What follows is a brief history of the Eternal Champion.

The Eternal Champion came to life as the result of the deaths of the Martial 
Arts Great Masters, these Masters each were the fathers and creators of many 
fighting styles that make up the Martial Arts. Each master reached reached 
such perfectionin his art during his lifetime that when death came, their 
spirits weren't lost, their life energy and souls were transferred into the 
Eternal Champion. The job of the Eternal Champion is to ensure that the 
balance between good and evil is maintianed, by the passing on of the 
knowledge that each Master perfected.

This game begins far in the future. Man has created a world that runs wihout 
them. Technology has become so adnanced that the human spirit is near 
obsolete, The world has been going through consistent turbulence and upheavel 
since the late twentieth century. He must instead use his remaining energy to 
affect the past.

To the Eternal Champion, time is a strem, He can do nothing to change the 
existing flow, in order to make change he must add an element which never 
existed, just as a well placed rock would change the flow of a running river. 
The Eternal Champion uses his power to reach back into the beginning of time. 
He then moves forward looking for great fighters that weren't allowed to 
complete their destiny. The Eternal Champion finds nine great fighters, each 
of the fighters comes from various places in time, this means that they each 
bring their own brand of fighting style and approach from their historical 
time zone. In the last moment before each of the fighters untimely death, the 
Eternal Champion tranported them to his complex.

Now each of the fighters will be given a chance to fulfil their destiny. The 
Eternal Champion has allowed the fighters to use his complex to learn and 
retrain their fighting skills. This training is in preperation for the Day of 
Determination. On this day all the fighters will fight each other for the 
chance to challenge the Eternal Champion. If the final fighter can use his 
native and learned fighting skills to win he will be granted the collective 
knowledge of the Masters that from the Eternal Champion. Now armed with this 
knowledge the fighter will be returned to their timezone saved from death. The 
other fighters who failed will be sent back to their deaths so as not to 
disturb the flow of time. The winning fighter is now given a chance to live 
with their special knowledge They will be tasked with the changing of mans 
future. Each of the fighter's cinema sequences will not only show the fighter 
escaping their untimely death but will alsoinclude a unigue outcome should 
they beat the Eternal Champion. These outcomes will explain how each of the 
characters use their new life and abilities to save the future of man.

Game Screen Indicators:

Life Bar: At the top of the screen is a red bar. It is self-explantory, once 
your red bar is empty then your fighter will be defeated and vice versa for 
your opponent. You cannot replenish your health bar at any time, unless you 
use the Life Extender in the Battle Room. You cannot use that in the contest.

Inner Strength Orb: This is a unique feature in EC which allows you to pull 
off your stronger attacks. When the orb is full you can pull off a special 
attack but it will drain the orb.  When the orb is at a low power then the 
moves you'll be able to pull off will be quite limited.  To recharge the orb, 
you must fight back without using specials until it regenerates fully.  You 
can turn this feature off at the options screen if you wish but it makes the 
game a lot more fun if you leave it on.

(i) Blade

Bounty Hunter
2030 AD 
Stage: Syrian Oil refinary

Style of Martial art: Kenpo

Kenpo teaches its desiples how to manuever so that opponents unwittingly 
place themsleves in vunerable
positions. It combines linlear and circular moves, using intermittent power 
as needed. Like water, it flows through major and minor moves with fluid 
continuity. It is flexible in though as well as action.

Biography:
Blade was one of the best cops that ever lived in the future.  Born inSyria, 
raised in Africa, Blade was dedicated to the extreme, working someof the 
meanest parts of New Chicago.He had, however, one small problem: his temper.  
After almost being killedseveral times by a suspect during a case, Blade 
caught up to him.   Thesuspect again tried to kill Blade, who was able to 
sidestep the laser shot
and grab the suspect. Being only human, Blade was out of patience.  He 
proceeded to beat the suspect to near death.  The suspect survived, and sued 
the police.  The police fired Blade to hush the scandal, and he ended up 
moving back to Syria to become a Bounty Hunter, which allowed him better use 
of his quick temper. His final case dealt with a rogue scientist who had 
escaped a government bio-weapons lab.  The scientist was threatening to smash 
open a vial containing a virus that would kill 95% of all human life if the 
government didn't stop all bio-research. The Syrian government hired Blade to 
safely retrieve the vial.  Blade agreed on one condition: they 
wouldn'tinterfere. They agreed. He cornered the scientist in an alley and 
radioed that the scientist agreed to peacefully give up the vial.  The 
government had followed Blade, and took this moment to make their move.  When 
shots from laser rifles filled the alley the last image that Blade saw before 
he died was the smashed and
open vial of the virus.

Goal: If Blade was to return his plan would be to get to the vial before it 
broke, and to save the life of the rogue scientist.  This would keep the 
virus from being exposed and killing most of humanity with its destructive 
force.

or "Rightous Harmony Fists" and get them to turn their ways to pacifism 
before the major foreign powers brought all their military forces to bear.

East would further weaken her own government's stability.  Before Jetta was

and China, she fell victim to an act of sabotage by a radical from the Yihe 
Quang.  Jetta's safety net and tension

Style of Martial art: Praying Mantis Kung Fu

This southern style of Kung Fu was founded in the 17th century by Wang Lang. 
The system relies heavily on fierce grasping movements, clawing attacks, 
kicks and punches for both offense and defense. Legend has it that Wang Lang 
once captured a praying mantis. took it home and studied it. He then combined 
the movements of the mantis with monkey style kung fu to form his new system.

Biography:
Born in an era of crime bosses and racketeering, Larcen grew respecting and 
idolizing the many powerful crime bosses who ruled the streets.  As a youth, 
he went to work for Mr.Taglalini, one of the most powerful crime bosses. 
Under his wing, Larcen grew up to be one of the world's best cat burglars. He 
did many illegal jobs for Mr.Taglalini, including the planting of illegal 
evidence in other crime boss hideouts.  There was one thing that Larcen 
wouldn't do, and that was kill.  Instead, he used martial arts to stop and 
drop his attackers.

One day, Mr.Taglalini asked Larcen to plant a package on a supposed crime 
boss who was recovering in the hospital.  When he entered the room that 
supposedly contained the boss, he instead found the now recovering chief of 
police, who had been hurt in a prior assassination attempt.  It seemed that 
the mob wanted the chief dead because he was incorruptable, and was about to 
declare war on the mob. Larcen suddenly realized that he had been set up.  
The package he carried probably contained a bomb.  At this moment, Larcen 
decided that he had chosen the wrong side.  He wouldn't kill.  Larcen 
attempted to throw the bomb out of the window, but it was too late. The bomb 
explosion not only killed both Larcen and the chief, but also most of the 
hospital, including several youngsters in the children's wing.


Goal:
If Larcen gains a second chance he will use it to shut down Mr.Taglalini's 
syndicate.  Beyond that, he would like to use his second chance to find a way

Stage: Belgrave Square labortories.

Style of martial art: Jeet Kune do

This fighting style was conceived by the late martial artist Bruce Lee in 
1967. It's name literally means "The Wway of the intercepting fist". Jeet Ken 
do, unlike other martial arts, does not use a specific set of rules or 
techniques to establish a distinct method. Instead it utilizes all ways and 
measn to serve its end, therfore making it "free". As a martial arts form it 
possesses everything, while in itself it possesses nothing.

Biography:

Mitchell worked for the CIA on loan from Interpol.  Born in London, Mitchell 
was one of the best bio-chemical scientists working in the intelligence 
community.  The CIA needed Mitchell to work on a bio-chemical weapon to end 
the Vietnam War.  Mitchell created a virus that would weaken its victims 
until they hung near death, waiting for the antidote. The virus was to be 
introduced into the water supply of Vietnam, but Mitchell wouldn't stand for 
that much human destruction.  He stole back his formula and fled back to 
London to hide. Unfortunately, Mitchell was cornered at the airport by both 
interpol and CIA agents.  During the escape, Mitchell fell from a nine-story 
building into a chemical storage used by the airport.  The force of the 
impact broke the seal of the virus container and released the virus into the 
chemical vat. This mixture creasted an unexpected result.  Mitchell was 
transformed by the mixture into a living vampire.  Using his newfound cunning 
and strength, Mitchell escaped and fled to London where he spent the next 133 
years vainly searching for a cure for his disease.  No longer identifying 
with his past, Mitchell came to be known as Midknight.

The cure had become more important since the goverment used the virus during 
the Vietnam War by using the contents of the airport chemical vat. Many of 
the third-world countries were now over-run with living vampires. Midknight 
was also running out of time because his body, with the exception of his neck 
and face, was rotting away.  This rotting was due to the fact that Midknight 
wouldn't kill another person to renew his life energy. Midknight was about to 
solve the last hitch in the antidote when a government agent killed him by 
firing a firing a magnesium stake through his heart.

that the sport was no longer about human competition, but a battle between 
cyborgs, robotically enhanced human beings.  Since the cyborgs could take and 
deliver more damage, the crowds began to stop attending the human fights for 
the excitement provided by these new robotic combatants. Given these changes, 
R.A.X. had no choice but to get cybernetic implants and join the crooked game 
which was run by a deceitful fight promoter.
R.A.X. didn't trust this promoter, but needed his financial support to afford 
the cybernetic implant operation. After the operation, R.A.X. rose through 
the ranks and won the right to take on the champion.  He was killed as a 
result of the corrupt fight promoter trading R.A.X.'s life for a sure bet on 
the championship fight. The promoter used an advanced electronic virus

(vii) Slash

Slash 
Prehistoric hunter- 50,000 B.C

Style of martial art used: Pain


This fighting style uses any move or attack  that will cause pain or inflict 
damage. This includes eye-poking, neck throttling, nostril pulling and hair 
yanking. The most common weapon is a large wooden club, which early hunters 
could wield very effetively. One technique involves the spinal crush, in which 
the attacker jumps onto a foe and smashes the victim's head, compressing the 
spinal column. Another technique uses the "push off" lever for a high two-
footed attack.

Biography:


Slash was always advanced for a pre-man creature.  He was the greatest
hunter and the greatest fighter of his generation.  These skills didn't
just come from his great strength, but also from the emergence of an early
intelligence.  Slash used this intelligence in his fighting, which meant he
could out-think most of his opponents.
His intelligence also got him into a lot of trouble.  The cave elders
resented Slash for his intelligence, and rejected his every idea, including
an agricultural plan which would have freed the clan from its enslavement
to a life of drudgery as hunter-gatherers.  The elders turned down this
idea at once , as they saw no value in having free time and enjoyed the
violence of the hunt.
One day, when Slash publicly spoke against the the elders in a clan meeting,
he was stoned to death by the clan when the elders proclaimed him to be an
evil force.


Goal:

If Slash was returned back to his life he would take charge and become the
new leader of the clan.  Only through this direct leadership can Slash
teach his people new and better ways of living.

(viii) Trident

Trident
Gladiator-110 B.C

Style of martial arts used: Capoeria

This Brazilian fighting style was founded over three centuries ago by African 
slaves. It is believed to have been originated by blacks in Angola, who 
performed the movementd as a religous dance. In the 16th century, this "dance" 
was adpated into a fighting art as a defences against the brutal slave traders.
Capoeria is beautiful to watch because of its graceful cartwheels, handstands, 
handsprings, sweeps and flips. This grace combined with strength makes thus 
art lethal. Practitioners of this art are adept and evading attacks and 
countering with hands and feet. The foot motions involve a great deal of leg 
sweeps, leg blocks and kicks while in a handstand.

Biography:

Trident is so named becaise of the trident which replaced the hand he lost
in a duel with a shark.
The people of Atlantis during this time lived above the water.  They were
competing with the Romans to see who would control the Earth's surface, with
the loser being plunged into the watery depths.
The Atlanteans spent their time in the pursuit of science.  They realized
early on that a major part of the land was going to sink into the ocean.
To handle this, they built great environments that were enclosed in bubbles
so that they could survive the ocean's depths.
They then offered a fair settlement to the Romans. Half of each each
culture would stay on land, and the other half would go to sea. The Romans
would not agree, and would only settle the issue through battle.  So the
Atlanteans had no choice but to create a warrior that could stand up
against the warlike Romans.  Trident was their champion.
The Romans rigged the fight and crushed Trident under a large stone pillar.
With their loss, the Atlanteans were forced unnecessarily undersea, and
their culture was lost forever.


Goal:

A victory for Trident would allow him and the people of Atlantis to share
the land with the Romans.  Trident would also like to explore his role in
Man's future as Trident was a genetic creation and feels alone in his
existence.

ix) Xavier

Xavier Pendragon
Warlock/alchemist-1692 A.D.

Style of Martial art used: Hapkido cane fighting

Hapkido is a Korean martial art founded by Yong Shul Choi. Its style is a 
selective combination of several martial arts systems: power from Karate, 
leverage from Judo and Ki (spirit) from Akido.

Hapkido is distingushed by three essential techniques: passitivity when 
opposing force, circular movements for countering and attacking, and absoloute 
penetration of the oppoenents defences. For instance, if the force is strong, 
it must be met with a soft recpetion; if the force is weak, it must be met 
with a strong reception. This union of techniques establishes a fluid and 
perpetual rhythm as well as constant mobility. Almost all hits and defensive 
actions are performed with the cane, which is used in place of arms and legs.

Biography:

Xavier always made bad career choices, so it was no surprise that his last
job ended in failure.  After nailing still-smoking horseshoes onto the
mayor's prized workhorse, Xavier found himself with a shack full of
smithy tools and no job.
Stirred by a love for science, Xavier decided to try his hand at the
age-old quest for the formula which would turn lead into gold.  Instead,
he found a way to create an unlimited source of cheap, clean-burning energy
that would put Salem on the map forever in addition, Xavier found his
alchemy had changed him, giving him strange new powers.
Before he could begin to use this power and document it for the good of
future generations, Xavier found himself bound and gagged as the people of
Salem carted him off to the town square.  There they burned him at the
stake for the false charge of being a warlock.
While some of Xavier's powers could be mistaken for witchcraft, they are
all based on real science.


Goal:

Xavier's return back to his life would allow him to finish his studies of
the unlimited power  source that he found.  He would like to find a way to
use it without creating any great danger of giving another tool to evil.
He would also like to put a stop to the ignorance that led to many witch
hunts across the expanse of history.
