The main protagonists of Soul Calibur 5, Patroklos Alexander is the son of Sophitia and Rothion Alexander, the younger brother of Pyrrha, the nephew of Cassandra and Lucius. Patroklos had been raised by his father, Rothion. Rothion would convey stories about Sophitia and her holy mission to destroy Soul Edge. Patroklos, as a result, desired to become a holy warrior, just like his mother and to one day meet her.

When he was fifteen years old, Patroklos won a sword-fighting tournament, but that same night, his father began to succumb to his illness. Before his death, Rothion told Patroklos the truth about their family. Sophitia had been killed in battle by a group of malfested and Patroklos' sister had been abducted by a malfested wielding a ring blade. Patroklos vowed to rescue his sister and avenge his mother. After years of training under several masters of the fighting arts (one of whom being Setsuka), he learned of Graf Dumas' recruitment for warriors to hunt down the malfested. Patroklos chose to work under Dumas in hopes of destroying the malfested.

Patroklos eventually discards his shield and wields Soul Calibur as his only weapon. Though at first he allows Elysium to dominate his will, believing her to be his mother's spirit, eventually he realizes that she is simply the embodiment of Soul Calibur. After killing his sister and bringing peace to the world, he goes back in time and makes the decision to save her instead. This draws the ire of Elysium, who imprisons him in a mass of crystal.

In his mind, he battles Elysium while the malfested Pyrrha chips away his crystalline prison, and they rid the world of both swords afterward. Though Pyrrha retains her clawed hand, Patroklos decides to accept her for who she is this time.

A pretty boy... in Soul Calibur? Never saw that one coming! ;) Patroklos is a gutsy kind of choice for the prominent new hero of SC5. He doesn't seem particularly likeable at first, and once you get to know him in the storyline, he's still kind of an asshole... lol. As a design, he's interesting at least... a visually intricate and original costume, and a unique yet simple hairstyle. At first glance, his weapon style might not seem interesting, but he uses his sword & shield unlike any other character I've ever seen. His stance is a bit ridiculous, but he has a very fleshed out fighting style with some really fluid animations. I do wonder why he tries so hard to point his weapon purposely "away" from his target... counterproductive much? lol. 

His Alpha version is a bit cooler I suppose, although he borrows a ton of moves from Setsuka. I wish they explained it in the game... but I'm assuming Setsuka taught him everything he knows? :/
