This is a list of characters from the Soul series who made their debut as npcs.
- Soul Edge
- Soulcalibur II
- Soulcalibur III
- Soulcalibur IV
- Soulcalibur V
- Soulcalibur VI
- Soulcalibur Legends
- Mesopotamian Mythology: His own name is Arabic, so it's fairly clear that he originates from somewhere in that region, albeit eons ago, just like his father.
- Plot-Triggering Death: His death at the hands of his father. Was the reason his father Algol decided to create Soul Calibur to counter Soul Edge.
- Self-Made Orphan: Under Soul Edge's control, he killed his mother.
Origin - The New World (United States) note
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign: "Bangoo" is not a Native American name, and sounds more like a generic caveman-type name. However, "Bhangoo" (with an "h") is an Indian (as in India) name, so maybe that's where the confusion lies.
- Braids, Beads and Buckskins: His look when he's depicted in art, as per his background as a Native American.
- Happily Adopted: He lost his parents in tribal warfare and was the only native to develop a relationship with Rock, the "White Giant", during his first years in the New World. Eventually, Rock took Bangoo as his son and raised him.
- Promoted to Playable: Subverted. He would have been playable in V as an adult, if Project Soul had more time to develop the game.
Origin - Japan
Origin - London, Kingdom of England note
- Blue Blood: An earl is a member of the British peerage, ranking below a marquess and above a viscount. A feminine form of "earl" never developed, so "countess" is used as the equivalent feminine title.
- Death by Despair: The Countess passed away very soon after her husband, likely out of sheer grief.
- Deathbed Confession: Ivy only discovered the secret of her true parentage note when the Countess was on her deathbed, but this did not matter to her, for the Valentines were the only parents she knew.
- Driven to Madness: The Earl was driven insane by his pursuit of Soul Edge, which he thought was the key to eternal youth.
- Good Parents: Although not her parents by blood, they raised baby Ivy with love after they discovered her abandoned at the gates of their mansion, and she enjoyed a very happy childhood thereafter.
- Ill Girl: As can be seen from the family portrait above, the Countess is very pale, with a rather maudlin expression, and was of a seemingly sickly constitution, as she passed away as soon as her husband died.
- Impoverished Patrician: The Earl squandered his entire family fortune on researching and questing for Soul Edge, thinking it to be the key to immortality, which left their once enormous wealth and good name in ruins.
- Shown Their Work:
- When Ivy debuted, her father was mislabeled "Count" (Valentine), a title never used in the English peerage. Come SCV, the mistake was rectified and he was correctly titled and referred to as "Earl Valentine" (analogous to the European title "count").
- The Earl and Countess are depicted wearing (pretty much) period-correct late Elizabethan clothing in the portrait above, which is in huge contrast to the series approach to its in-game character costuming (their daughter being of particular note...)
- Tragic Keepsake: The above image is taken from a family portrait which hangs in the grand hall of the Valentine Mansion and depicts Ivy's family in much happier times.
Origin - Ober-Getzenberg, Holy Roman Empire (Germany) note
Origin - Japan
Origin - Holy Roman Empire (Germany) note
- Action Girl: She is a bandit-turned-knight who wields a longsword in combat, and led Schwarzwind during Siegfried's absence.
- Cincinnatus: She assumed leadership of Schwarzwind during Siegfried's time as Nightmare and his solo crusade against Soul Edge, but when he returned, she abdicated and resumed her previous position as second-in-command.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: She recruited Hilde into Schwarzwind following the collapse of Wolfkrone, and they've remained best friends ever since.
- Hopeless Suitor: She has romantic feelings for Siegfried whose own mother thought she was too good for but he's too caught up in his war against Nightmare for romance.
- Hyper-Competent Sidekick: She was the brains behind Siegfried's brawn during Schwarzwind's days as a bandit group, being in charge of both tactics and administration, and was the one who came up with their best plans.
- Moveset Clone: In Broken Destiny, she uses Amy's fighting style.
- Mr. Vice Guy: Despite having matured since her days as a thief, she still has a weakness for easy money.
- Number Two: She is Siegfried's second-in-command within Schwarzwind, and has been with him since their bandit days.
- The Strategist: During her time as a bandit, she was the one who came up with all the good plans.
- Used to Be a Tomboy: According to New Legends of Project Soul, Salia was a tomboy in her younger years, but after realizing her romantic feelings for Siegfried she went out of her way to become more feminine in an effort to attract him.
Origin - Fu-Ma No Sato, Japan
- Arch-Enemy: While he was originally kindhearted, he became the archenemy of his foster daughter Taki.
- Archnemesis Dad: To Taki. They're not technically father and daughter by blood, but given that he raised and trained her, the effect is the same.
- Da Chief: One of the co-leaders of the Fu-Ma Clan, before his death.
- FaceHeel Turn: His desire to wield the cursed katana Mekki-Maru turned him evil.
- Hijacking Cthulhu: He absorbed Gel-o-Fury, the powerful demon that Taki sealed under a Buddhist temple, and transformed into a demon himself.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: He was killed by Taki using the very demon-sealing techniques that he taught her when she was his student.
- Kitsune: His demon form resembled a grotesque multi-tailed anthropomorphic fox.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: He was Taki's mentor before he turned evil and transformed into a kitsune-like demon. She slew him, and his soul was ultimately consumed by Soul Edge.
- Ninja: He was the co-leader of the Fu-Ma ninja clan.
- Offing the Offspring: He ordered Taki's death after she took Mekki-Maru.
- Parental Substitute: He was Taki's father figure before he was corrupted by Mekki-Maru.
