Julia, Julia, where for art thou, Julia ?

In the Street Fighter Alpha 3 storyline Thunder Hawk is searching for a missing member of his tribe. When he stumbles on Juli and recognizes her as Julia, the kidnapped girl from his tribe.

That’s all well and good until you dig a bit deeper and read the bios. Juli is originally from Germany. Even her name is German for July, as the dolls since they are all named after the months of the year.

It’s likely that Capcom intended to include more of the dolls as playable characters. Either they ran out of time or decided that 12 Cammy ripoffs was redundant. Or found Noemblu’s tomahawks difficult to animate or whatever.

Juli with closeup on fist

Regardless of the reason Noemblu was obviously intended to be from T-Hawk’s tribe. Her bio lists her as a “Latin American woman” and she wears a Native American headdress and carries two freakin’ tomahawks for crying out loud.

The low connection to T-Hawk in the game stats is mainly just for flavor. It’s entirely possible that while T-Hawk was seeking Noemblu out he stumbled upon Juli and managed to get some info out of her one way or the other.


Powers and Abilities

Juli like all the other dolls has been kidnapped and brainwashed into serving M. Bison. In all likelihood she’s the most powerful doll after:

  1. Cammy who’s a direct clone of Bison.
  2. And after her Juni who’s been more thoroughly brainwashed and thus gets more experience in the field because she’s likely more loyal.

Juli has been thoroughly trained in assassination. She is highly mobile and has amazing martial arts and acrobatic skills.


History

Street Fighter Zero 3

Juli, most likely along with her partner, Juni, was ordered to eliminate Cammy. When they finally found her, Cammy told them that Bison was just using them all as expendable tools. Cammy had realized her self-conscious, and managed to convince Juli and Juni not to kill her.

Juli and Juni didn’t believe her at first. They reported back to Bison, telling him that they terminated Cammy. Pleased with the completion of their mission, Bison then told Juli and Juni that they had done their purpose, and now they should die at his command!

Shocked, Juli and Juni immediately entered into defensive mode, and Bison was impressed that their will to survive overrode their brainwashing.

Dolls rebellion

Although Bison was winning the battle, Cammy arrived to help. Together, with the rest of the Dolls, they all turned against Bison. The twelve realised that to Bison, they were nothing but expendable dolls. In the ensuing battle, most dolls were killed, and worse, it was revealed that with Bison’s death, they would all die, too!

Cammy was shocked at what Bison told them all and declared that they all were not just dolls! Sacrificing herself by staying behind as the Shadaloo base was about to be destroyed, Cammy was able to save Juli and the rest of the Dolls by using the psycho drive to restore them. That was even though they were cut off from Bison’s psycho power.

Cammy also used the psycho drive to transport the rest of the Dolls out of the base. The last thing Juli heard before all went black was Cammy telling her and the other Dolls that only they can survive, but they -will- survive and live.

Where Is She Now

Upon Bison’s apparent death, Juli and the rest of the dolls completely lost all their memory. They were transported to who knows where via the psycho drive. Odds are that Juli woke up somewhere in the world not knowing where and who she was. Were the other dolls with her? Or were they all transported away to various parts of the world?

At any rate, somewhere, out there, most of them possibly even under Honda’s care, are twelve genetically enhanced psycho powered memory-less girls wandering around… Hopefully poor Juli at least found her partner…or maybe Thunder Hawk found her after she was transported out and she’s with him now, since she’s a Native American German person.


Description

Juli is teenage German girl around the age of 16. She has the body of a gymnast. Her hair is bound into a bun and she has chin length bangs.

She wears the typical Shadaloo Special Forces uniform skintight black body suit with stripes and a black McDonald’s type cap with matching forearm guards and boots. The uniform also has a funky yellow baby necktie.


Personality

None of the dolls have any real personality so to speak of. They are essentially robots and blindly follow orders and speak like robots – at least until Cammy convinces them otherwise. When Bison declares that they should all die they have enough self-preservation instinct to be able to defend themselves and actually fight back when Cammy shows up.


Quotes

“Target confirmed.”

“Exterminating subject…”
