How Algol entered the Tourney

Algol, also known as "The Hero King," was able to obtain SoulEdge and, with an indomitable will, avoided being controlled by it. According to the legend, he used the sword to spread peace among the lands. He was playing Super Smash Bros. with his son, Acturus, until the Smash Bros. Tourney was announced. Algol said to his son "I promise I'll bring home a trophy." and left for the Tourney.
