Claudio Serafino

Claudio Serafino is an exorcist and is integral to TEKKEN 7's storyline, as he 'holds the key' to defeating the Devil Gene. He is determined to investigate the Mishima Ziabatsu's actions.

Claudio is the first Italian in the TEKKEN series and shows off stylish moves, flamboyant mannerisms, and magical powers which seem inspired from the likes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Claudio could also be compared to a "Quincy" (Japanese for "Monk of Destruction") from Bleach, especially due to his Rage Art. Fans have also pointed out Claudio's resemblance to Maxi from Soul Calibur, along with the fact that one of his kicks looks like Rugal's "Genocide Cutter" and that fighting stance resembles Goenitz's from KOF.

While I mainly love TEKKEN for its martial arts-inspired characters (starting back in 1995)... at this point, after 20 years of enjoying the series, I'm totally open-minded to new types of characters in the series. Since the very first installment, there have always been "fantasy" type characters that are naturally less-realistic but perhaps more imaginative. Characters like Yoshimitsu, Jack or Alisa definitely offer something unique to the series that a traditional martial artist does not. 

After seeing more and more of Claudio in action, I'm convinced that he will be an interesting character. He's got some very unique moves for TEKKEN, and I'm looking forward to trying him out. Also, I'm part Italian myself... so I'm happy to finally see an Italian character represented in TEKKEN. He dresses stylishly, like a real Italian should. :)
