Irene Flare Berdahl is a character in the Soul series of the fighting games made by Toshiyuki Endo. She made her debut in Soul Calibur III, and has returned in Soul Calibur IV, Soul Calibur V, and Soul Calibur Endless Rage.


Early lifeEdit

Flare was a poor girl in Rouen, France and she had no parents. She felt sad when nobody was with her, so she went to China to see Li Long. Flare was excited when he uses a nunchaku, so she said that she likes nunchakus.

Physical appearanceEdit

Flare has light blue eyes and curly, gold hair. She has long hair with two curls at the front (Fairy Curls). In Soul Calibur III, she has short hair with curls at the front, similar to Viola's in Soul Calibur V. She has a sweet and young face, similar to Abelia's. She has white skin.


Soul Calibur IIIEdit

In Soul Calibur III, Flare's main weapon is Chained Kozuka. Two short swords, each with a short blade and long hilt, connected with thread. It was originally conceived by a street performer as a prop for use in acrobatics. It definitely lacks the sturdiness of a real weapon.

Soul Calibur IVEdit

In Soul Calibur IV, Flare's main weapon is the same from Soul Calibur III.

Soul Calibur VEdit

In Soul Calibur V, Flare wields a maroon version of Chained Sickles.

Soul Calibur Endless RageEdit

In Soul Calibur Endless Rage, Flare wields a maroon version of Chained Kozuka.

Fighting StyleEdit

Flare always uses a nunchaku and her fighting style is Shissen Karihadi.

Critical FinishEdit

Flare throws a few nunchaku blows to the opponent who is stunned and then thrown airborne by a palm strike. She then leaps in the air and delivers a fatal kick to the opponent's neck or ribs, ending the fight.

Critical EdgeEdit

Flare punches her opponent twice, and finally blasts them with an elbow finisher.


Flare's outfit consists of an off the shoulder dress that is below the ankle length and has a long slit on the right side of the dress and stilletos. Her outfit is a maroon color. In Soul Calibur IV, she wears the same dress that Hilde wears in her 2P costume, but maroon. In Soul Calibur V, she wears a similar dress to that one in Soul Calibur III, except it has two slits on each side of the dress. In Soul Calibur Endless Rage, she wears the same outfit from Soul Calibur III.
