Vanessa Lewis


Vanessa is a security guard of unknown origin, using Vale Tudo as her fighting style. She entered the tournament as Sarah's bodyguard after hearing of J6's plans to re-capture her. When she was still a child, Vanessa's parents were killed. She was taken by J6 shortly afterwards, and trained to be an instrument of combat. A man named Lewis, a member of the special forces, infiltrated J6 and rescued Vanessa. Vanessa grew close to Lewis. However, their time together was brief, as a member of J6's special forces murdered Lewis. Years later, she has joined an organization to protect important individuals. One day, she hears of J6's intention to capture Sarah in the 4th tournament. Vanessa decides to join the 4th tournament not only as Sarah's bodyguard, but to find Lewis's murderer as well.

Wow, I didn't know Storm quit the X-Men, took up Vale Tudo and became a soldier. lol. So what the hell happened to her weather powers anyway? :(  Vale Tudo is a cool martial art, but Vanessa's incarnation of it is rather basic and not very exciting if you ask me. Her moveset pretty much bored me in VF4 & VF4: Evo, but it did significantly improve in VF5 and after (along with some animations, also). 

I do wonder why they made her skin appear noticeably "lighter" in Virtua Fighter 5... perhaps to make her look less like Storm? lol. In any case, I don't think her silver hair suits her and her personality is very dry... even for VF. She adds "something" to the series, but many 3D fighting game characters easily outshine her (including some in VF series).
