Zasalamel is a playable character in the SoulCalibur fighting games by Namco. He debuted in SoulCalibur III (2005) as one of the main characters. He becomes the antagonist and boss character Abyss. Zasalamel uses a Scythe as his weapon.

While his soul gained the ability to reincarnate everytime he dies he returned only in SoulCalibur IV (2008) and its PSP port SoulCalibur: Broken Destiny (2009). It is possible he might be one of the returning characters in SoulCalibur VI (2018). Update, Namco revealed that Zasalamel returns in SCVI on the 22th February 🙂 

Zasalamel is the only black character in the SoulCalibur series so far.
