Jaycee debuted as a mysterious masked
female luchador (or luchadora). An unnamed luchadora was set to join the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 tournament but she was injured in a car crash. The unnamed grieving woman plead with Julia
Chang to take her position in the tournament instead. While initially hesitant, Julia agrees to don the luchadora outfit and enter the tournament under the alias "Jaycee". The identity of the injured woman and her link to Julia is left unknown. In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Jaycee and King formed a team to face off against the duo of Craig
Marduk and Armor King.
In case you didn't notice, it should be noted that the name "Jaycee" sounds like Julia Chang's initials: "J.C." When wrestling in her luchadora attire, Jaycee wears Julia's original necklace and uses many of Julia's moves, but adds a plethora of wrestling holds and throws. In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, JayCee's mask can be
removed during customization - which will result in her name changing to
Julia Chang in the game.

one of the few fighter types that the Tekken series hasn't really
featured yet, the speedy Luchador! While Jaycee has many of Julia's original
moves, she has a ton of awesome Lucha Libre inspired attacks and some awesomely
hard-hitting throws. It's pretty hard to top the epicness of King's & Armor
King's throws (especially when it comes to animations), but Jaycee's animations
are just awesome.
In my opinion, Julia was one of the character designs in the later of the Tekken
series that needed "something"... and I'm glad Namco thought so to! This
alternate version of Julia makes her a more interesting character (and also
explains why Julia had a few "wrestling throws" to begin with. On a
side note, she also reminds me of one of my favorite Street
Fighter females... R.
Mika (and even has a jumping butt-attack of her own!) XD
