    3.	Introduction
    Welcome to Cervantes' Guide. Soul Calibur II came out with a bang in late 
    August. Players rushed to the stores to buy it. I'm here today to add 
    Cervantes Moves to that long list of move lists. Cervantes is my favorite 
    character, and I'd like to share with him how dominant he can be in SCII.
    Strengths: Cervantes is a powerhouse. Most of his moves are focused on power 
    rather then agility. I've been able to take out many enemies in about 3 
    seconds using powerful combos along with powerful weapons.
    Weakness: While he excels in power, he's pretty slow. Talim can run circles 
    around him (but that doesn't mean she's better). You'll have to move quickly 
    as you can if you face a fast character.
    4.	Cervantes Profile (from the game)
    Name: Cervantes de Leon
    Age: 48 (Aging has stopped)
    Birthplace: Valencia, Spanish Empire
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 176 lbs.
    Birth Date: January 1
    Blood Type: None
    Weapon: Soul Edge (Long sword type) & Pistol Sword
    Weapon Name: Soul Edge & Nirvana
    Discipline: Memories of Soul Edge
    Family: Father/Killed in battle
            His Crew/Slaughtered by his own hands
      Under the influence of Soul Edge, the dead pirate Cervantes slaughtered his
    entire crew and fed off of souls of swordsmen whom dared to venture forth to
    challenge him.
      But one day, a holy warrior sent by God destroyed one of the demonic blades,
    and Cervantes' body was consumed by hellfire.
      His soul, however, was not freed by the destruction of his corporeal form.
    The pieces of Soul Edge buried in his body resurrected Cervantes.
      He had lost the most of his memory, but it eventually came flooding back. 
    with his memories came back the desire to possess that great power once again.
    Although he recalled the loss of his free will to the power, it still appealed
    to him. Cervantes began to seek the fragments of the sword, only to realize
    that the second sword had been shattered as well.
      He picked up several pieces of the newly created shards and gazed upon them.
    Was his desire to possess that power again for naught? That was when Cervantes
    sensed something strange. Two pieces of the sword in his palm began to resonate
    with his body and began to melt into one.
      Four years passed. He took souls of the strong and found new pieces of the
    sword to increase the power of Soul Edge. In time, the fragments assumed the
    shape of a sword and began to emanate an evil aura.
      His ultimate goal was the revival of Soul Edge. To accomplish his goal, he
    needed as many fragments of the evil blade as he could find.
    He's delightfully evil isn't he?

    6.	Cervantes' Weapons
    Soul Edge and Nirvana- The fragments of Soul Edge inside Cervantes' body 
    acted through his sword to consume souls and eventually take on the form of 
    a sword. Nirvana has a pistol built into it and it is a very unusual weapon. 
    They are balanced weapons, but pale in comparison to the real cursed sword 
    Falchion- A curved, single edged sword used in Europe from the Dark Ages up 
    through the Renaissance. The blade is wide, heavy, and good at splitting 
    things into two. It's sturdiness works well defensively, and it is unlikely 
    to break from normal blows.
    Firangi- A sword used many times in the past by invaders that troubled the 
    Mughul Empire. It is unique to this region, but its' design looks Western. 
    It has a sharp blade, but the grip does not fit Cervantes' hand very well.
    Erlang's Blade- Also called a tri-pointed, double edged sword, it's name 
    comes from the Chinese hero god, Erlang. It is actually a pole weapon, but 
    Cervantes cut the handle short in order to make the sword easier to hold. It 
    has good reach, but because it is not as long as it was designed to be, the 
    balance is poor.
    Archeron- A long sword which laid in storage along with the Nirvana on 
    Cervantes' flagship, the Adrian. Cervantes used this sword for a while 
    before reviving Soul Edge. It is good for both offense and defense. But when 
    it blocks a blow, the shock is fierce, which takes its toll on the wielder's 
    Phlegethon- Flames run along this blade when it strikes a target, and it is 
    said that no forge on earth that can melt it. Soon after being discovered in 
    the crater of Mt. Etna, it was taken by someone and disappeared, leaving 
    many rumors behind. Its deadly flames would surely take their toll on its 
    Cocytus- An ancient sword that was dug out of the permafrost. It is always 
    cold, and causes freezing burns to anyone it wounds. Because of its low 
    temperature, small droplets appear on the surface and fall to the ground 
    like tears, giving it the additional name, the "Crying Sword". As one would 
    expect from its low temperature, it is unaffected by the wielder's heart.
    Styx- Also known as the Sword of Hopes, it has a curved blade with a hook at 
    the tip. An oath sword upon this sword is considered more important then 
    anything else, and breaking that oath is the most shameful act a person can 
    commit. It is said that the one who wields Styx becomes a servant of the 
    gods, and can outrun the wind.
    Soul Edge (Complete)- An evil blade with the reputation of devouring souls. 
    It is also known as a shape-shifter, its current form depends on its current 
    owner. The forms it has taken are legendary, as are the souls of the 
    renowned warriors it has consumed. Only ones with great mental discipline 
    can retain their will while wielding this weapon. It is an evil force that 
    consumes all life around, enemy and ally alike.
    Lethe- Legendary twin swords. Those who wield this weapon find their hearts 
    blank, unable to remember who they are. They have acted as the final trap, 
    that have ended many a quest. It is said that the wielder unleashes its 
    power by burning away their own lives.
    Imitation Sword- Wooden swords carved by Cervantes after being revived. They 
    are made of high quality wood, and where carved with great care. They are 
    not particularly useful as weapons, but because of this, it may lead 
    opponents to let their guard down.
