Revenant (レブナント, Rebunanto) is a character in Namco's Soul series of fighting games. He is a generic thug in Soul Calibur III's Tales of Souls mode and an unlockable bonus character as well. He represents the "Wave Sword" Create-a-Fighter discipline.
Revenant grew up in the underworld, striving everyday for survival doing whatever he could. Eventually he turned into an Assassin and trained his skills non-stop until he became the most known and feared assassin. He was so well-known that nobody would ever think of betrayal, for he killed those who dared to betray or control him. For that, he was always alone.
But eventually he grew old and weak, and those who once feared him dwindled in numbers. Then one day a youth with a scythe and a golden eye fought and killed him. As the young man's scythe ripped into his body, he caught sight of his killer's gold eye and remembered an old man, believed to be a magician, that he had slain many years before. He concluded, somehow, that man and the youth were the same person.
10 years later, that same youth, Zasalamel, revived the bone remains of the assassin and turned him into a faithful Revenant. Revenant works as an enforcer of Zasalamel, even if deep inside he believes that, once Zasalamel achieves his goal, he would be free.
