    =====================================================================
    I) Raphael
    =====================================================================
    Raphael is the most annoying character in the entire game, his quick moves
    do way too much damage and he can evade any attack while taunting his
    opponent at the same time. Though he looks like a sissy, wielding a
    rapier, he is anything but.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    A) Character Profile
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Age: 32
    Birthplace: French Empire/Rouen
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 159
    Birth Date: November 27
    Blood Type: A
    Weapon: English Sword Rapier
    Weapon Name: Flambert
    Discipline: La Rapiere des Sorel
    
    Family:
      Foster daughter - Amy
      Relatives - cut all ties
    
    
      In his quest for Soul Edge, Raphael faced off against
      Nightmare in the land of Ostrheinsburg, but lost the
      fight. Before losing consciousness, Raphael unleashed
      one last desperate strike, which pierced the center of
      Soul Edge.
    
      He should have been dead. Yet, for some reason, the
      Azure Knight had left without delivering the final
      blow. He recieved treatment back at his mansion, but
      soon realized that he had been infected by the evil
      sword's energy. Although he still had his sanity, he was
      clearly no longer human. Amy also became infected
      while treating his injuries.
    
      Raphael escaped with Amy to a distant land in eastern
      Europe, where they took shelter in a castle ruin that
      stood in the mountains.
    
      Amy had been transformed into a being that could not
      interact with the normal world. Raphael decided that
      he would change the world for her. His plan, woven
      from threads of madness, proceeded slowly but surely,
      infecting nearby lands with evil energy.
    
      But one day, an incident occurred in which some
      people who had been transformed to evil returned to
      normal by the power of a "Holy Stone." Threatened by
      this object, Raphael decided to go on a journey to
      discover the true nature of the "Holy Stone" and
      obliterate it from this world.
    
      Just as he made his decision, an army appeared at the
      base of the castle. They had noticed the abnormality
      of the area and come to attack its source. He would
      need to drive off these fools, first.
    
      "Amy, I won't be back for a while. Be a good girl while
      I'm gone." Raphael bid farewell to his beloved Amy and
      descended below to the world that refused to accept
      them. The expression on the face of the reticent girl
      who watched him leave said nothing of what lay
      hidden in her heart.

    D) Attack Chains
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    For those who know my guides, I like to add a list of some mean combos
    I discover for whichever character I do. Below is a gathering of high
    damage or workable combos Raphael can offer. Some may be a bit spicy to
    pull off, but "timing is key"... right.
    
    NOTE: All this was done using his Flamberg, so this is base damage.
    
    
    
    r+B B (B), B (95)
    
    B+K, if he evades A+G (50)
    
    rr+A+B, kick mid-air opponent, d+l+B B (88)
    
    r+K, if stuns r+B+K, dd A+B (82)
    
    r+K, if stuns d+l+K, d+l+B B, q+r B (122)
    
    rr+(B), K, l+(B), grab (133)
    
    rr+(A), B, q+l B (137)
    
    to any downed opponent d+l+B B (30)

    II) Tales of Souls
    =====================================================================
    This section shows you the paths and outcomes of Raphael's Tales of Souls
    thing in the game. You may encounter an abnormal outcome just out of the blue
    in the storyline, because there's some hidden condition like ringing out
    or not ringing out your opponent or whatnot.

    BBB) Frequently Asked Questions
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q: If Raphael is French, then how does he know English fighting styles?
    
    A: Because he's cool.
    
    
    
    Q: Doesn't it seem like Rapheal's and Amy's relations are a little more
       than foster father and daughter?
    
    A: ...Sure... or maybe he just really truly does care for her.
    
    
    
    Q: How did Talim become his rival? Wasn't it Nightmare and Siegfried?
    
    A: I would of thought so, but apparently not.
