He fights from his
soul, trained by a renowned master of martial arts. He shows up to battles
where only the strongest of men fight. With a bird-like-cry, he strikes
with his soulful "dragon attacks". Some think he is too self possessed,
which keeps women from getting close to him.
When Jann Lee was very
young, he was placed into a orphanage, either because his parents had died, or
they left him there following their escape China's Maoist regime. Jann Lee
seemed to have lived in poverty, have to wander the streets for food, and
faced many hardships. In order to protect himself and replace the feelings of
loss of his parents, Jann Lee taught himself how to fight from martial art
movies; especially Bruce Lee's films. As he grew up, moved on from his
feelings of loss, and he got skilled enough to get a job as a bouncer at a
high class club, making a decent living for himself.
Six years before the
first tournament, Jann Lee saved a young girl from a gang of thugs. Although
she was very grateful for being saved, she felt that she could have handled
the situation herself. This incident would start a strong obsession within the
girl and a life being chased for Jann Lee.
Jann Lee entered the
Dead or Alive Tournament for the sake of the fight. Now the self-taught master
of Jeet Kune Do, he seeks the thrill of battle whenever he can. During the
tournament, he meets the girl that he saved - Lei Fang
- who is ready to defeat him to prove that she is a great fighter like him.
However, Jann Lee wins and Lei Fang goes on to train harder.
