and young competitor
at 18, Hitomi is the daughter of a Japanese mother and a German karate
master. She has been practicing karate under her father's tutelage since
she was just a child, and has always wanted to fight in DOA to test
her formidable skills in the real world. Hitomi's father has finally decided
to allow her to participate in DOA. 'There must be many powerful opponents
in this world', Hitomi tells herself, and begins practicing her craft with
a new degree of enthusiasm.
