Rothion Alexander (ロティオン・アレクサンドル Rotion Arekusandoru) (born in 1564 - died in 1604) is Sophitia's husband, Pyrrha & Patroklos' father, Cassandra & Lucius' brother-in-law and a blacksmith. Rothion and Sophitia's first encounter happened when Sophitia collapsed after a vision of Soul Edge. They were married after Sophitia returned from her second search for Soul Edge and they had two children named Pyrrha & Patroklos.
He was the one who forged Sophitia's Ω Sword & Elk Shield from holy ore given to him by Hephaestus. He also forged another sword and shield for Sophitia to use when Cassandra stole the originals. He also forged Cassandra's Digamma Sword & reforged the Nemea Shield, which was damaged.
During and after the events of Soulcalibur IV
Rothion had begun to be looked upon with scorn, due to his inability to protect his wife and daughter. Fewer people begun to buy his weapons. Rothion became a tool maker because he felt the weapons he created as a blacksmith didn't protect anyone. He went to search for Sophitia, under the guise of trips with Patroklos, but he couldn't find a way into the Holy Roman Empire.
He even hid the disappearances of Sophitia and Pyrrha from Patroklos, which angered his brother-in-law.
He told his son stories about Sophitia's journeys as a holy warrior, inspiring the young boy to become a holy warrior too. When Patroklos turned fifteen years old, Rothion died due to illness. Before his last breath, he told his son about Sophitia's death at the hands of the malfested, and that Pyrrha was kidnapped by a girl wielding a ring blade.
By the time after Cassandra learned the tragic future from her fallen future self, she begin to confront both Rothion and Sophitia to spill the truth of Soul Edge’s resurrection in hopes to retire them for their family’s future, while Cassandra replaces Sophitia to hunt Soul Edge down in her stead.
After the wedding, he and Sophitia requests Cassandra to find the names for the said couple’s future children.
