BIO:

Michelle's daughter, Julia uses the same style of her mother. Julia was a college student studying archaeology. One day, she discovered that her native homeland was in danger of being covered by an encroaching desert; this was brought on by today's rapidly changing global ecosystem. Julia wanted to save her home, and she began her research on ecosystem restoration. Julia joined an advanced genetic research group led by Professor T that studied the biological mechanism of reforestation. Professor T's research grant came almost exclusively from G Corporation. In fact, G Corporation's supercomputers located at their high security research center were being used for the research. All their research data was stored on their file servers as well.

Julia was absorbed in her daily research, waiting for the day when her research on ecosystem restoration would be complete. When the research was completed, she would save her home. Julia learned from Professor T that their research was on hold indefinitely. The Mishima Zaibatsu attacked G Corporation's high security research center and stole all research data from her project. Julia didn't know a thing about G Corporation's secret research projects nor did she care about them. Yet she knew that she had to retrieve her research data from the Mishima Zaibatsu in order to save her home from becoming a desert in a few years time. Julia searched the net to gather information regarding the Mishima Zaibatsu. Her eyes lit up when she saw a web page announcing The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.

After recovering her lost data, Julia Chang completed the research needed Reforestation program and returned to her home of Arizona to meet with the individual helping her to implement it. A much older woman who was a property owner of a large area of Arizonian land waited for Julia upon her return, it was said that this woman could hear the voices of spirits. This woman offered to help Julia make her dreams of reforestation to become a reality, but before they parted, the woman told Julia of an ill-fated prophecy,

"The Devil is sure to return from Hell, should Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima ever cross paths. These two must not be allowed to fight." Julia said. She was doubtful about the prophecy, but while on a flight home she heard an announcement for the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 had been made. The woman's words were becoming a reality, and so Julia decided to enter the tournament. In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, she appears as her alter-ego, Jaycee.

When the Tekken series went 15 years into the future with Tekken 3, Namco decided to introduce a new, younger Indian chick in place of Michelle. Julia started off as a naturally cool design... her moveset built upon Michelle's core fighting style. In my opinion, Julia's design became a bit stale later, in Tekken 4 & 5... her cheap elbow juggle alone was enough to make people hate her with a passion. Thankfully, her later moveset/combo style in Tekken 6 promoted players to not use the silly elbow juggle and use flashier combos. ;)

In fairness, Julia is still a hot babe in a sexy Indian outfit, and for what kind of design she is, she's pretty effective overall. However, in my opinion, she's nowhere near as fleshed out or as flashy as some of the other fighters from Tekken. Oddly enough, Namco seemingly started to agree with me and decided to give Julia an entirely new design in Tekken Tag 2... now disguised as the female wrestler,
Jaycee! Really makes me wonder if Namco ever reads my reviews. lol.
