Lee Chaolan / Violet



As Heihachi Mishima's adopted son, Lee Chaolan was originally entitled to the Mishima Zaibatsu just as much as Kazuya. As Kazuya's adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing fitting of the Mishima clan. Before the events of the original Tekken, Heihachi sent Lee to America to take care of the Mishima Zaibatsu's operations there, and to continue his business education. After being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu later on, Lee founded Violet Systems, a tech company specializing in development on humanoid robotics, and was quite successful. While Heihachi trained Kazuya in the art of Mishima Style Fighting Karate, Lee studied with Paul Phoenix and Marshall Law in America. This is why Lee originally shared several of Paul's and Law's moves. Lee is a bit narcissistic and always tries to act in an elegant manner. He's polite but very theatrical.

After he betrayed Heihachi and sided with Kazuya at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2, Lee was expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu. For quite sometime, thoughts of revenge consumed Lee. Eventually, he realized that it was pointless to kill an old man who probably had only a few years left in his life at best. With that realization, Lee distanced himself from fighting and moved to a mansion in the Bahamas to lead a solitary life. One day, he discovered a huge sell-off of G Corporation's stock online. Lee's intuition told him that something happened within the company. His intuition was correct. He hacked into their classified computer network and accessed their internal corporate communications. 

Lee learned that the Mishima Zaibatsu attacked G Corporation and caused significant damage to their research facilities. He also came across information that a new life form under development by the Mishima Zaibatsu would be completed by next year. In order to complete the life form, however, it appeared that they were missing a critical component... Oddly enough, an announcement was made for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 around the same time. Lee's fading passion for fighting was rekindled - along with his resentment towards the Mishima clan. In order to prevent the Mishima Zaibatsu from discovering his true identity, Lee signed up for the Tournament online under a false name. As an additional measure to mask his identity, he dyed his gleaming silver hair purple.

Lee took part in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to take revenge on Kazuya Mishima. However, the one who had opened the tournament was not Kazuya, but Jinpachi Mishima, and Chaolan, after learning this fact, lost interest in the tournament and returned to his home in the Bahamas. Soon afterwards, the MFG, led by Jin Kazama brought the world to chaos, and around the same time G Corporation became a major opposition. Surprised by G Corporation's sudden military action, Chaolan, a major shareholder, conducted a private investigation with the utmost secrecy and discovered that it was Kazuya who was the real power behind G Corporation actions. After obtaining information that Kazuya himself would take part in this tournament, Chaolan, using a shareholder's preferential treatment ticket, enters the tournament in order to get close to Kazuya.

When the world became embroiled in conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu (headed by Heihachi Mishima), and the G Corporation (secretly controlled by Kazuya Mishima), Lee had nothing but extreme hatred for both Heihachi and Kazuya. One method he choose to exact his revenge on the father and son was to covertly support Lars Alexandersson, who had turned on the Mishima Zaibatsu, but this was only the beginning of what he had in store for the Mishimas.

Since the very first game, Lee Chaolan was always one of the "most stylish" characters of Tekken. Both his look and fighting style has certainly come a long way, but he's still very much the same Lee that original Tekken players know and love. If you remember correctly, Lee started out as just a "clone" of Law as far as fighting style goes, but he acquired more and more of his own moves & stances with every sequel. By the time of Tekken 4, Lee's fighting style became entirely his own, and was further distinguished in later sequels.

Lee is primarily known for his flashy/fast kicks, and his cocky yet funny personality. His persona has become more vibrant over the years as well, and his appearance in various Tekken ending movies are unforgettably hilarious. "Ohhh Excellent!" Lee still brings tons of charisma to the Tekken family, and a Tekken game really wouldn't be complete without him. On a side note, Lee also has some of the best and most memorable martial arts "yells" of all time... Bwwooyiaaa!!!
