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

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

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

  "But... it can't be..."

  Through her battles, her permonitions proved to be true. Although evil had
been destroyed, the sword would not die. The cursed blood that flowed through
her veins was the sword's life source. However she felt no hesitation in coming
to terms with the truth.

  "I feel as though a burden on my soul had been lifted..."

  The fetters on her curse were broken and thus began a new unholy quest.

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

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

  The long lost sword... and his onetime master. He reached toward the demon
sword, now without a host, and the two and the two became one once again. A
long figure appeared, clawing his way through the eternal flames of evil.
Regaining a lost part of himself, his memories came flooding back and the
broken chain was now complete again.

  His ship appeared fear across the seas once more as even the warships of the
great naval powers were sent down to their watery graves.

  "Raise the another and make sail, me hardies! Cervantes de Leon sails again!"

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

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

  The time had come... with countless souls stolen from brave warriors, the
evil sword now transformed into an apparition of his father.

Frederick: Siegfried, my dear son...
Siegfried F... father...!

Frederick: Pierce me with this sword.
Siegfried: What?!

Frederick: I'm nothing more than an illusion. Reflect back upon your sins and
repent.

  Standing before his father's grave, he whispered to himself, "Is redemption
possible?" And so he embarked upon a journey with atonement at his cross to
bear, embracing within his heart the last wishes of his father.

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

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

  The moment he grasped the evil sword, a flood of evil energy coursed through
Voldo's body and made him writhe to agony.

  "Entrust your soul to the sword..." A familiar voice echoed in his mind. As
he gave in to the power of the sword, the pain dissolved miraculously and his
memory along with his youth returned.

  The image of his dead master was reflected in his eyes, now wide open. His
master's wish was finally fulfilled, as was his. In the empty solitary darkness
of this place, he found eternal bliss.

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

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

  Astaroth returned before the grand priest Kunpaetku with Soul Edge in hand.

Kunpaetku: Astaroth, you have done well. Now the power that surpasses the Gods
is mine!

  Suddenly, Astaroth grabs Kunpaetku...

Kunpaetku: What... are you doing! No, unhand me! Stop! STOP!
Astaroth: Need... more... souls...

  Engulfed in crimson fellfire, the two figures eventually fade from view. What
were Astaroth's true intentions? There is no way to know...

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

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

  After countless battles, the demonic blade Soul Edge was in Mitsurugi's
hands. En route back to his homeland, pirates attacked him on the high seas.
Mitsurugi was completely surrounded by the bloodthirsty pirates. He smiled
without fear as he looked down the barrels of their guns and murmured...

Mitsurugi: I've had enough of duels... you're just what I need to try the blade
of my new sword...

  This was the last anyone heard of the lone samurai known as the "Mercenary in
the Wartime Age."

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

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

Taki: Evil... begone!

  Taki's cry and Mekki-Maru both pierced through Inferno. Taki wielded
Mekki-Maru at her well, which bore the same evil as Inferno. But the faint
resonance of Mekki-Maru along with the doubt in her heart would not stop.

Taki: So there is no end to this?

  Yet surely she will triumph somehow... and repeat her favorite line, "Demon
slain, the deed is done."

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

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

  Despite losing its physical form, the demonic blade still burned fiercely and
prepared to scatter itself throughout the world again.

  Kilik chanted quietly but with resolve, "Om Vajradharma Kilik." The
Dvapara-Yuga that protected him split apart and extingushied the evil flames.
Over the course of many intense battles, Kilik mastered the skill to tame the
evil within him. Not one to rest on his laurels, Kilik subjects himself to more
intensive training.

  Here, at the place where heaven and earth meet, his eyes reflect nothing but
the clear blue of the boundless sky.

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

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

  The price of defeating evil was high.

Maxi: Heh... what took you so long?
Kilik: No! This can't be!

Maxi: This is... the end of the line for me... and... Ki... lik...
Kilik: Maxi!!

  Kilik was without words, and Xianghua looked on quietly. The winds blew and
the clouds moved on as if they were oblivious to their mortal plight.

  "It's been fun..." The clouds seemed to whisper in his voice.

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

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

  The Krita-Yuga she wielded revealed its true form as if it heeded the call of
destiny. The sword gave her unparalleled strength and in return, Xianghua
channeled her pure spirit through it. The interminable battle came to a close
with Xianghua's victory.

  The brooding clouds that covered the firmament until now broke apart to
reveal shafts of sunlight from above.

Xianghua: Mother... was this the destiny I was meant to fulfill?

  She narrowed her eyes as the brillient sunlight crosses her innocent,
childlike face...

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

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

Yoshimitsu: Taste the steel of my blade, demon!

  With flash of his katana, Yoshimitsu destroys the evil sword. At that moment,
lighting from the evil sword struck his beloved katana, and it became the host
of a ghostly glow.

Yoshimitsu: Has my sword been possessed by evil? Never!! This I shall not allow!

  "Honor is reflected in one's deeds. Inaction bespeaks of cowardice." And thus
Yoshimitsu became a protector of the poor. Eventually, his name became known
throughout the land, and valiant men came to gather under his name.

  Yoshimitsu the First became the head of a band of chivalrous thieves, and his
name continues to live on to this day.

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

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

  After fulfilling the sacred duty entrusted upon her by Hephaestus, Sophitia
returned home to her betrothed.

Sophitia: Rothion, I...
Rothion: I understand, Sophie.

  The long delayed wedding took place at last with the blessings of the
townspeople. Time passed and Sophitia was blessed with the birth of her child.

Sophitia: Though I can no longer hear the voices of the Gods, perhaps my child
can.

  The child smiled back as if in reply to her words.

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

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

  Mina used every ounce of strength left on her to defeat the final enemy.
Exhausted, she was about to collapse when...

Hwang: Don't you have a homeland to save?
Seung Mina: Oh... Hwang...

  Her cheeks reddened and though she struggled, she lacked the strength to
escape from his strong arms.

  Upon returning home, Mina found a far more dangerous enemy waiting for her.
The idiot son of the Kim family proposed.

Son of Kim: Hey, let's get hitched. I've even brought a gift of a hundred
cattle as a sign of my love for you!
Seung Mina: Hmmm... maybe I should run away again...

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

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

  There was nothing to stand in the way of the wind that cut through this
valley. The evil within him had been exorcised, and now the warrior cast his
eyes upon the windblown valley.

  His childhood memories, the valiant figure of his father, the beginning of
his madness, and the Schwarzwind (Black Wind).

Man: Siegfried, where have you been for the last three years?
Siegfried: I shall tell you about it someday.

  Familiar faces, new faces... it seemed the Schwarzwind was alive and well.

Siegfried: Demons are on the attack! Prepare to fight, men!

  And thus a new wind began to blow...

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

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

  One legend spoke of the "Sword of Salvation" as being in truth an evil sword
that drove souls insane. Injured during a fight with Inferno, the incarnation
of the sword, Mina came to his aid.

Seung Mina: You can depend on me now.
Hwang: Indeed... thank you. We need not rely on legends anymore, for we shall
protect our country ourselves.

  The zealous patriots depart for the seas of unrest to protect their country
and their people. Their stories will surely be retold with pride to future
genarations.

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

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

  At the end of the fierce battle, Rock finally rescued Bangoo and returned
back to their homeland in the wilderness. Although he staggered a little,
Bangoo lifted Rock's ax high.

Bangoo: See, I'll be okay Rock. I can take care of myself from now on.

  With the passing of time, Bangoo became a strong young man. He would recall
Rock's words whenever he saw a large cloud in the vast blue sky.

Rock: You'll leave someday on a quest of your own, to find your true soul for
yourself.

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

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

  Inferno disappeared into the infinite darkness with countless lost souls. The
overwhelming power, the pure insanity, and the temptation for destruction...

  Injured during the violent struggle, Lizardman devoted himself to madness.
With a hideous roar, Lizardman expressed his lust for more destruction and
carnage.

  Other monstrous abominations gathered under the moonlight as if summoned by
his roar. And so the cold-blooded legion led by Lizardman began the hunt for
their next prey...

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

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

Edge Master: It's been a long, hard trip, and it's good to be back at last.
Seems like Kilik is ready to take the test. Kilik!
Kilik: Yes master.

Edge Master: Wait right here.

  Edge Master suddenly attacks Kilik while he is in his youth (or evil?)
appearance...

Kilik: Master... you've become...!!
Edge Master: I shall teach you the art of mastering the evil within you by
using evil itself! Prepare yourself Kilik, defeat me if you can. Are you
ready?! KAAAAAAH!!

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

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

  A pillar of light pierced through the clouds to herald the event. A powerful
sword capable of destroying evil, as if in opposition to the surging evil.

  For the demon sword seeking stronger souls to consume, it became the ultimate
source of power. The Krita-Yuga was consumed by a wave of evil, and a new sword
of chaos was born.

  Inferno's cry of joy reverberated as if to reach the entire world. All hope
was lost... and now an era of darkness is about to begin...
