Video Game Villains War
Cervantes is the original possessor of the Soul Edge, a powerful weapon sought after by the Lich King. The Lich King has one of his disciples, Zelgius, try to take it from Cervantes. The two clash blades, and it seems as if Zelgius is gaining the advantage. At the last second, Cervantes pulls out a gun and shoots the knight; his armor useless, Zelgius slumps to the ground, dead.
The Lich King cares little for Zelgius's defeat, sending a more accomplished disciple, Seifer, to finish the job. Cervantes holds his own against Seifer for a while, even putting the swordsman on the defensive. Once again, Cervantes tries to finish off his foe with a bullet, but Seifer absorbs the attack and pummels Cervantes with dark magic. Helpless, Cervantes is lifted into the air and killed, leaving the Soul Edge to Seifer.
But Cervantes manages to survive from beyond the grave. Now a ghost, Cervantes allies with the also newly resurrected LeChuck; the two form a zombie pirate army to rule the seas.
