Darun Mister

Darun is a wrestling champion from India. As the champion of a private wrestling organization sponsored by a group of influential millionaires, Darun lived a lucrative lifestyle yet could not choose his own opponents. Then Darun's fortunes changes, as he was hired for a bodyguard for one of the millionaire's daughters, Pullum. During Puillum's travels, Darun was finally able to fight the best champions throughout the world. He eventually hears of Zangief's legendary wrestling status, and immediately seeks out the Russian wrestler to prove to himself that he is indeed the world's best grappler. Darun Mister's design is based on a Pehlwani wrestler (from the 1900's to the 1930's) known as The Great Gama.

Darun was one of the few fighting game grapplers in the early days who could give Zangief a run for his money. Also, his throw combos in SF EX2 actually give King a run for his money as well (but no doubt were inspired by King... since King pretty much invented throw combos).

Visually, Darun is a simple but very memorable design. Darun's ridiculously pointy mustache is convincingly epic, and his evil eyebrows compliment it, as well. Heh. His special moves are also pretty badass and present vivid ouch factor.
