Default Re: Soulcalibur III (Tira, Sophitia, Create-A-Character) Tira =/= Jennifer Hale

Quick bump regarding a couple of SCIV CAS voices.

Scheherazade / Female 1

This was previously pinned to Stephanie Sheh here, and is listed on a bunch of other sites too. Listening now though, I don't think this actually is Stephanie Sheh. She's clearly Serious in SCV, but here, it just doesn't match up.

I can't say for sure since I don't know her that well, but this might be Amy Gross, aka "Amy Rose". She voiced March and Salsa in Eternal Sonata not long before SCIV and her voice has a similar tone and enunciation.

Angol Fear / Female 6

This was previously pinned to Brianne Siddall, but again, I don't think this is her. I think this is actually Tara Sands.

I have to admit I'm not the most familiar with Brianne's range, but considering she's mostly known for lower boyish voices, the fact that Angol is so distinctly "womanly" without any of that coming through is a knock against that. This line especially is very Tara. Best comparison is her Olwen or Sonya, and while I can't remember what the exact role is, I'm pretty sure I've heard similar voice/delivery in 4Kids dubs here and there. And circumstantially, Brianne has no history with Cup of Tea while Tara did Tales of Symphonia 2 for them the same year.


Everything else previously still holds up aside from now I'm convinced Main Bad Guy is Anthony Jenkins, now that I'm more removed from the process. A lot of his lines are VERY Gangrel.

Our Upbeat Girl, Janice Kawaye, maybe?

I don't think so. If you listen to her Jenny in My Life as a Teenage Robot, while there is a very very slight similarity, both she and Scheherazade speak at roughly the same pitch yet they don't sound all that alike.

Do you have some voice samples that show why it could be Janice? I don't hear it.

EDIT: Listened to the clip you posted. Doesn’t sound like Scheherazade really, other than they’re both women.

Upbeat Girl is clearly Janice, Scheherazade... is not. Far too nasal rather than bubbly, and I'd agree that I've never heard anything like her from Janice or within her range, again unlike Upbeat Girl which is dead-on plus she's credited anyway. Stephanie is also in SCV and similarly is more recognizably Stephanie there than Scheherazade is. Disagreements in judgement are par for the course in voice ID'ing but if others have concerns with a conclusion you feel more positive on please try to engage said concerns directly and provide more of a process/logic especially since the resemblance here is only vague.

I noticed an older comment by doodlebugfour suggesting that SCIII/IV/V Sophitia might be Catherine Taber and I... think they might be onto something.

Here's the vocal comparison. If you ask me, I think this is actually pretty dang close.

Sophitia (SCIII)
Sophitia (SCIV)
Cat Taber game demo - (0:58 - 1:06 is especially close, that is REALLY Sophitia, but the whole demo is pretty comparable)
Various Cat Taber audiobook demos

First of all, let's look at Cat's resume before 2005 to see if it's plausible.



A few small acting parts and some additional voices in games. She only started doing VO in games in 2003. Yeah, I completely buy her taking a non-union gig in 2005.



Even in 2008 it doesn't seem too farfetched. She would've had Clone Wars lined up, but right at the start I don't think she'd be putting all her eggs in one basket.

2012 is the absolute cutoff point, I'd think. By now she was definitely pretty comfy with Clone Wars and her VO career was much more established. I think this would've probably been a "one last time" thing maybe in part as a favour to COT.

Here's where we start getting a little circumstantial.

1 - In 2007/2008, Cat was signed to AVO Talent. This is the same talent agency as Wally Wingert and Grant George. She credits her agent for landing the part of Padme, so it's possible the agency had good luck in landing their VAs parts in SC.

2 - SCV has "Katie McNulty" listed in the credits. "Catherine" can be shortened to "Kate". "Katie" is a variation of Kate. "McNulty" is an Irish last name. Cat Taber is of Irish descent. Coincidence? It certainly adds up more than the argument that this refers to Tira's VA (which was almost entirely predicated on the idea that Eden is Elysium/Sophitia, which is definitely false).

OK so...

https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com...ening/Gangrel/

This is Anthony Jenkins in FE Awakening.

https://youtu.be/s6KNv5pLTAE

This is the "Main Bad Guy" voice in SCV. I think it's fairly safe to say these are the same person.

But what about Dampierre?

https://youtu.be/GAKUT2C61sY?t=30

Does something seem a little different?

https://youtu.be/GAKUT2C61sY?t=152

Maybe just a little... Joker-y?

https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com...Origins/Joker/

Yeah, I'm going there. I'm gonna posit that Anthony Jenkins was NOT Dampierre and it was, of all people, Troy Baker this whole time.

https://youtu.be/UcyB2S6o87U

Here is Dampierre's full voice set.

https://youtu.be/JIx5drm2rdU?t=18

Here's a sample from the PSP game, he doesn't really sound any different there from what I can tell.


Also worth noting that in SCV Anthony Jenkins was credited with the actors who did voice alone and no facial capture. (IE the other CAC voices and Mitch Urban.) Which would be somewhat odd since Dampierre's face is plainly visible.

Since they arenít on the site, I figured Iíd finish off what remains of the playable voices for 6, those being the creation voices. The first 8 choices for each gender are recycled audio from Soul Calibur 5, those being David Vincent, Kaiji Tang, Sam Riegel, Kyle Hebert, Travis Willingham, Anthony Jenkins, Richard Epcar, Kirk Thornton, Janice Kawaye, Eden Riegel, Ali Hillis, Stephanie Sheh, Jessica Straus, Kirsten Potter, Nicole Balick, and Cindy Robinson.

There are 4 new voices for each gender not counting the non-human ones. These are

Adventurous Youth: Michael Sinterniklaas

https://youtu.be/XfW0o2v2l_I



Narcissist: Griffin Burns (Confirmed on Twitter, but canít seem to find the tweet)

https://youtu.be/3tTj531MBOQ



Middle Aged Wildman: Edward Bosco (Thought it was Patrick at first, but now Iím confident itís Ed)

https://youtu.be/Skh2HIDSjJ4

(Edís Devo for comparison)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...F9hxmbI&t=1m8s



Wizened Warlord: Frank Todaro

https://youtu.be/UVvYqLfOYz4

(This was the most difficult one for me to figure out, but luckily I found a panel where Frank does this voice)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...kEF8s&t=19m42s



Malicious Imp: Cristina Vee (confirmed on twitter)

https://youtu.be/qw_wQ19dIVA

Confirmation https://twitter.com/cristinavee/stat...162618373?s=21



Daring Adventurer: Marisha Ray

https://youtu.be/qx-1s1fY27s


Cool Headed Captain: Brian Palencia

https://youtu.be/LYZ5mJR_L64
