Description Edit | History

"Raziel is a central character in Eidos Interactive's Legacy of Kain series of video games, the protagonist of the Soul Reaver story arc. Initially appearing in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, the character was created by a team of storywriters at Crystal Dynamics, notably series director Amy Hennig, and conceptualized by various Crystal Dynamics artists, with his in-game appearance directed and designed by Daniel Cabuco. In all of his English appearances, he has been voiced by Michael Bell, while in Japanese dubs he is vocalized by Nobuyuki Hiyama.

Portrayed as both an anti-hero and tragic hero, Raziel is a soul-devouring vampire-turned-wraith, introduced in Soul Reaver as one of six lieutenants raised to serve series eponym and protagonist, Kain. Upon evolving beyond Kain through growing wings, Raziel is executed for his transgression, but is revived by The Elder God as a reaver of souls, bent on avenging himself by slaying his brothers and former master. Over the course of his journey, his history is revealed in reverse, and his motivations and loyalties gradually shift as he unearths the truth behind his cyclic destiny. Raziel stands in contrast to Kain as an ethically upright and moral character; however, the treacherous situations in which he finds himself rarely lend themselves to unambiguous ethical judgments, and he often ends up doing the wrong thing for the right reason. Raziel is either being lied to or being told half-truths or what they think the truth is.

Praised for his visual appearance, character development and Bell's vocal performance, Raziel has been well-received by the gaming media and players alike."
