Again, the oracle of the forge god Hephaestus prophesies that a warrior must go forth to destroy the power of Soul Edge. In this case, the responsibility falls to Cassandra, Sophitia's younger sister, after a terrible accident -- another of these strange shards of metal maims one of Sophitia's children. Cassandra thus returns to the god's temple and takes up her sister's old weapons and armor, scarred though they are by the track of Soul Edge. She travels east, following a strange light in the sky. Fun Fact: In the Soul Edge Official Handbook ~Chronicle~, Cassandra is revealed to be the reincarnation of the goddess Aphrodite. (However, this plot point appears to have been scrapped and is likely non-canon.)

Gotta love a name with a nice ring to it. Such a pretty name. Honestly, when I first saw Cassandra in Soul Calibur 2, she struck me as kinda bland. Didn't they already do this design with Sophitia? She just seems like a younger version of the same character. TEKKEN 3 much? Anyhow, I came to appreciate Cassandra's "take" on Sophitia's sword & shield fighting style... and yeah, she has quite a few unique moves of her own. Even when she debuted, most of her moveset was completely unique and different from Sophitia's.

Cassandra was further fleshed out in Soul Calibur 3 and 4... but in my opinion she's still a "sleeper" design in the series. With Sophitia still appearing in many of the sequels, Cassandra never seemed like a "necessary" part of the Soul Calibur roster. However, her visual designs are always intricate and ornate. And yeah... she's cute. Some of her alternate costumes throughout the series were also pretty memorable.
