Long ago, a holy weapon was given upon the mortal woman, Sophitia, by the Greek god of forge, Hephaestus. Known as the Omega Sword, this implement of battle was made by Hephaestus himself using sacred ore, which had divine properties. However, during the young maidens clash with the dread pirate, Cervantes de Leon, it sustained heavy damage and was retrieved by Hephaestus after the battle. For this, Sophitia had left on her second quest against the violent stirrings of Soul Edge with a replica of the original, along with the Elk Shield; both weapons forged by the blacksmith, Rothion, who Sophitia became betrothed to after her second quest had come to an end.
Hephaestus gave Rothion holy ore which he used to make both these new weapons. And after Sophitia returned from her second quest, the weapons were put on an altar as tribute to the gods. And four years later Cassandra stole the Omega Sword for use in her journeys against Soul Edge, but the weapon was cracked during that adventure. Yet when Sophitia started on her third journey, Rothion repaired the sword for her.
I know Im hardly ever inclined to drawing fanart, (which is usually very justifiable! XD) but when youre scouring the internet for signs of good weapon reference, you know somethings amiss when you cant really find anything worth saving from a fighting game based on weapon combat. So here we are! Sophitias lasting main weapons from the Soul Blade/Calibur series, and you could say that this is a taste for things to come, for I may make a small hobby on drawing a few more pieces of fanart dedicated to weapon designs in the anime/gaming worlds that have left impressions on the good side with me. Heck, someone needs to
