is the daughter of Sophitia
and Rothion Alexandra, the older sister of Patroklos,
the niece of Cassandra
and Lucius. During the events of Soul Calibur IV, Tira
abducted Pyrrha at a very young age, and she could not live without the
influence of Soul Edge. Sophitia became a servant and protector of the evil
sword in order to save her daughter.
Before the events of Soul
Calibur V Pyrrha has lived her life as a wanderer for seventeen years, not
knowing her family exists because she has no one she can truly call family.
Pyrrha knows nothing about her past. All those who got close to her strangely
died, thus she gained the nickname the "Bringer of Woe". Pyrrha
was purchased by a nobleman's son named Jurgis, in a slave market and began
working as a maid. One day Jurgis proposed to Pyrrha, but that night he
was murdered. Everyone thought that she was the killer and she was arrested.
"Why does this keep happening to me!? It wasn't me. It wasn't me..."
It was then Tira appeared to seduce her, her own heart too fragile to resist.
Pyrrha Ω is the malfested version of the original Pyrrha. Pyrrha Ω
appeared after Pyrrha was found by her long lost brother Patroklos, and had
for the first time found a place in the world and the love of another. Because
Pyrrha had been kidnapped early in her life by Tira, and told that she was
nothing more then a monster that had to kill to survive, Pyrrha was always
depressed to the point of madness. Tira wanted her at this state because she
was to be the new vessel for Soul Edge. After she had found her brother, they
were attacked by Graf Dumas, Patroklos' old commander, who turned out to be
the new Nightmare. Nightmare swung
to take out Patroklos, and in a feat of true love, Pyrrha who was afraid of
fighting came to his rescue, stopping the cursed sword with her own. Then the
malfested version of her came to light, transforming her from an innocent girl
into a fighter. Because Pyrrha Ω was now born she was able to defeat
Nightmare and took Soul Edge for herself. Tira's goal had been accomplished.
Now not even her brother was able to accept her.

As a successor to
Sophitia & Cassandra, Pyrrha is a naturally suiting
design for the series. She borrows quite a few moves from her mother and aunt,
but has entirely new animations. She actually seems "frightened" to
fight, which is actually a pretty unique element for a fighting game character.
She has a ton of unique
mannerisms & animations that define her and differentiate her from previous
sword & shield users of the Soul series.
I love how she still uses Sophitia's classic "Sorry!" after kneeing her opponent's
in the balls... gotta keep it traditional! lol. Her Omega/Evil version offers a
different moveset, which interestingly favors Sophitia's. As somewhat of a female
Nightmare, Omega Pyrrha is pretty cool. I find her evil scream a bit
annoying, however. On a side note, something about
her reminds me
a wee bit of Lili from Tekken.
