Undefeated for four years in the professional circuit, Craig Marduk was once a respected and feared Vale Tudo fighter. However, Craig is expelled from the professional ranks after being linked to a minor scandal. Bitter against his peers and society, Craig's wrath consumed his soul. One day, Craig started a bar brawl in Arizona and killed an opponent during the fight. Convicted for second-degree manslaughter, Craig was sentenced to 10 years in the state penitentiary. Two years later, Craig was mysteriously released from prison. Some anonymous "benefactor" had apparently paid off numerous judiciaries to arrange for Craig's release. An envelope is delivered to Craig shortly after his release. Craig opens the envelope to find a plane ticket and an article about The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.

Craig Marduk fought a grueling battle with the wrestler King in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, victory and defeat eluded both fighters, and in defeat, they found friendship. While returning to the waiting room, Craig was attacked. Catching only a glimpse of the attackers back as he fled, Craig could have sworn he looked exactly like the man he was convicted of killing, Armor King. Determined to learn the assailant's true identity, Craig set out with his sworn friend, King, to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.

Until the arrival of Marduk, the fighting game genre lacked a true Vale Tudo/MMA fighter. Marduk is a "No BS" fighter... who looks tough... and acts like a jerk... and that's a good thing for fighting games. In certain ways, a character like Marduk puts other FG characters to shame (ones who don't have enough follow-through with their attacks / actually look like they're fighting at all / doing stupid magical attacks, for example). Marduk does "fighting" justice with his true-to-life grappling techniques and hard-hitting punches, elbows, knees, and kicks. Marduk is a well-rounded dude. Did I mention he looks like a tough badass? He has sheer power and brutality to back it up, too. Personality-wise, there's not much on his mind besides beating your face in... and talking about it. He's got some naturally comic aspects to his personality as well. What more could you want out of a "big guy" design? >:)

As a TEKKEN player, Marduk has always been that character that I love to "hate". You naturally feel like an underdog fighting against him, and he's definitely fun to fight with smaller / faster characters. Don't let his size intimidate you too much! P.S. Learn to throw-break that tackle! ;) Ground fighting in general is a bit overrated, thanks to that "sport" known as UFC, but the way Marduk uses it is actually more effective. Real talk. There are no rules on the street bitch! Also, Marduk's TEKKEN 7 redesign is awesome.
