Like my Raphael FAQ, I got everything from the game. For those of you that dont
know, if you pause the game and go to 'Command List', it shows all the
moves(but my Raphael I have grouped his states... all 8 of them...) So 100% of
mycredit goes to Soul Calibur 2 the game.

===   Why?   ===

Becuase I looked up someoneelse's Seung Mina FAQ and it had more problems than
Michael Jackson (almost). I looked through the other FAQ and from my
observations someone needs glasses or a new TV screen becuase he got his G's
and B's mixed up and A's and O's. I dont know about you, but A+B isnt a grab
move. Plus I don't use Raphael as much and Ivy's move just don't cut it for me
becuase im not a fan of a 10 button command that does 90 damage when I can do a
91 with by hitting A+B A+B. Plus, what other best way to learn all the moves
then to hit start and copy them all down so you can print it out and have it in
your lap while you tell your friends to hold on a sec while you try 'this'...

===   Notes   ===
Seung Mina is a mean character. She is my favorite character becuase she has
no states you need to get in in order to pull of an attack, (unlike Raphael who
is my favorite male character). Seung Mina is a general character.

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

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

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.

===   Stage   ===

Stage: Hwangseo Palace/Phoenix Court
Background Music: Sword of the Patriot

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
