Soul Calibur
Storyline of Soul Calibur
Arthur does not know who his siblings are. Born in a harbor town of England, he was living alone by the time he realized what life was like. On that street, which was the key point of the Atlantic trade, even a beggar could make enough money to live a day. At the age of 8, by the suggestion of a sailor who became close to him, he became a sailor. Life on the sea as a handyman of the ship was fun. But, his travel as the mascot of the ship, being loved by the crew, was over only in 2 years. When they visited the country of the Far East. Japan, known as the island of gold-a wealthy merchant who was trading with them took him as a stepson.

For the merchant, he only took Arthur in as a collection of things from the West, but a 10 year old boy couldn't have understood such peculiarity of an adult. He was very happy to have someone to call father. He learned Japanese and the Japanese manners so as to please his stepfather. The Japanese people disliked and criticized "the foreign boy who acts like a Japanese" and eventually, his stepfather offered him to a noble in the excuse that it was to teach him manners.

In the battlefield, his appearance was a target. Arrows, blades and lead bullets attacked him. To stay alive, he had no other way but to fight recklessly. And one day, after countless battles gave him confidence about his skills, he realized: What he is, is neither a Japanese, nor a foreigner, but a swordsman without roots.

The Japanese just look at him with curiosity, not as a man. But there was no way he could be European again, having forgotten his mother tongue already.

An ineffable anxiety and nervousness overwhelmed him.

What to do to be recognized as a man? The only way was to fight. Achieve what no one else can by accomplishing brilliant exploits! Without knowing what to accomplish, he left his home and wandered the battlefields. To become stronger, he risked his life many times. As a result, he lost an eye that people said was like a jewel and what he gained were countless scars, self confidence that he couldn't lose to anyone, and a lovely woman who used to be a prostitute, who followed him like a shadow.

By the time a baby of mixed bloodline was born, a rumor reached his ear. The evil knight of the West. And Soul Edge. It was like an oracle to him, who didn't know what to accomplish. If he defeats that knight and obtains that sword that's called invincible, this time, people might recognize his skills. Then his love and his baby won't be seen as strangers.

Leaving behind the woman and the suckling, he went aboard a ship again after 20 years. At the moment a cannon signaled the departure of the ship, the long-forgotten scenery of his homeland came back to him like an illusion.
