A warrior once knew
as a hired assassin, but now he follows the commands of Zasalamel. His
real name is lost in the history, since he never told anyone his real name.
He lived since his younger days in the underworld, without any relative.
He did everything he could trying to survive and eventually he turned into
an assassin. He quickly become into the most feared assassin. His prey
were always silenced without a doubt, and whoever who tried to attack him
from behind found only a grizzly end. Since he never made bonds to anyone,
he was always a lone wolf.
Eventually, those who wanted his death disappeared
and he become the presence feared by even the powerful men. But time passed
and he grew in age, and those who feared him decreased in numbers. He lived
that life until one day when a young, carrying a scythe, appeared before
him. While he was being torn by the young, he recalled an old man, rumored
to be a magician, that he killed before. Both this "magician" and the young
shared a bright gold eye. As his last thoughts he come to the conclusion
this young and the old man were the same person. Then he died. And 10 years
after his death, his empty bones were reanimated by Zasalamel. Maybe he
didn't remember anything of his past life, or maybe he cannot tell anyone
aside from himself in his current state. He is bond to obey his master,
but inside himself he prays that, when Zasalamel reach his goal of ending
his immortality, he would be finally free.
Revenant wasn't a selectable character in Soul Calibur IV, but he does
appear in the game exclusively within Zasalamel's story mode. Instead of using
the "Wave Sword" style from Soul Calibur III, he uses Cervantes'
style double sword style.
