Voldo first appeared in Soul Edge, offering the first insights of his unpredictable play style and mannerisms. Later, in the sequel, Soulcalibur, he gained many of his staple moves and traits that would later stay in his reappearance during following games Soul Calibur II, Soul Calibur III and Soul Calibur IV. He is one of the few characters to have been present in every version (either arcade or home) of almost all of the games in the series; in the main series, he, Siegfried, Mitsurugi, Nightmare and Cervantes are the only characters to have appeared in every installment. Voldo remains one of the most known characters in the series because of his unique style, unpredictability and disturbing appearance. He also returned in Soulcalibur V. Voldo is incapable of sight and speech. Thus, making him be reliant on his senses and only being able to make grunting, groaning and hissing noises.
What lies in his soul is Allegiance. In Soulcalibur V's promotional material he is referred to as He Who Is Bound By Blind Allegiance.
