Soulcalibur II - Wikipedia
Maxi went to see the village medicine man, who performed a secret ritual using a strange metal fragment, which was actually a fragment of Soul Edgeand several days later, Maxi left the village, promising to return some day. He did not realize, however, that all memory of his traveling companions had been lost as a result of the ritual While inspecting the ruins, he found a man in tattered clothing there, clutching something and muttering incoherently.
This man was Kunpaetku -- Astaroth's creator, who had managed to escape the shrine's destruction at the last minute. Kunpaetku mostly ignored Maxi until he asked him about Astaroth. Kunpaetku cursed Astaroth, calling him a failure.
It was then that Maxi realized that Kunpaetku created him. A strange urge to kill Kunpaetku began rising within Maxi. As he drew his weapon, the object in Kunpaetk's hand, a fragment of Soul Edgebegan to glow with a faint red light.
Kunpaetku then looked at Maxi madly, noticing that he had Soul Edge inside his body. Upon hearing this, Maxi killed Kunpaetku and kicked the fragment of Soul Edge into the ruins below.
He felt an uneasy throbbing in his heart, born from his desire to kill Kunpaetku. Maxi then suddenly remembered a man who became lost to evil after having lost everything, and how he suffered after returning to his senses.
But Maxi couldn't remember who this person was, no matter how hard he tried. Despite this, he decided to continue his search for Astaroth. Soulcalibur IV Edit Maxi had come to a trading por in India to pay his respects to his friends who had been murdered by grotesque creatures, and renew his vow to avenge them.
There he reunited with Kilik and Xianghua, and long-forgotten memories came flooding back. But while Maxi's body was a host to a fragment of the cursed sword and Kilik held a piece of the Dvapara-Yuga, they could not journey together. Thus, Maxi had to make a painful decision to turn his back to his friends and their entreaties, and leave them behind.
Maxi went to the woods to take shelter from a squall, and as he brooded there in the darkness, he was visited by a disciple of the cursed sword. A girl who had fallen into darkness. Maxi's current strength was no match for that monster; there was only one way, Soul Edge. Only with the power of the cursed sword could he win. Maxi continued to stare her down in silent malice, but she had him now.
In parting, she told him of Osthreinsburg, the cursed land. That was where he could find bouth Soul Edge and his revenge. The rain had stopped, but the menacing dark clouds lingered in the sky, blocking the rays of sun. It was darker than anything he had ever seen, but he would brave the darkness.
Each step Maxi took was heavy and slow, and his legs seemed to creak with pain, but he did not stop. Soulcalibur V Edit Maxi drew power from the fragment of the cursed sword Soul Edge still lodged in his body, but it came with a price.
Even after defeating Astaroth and avenging his crewmates, he remained consumed with an insatiable lust for revenge. Not wanting to drag his friends down with him, Maxi left Kilik and Xianghua to walk a dark and lonely path. Living in the shadows, his humanity gradually slipped away-- until he found salvation at the hands of Edge MasterKilik's former teacher.
The old man taught Maxi how to live with the shard of the cursed sword he carried within him, and in time, Maxi managed to suppress its foul influence. Kunpaetku ordered his creation, Astaroth, to find the demonic blade.
As he watched Astaroth depart from the shrine, the grand priest laughed to himself as he planned to keep the Soul Edge and become a god himself. Unknown to Kunpaetku, however, Ares had possessed Astaroth with his servants, the Keres, to ensure that Kunpaetku would not betray him.

When Astaroth finally found Soul Edge, he had lost half of himself during the battle with Sophitia. Soulcalibur II Edit Deciding that Ares would not be pleased with the sword in this condition, he agreed to help the azure knight, Nightmare, build his power by collecting souls by slaughtering countless victims. Four years later, signs of Soul Edge began to re-emerge, and Ares resurrected Astaroth in an attempt to retrieve the evil blade once again.
This time, though, his body had been infused with shards of the Soul Edge, making him more powerful and ruthless than ever before. Astaroth had set out on the trail for the evil blade, but a problem arose. The grand priest Kunpaetku had realized his golem was not behaving as originally instructed — that another force now claimed ownership over Astaroth since his initial creation. In order to reclaim Astaroth as his servant, Kunpaetku performed a ritual on the lowest level of the cult's temple and unleashed a powerful curse on him.
Astaroth fought back against the curse, for he had become an ideal host for the Keres, because of the fragments of Soul Edge he had taken in during his resurrection. He would destroy anyone who stood in his way, and now the cult had become nothing more than an obstacle in his path. Astaroth entered the temple to destroy the cult once and for all, and his whirlwind of destruction mowed down everything in his path. Soulcalibur III Edit The curse had only fueled him with anger, and he was determined to destroy anything and everything he saw.
The temple of the heretics had become a crucible of chaos. Astaroth pursued Kunpaetku into the deepest part of the temple, but the grand priest managed to escape at the last minute. Only the words the priest left behind remained, telling him that he was nothing more than a failed doll modeled after a mere human.
Astaroth immediately stopped in his tracks, distracted with this new found horrible knowledge, and began to search the temple's archives for his roots. He had been made in the image of a man called only by the name "White Giant. He then proceeded to destroy the temple completely until it became unrecognizable debris, and nothing was left but chaos and rubble.
