"I am Soki - Slayer of demons, destroyer of darkness! I am the Oni of the Ashes!"
TATSUNOKO VS CAPCOM BIO:
Soki, a young warrior equipped with easily identifiable blue armor, is on a mission to destroy the evil Genma. By absorbing souls of the Genma he defeats, he awakens the demon’s power within him and turns into the ultimate Onimusha. Soki’s real name is Hideyasu Yuki, but he was given the nickname of Soki in honor of his wild fighting style, which is similar to the Demon God’s style.
Soki is the main protagonist in Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams. He is a strong warrior who possesses the dark power of the Oni, referred as the Blue Oni. Having learned about Hideyoshi's insidious scheme, he sets out on a journey to burn the Genma trees and defeat the Genma running rampant across the land. Wielding two swords with such grace, precision and power, Sōki is soon referred to by townsfolk as "Oni of the Ash". He is also called the "Black Oni" due to his extreme resemblance to the Oni God. Soki uses a variety of heavy broadswords and katanas.
Power, range and defense are Soki's true strengths. His quick sword pokes can punish opponents who try to dash in recklessly, outranging most frontal offense with ease and allowing him to chain together complex combos thanks to the large area covered by his swinging blade. Though he lacks offensive mixups, he has super armor and counters to help him catch the opponent off guard. Because he is a little bit on the slow side, he tends to prefer to keep the opponent at medium range.
