@Klimat I agree and disagree with you:
I don't think anyone can really deny the connection, at this point. Viola was literally in the orb, as was mentioned above, and Amy has already begun to lose some of her memories. It will be interesting to see how the Viola/Raphmare story plays out, if Azwel will stick around to see it, or if he will be overthrown and the strings to his puppets cut, and they're lost and must find each other. I guess we'll find out in SoulCalibur VII.
I really didn't read into this at all. It seems like to me that Amy told Maelys to shove off and left to find Raphael on her own. The ending art suggests this, as it only shows Amy and Raphael. If she had agreed to hire a guard and travel with Maelys, I feel like the ending art would have been Amy setting off on her journey, party in tow, as a beginning of an adventure. It's possible I suppose, but I don't buy it.
Simple fix for that, don't lose.I love playing as her so far but god, her death cry is awful
