Iska Farkas

Origin - Buda, Kingdom of Hungary (Hungary) note 
Weapon(s) - a dagger
Voiced by: note 

Iska Farkas is one of the key characters who only appears in Soulcalibur Legends. He is a 16 year old refugee Hungarian who serves as a court jester for the Masked Emperor and travels with Siegfried. He turns out to be the main villain of the story.

  • Artificial Human: Created one in the shape of his beloved sister Ilona. The homunculus serves as the Masked Emperor.
  • Corrupted Character Copy: He is basically a send-up of Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. They are both adolescents who are highly knowledgeable in the field of alchemy and each have a Dark and Troubled Past in which they tragically lose a female family member (Edward's mother and Iska Farkas' sister in their respective cases) who they unsuccessfully attempted to bring back to life. Also notable is that he even has Edward's V.A.s in both Japanese and English to reinforce this connection. However Iska Farkas is a darker take on Edward. Whereas Edward has a strong moral foundation and is also wise enough to accept what can and cannot be changed, Iska Farkas is a sociopath who covertly pits various people against each other in an effort to acquire both Soul Edge and Soulcalibur in an effort to destroy the world to both resurrect his sister, Ilona, and recreate the world as it was prior to her passing.
