King (King of Fighters / Art of Fighting)

King


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

King is one of the SNK video game characters who started in a defunct series (namely Art of Fighting, which started in 1994) then transitioned to King of Fighters appearances.

She’s a flashy kickboxer who first opposed, then permanently allied with, the heroes of Art of Fighting (Ryo Sakazaki, Robert Garcia and Yuri Sakazaki).


Background

  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: Jan (younger brother).
  • Group Affiliation: Formerly Mr. Big’s mob, Team Gorgeous, Women Fighters Team, Kyoryukken Karate Team.
  • Height: 5’9” Weight: 130 lbs.
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Blonde


Powers and Abilities

King employs a mess of kickfighting techniques that seem to mix Thai, French and Korean styles plus acrobatic techniques. Some of her kicks produce an energy projectile.


Description

When introduced, King was passing herself as a man for security reasons. She presented as increasingly feminine over time, perhaps to reflect the growth of her self-defence skills.

She’s now quite obviously a woman, but she still continues to wear a purple tuxedo in every single appearance.


Quotes

(When asked what she likes the most) “Perhaps I should say my beautiful face.” (laughs)

“I’m a vegetarian so anything without meat is fine.”


DC Universe History

King can be inserted as is. Obviously she’d work better in a martial arts setting. She probably has connections to Richard Dragon and of course Lady Shiva.
