BIO:

Six years before the first tournament, Lei Fang was saved from a bunch of thugs by a martial artist, Jann Lee. Although she was very grateful for being saved, she felt that she could have handled the situation herself. After that incident, she mastered the art of Tai Chi Quan and sought to prove her strength to Jann Lee. Lei Fang joined the first Dead or Alive Tournament in order to fight Jann Lee, to prove her worth to him. During the tournament she faces him. However, she is defeated by him. This doesn't damper her spirits, however, and she goes on to train herself.

With fighting games being mostly a "male-dominated" hobby/sport/virtual entertainment... mostly nobody is complaining about another ass-kickin' Asian girl in a fighting game. That's just the way it is. 

Lei Fang might dress like an undercover Asian prostitute (most of the time), but she has a pretty cool Kung Fu / Tai Chi Quan fighting style. Her fighting style is fluid in some places, but some of her movements are definitely awkward. Her best moves are easily her "advanced" counter-holds, which not all DOA chars have. Lei Fang's counters are among the best animations in DOA.

On that note... Lei Fang's default fighting stance always looked weird to me... notably the way she swings her arms in the beginning. It's actually a bit sloppy for Tai Chi (and 100% not the combative kind). Lei Fang even seems weirdly off-balance during some of her moves (but that's due to Tecmo Koei's animation and weird physics for body movement). Other than that quirk (that has'nt been fixed in 7 sequels), Lei Fang was always a decent DOA character... and she's evolved pretty well over the years. In the past, I felt she could easily be outshined by others in the series, but she's come a pretty long way. Her new taunts & mannerisms in DOA5 were a nice touch.
