Pai is a leading star in Hong Kong action films. Her moods change as quickly as a cat's - she can erupt in passion in one minute, and turn icy cold in the next. Lau's only daughter, Pai was specially trained by her father in martial arts from a young age. In the original Virtua Fighter, however, while Lau obsessively strove on with his training, Pai's mother worked so hard to support the family that she died of overwork. Her death devastated Pai and she blamed it on Lau; she swore that one day she would beat him. Two years later, she was a success in the movie industry.

After failing to defeat her father several times, Pai eventually learns that Lau has become ill and seeks to find a successor to his school of martial arts. Pai's goal to avenge her mother shifts and she becomes determined to defeat her father in order to gain his acknowledgment as a worthy successor and his daughter.

Don't make "she's my cherry pie" references... I don't think a classy gal like Pai would appreciate that. Pai Chan's original appearance was undeniably somewhat inspired by fighting game icon, Chun-Li. Pai has that "serious in her martial training" personality  that most real-life ass-kicking babes would have... and overall she's pretty cool. While a bit generic in terms of looks and personality, Pai can hold her own with a beautifully fluid fighting style and fluid movements, which improved greatly from sequel to sequel.

Pai's outfit designs over the years have been well done... she's probably one of the best dressers from the Virtua Fighter series, by far. Pai started out as a pretty clearly "reserved girl" for the early part of the series... but she finally decided to "bring some sexy" in the later installments, which was actually nice to see. Last but not least, and perhaps most importantly, Pai is a dynamic and very fun 3D fighting game character to use.
