Goenitz is the leader
of the Four Heavenly Kings of Orochi.
Goentiz always knew his duty as a Heavenly King and was planning to revive his
lord Orochi. In order to achieve his goal, he became a religious missionary
who traveled to various places. When he was eighteen, he challenged Rugal
and easily defeated him
by taking out one of his eyes. As an experiment, Goenitz granted Rugal some of
Orochi's power to see if he could become a valid host for the entity. Goenitz
eventually assigns the task of observing the crimelord to two other Orochi
Meanwhile, he traveled
to a remote village where the last of the eight Orochi, Gaidel, was staying.
To his surprise, Guidel was living a peaceful life and had no interest in
reviving their lord Orochi. In response, Goenitz activated the Riot of the
Blood in Guidel's daughter, Leona.
That night, Leona lost control of herself, entering the Riot of Blood, and
slaughtered everyone in the village, including her parents. Pleased with the
results, Goenitz sealed away her memories and continued to look for ways of
speeding up his lord's revival. He noticed that the seal containing Orochi is
too strong for his lord, so he paid a visit to the Yata household. He murdered
the current head of the clan, Maki Kagura, to break the seal's power.
After the events of King
of Fighters '95, Goenitz decided to track down the Three Sacred Treasures
that previously defeated his lord. While Mature and Vice were keeping an eye
on Iori, Goenitz
decided to personally test Kyo's
strength. Although he expected a glorious fight from the 1995 champion, he
defeated the Kusanagi heir with ease. Later, he interrupts the KOF '96 tournament
to destroy all three heirs at once. However, Goenitz is defeated by Kyo with
the help of Iori and Chizuru. The humiliated
Goenitz commits suicide afterwards, making Kyo the champion of the tournament.
