Sophitia Alexandra

From Koei Tecmo Wiki

Sophitia Alexandra (ソフィーティア・アレクサンドル) is an original character created by Bandai Namco for the Soulcalibur series. A former holy warrior who fought for the god, Hephaestus, her goal in life is to hunt and destroy Soul Edge. Fragments of the blade were injected into her body when it shattered once, and its dark energies infected her and her then unborn children. Soul Edge's malevolence turns her children mad whenever the sword or its fragments are nearby. She fights with the hopes of saving her children from its influences.

Role in Game

Sophitia wanted to return home after her ending in the fourth Soulcalibur, worried for her children. She is sucked into a time distortion along the way and dragged into the dimensional realm. During her time there, parts of her world have merged with what remains of Liaodong. Assisted by Nene, Sun Jian, and Masanori, she is able to defeat the serpent troops swarming the vicinity. Unable to return home, however, she puts finding her children on hold and joins the Coalition out of gratitude.

Character Information


Sophitia is a kind and caring woman who puts the lives of her family members above all others. She is protective of her younger sister Cassandra to point of scolding her if the latter has been out fighting. A devoted mother, she will do whatever it takes to protect her children, Patroklos and Pyrrha. When defeating opponents in battle, she reprimands them like ill-behaving children while always speaking in a soft motherly tone. She refuses to take the lives of others under any circumstances, believing all life to be precious.

She shares an affinity with Sun Jian, Nene, Joan of Arc, and Yinglong.

Character Symbolism

Her second and third weapons allude to Soul Calibur and Soul Edge respectively. Both blades played a central role in the Soulcalibur series and were eventually wielded by Sophitia's children during the fifth game.

Fighting Style

Sophitia is the ideal Technique type character, with a modest attack range, decent attack speed, and is very good at dealing, and receiving, damage. She is the only character in the game who has, effectively, four different Special attacks. Her ground R1 grants temporary invincibility, enabling players to escape when surrounded by enemies. She is also capable of chaining her R1 with Square or Triangle to perform different moves, giving her three special attacks while on the ground.

Because of her move sets special feature, allowing players to hold down the Triangle button to enhance the strength of her charge attacks, Sophitia greatly benefits from having the Iron Gauntlet accessory. With it one no longer needs to worry about being attacked and interrupted while charging up her Triangle attacks strength.

Sophitia is also one of the few characters to benefit from a glitch that causes her Musou attack to trigger the Absorption and Osmosis weapon skills. Because of this Sophitia greatly benefits from having these skills as they will activate from her charge attacks, and her Musou, meaning its nigh impossible to run out of either HP or MP when playing as her. She greatly benefits from the Echo skill, as it enhances her already impressive attack range, and also causes her grapple attacks to deal more damage to both the target of said grapple attacks, as well as damaging surrounding enemies.

A few of Sophitia's attacks are references to her original moves in the Soulcalibur series.

  • Sophitia's Musou is a re-enactment of her Critical Finish move "Divine Palladium" from Soulcalibur IV.
