Siegfried had played host to Soul Calibur and, ultimately, destroyed Soul Edge. After that epic battle, the knight returned home and enjoyed a brief period of peace. But deep down he knew his work was not over; the cursed sword's minions—the malfested—remained a serious threat. Realizing he couldn't stop them alone, Siegfried gathered his staunchest allies from his old clan known as Schwarzwind, he reformed the clan of thieves into a clan of mercenaries.
One day, after more than a decade of service protecting humanity from the malfested, Siegfried discovered that Soul Calibur had transformed into a new one-handed sword—a clear harbinger of Soul Edge's return. A new champion to wield Soul Calibur would need to be found; Siegfried assigned the task to Z.W.E.I., a wandering swordsman who had joined his mercenary group.

Notable Attacks and Techniques:
- Soul Conviction: He shouts "Get ready!", then uses his sword to knock the opponent in the air and brings them down. He then powers up Soul Calibur by raising it into the sky, yelling "Prepare to die!". As the foe stands up, he slashes his blade through them vertically, sending crystals everywhere as the opponent drops dead, consumed by blue flames. Or Siegfried turns back saying "Taste... My blade!", and then he releases a single launcher. There's a blue shining sphere at the end of his sword during the attack.
- Legacy Testament: Siegfried raises his sword above his head and stabs it into the ground. This causes a trail of crystal spikes to appear in the direction of his opponent.
- Ashen Blitz: That's a hardly recognizable inverse version of Terror Slap. If Siegfried succeeds in delivering the blow, time freezes for a while. This long-range horizontal high attack is always followed with a blue-white trace.
