Popular fighting game franchise Soulcalibur gets a look in for this cosplay shoot, showing off the fine skills of Italian cosplayer Mogu Cosplay (aka Gabriella), as she picks up her sword and shield as Cassandra!
Cassandra Alexandra is the younger sister of series character Sophitia, and in Soulcalibur II set out on her own to destroy the cursed sword Soul Edge, continuing her quest in Soulcalibur III after realizing the sword still existed. She returns in Soulcalibur IV, encountering a man who sensed the fragment of Soul Edge that she carried. After defeating him, he fled, but told her of a “holy stone” with the power to dispel evil. Hearing rumors of a man with a large mass of crystal (Siegfried) on his way to Ostrheinsburg, she reasoned he carried the “Holy Stone” and sought to destroy Soul Edge, and followed him.
Cassandra was designed in mind to have greater determination than Sophitia, with greater physical abilities and skills. Unlike her sister whose skills originate from her weapons and Hephaestus, Cassandra is not as humble and cannot hear him, relying instead on her own strength.
