Biography: Soul Calibur IV(top)A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....
He was raised in secret as the apprentice of Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith. His father was a Jedi Knight, so the Apprentice possessed immeasurable potential. Darth Vader saw his natural aptitude and raised him as his apprentice. The harsh training promoted fear and hatred. He became the Dark Lord's shadow, performing secret missions at his behest. Upon completion of another mission, the Apprentice was given a new order.
A gate to another dimension was about to open in space. He was ordered to act as a vanguard and identify the wave of power that was causing the disturbance. Upon reaching the area of space in question and confirming the dimensional tear, the Apprentice waited to see if it would become a stable passageway. The wave of power grew stronger right before his eyes, and the distortion widened until it became a clearly distinguishable hole in space. When the dimensional portal opened, the Apprentice entered without hesitation. There, in that other galaxy, he encounters two swords that possess opposing powers.
Ending(top)The Apprentice strikes down Algol and returns to Darth Vader without Soul Edge or Soul Calibur, having deemed both swords to be of no value. Angered by his Apprentice's judgment, Vader chokes him with the Force, prompting the Apprentice to reach for his lightsaber. Sensing this act of defiance, Vader releases him, and they both draw their lightsabers to duel. The text-only epilogue then says How he lived and where he traveled from there, is a story for another day.
Tournament Controversy(top)Darth Vader, Yoda, and The Apprentice (along with Algol and guest characters) are banned in France due to not "fitting" into the game's story.
