         Note: This FAQ is primarily based on the first arcade
         version of Soul Calibur 2, not the second Ver.D arcade
         version or the GameCube/PlayStation 2/Xbox version. I
         don't have a DC, GC, PS, PS2, SS, or XB anyway.
         Also, I'll not mind if the writers of other SC2
         character FAQs borrow the flexible layout of this FAQ.

    all chara's quotes are in Japanese. But in the international

    (>_<) IMO, the quotes should be dubbed in Japanese and
    subbed in English, as in the Dead or Alive series by Tecmo.

    3.1  1ST IMPRESSION
    
         [Ramble ON]
    
         This Soul Calibur 2 Cassandra FAQ is written from
    scratch, and isn't based on my Soul Calibur 1 Sophitia
    FAQ, which IMO became too inflexible and monolithic.
    
         As of 2001.12.09, the female members of the ten
    known SC2 default chara are Cassandra, Ivy, Taki, Talim,
    and Xianghua. But I'll not be surprised that SC2 has
    hidden or time-release chara, and they include Sophitia and
    Seung Mina.
    
         About Nemea, the namesake of Cassandra's shield.
         Nemea was a valley between the cities Kleonai and
    Phlius. Killing the Lion of Nemea that terrorised the
    citizens of Kleonai and Phlius was the first of
    Herakles's (Roman "Hercules", USAF "C-130") 12 Great Deeds
    (or Legendary Deeds) assigned by King Eurystheus of Tiryns.
    The Lion was a male offspring of Echidna the serpent-woman
    and Typhon the serpent-dragon under Mount Etna.
         When Herakles tracked and found the Lion, his
    arrows and club were ineffective against it. (This was
    before he, with Iolaus's assistance, killed the Hydra and
    acquired poisoned arrows.) He eventually chased the Lion
    into a cave with two openings, closed one opening, and
    strangled the Lion. He skinned the Lion with its claws
    (remember its skin is invulnerable to his conventional
    weapons), and wore its hide as his armour and its head
    as his helmet.
         Another variant of the legend does not mention a cave.
    Herakles was walking to one of the cities and was attacked
    by the Lion. He used his hands to break the Lion's neck.
         Herakles used the Lion's skin both as armour and as a
    decorating trophy.
         Later, Zeus uploaded the Lion to the night sky as the
    constellation Leo.
         (FYI, back in high school, I actually read Homer's
    The Iliad and The Odyssey. Between the two, my favourite
    female chara are Cassandra and Nausicaa, and my
    favourite male chara are Diomedes, Odysseus, and
    Sthenelus.)
    
         Like Sophitia in Soul Edge, and unlike the other chara
    in Soul Edge and Soul Calibur, Cassandra doesn't have years
    (or centuries) of combat experience or training. Blessed by
    the gods, she just moves and fights naturally (or
    supernaturally). Sounds like a Rentaheroine, IMO.
    
         Cassandra's voice actress, Takagi Reiko's recent works
    include the TV anime Hikaru no Go (as Waya Yoshitaka) and
    Love Hina (as Kaolla Su). I selectively watched a few
    episodes of Love Hina, including #2 and #24, only because
    Shinobu chan's mother's voice actress is Tsuru Hiromi sama.
         For comparison, in SE, SC1, and consumer versions of
    SC2, Sophitia's voice actress is Neya Michiko.

    2, typed up in Kunrei siki ro-mazi and in the format of my

         In SC2, as in SE and SC1, after the winner KO the
    loser, while the loser's falling and before the loser lands
    on the ground, the winner can humiliate the loser by
    attacking the loser.
         (I usually throw the falling loser to admire Sophie and
    Cassie's throws.)
    
         In SC2, after the winner RO the loser, the winner can
    still pounce after the loser and RO herself (the winner).
    
         For documentary purpose, I've been understandably
    watching Cassie a lot, and noticed SC2 keeps a feature WRT
    modesty that was in SC1. (Yes, I'm lifeless.)
         When Cassie's knocked down, lands face-up or face-down,
    and remains on the ground for a second, her thighs
    automatically close.
         The other SC2 female chara also have this feature. The
    male chara don't have this feature, however they land. As of
    2002.07.27, I don't know whether Charade and Inferno also
    have this feature? And I forgot whether the SE female chara
    also have this feature?
         For comparison, the female chara in VF4 and VF4 Evo,
    including Dural, also have this feature, but only when they
    land face-up.
         (All right, I'll crawl back into the woodwork now.)
    
         Hmm... Just noticed the 2D fighting game Rage of the
    Dragons, by Evoga (2002), also has a chara named Cassandra
    (B81 W57 H83).

    percentages. The damage of an attack increases when the

    5.   CASSIE STRATEGIES
    
         "The enemy inevitably attacks you under one of two
    conditions. One, when you're ready for them. Two, when
    you're not ready for them."
         - Murphy's Laws of Combat
    
         From Rev (2002.08.30):
         i'm not a cassandra player, but i do know her infinite
    (which happens to be a major glitch in the game). 44[A]. her
    recovery time from that move, which causes a major spin
    stun, is virtually none, so she can go into another one
    IMMEDIATELY. which allows you to spin stun the opponent into
    oblivion. it's pretty gay, but people use it.
    
    5.1  CASSIE COMBOS
    
         The following combos are arbitrarily translated or
    mistranslated from Japanese SC2 Cassie fan pages.
    
         From the SC2 Players Guide in the Game Watch HP (2002.07.19):
         For damage, against a standing enemy, Cassie may begin
    a combo with f,f+G+B Angel Papillon, then follow with a
    combo.
         Against a crouching enemy who's wary of the f,f+G+B,
    Cassie may begin with an df+B Airy Heaven.
         For follow-up or lunge, try d,df,f+B Angel Squash.
    Against an enemy who recovers in mid-air, try A,A,B Slide
    Flood.
    
    df+B -> d,df,f+B                             32 + 48           = 80
    
         Possible with normal hit.
    
    df+B -> d,df,f+A,B                           32 + 47           = 79
    
         Possible with normal hit. The d,df,f+A,B may miss.
    
    df+B -> A,B,B                                32 + 62           = 94
    
         Possible with normal hit. When the enemy recovers in
    mid-air, the A,B,B may miss.
    
    b,b+B -> d,df,f+B                            32 + 48           = 80
    
         Possible with normal hit. When the enemy is beyond df+B
    range.
    
    f,f+G+B -> u+K,K                             32 + 55           = 87
    
         Possible with normal hit. Can input as: after f,f+G+B
    hits and Cassie's executing the throw, hold u and repeatedly
    tap K. In some cases, the u+K,K may miss.
    
    f,f+G+B -> b,b+B+K                           32 + 43           = 75
    
         Possible with normal hit. Use when f,f+G+B -> u+K,K may
    miss, such as when the enemy is near a wall.
