Marienbard, Auguste and Jacqueline are Raphael's servants in Soul Calibur IV and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny.
Role in Soul Calibur IV
Not much is known about this trio. What can be called their first appearance is in Raphael's 1st stage in Story Mode, where he fights against them. They probably are somehow related to Soul Edge, since in the start of the fight Raphael says "So, the evil sword has sent you to do its bidding.", after the fight they are recruited by Raphael and Marienbard stays on his side until the end of his story.
On the other characters' Story Modes, they constantly appear alongside Raphael and Amy.
They appear in both Raphael and Amy's endings, being killed by Raphael to unleash Soul Calibur's power. The only difference is that Marienbard appears in Raphael's ending alongside Auguste, and in Amy's ending alongside Jacqueline.
