Story Mode EpisodesEdit
He was shocked. There was no other word for it. He took a few steps back, and his hands flew up to his chest, where a silver blade protruded from it. Falling to his knees, his fingers slipped along the blade. The person who had stabbed him, pulled the blade from his back. He shook and fell over onto his side; he could feel himself fading. He was scared. He'd never felt such fear before. He didn't want to die. "I need your soul," a voice whispered. "I'm sorry you have to die, but I promise it won't be in vain, but you... you are the key."
Cyril didn't asnwer. He only stared at the woman in front of him. He curled in on himself, his body going numb and vision fading away. He didn't want to die like this...all alone.... "Alex....Klymene....T...eo..." Cyril's hand tensed into a fist before he went completely limp. The silver blade the person held glowed with purple and red auras. The woman stared at it before nodding and walking away.
................ "Wasn't Cyril supposed to meet us before we actually got to his little cabin in the woods?" Malik questioned. Alexander nodded, looking a bit annoyed.
"I don't know whether to be angry or worried," he grumbled. Malik smirked and ruffled Alexander's hair.
"No need to be angry," he said. Alexander glared at him.
"I'm not angry!" he snapped, sounding rather annoyed. Malik chuckled.
"Whatever you say-
A shriek of horror that sounded oddly familiar interrupted Malik before he could finish. Alexander's eyebrows furrowed. "That...sounded like..."
"That boy. Tira's little brother? What was his name?"
"Teo," Alexander finished flatly. "We should hurry. Let's go." Alexander and Malik ran the rest of the way to Cyril's cabin. The front door was open and Cyril was nowhere outside. Alex snapped his fingers, and Michael and Rafael materialized in his hands.
"Proceed with caution," Malik advised. Alexander rolled his eyes.
"No, really?" Alex muttered sarcastically. Malik gave him a strange look before they entered the cabin. Alexander's eyes widened. Teo was kneeling and staring at Cyril's body. Cyril's dead body. Cyril was dead. "WHAT?!" Alexander was at Cyril's side before he could even think about it. The blonde's face was tearstreaked, as though he'd been crying when he died. Alexander ran his fingers along the trail and eyed the stab wound in the boy's chest. He looked up at Teo.
"Did you do this?" he demanded. Teo looked at him.
"Teo would...Teo would never..." Teo's eyes began to water and Alexander sighed in exasperation.
"Don't cry," he commanded. He looked around the cabin, but there was no sign of a struggle, but Alexander noticed something odd. He couldn't sense any form of Soul Edge from Cyril. Even when Nirvana had died, he had sensed the dark power still in her. "Goddamnit. What is going on?"
"What do you mean you don't know where Soulcalibur is?" Vienna asked Patroklos. The young blonde gave her an irritated look.
"I just don't, okay? I don't really like to talk about that stuff anymore, anyway," Patroklos muttered. "I don't need any attention coming to me and my sister." The black haired woman sighed before smiling.
"I understand. Thank you for your help." With that, she walked away, silver sword in her hand gleaming. It gave Patroklos a bad feeling.
"She's looking for Soulcalibur?" Val said with an exagerated eyeroll. "She isn't going to find it unless she finds me."
"Don't get arrogant. You have several people after you, including Tira." Talon said lowly.
"Let that bitch come. See if I give a damn. I'll kill her." The icy crown atop Val's head shimmered as he spoke and Talon looked away from the younger redhead."What's the status on the Cassavantes girls?" Val looked to Alaina as his friend approached. She grinned up at him, and waved a small set of papers.
"We know where they're living!" she proclaimed cheerfully.
Alexander rolled his eyes as he watched Cyril play tag with Teo. It was disgustingly sweet and made Alex want to gag. "So, when are you going to ask her?" Malik questioned, startling Alex from his brooding.
"When it feels right," was the short response. Alex's gaze trailed over to Klymene. She'd somehow been dragged into the game of tag by Teo.
"Snow is quite the romantic; you should ask her about it before you do the real thing," suggested Malik with a shrug, but he was smirking.
"I already know what she would like," Alex said quietly. ".....How is Snow?" Malik shrugged.
"Ask her yourself when you come to visit," the older man replied. "The city is rebuilding itself. No one even remembers what the... wielder looked like. You can come back home." Alex shook his head and scoffed.
"As if....." There was nothing left there. No parents....No Nirvana. "The place is worthless to me." Alexander looked up at Malik before standing and walking into the home.
Alexander had always loved the idea of romance. He knew, deep down, that has been different lately but. Klymene was beside him, and his knuckles ached from clenching around what was in his hand. Cyril had taken Teo home, and Malik had accompanied them. For the first time in awhile, Alex was nervous. He wished his sister was still alive to see this. He tilted his head back and looked at the night sky. "Klymene...." He looked down and met her gaze, and perhaps his heart burst out of his chest. He couldn't seem to speak and Klymene raised an eyebrow at his silence. Alex smirked softly and let out a small laugh at himself before hooking his arm around Klymene's waist and pulling her closer to press their lips together.
He chuckled at the nosie that escaped her when he rolled them so he was pinning her gently to the ground, his left hand trailing up her leg before resting on her hip as he tilted his head and looked down at her. Positioning that left hand on the ground, he raised his right hand, fingers still grapped tight. "Klyyyymeeeeene....." he sang softly. "You know....I love you very much. I love you more than I love myself...." Alex paused and relaxed his hand. The ring glimmered. Klymene's eyes widened at the sight of its shimmer.
"I may have gone a bit overboard with the ring," he said lowly with a sly grin. "Klymene Cassavantes.... Light of my Life, Fire of my Soul.... will you Marry Me?" Tears sprung in Klymene's eyes and Alex blinked, only slightly concerned. Klymene grabbed him by the collar and pulled him down for a kiss. She wrapped her legs around his waist before flipping them both so she was on top.
"Of, of course I WILL!" Klymene leaned down and kissed him once more, slower this time, her hands tangling in his hair.
"How long until we get there?"
"Three months at most."
Val tilted his head at Talon's seemingly dismissive answers but he said nothing. He could not be bothered at the moment.
Playable Character(s): Vienna, One-handed Sword
Opponent(s): Malfested Man, Malfested Woman
Vienna watched, satisfied, as the Dark Essence drained into her blade from the Malfested Couple. However, it was nowhere near enough. She needed that boy with the black hair, and the blonde. The little girl's as well, but for some reason, her body was nowhere to be found, and neither was her mother.
"I don't appreciate what you're doing," a young woman's voice said calmly. Vienna twirled and looked at the girl who had spoken. She was thin, but with slight shape. She was dressed head to toe in pink and white, but her right arm was black with purple and red veins running through it, and clawed fingers. On her face was an invory mask with large wings.
"Who are you?" Demanded Vienna curiously. The Mystery Girl tilted her her masked face and waved her blacked arm into the air. Vienna's blade was ripped from her grasp, and flew to the Girl. It was then that Vienna noticed the eye on the back of the girl's hand.
"I AM SOUL EDGE!" The girl growled out in an inhumane voice, and Vienna's eyes widened in fear at the sudden change in weather as the sky grew dark and wind began to blow violently. Once the blade reached the girl's hand, the energy began to leech from it and into her. "YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DEALING WITH, WOMAN." The girl threw the sword to the ground. Vienna watched her warily as the girl turned from the elf and walked away.
"Where are you going?" Vienna called after her angrily. She ran over to her fallen sword and grabbed it from the ground as the girl continued to walk away. "I want answers!" The girl paused and raised her right hand, the eye staring directly at Vienna.
"I already spoke with you, annoying witch. Continue your quest at your own peril."
Vienna's grip on her sword tightened, and she ran at the girl in front of her and unsheathed her blade. "You've sucked the power from my blade! I'll be needing that back!" The pink-clad girl twirled around, and the eye in her hand popped out and swelled in size.
"Big mistake," the girl murmured.
Playabale Character(s): Vienna
Opponent(s): Mystery Girl
ZWEI observed the scene of the two women fighting with extreme wariness. That pink girl was powerful, dangerously so. The energy coming from her was clearly of the Cursed Sword's origin. ZWEI moved closer just as the pink girl shoved Vienna to the ground, the giant eye pressing against her back. It spun and landed on ZWEI. The tall man froze in his movements. Though the pink girl was seemingly looking at Vienna, she spoke as though looking at ZWEI. "Come out, I know you're there!" ZWEI gripped his sword and came into the girl's view.
"Why are you watching me? You've been ghosting me for awhile now." The mystery girl looked up, her masked gaze somehow piercing. For a moment, ZWEI could see glowing, orange from behind the mask.
"I've been tracking a lead; you're looking like quite the threat," ZWEI responded calmly. The girl tilted her head and laughed. She nudged Vienna with her toe; the elf growled and attempted to get up.
"She's who you need to worry about. Maybe find out what she's been up to."
ZWEI scoffed. "What? Besides killing Malfested?" The girl wagged her finger at ZWEI.
"You know it isn't that simple at all."
"Why the Mask?" ZWEI questioned suddenly. The girl raised her left hand to touch the front of her mask.
"You don't need to know who I am," she responded with a strange tone. "Makes what I am doing easier." She waved her right hand, and the giant eye lifted from Vienna. It shrunk and fitted back into her hand. Abruptly, the mystery girl kicked Vienna, hard, sending the elven girl flying at ZWEI.
"Shit!" he exclaimed as the woman made contact with him and knocked him down. Quickly, he shoved her away and rose back to his feet. The mystery girl was gone.
"COME OUT, COME OUT!" Tira kicked down the door to the room, and immediately everyone was on their feet. "Now, now! One of you three tell me where that troublesome redheaded boy is and maaaybe I'll kill you a little quicker!" Natsu immediatelt rushed at her, no intentions of playing games with Tira.
Playable Character(s): Natsu
Tira slid between Natsu's legs as the young ninja attempted to slash at her face. She kicked one of Natsu's legs in the process. In a quick movement, Tira rolled into a jumping kick that Maxi promptly blocked.
Playable Character(s): Maxi
From behind, Natsu attempted to get back at Tira. However the split-minded woman dropped completely to the ground in a split, kicking both Maxi and Natsu's feet out from under them. "This is starting to be not fun," Tira voiced in an exxagerrated tone. Xiba then burst into the room as well, staff in his hands and cheeks full.
"A little help?!" Natsu exclaimed as she got back to her feet. Xiba nodded enthusiastically.
"You all are really getting on my nerves..." Tira growled
Playable Character(s): Xiba
"Enough of this already!" Tira yelled, deflecting Xiba's staff. She kicked him in the chest and jumped past him, landing on the desk Maxi had been sitting at. She then leaped through the glass window behind it, rolling into a land on the grass below. Running over, Maxi leaned out the window before looking over his shoulder at Nastu.
"I got this," she said confidently, leaping out of the window after the ringblade wielder.
Mystery Girl sat on a tree branch, waiting silently. She tilted her head as she saw Tira running by. She jumped down from the tree and landed in front of the woman. Tira came to a halt, raising her eyebrows at the mystery girl in front of her.
"Well, alright Pinky, you've gotten my attention successfully! Tira exclaimed. Mystery girl said nothing, only lifted her right hand, the eye popping out of it like before and growing in size.
"Stop right there, Tira!" Natsu yelled as she leaped from the shadows. Her eyes flicked back and forth between Mystery girl, the giant floating eye and Tira.
Apparently ignoring the blonde, Mysery girl addressed Tira, "Meh, I see you are wasting time trying to find Soulcalibur's Wielder; isn't there a Soul Edge you should be worrying about?"
"What exaactly would you know of that, little brat?" Tira's voice had changed and her expression had gone sour. Mystery Girl shrugged and the eye swirled around Tira.
"Who are you?' Natsu demanded, her blade pointed at the Mystery Girl.
"Don't point your pathetic metal at me," Mystery girl's eyes seemed to glow behind her mask. The floating eye wizzed past Tira at an incredibly speed and slamemd into Natsu's stomach, sending her flying against a tree. The impact was emphasized with a loud crack. Mystery Girl ran at Tira, claws coming from her hands. Tira growled, ducking as the Eye came flying back at her.
Playable Character(s): Mystery Girl
Mystery Girl plunged her claws into Tira's chest, startling a scream out of her opponent. She forced Tira into a kneeling position before ripping her claws away. Dark purple energy flowed from the ringblade wielder and into the socket on Mystery Girl's hand. Tira's hand pressed against her chest before she keeled over. Mystery girl nudged Tira a few times with her foot before cracking her kuckles.
"You won't be meddling with my brother's affairs anymore...." she muttered darkly before turning away.
