Schwarzwind (German for "black wind") is a group of fictional characters within the Soul series. Siegfried began to socialize with them prior to the events of Soul Edge (Soul Blade), and he soon became the leader of their band of thieves. A vast majority of the members hail from the Holy Roman Empire and are mainly encamped in the dark forests.
