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.
