SC4 Algol

Algol SC5 render


Algol, also known as "The Hero King," was able to obtain Soul Edge, and with his indomitable will, he resisted the sword's control. According to the legend, he used the sword to spread peace among the lands, building the Tower of Glory as a monument to his reign. His son, Arcturus, jealous of his father's power and unaware of the sword's malevolent properties, stole Soul Edge for himself and was possessed. Faced with no other choice, Algol battled and defeated his son with a fatal strike.

Deeply remorseful after his son's death, Algol endeavored to create a sword to counter the evil within Soul Edge. The legend says that, using purified shards obtained from the battle with his son and the assistance of various sages, Algol was able to create Soul Calibur after many failed attempts and the sacrifice of his own life. However, the "successful" ritual produced unexpected results: the blade created was extremely similar in nature to Soul Edge due to the restlessness in Algol's soul.
