Viola is a somewhat new character in Soul Calibur V. The reason is because there are rumors speculating that she is actually Amy from the previous Soul series.

As traveling companions, they made for an odd pair: a werewolf and a fortune-teller, both with pasts shrouded in mystery. Their journey would continue for some time, until Viola's lost memories returned...
