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

Hello, and welcome to my FAQ for the Soul Calibur II character known as
Sophitia. Whereas she isn't my favorite character, she is up there with Seung
Mina (Who is a total babe!). Anyway, Sophitia was in the first Soul Calibur, and
was pretty good. She seems about the same as she did in the first one.

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

Version 0.2 - September 29th, 2003 - Just got this guide going, along with
another one for Seung Mina.

Version 0.4 - September 30th, 2003 - Intro is up, and thats really about it. I
will get more stuff up eventually, but working on two guides is sorta hard.

Version 0.6 - October 1st, 2003 - Added Sophitia's profile information to the
Character FAQ. Other than that, everything is going fine, a little hard with
school, but I'm fine.

Version 0.8 - October 2nd, 2003 - Just starting on the attacks. I'm not all that
far, and I'm probably further on my other guide.

Version 0.9 - October 3rd - Joy! Just a small bit longer until my first version
is complete! Yay. Let us all celebrate with the adding of chocolate to the milk.

Version 1.0 - October 7th, 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 - Just a small little update. I changed a few
minor things to you probably won't notice. Basically, I just gave rights to IGN
to post this FAQ.

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

Sophitia was the eldest daughter of a baker. Her life was rather ordinary until
the day she received an oracle from Haphaestus, the God of fire and forge, to
destroy an evil sword called Soul Edge.

The divine words of Haphaestus led Sophitia on two journeys. The first time, she
succeeded in destroying one half of the Soul Edge, but received grave injuries
by the flying shards of the shattered blade. The second quest took place a few
years later when she learned that the remaining Soul Edge continued to wreak
havoc.

During the second journey, Sophitia found that someone else had destroyed the
demonic sword, and so she returned home to Rothion, her betrothed. They married
shortly thereafter and were blessed with two children. They led a happy life
until the day they encountered a particular metal fragment.

Her children scrambled and fought violently over a metal shard that Rothion
received from a mysterious customer. The evil aura the fragment emanated caused
Sophitia's old wounds to ache.

''Had the shards of the demonic sword infected me with their dark energy before
they were removed from my body?'' Sophitia thought in horror. But that would
explain her children's frenzied reaction over that piece of metal.

Sophitia's young sister, Cassandra, saw her bewildered reaction, and ran out
with the metal shard. A few weeks passed before Sophitia made up her mind.

Sophitia intended to free her children from the evil sword's curse and insure
the safe return of her sister, who had left on a journey to destroy Soul Edge on
Sophitia's behalf.

In Sophitia's hands were the new sword and shield that her beloved husband had
forged for her.

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

Eurydice Shrine Gallery

This shrine is built high up a snow-covered mountain that is as beautiful as it
is harsh. The scale of this temple is such that it is easy to believe that
Olympian once dwelled in this place.

Legends say Hephaestus, the God of fire and forge, built the main shrine on top
of the summit. This is evidenced by the stairway that leads up to the shrine--
the enormous steps are impossible for mortals to climb. Humans built this
gallery around the giant stairway for their priests' use.

In one corner of this meticulously built gallery is the place where a black-
smith couple gave an offering of a sword and a shield to Hephaestus.

The arms have disappeared from the altar, however. Who could have taken them?

-Ask a question already answered in the guide.

-E-mail me just to bash my guide. If can do better, write one yourself.

-Not title it about Metal Gear Solid. If it's titled 'Hi' or something, I most
likely will delete it because I'll assume its porno or something. Besides, if I
want pr0n, I can get it for free.

-Bash anyone in the game. That's just annoying.
