So, what is Create-A-Soul? Well, it allows you to create a very, very customizable character.
Everything from clothes and armor down to the color of their eyes and lips is customizable. Your character will have
a personality, voice, fighting style, and you get to choose it all.
After you choose male of female, You choose a job for your character.
The character you create will have an occupation, which is basically their role in the game. Each occupation determines
the fighting styles and weapons your character can choose, so choose the style you like best.
These are the jobs:

from nature and a raw instinct for survival.

Your character's personality isn't determined by a set of preset personalities, but rather by what he or she wears. The
more grim and evil-looking the outfit, the more evil-oriented the person will be. Likewise, the more bright and happy the
outfit, the more good-oriented the person will be.
In Create-A-Soul, you will notice two meters under the character's photo. These are important. The top meter is
the Good-Evil Meter, while the bottom is the Light-Dark Meter. Certain outfits will push the meters towards one end of the
meter. The top meter will determine if your person is good or evil. If the meter is pushed more into the blue, your person
is a good guy. If it's more into the red, the character's evil. If it's about in the middle, the character is neutral.
The bottom meter determines personality. If it's in the blue, the person is bright, cheery, and sorta preppy (eewwww).
However, if it's in the red, the person is dark, mean, and often seems Gothic or emo (except for the part about cutting themselves
and whining while the do it. F*cking whiners) If it's in the middle, the character has a normal personality. You can have
the top meter in the blue, and have the bottom in red. This will make them good but with a dark personality, and vice versa.
Try different outfits for different combinations.
These are the features you can customize:
All (selects from some preset options)
All of these features (with the exceptions of voice and face) can have their colors customized. In addition, you can choose
from one of the preset options, or use different combos of items.
Standard Character Color Edit
This isn't part of Create-A-Soul, but you can customize the colors of characters such as Nightmare and Mitsurugi. When
choosing a character, pressing L1 or R1 (or was it L2 or R2?) will change their costume. When you edit the character's color,
hit the button until you get to a costume that says "Color Edit". This is the character's new, custom colored outfit. It's
definitley a good way to change Xianghua's crappy *shudders* PINK outfit.
There are only two flaws to this mode: voices and body build. There are only four voice options for each gender, so custom
characters and most of the special characters sound the same. Also, it doesn't have a body build option. So characters will
all look the same. (aww, no character with a Mariah Carey body......) Hopefully, this will be fixed in SC3 Arcade Edition
or the possible Soul Calibur 4.
