|~ Sophitia in Soul Calibur IV|
Sophitia Alexandra is a character in the Soul series of fighting games. She appeared in Soul Edge, Soul Calibur, Soul Calibur II, Soul Calibur III, Soulcalibur Legends, Soul Calibur IV and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny. While playing the role of a heroine in many games, she is an anti-villain in Soul Calibur IV and Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny, as a servant of Nightmare, siding with Tira who was her arch-enemy in Soul Calibur III, and other villains.
Sophitia was fighting Cervantes and managed to destroy the female half of Soul Edge during her fight with him. But she was badly injured by the shards and about to lose the fight. Taki came for help and ended the battle by killing Cervantes. Taki managed to extract most shards out of Sophitia's body, but one remained near her heart: when she gave birth to Pyrrha and Patroklos, both of her children were "tainted". Tira was interested in Sophitia's children because they were potential hosts for Soul Edge and she managed to kidnap Pyrrha. In Soulcalibur IV, Sophitia tried to rescue Pyrrha, but was told that her daughter was now so tainted that she could no longer survive without Soul Edge. Sophitia had no other choice and cooperated with Nightmare and Tira to protect the sword... And her child. In the end, Siegfried managed to defeat Nightmare, and Sophitia had to sacrifice her life in order to save Pyrrha's, by transplanting her last Soul Edge shard in her daughter's body.
