Vercci (ベルチー Beruchii) is an Italian weapons merchant, known as the "Merchant of Death" (死の商人 Shi no Shounin) due to his business with the Spanish Armada. Vercci desired Soul Edge to form part of his collection of rare weapons, and Voldo stood as the head of the expeditions in his search, even contracting the services of the feared Spanish Captain Cervantes de Leon, and later accompanied Vercci when he decided to take the search personally. When word came that the Italian Wars broke on Italy and that Vercci's possessions were the first targets, Vercci grew mad.

Vercci moved his fleet, his only remaining possession, on an uninhabited island off the coast of in the Mediterranean Sea and dug a 50-mt deep shaft that would serve as his tomb and vault. Voldo would later be instructed to slay the sailors that helped in the construction to avoid the location of Vercci's "Money Pit" to be revealed, then later shut himself with his deceased master.


  • The Money Pit would later become Voldo's staple stage, featuring in every game in different locations like the main vault in Soul Edge or the Top Tier in Soulcalibur II.
  • It is possible to control Vercci via the use of cheat devices. He uses Cervantes's fighting style. For some reason he is called "Belti" during this. This may be due to a translation error - i.e., B and V are very similar in Japanese alike R/L, and cci/ti might have the same issue. It's hard to tell whether his name was supposed to be Vercci or Belti, but considering the name has been Vercci for the whole series, Vercci is probably the correct translation. On the other hand, Belti could be his original name, then it might have been changed to Vercci.
  • The rather curious official description of Voldo's family ties in Soulcalibur V suggests that Vercci is still alive, in one way or another. Whether this is true or it's just Voldo's hallucination, remains to be seen.
  • He is voiced by Takashi Nagasako in Japanese and Dean Harrington in English for his appearance in Voldo's Soul Edge ending.
