Here’s how Bandai Namco describes the returning character:
Ivy is one of the most famous mainstays in the SOULCALIBUR series and she returns to destroy all who challenge her in SOULCALIBUR VI. Born to an aristocratic English family, her early years were spent in a loving environment, that is until her father’s obsession with alchemy and immortality gained by obtaining the Souls Blade drove him to an early grave. Shortly thereafter, Ivy’s mother passed away and so began her journey to destroy that which brought such despair to her family – Soul Blade.
