It's Thursday, which means it's time for the Cosplay Babe of the Week. This week's entry has us dipping back into the pool of Namco's Soul Calibur with the lovely Tira. Tira is unique for her outfit and appearance as much as her deadly hula hoop. As usual we've included a mini bio for the fans of Tira.
If you're a die hard fan and actually clicked to read the article, enjoy the bio below. Although I have a feeling you're already looking at this week's gallery.
Mini Bio courtesy of Wikia: Tira is a character in the Soul series of fighting games, a loyal servant of the evil Soul Edge. Tira is referred to as the "The Misguided Angel of Death" during her debut appearance in the official E3 teaser for Soulcalibur III. She made her first appearance in Soulcalibur III and appeared in the next installment, Soulcalibur IV. In Soulcalibur IV she undergoes a drastic evolution in design, exchanging the teal-colored hair, green rags, and feathered fringe she wore in Soulcalibur III for dark brown pigtails and a red ensemble. At first this dramatic change was speculated to be the outcome of one of Tira's epilogues in her Tales of Souls in Soulcalibur III, in which she was possessed by Soul Edge, but the real reason was to reflect her unstable new personality, as revealed in an interview with one of the character designers of Soulcalibur IV. She has also returned in the new videogame Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny.
Tira is nearly as ruthless and sadistic as her master, having no qualms with claiming the lives of her victims. She derives a demented form of amusement from others' suffering, apparently due to her upbringing as an assassin, and is lethally addicted to murdering others. When Soulcalibur III was released, many fans speculated that Tira suffered from some form of bipolarity due to her interchangeable and unstable emotions. In Soulcalibur IV, Tira develops two disparate personalities, both representing the opposite spectrums of her erratic emotions, from being exposed to Soul Calibur and Soul Edge's conflict.
