~ Azwel

Azwel is a character from the Soulcalibur series. He first appeared in Soulcalibur VI, which marks his debut appearance in the new, rebooted Soulcalibur timeline. He is the main antagonist of Libra of Soul's story mode, and is nicknamed The Leader of Humanity.

Biography

Azwel is a man of extraordinary intelligence and a scholar in many fields, including history, medicine, war, and art. His studies about the history of humanity brought him to the conclusion that humanity would self-destruct through wars and other calamities. His genius was such that he became one of the twelve leading members of the Aval Organization despite the others acknowledging his lack of loyalty and the fact that he could easily betray them the moment their goals no longer aligned. His fanatical love for the people led him to enact a terrifying plan to save them from themselves.

His weapon is named Palindrome, a pair of gauntlets. The right gauntlet includes a fragment of Soul Edge, while the left one has a piece of Soul Calibur. Azwel draws his power from their memories of past battles, preserved within those fragments. While he appears unarmed, his gauntlets allow him to summon a variety of deadly weapons, which he can use with brutal effects.

Personality

Azwel is a cunning and charismatic genius who possesses mannerisms of a playwright with a messiah complex who advocates his love for humanity. Underneath it all, however, Azwel comes off as irredeemably cruel, self-aggrandizing, spiteful, and sociopathic sadist. His warped idea of "love" for humans is merely for his own self-gratification and can be likened to that of psychological abuse and emotional manipulation he inflicts to his victims, especially through his experiments. He also made no hesitation in remorselessly murdering any high-ranking members of the Aval Organization when they became suspicious of his schemes, including Grøh's master, Orzal.

Trivia

  • Though Palindrome is the official name of his weapon, none of his weapons' names are palindromes.
    • Despite his weapon being his gauntlets, they are treated as arm parts for Character Creation and are not needed when his style is used.
  • His appearance is similar to Cesare Borgia. They both are mannered on utopia, and have long, masculine hairdo and continuing, oriental goatees
  • He's the third Soulcalibur villain to wield both Soul Calibur and Soul Edge. The other characters to do so are Iska Farkas and Algol.
