I. Bio.

Bruce Irvin, became a very known Muay Thai Kickboxer of Kazuya Mishima,
he has been known since the days of The Iron Fist Tournament 2 where he 
was within the alliance and corruption of the Mishima Corps.

Years back, Bruce was a respected cop for Interpol. Until Kazuya 
found him in a 'accidental' plane crash (it was done and set 
up by The Mishima). With lies, Kazuya allied with an amnesiactic 
Bruce and he became his main bodyguard. Lei Wulong was after the Mishima 
corruption but had to deal with someone he knew and respected. After seeing 
Bruce had amnesia and was corrupted, Lei try to explain that he was not the 
bad guy but to no avail. After a grueling figt, Bruce escape.
 
As Kazuya was defeated by his father Heihachi, Bruce confuse, 
decided to escape Mishima. Kazuya was not going to let that happen, 
as Bruce escape on a jet, it exploded instantly!
.....Somehow Bruce manage to escape. 

........Bruce was lost so he only did what he could.

Bruce traveled the globe working as a mercenary for various organizations.

One day, Bruce learned that Kazuya, who he thought to be dead, had 
fought in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. He also learned that 
the Mishima Zaibatsu, without Heihachi,was scheduled to hold 
the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5.

Bruce, who had survived countless conflicts on battlefields across 
the globe, sensed something sinister about the tournament but at the 
same time felt a rush of excitement. He had grown bored in recent times 
and it looked as though the Mishima Zaibatsu was about to provide 
some entertainment.
