Possible Opponents


After his father, Philip de Leon, was killed by an English warship, Cervantes turned on Spain and became a pirate. When he found the cursed sword Soul Edge, he was driven mad and his soul was devoured. He would serve the evil sword for many years until his defeat at the hands of his daughter Ivy, after which he was swallowed into another dimension.

17 years later, not only has he freed himself from Soul Edge's control, but he has returned back to his world at the height of his power.
