Pullum Purna



Pullum is a young girl from Saudi Arabia and the daughter of a very wealthy man. Pullum was walking through the halls of her millionaire father's mansion and noticed an odd silence from her grandfather's room. Normally and active and verbal student of Hinduism, Pullum's grandfather sat quietly and had a distant look in his eyes. He held a book in his hands that had one word printed on it: "Shadaloo." Pullum vowed to seek out the leader of "Shadaloo" and make them pay for brainwashing her grandfather. Seeking revenge, she hires Darun Mister as a bodyguard and sets off to track down M. Bison and other members of Shadaloo.

In Fighting EX Layer
, after her father’s disappearance, Purna rose up and governed her country in his stead. While trying to figure out a way to escape from the boredom of her daily life, Purna discovered a clue about her father’s disappearance.

Pullum is a pretty straight-forward and (some would say) "stereotypical" design from Capcom. While she's not too exciting of a design visually, she is one of the few Saudi Arabian characters of the fighting genre, which adds to her originality. I did like the fact that Capcom changed up her outfit from EX1 to EX2. The official character artwork definitely makes her look cool... love that artwork, and her facial expressions. Of course, Pullum doesn't exactly look that cool in the actual games. :/

Pullum has a pretty solid, interesting, and original moveset for a 2D fighting game character, and is fun to use. However, I think I remember her voice being incredibly annoying. I'm not sure, maybe I should dust off my SFEX box and relive some memories (hopefully the disk's in there. lol).
