[edit] Weapons

She wields a shield and a short sword. Her normal weapons are the Omega Sword & Nemea Shield (In Soul Calibur II) and the Digamma Sword & Nemea Shield (In Soul Calibur III). Her best weapon, unlocked later on in the games, is called the Valkyrie.

[edit] Stages

[edit] Eurydice Shrine Gallery

This is Cassandra's stage in Soul Calibur II. She shares it with her sister, Sophitia. It's appearance is often described as very beautiful; it's very bright, and has a fountain of cold water in one corner. Although, the stage is not the original. It's a replica, built by people when the original shrine was destroyed.

[edit] Old Toledo - Burning Gallery

This is Cassandra's stage in Soul Calibur III. This time it is not shared with her sister. It's appearance seems to be a hallway of a mansion that is set on fire. Waves of heat are visible because of the burning inferno, and on both sides of the hallway there is a large hole burned into the ground for ring outs. The two holes make it impossible to get away.

[edit] Stories

  • Soul Calibur III - Determined to destroy Soul Edge on behalf of her sister, Cassandra left her home. In the mountains in the east, she happened upon a city where the residents had lost their minds from the effects of evil energy.

"What's going on?" The fragment she held reacted strongly to this place. Soul Edge was somehow involved in this bizarre phenomenon. She made up her mind to free the city.

"My sister was able to do it... I can too!" she said to herself. But then something unexpected occurred-- cracks had appeared in the sword and shield she had taken from Hephaestus.

Feeling apprehensive, there was nothing Cassandra could do but to flee the city. She felt completely helpless-- she may have used her sword and shield a bit roughly, but she couldn't believe arms made from holy ore could be damaged.

As she gazed at her damaged sword and shield, the image of her sister and her young niece and nephew flashed through the back of her mind. Her sister smiled happily, leading her children by the hand...

"No... I can't give up." Cassandra's eyes shone once again with determination. She returned to Greece to consult with her blacksmith brother-in-law, Rothion. Unexpected news was waiting for her upon her return home, however.

During Cassandra's absence, Sophitia, had once again set out on a journey to destroy Soul Edge.

"Damn you Hephaestus! This is all your fault!" Cassandra cursed to herself, though she didn't consider her sister having regained her previous strong will to be completely bad news.

She had to help her sister. She would stand by her and support her.

After receiving a new sword and shield from Rothion, Cassandra set out with a pure purpose in her heart, with the early dawn's soft light shining upon her back.
