Tempete Mireille Jauffret is a character in the Soul series of the fighting games made by Tim Proctor. 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

Tempete has been terrified by Soul Edge. She found out that Soul Edge is an evil sword created by Algol. Tempete ran to Bizen, Japan and found Mitsurugi who is a samurai there. She told him what happaned when Soul Edge scared her. Then, Mitsurugi wanted her to choose a fighting style from a person. By the time Tempete was nowhere to be found, she mysteriously disappeared. Hwang went into the streets in Rouen, France to find Tempete's parents. He felt sorry about the time when Tempete Jauffret mysteriously disppeared and she is nowhere to be found. It seems that Tempete is about to lose her life, so Hwang tried to found her before she disappears. When Tempete tries to curse her weakness, Frankie tries to murder her with his nunchaku. Tempete ran off and search for Hwang. Hwang was looking for her and she felt like she might use a nunchaku as a weapon. Tempete said that nunchaku are better than rapiers. Because of this, Tempete is bad at wielding a rapier. She went home and tried to think of a fighting style from someone who wields a nunchaku.

Pre-Soul Calibur IIIEdit

Tempete took a boat to Okinawa, Japan to find Maxi there. He is a pirate in Okinawa, Japan and Tempete told him that she wants to use a nunchaku and fight with Shissen Karihadi. So Maxi taught her how to fight like him. Once Tempete went to back to Rouen, France, she searched for Amy who was lost in the streets. Amy was lonely and Tempete wanted her to do a big responsibility.

Soul Calibur IIIEdit

Physical appearanceEdit

Tempete has blue eyes and curly, orange 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 from 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, Tempete's main weapon is Raimei. Nunchaku that is said to be able to generate lightning. It once belonged to the famous martial artist, Li Wang, but because he never took an apprentice, it went unused for a long period of time after his death. It is said that the wielder can increase the strength of the lightning by focusing his will.

Soul Calibur IVEdit

In Soul Calibur IV, Tempete's main weapon is Huosen.

Soul Calibur VEdit

In Soul Calibur V, Tempete wields an orange version of Roc. That weapon is similar to Maxi's Huosen from Soul Calibur IV.

Soul Calibur Endless RageEdit

In Soul Calibur Endless Rage, Tempete's main weapon is the same from Soul Calibur IV.

Fighting StyleEdit

Tempete is extremely bad at wielding a rapier, because she doesn't know how to use it. However, Maxi taught her how to use a nunchaku and learn the way of Shissen Karihadi.

Critical FinishEdit

Tempete 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

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


Tempete's outfit in Soul Calibur III consists of an off the shoulder dress that is below the ankle length and has a huge slit on the right side of the dress. She mostly wears gloves, a choker, and long boots. Her outfit is a black color. In Soul Calibur IV, she wears the same dress that Hilde wears in her 2P costume, but black. In Soul Calibur V, she wears a similar dress to that one from 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.
