Heihachi Mishima's adopted son, Lee
Chaolan was originally entitled to the Mishima Zaibatsu just as much as Kazuya.
Kazuya's adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing
fitting of the Mishima clan.
Before the events of the original Tekken, Heihachi sent Lee
to America to take care of the Mishima Zaibatsu's operations there, and to
continue his business education. After
being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu later on, Lee founded Violet Systems, a
tech company specializing in development on humanoid robotics, and was quite
While Heihachi trained Kazuya in the art of
Mishima Style Fighting Karate, Lee studied with Paul
Phoenix and Marshall Law in
America. This is why Lee originally shared several of Paul's and Law's
is a bit narcissistic and always tries to act in an
elegant manner. He's polite but very theatrical.
After he betrayed Heihachi
and sided with Kazuya at The King of Iron Fist
Tournament 2, Lee was expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu. For quite sometime,
thoughts of revenge consumed Lee. Eventually, he realized that it was pointless
to kill an old man who probably had only a few years left in his life at
best. With that realization, Lee distanced himself from fighting and moved
to a mansion in the Bahamas to lead a solitary life. One day, he discovered
a huge sell-off of G Corporation's stock online. Lee's intuition told him
that something happened within the company. His intuition was correct.
He hacked into their classified computer network and accessed their internal
Lee learned that the Mishima Zaibatsu attacked
G Corporation and caused significant damage to their research facilities.
He also came across information that a new life form under development
by the Mishima Zaibatsu would be completed by next year. In order to complete
the life form, however, it appeared that they were missing a critical component...
Oddly enough, an announcement was made for The King of Iron Fist Tournament
4 around the same time. Lee's fading passion for fighting was rekindled
- along with his resentment towards the Mishima clan. In order to prevent
the Mishima Zaibatsu from discovering his true identity, Lee signed up
for the Tournament online under a false name. As an additional measure
to mask his identity, he dyed his gleaming silver hair purple.
Lee took part in the
King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to take revenge on Kazuya Mishima.
However, the one who had opened the tournament was not Kazuya, but Jinpachi
Mishima, and Chaolan, after learning this fact, lost interest in the tournament
and returned to his home in the Bahamas. Soon afterwards, the
MFG, led by Jin Kazama brought the world to
chaos, and around the same time G Corporation became a major opposition.
Surprised by G Corporation's sudden military action, Chaolan, a major shareholder,
conducted a private investigation with the utmost secrecy and discovered
that it was Kazuya who was the real power behind G Corporation actions. After obtaining information
that Kazuya himself would take part in this tournament, Chaolan, using
a shareholder's preferential treatment ticket, enters the tournament in
order to get close to Kazuya.
When the world became embroiled in conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu (headed
by Heihachi Mishima), and the G Corporation (secretly controlled by Kazuya
Mishima), Lee had nothing but extreme hatred for both Heihachi and Kazuya. One
method he choose to exact his revenge on the father and son was to covertly
support Lars Alexandersson, who had
turned on the Mishima Zaibatsu, but this was only the beginning of what he had
in store for the Mishimas.

Since the very
first game, Lee Chaolan was always
one of the "most stylish" characters of Tekken. Both his look and
fighting style has certainly come a long way, but he's still very much the same
Lee that original Tekken players know and love. If you remember correctly,
out as just a "clone" of Law as far as fighting style goes, but he acquired more and more of his own moves &
stances with every sequel. By the time of Tekken 4, Lee's fighting style became entirely his
own, and was further distinguished in later sequels.
Lee is primarily known for his flashy/fast kicks, and his cocky yet funny personality. His persona has become more vibrant over the years as well, and his
appearance in various Tekken ending movies are unforgettably hilarious. "Ohhh
Lee still brings tons of charisma to the Tekken family, and a Tekken game
really wouldn't be complete without him. On a side note, Lee also has some of
the best and most memorable martial arts "yells" of all time... Bwwooyiaaa!!!
