Introduction
======================================================

Hello, and welcome to my FAQ for the Soul Calibur II character known as Seung
Mina. She is my favorite character, and she's a hottie. So, I'm writing out a
character guide for her. First, let me say, Seung Mina isn't for beginners.
She's a wee bit slow with her attacks, and not all that strong, but when you
get a hold of her, she can't lay the smackdown on anyone around.

II.
======================================================
Version History
======================================================

Version 0.1 - September 29th, 2003 - I've just started this up, and right now I
just put up the basic stuff, ie- the table of contents. I will get a lot done
in a few days.

Version 0.2 - September 30th, 2003 - I just finished putting up the
introduction for pretty lil' Seung Mina. I probably won't work on anything more
tonight, but expect her profile to be put up tomorrow.

Version 0.3 - October 1st, 2003 - Added Seung Mina's profile information to the
Character FAQ, everything is going fine at the moment. No problems here.

Version 0.4 - October 1st (2nd Round), 2003 - Started on the Attacks and stuff.
This'll take awhile, ya?

Version 0.5 - October 2nd, 2003 - Still working on the attacks, I am up to
"Throws" at the moment.

Version 0.6 - October 3rd - Just a little bit more before my first version is
complete..

Version 1.0 - October 4th, 2003 - Yes, it's complete! Noice how I skipped 0.7,
0.8 and 0.9. How great. Well, I still have a bit to work on, but for now, it's
all good. Over the next few weeks, I'll check this guide over for errors, YOU,
the one reading this guide, can point out errors to me too!

Version 1.1- October 8th, 2003 - A few small flaws are fixed in here. Also, I
have given IGN the rights to this FAQ.

======================================================
ii. Biography
======================================================

Ming began training with the zanbatou at an early age and grew to be a skilled
warrior.

During that time, Lee Dynasty Korea was clamoring about the Soul Edge, known to
them as the Sword of Salvation Hwang Sung Kyung was recruited from the Seung
dojo to search for the renowned weapon.

When Mina found out about this, she disobeyed her father's orders and ran away
from home on a quest to find the sword. Unfortunately for Mina, Hwang dragged
her back home when he found her. Shortly thereafter, she was forced to restart
her arduous training.

One day, Yunsung-- who was a student at the dojo-- left with one of the Seung
family hairlooms called White Storm. Because Mina was the one who lent the
sword to him, she felt obligated to bring Yunsung and White Storm back to the
dojo.

Han Myong was resistant at first, but eventually he gave in, out of fear that
she would run away for a third time if he did not allow her to go.

By the time Han Myong realized that Mina would get involved with the search for
the Sword of Salvation once again, she was already out of the country.

======================================================
iii. Stage Profile
======================================================

Hwangseo Palace/Phoenix Court

This imperial villa is located in the outskirts of Lee Dynasty Korea. Hanyang,
the phoenix court of Hwangseo palace is renowned for it's impressive
decorations. The platform is often used for matches in the imperial presence.
Therefore, this place is the dream and goal for those who study martial arts.

Seven years previous, Hwang Sung Kyung, the leader of the Lee Sun Shin's coast
guard was given an order to search for the Soul Edge. He was likely chosen for
his performance on this very platform, where many naval officers and even
Chosen King Sonjo watched Hyong's matches.

During the Japanese invasion, all the warriors who proved their skill in this
place fought valiantly to stop the onslaught, and were feared by the Japanese
army.
