The List, Part 14
Ivy, Soul Calibur Series
Isabella "Ivy" Valentine first appeared in the first Soul Calibur and has quickly become a fan favorite with her range attacks and bombastic outfits. Ivy was raised in an upper class family in London. When her father goes crazy in his quest to find the Soul Edge, Ivy discovers she was adopted after being abandoned as an infant. Driven by rage, she sets out to find the blade herself and destroy it. An anti-hero who frequently clashes with other Souls, Ivy is a fascinating character for a fighting game.
Pros: She's one of the deadliest Soul Calibur warrior, plus she has possibly the best butt of any video game character.
Cons: Ivy's real father is an evil pirate who raped her mother, so she has some stability issues and anger management problems.
Should be Played By: Jennifer Lopez, who can match Ivy's booty.
Sophitia, Soul Calibur Series
Sophitia actually made her debut in the game Soul Edge, the precursor to the acclaimed fighting game series Soul Calibur. She starts out as a young woman working in her family's Greek bakery, who is ordered by the Greek god Hephaestus to obtain the powerful blade Soul Edge. With the holy weapon Omega Sword, Sophitia sets out to find the Soul Edge and gradually matures and grows into a formidable fighter with an array of deadly punisher moves. She's nicknamed "the emotional goddess," with good reason.
Pros: She's a virtuous heroin who's as brave as she is cute. And she can cook, too.
Cons: She's married with two kids. What a bummer.
Should be Played By: Kate Bosworth, but only if she puts a little weight back on.

Taki, Soul Calibur Series
Taki, like Sophitia, first appeared in Soul Edge. She's a ninja who hunts demons with kodachi or a short sword she created and named the Rekki-maru. Teki learns that the Soul Edge was protected by her Fu-Ma clan and sets out to destroy the evil blade. She crosses paths with Sophitia and rescues her during a deadly battle. Originally, Taki wasn't very strong and relied on her incredible speed. But as the Soul Calibur series progresses, she became a stronger fighter.
Pros: She's a skilled and noble warrior with a shining spirit and stunning beauty.
Cons: Raised as an orphan, she leads a lonely life where the only thing that keeps her going is her quest for the Soul Edge.
Should be Played By: Zhan Ziyi, because even though she's Chinese, she's beautiful and we know she can handle the swords.
