George von Krone was the father of Hilde and was King of Wolfkrone until he lost his sanity to the destructive rains of the Evil Seed, virtually transforming him into an animal.
George was able to overcome religious conflict in his kingdom by establishing new laws and policies which encouraged religious coexistence through diplomacy. He was also able to maintain a strong military presence and was both a gifted warrior and tactician.
After he fell into madness, the king was sentenced to live out the rest of his days in an isolated chamber, located at the very top of the Wolfkrone castle tower. His complete mental shift was so severe that he could not recognize his own daughter. After the events of Soulcalibur IV, he disappeared and has not been seen since.
