Amy Sorel (エイミ・ソレル, Eimi Soreru) is a character in the Soul series of fighting games.
In her debut appearance, Amy is the smallest character and noticably young, she had green eyes and vermillion hair tied into elaborately curled pigtails. In Soulcalibur IV, her eyes changed colour to red. She is the only character to dress in a Gothic Lolita theme. As of Soulcalibur VI, she wears a lolita bonnet and her dress became slightly longer and covers her shoulders. Her thigh-high stockings changed to dark sheer tights.
Amy has a generally calm and collected nature within and out of battle. She usually interacts with a slight sense of arrogance in her attitude towards opponents.
- Romanian Valley - Castle Siege (SCIII:AE) (Note: she shares this stage with Raphael)
- Wolfkrone Monument (SCIV)
- Dark Capital Ostrheinsburg (SC:BD)
- Cursed Moonlit Woods (SCVI)
- Amy's age is officially listed as 'unknown'. However, a hint at her age is hidden in Raphael's extended Soulcalibur II profile, which states that she was "less than 10" when he first met her.
- Amy's hair isn't naturally curled, as you can see in Soulcalibur II intro she has very straight, stiff hair. However, she is a natural redhead.
- Her Destined Battle in Soulcalibur III is Raphael, and her Destined Battle in Soulcalibur IV is Kilik.
- Amy shares several moves with Raphael, such as Bloody Funeral, Undertaker and Pure Sacrifice.
- In Soulcalibur IV, Amy's secondary costume is a palette swap.
- Amy is the shortest female character in the series. Because of this, when certain throws are used on her, one example being Raphael's Death Puppet, there is a noticeable distance between the area where she is and the area where the throwing character is supposedly manipulating her. In Death Puppet Raphael is supposed to put his sword under the opponent's neck, but when used on Amy, the sword is above her head, though she reacts the same way.
- Amy, shortly after Raphael, appears in the Soulcalibur II introduction. This is the first time within the Soul series that a character appears before becoming a playable character.
- In the fan-made series Dead Fantasy, Final Fantasy character Rinoa uses a fighting style that vaguely resembles that of Amy's.
- As a character, Amy's script is somewhat limited. In Soulcalibur III, she is only capable of saying her own name (and only does so in the VS Screen when a button is pressed). In Soulcalibur IV she is given lines, but her Japanese voice-over of her Critical Finish does not have an opening line and she has no lines in her ending.
- Like standard characters, Amy's outfit as well as her voice are unique, but they are not made into Create-a-Fighter parts.
- Amy shares her voice with Lynette. The two of them are voiced by Heather Hogan.
- In Soulcalibur III: Arcade Edition, Amy has a specially-designed alternate costume which is not available in the console versions of the game.
- Amy taunts "I don't understand." If she taunts to Raphael, she says "Huh....Stupid."
- Amy's eyes were originally green. Like Raphael, they changed colours after becoming malfested.
- Amy and Marienbard share the same voice and at the same time are the most faithful to Raphael.
- Amy's nickname is "Fluttering Butterfly of the Night", which happens to be the name of her equipment in character creation mode (i.e. Night Butterfly Boots).
Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny
- Amy has both Night Butterfly Boots and Night Butterfly Socks in Character Creation Mode, the only difference between the two is that Night Butterfly Socks have leggings (and still have boots), while Night Butterfly Boots are lacking any leggings.
- In his artwork, Raphael is holding Amy's skull ornament with a torn ribbon. This most likely means that during the seventeen years between Soulcalibur IV and Soulcalibur V, Amy was lost and he is looking for her.
- Amy's weapon, Albion, appears as one of Raphael's weapons, now being named after Amy herself.
- During her reveal trailer, an orb resembling Viola's appears as well as her theme, "Dance of the Oracle" plays. This further suggest that they can be the same person.
- In her Soul Chronicle, it is confirmed that Viola and Amy are the same person.
- In Amy's render background, the wildflowers and roses that symbolize Amy are in bloom, protecting the Sword and Lion, the emblem of the Sorel family.
