is a man of extraordinary intelligence and a scholar in many fields, including
history, medicine, war, and art. His studies about the history of humanity
brought him to the conclusion that humanity would self-destruct through wars
and other calamities. His fanatical love for the people led him to enact a
terrifying plan to save them from themselves.
His weapon is named
Palindrome, and itís a pair of gloves. The right glove includes a fragment
of Soul Edge, while the left one has a piece of SoulCalibur. Azwel draws his
power from the memories of past battles, preserved within those fragments.
While he appears unarmed, his gloves allow him to summon a variety of deadly
weapons, which he can use with brutal effects.

Azwel, I actually
like his "look"... but he's sooooo damn cheap. When I think Soul
Calibur, I think cool (and sometimes authentic) martial arts based fighting
styles. Past Soul Calibur designs have proven that "fantasy"
style characters can work well in the series, as well... but... Az-wel
is like putting a freakin' BlazBlue
character in Soul Calibur. He even has Jin
Kisaragi's stupid "ice car" move. lol. (Pro Tip: Reversal Edge
that shit). Azwel has the "SNK boss syndrome vibe" about him, but he's
also a default selectable character... which may be off-putting for some Soul
Calibur fans and serious players alike. He's a very difficult character to
read in the hands of a skilled player, but thankfully Azwel isn't as overpowered
as he seems at first.
In short, Soul Calibur 6 would be just fine (perhaps better) without a
ridiculous moveset such as Azwel's. In fairness, Azwel's moveset is pretty
interesting otherwise, especially his "random special attack" element.
His animations are well done and all, but he's "a bit too much" for
the Soul series if you ask me. Thankfully, he should never appear in any
future games (considering the storyline). (And that's not a spoiler, that's just
basic common sense since SC6 is a prequel.) I'm glad the SC heroes
took care of this bastard early on so he didn't ruin anyone's fun in later
