Soulcalibur VIEdit


During Siegfried's journey to find Soul Edge, he met a woman named Kisandra. Siegfried instantly felt a connection with her, and for a few moments forgot about his journey. He felt safe around Kisandra and although he was weary, he told her about his Fathers death. Kisandra didn't judge Siegfried however, and instead told him that he shouldn't blame himself for what happened and that she felt safe around him. After hearing those words, Siegfried couldn't help himself and kissed Kisandra. That night the young pair made love. During his sleep, Siegfried had a gruesome nightmare about his fathers death. He woke up in a cold sweat and once again his sanity dropped, he left in the middle of the night to search for Soul Edge once again. Shortly afterwards, Kisandra would fall pregnant, unknown to Siegfried.


After losing to Kilik and his comrades in the form of Nightmare, Siegfried awoke in an unfamiliar place and he is now unable to free himself from the unforgiving memories of his time spent as the cursed sword’s puppet. The memory of having killed his own father is haunting him, as well as the memories of suddenly leaving Kisandra after bedding her, he was ridden with guilt. His true nightmare has only just begun… Full of regrets, he is looking for redemption and he desperately wants to free himself from the cursed sword’s grasp!
