BIO:

Younger sister to Nina Williams, Anna is a highly skilled fighter. She utilizes a style of "assassination martial arts" which are based in Aikido. While Anna rivals her sister, she still cares for her a great deal (even though she probably wouldn't admit it). In the second King of Iron Fist tournament, Nina was hired to assassinate the sponsor of the tournament, Kazuya Mishima. Whether at Kazuya's discretion or Anna's own volition, Anna became a bodyguard for Kazuya. It is likely that Anna's intervention prevented her sister from carrying out her contract, and Nina was later captured by Mishima Zaibatsu forces and used in Doctor Boskonovitch's cryonics ('cold-sleep') research. Learning about this, Anna volunteered to be another test subject, requesting that she be woken in the future at the same time as Nina. Her reasons for doing so remain ambiguous, though the game suggests that Anna would have felt lonely without Nina and/or jealous at the thought of her sister's youth being preserved.

After being placed in suspended animation during the second King of Iron Fist Tournament, Nina was awoken 19 years later by the influence of the recently excavated Ogre, who compelled her to assassinate Jin Kazama. As per her request, Anna was awoken at the same time as her sister, though she was unaffected by Ogre's influence. Nina also began to suffer ill effects from the 'cold-sleep', resulting in long term memory loss. In an act of compassion, Anna set out to stop Nina from once again becoming an assassin, and to help her recover her past.

Nina decides to make contact with Anna in hopes of restoring her memory. Unfortunately, their meeting serves only to trigger Nina's lost feelings of hostility towards her sister, and she immediately opens fire. Anna retaliates, and the reunion descends into a gunfight which lasts for days. The sisters eventually reach a stalemate and agree to settle things for good at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5.

After the humiliating defeat from her older sister and enemy, Nina Williams... Anna sought revenge. She didn't want it to end this way. Nina though, has already gone into hiding. Hearing rumors that Nina Williams has joined forces with the new Mishima Zaibatsu, Anna Williams decided to join forces with G Corporation.

Even though Anna has been a staple of Tekken since the beginning, I think she's still one of the "sleeper" characters of the series. She is originally a "clone design" of Nina, so it took her a while to develop into her own character. She was always known for her sexy taunts & mannerisms, but it wasn't until Tekken 5 that she acquired a very different moveset from her sister. Since then, has developed nicely as a design and now has a ton of unique moves & animations.

Even though she has some cool moves, she lacks the fluidity & flashiness of other Tekken fighters. Furthermore, she doesn't necessarily represent a specific martial art like other characters from Tekken. However, she is known for fighting dirty... which defines her fighting style as a whole, right along with her brutal throw techniques. While easily recognizable, her default outfit slightly bores me after all this time, but her many alternate outfits and customizations are pretty damn sexy. Namco has always given Anna badass alternate costumes for some reason... ;) On a side note, I created a smokin' hot "goth" Anna in Tekken 6. <3
