One of the characters inadvertently revealed for SoulCalibur VI at Melbourne Esports Open was none other than Cervantes de Leon. The dread pirate was (and still is) a fan favorite, and his accidental reveal had many longtime fans rejoicing.

While he’s a familiar face to SoulCalibur veterans, some of those who may not have followed the series may wonder just Cervantes is such an important character. That and more that is covered in this latest episode of History Behind the Warrior.

The video below covers Cervantes history within the series, starting as the main antagonist of the original Soul Edge (Soul Blade in the USA), and talks about why he remains a continuing threat — something few other bosses in the series (aside from Nightmare) have been able to do.

SoulCalibur VI drops on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on October 19, 2018.
