Soul Edge. After recovering from her wounds she suffered from the fragments, she returned to her life of being a baker's daughter, and spent her days peacefully. However, one day Sophitia had an ominous vision of a knight in azure armour (Nightmare) and a sword of immense evil (Soul Edge). Once again, Sophitia got an oracle from Hephaestus to destroy the remaining Soul Edge. Tightly holding her sword and shield, she set out on her journey.
Biography: Soulcalibur II(top)During Sophitia's second journey she learned that someone else had destroyed Soul Edge, so she returned home to her betrothed. They were married and were blessed with a son and a daughter. They were happy until the day they encountered a particular metal fragment... Her children scrambled and fought violently over a metal shard that Rothion had gotten from a very mysterious customer. The evil aura the fragment emanated caused Sophitia's old wounds to ache.
"Had the shards of the demonic sword infected me with their dark energy before they were removed from my body?..." Sophitia thought in horror. It would explain the children's reaction to the piece of metal. Sophitia's sister, Cassandra, saw her bewildered look and ran out with the metal shard. A few weeks later, Sophitia had come to a decision. Sophitia intended to free her children from the evil swords curse, and to ensure the safe return of her sister, who had left to destroy Soul Edge on Sophitia's behalf. In Sophitia's hands were the new sword and shield that her husband Rothion had forged for her. She set off on her third journey.
Biography: Soulcalibur III(top)Following the rumours of Nightmare, Sophitia arrived at the bank of the Rhine river, overlooking Ostrheinsburg Castle. Breaking through the silence, a small girl in dark green clothes suddenly appeared from the mist and spoke to her with an innocent smile. Sophitia remained on guard and drew her weapon. She could tell that the giant ring the girl carried was a weapon. "Soul Edge isn't in the castle any more," the girl said. "Say, I'd really like to play with your children."
Sophitia attacked without a word, but the girl dodged and disappeared into the mist with a twisted giggle. "On a moonlit night, the young siblings went into a deep, dark forest. The poor siblings got lost in the mist, and were never heard from again." The girl's voice echoed in the distance, as if singing a nursery rhyme. Sophitia hurried home and was relieved to find that her family was safe. She couldn't relax, though, as she didn't know what she should do. Feeling uncertain, Sophitia headed to the temple of Hephaestus, god of the forge. But what waited at the temple was none other than the girl. Sophitia quickly picked up her sword and shield.
"Ahaha! You want to fight me? Sounds like fun!" the girl in green beamed. Blocking the girl's attacks, Sophitia looked into her eyes and saw the emptiness the girl hid in her heart. "Poor child. You've never known happiness..." Sophitia murmured. The girl froze. Her expression changed from her previous fake smile, to a look of extreme hatred. She knocked back the surprised Sophitia and took her distance. "You're so annoying... When the time comes, I'll come for your children." The girl jumped out of sight, leaving only those words behind.
For the sake of protecting the ones she loved, Sophitia steeled her resolve to eliminate the threat at the source. Though she was no longer under the guidance of the gods, she could still fight to protect her loved ones. She announced her intentions to Rothion once again, and put on her traveling clothes. "You be careful..." Rothion said to her softly. In the eyes of this woman who believed in herself and fought for those she must protect, shone a light of hope that would illuminate the future.
Biography: Soulcalibur IV(top)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. Soul Edge had grown more powerful than ever, a sinister voice whispered, and her young daughter would die without it'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 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?
