Characters:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) Cinder:

Age: 31
Height: 6'2''
Weight: 195 lbs.


Story (Basic):
Cinder was a convicted criminal who agreed to participate 
in Ultratech's chemical weapons test in exchange for early 
parole. A failed experiment turned him into a being of living 
flame. He was now been offered freedom he can defeat 
Glacius in the Killer Instinct tournament.


Story (Extended):
Ben Ferris, a small-time criminal with counts of assault,
breaking and entering and arson on his record, is the 
latest convict to be bought out of jail for Ultratech's 
twisted uses. His fate is to be used as a human guinea-
pig in the company's chemical weapon developments, an 
unexpected side-effect leaving him consumed by fire but 
somehow, much to his own horror, still alive. He is kept 
confined in a top-security block until Ultratech decide to 
enter him into the tournament under the codename Cinder
to defeat Glacius fairly and in full public view, his freedom
providing the ultimate incentive. 


Ending:
Leaving as the champion of the tournament, a hostile police 
reception awaits him outside the gates of Ultratech. As no 
stranger to confinement from his former life of crime, Cinder
has no intention of being imprisoned again. Using his newly 
acquired power, he easily evades the capture attempt, leaving 
his potential captors in his wake. Picking a location suitable 
for his current condition, he ponders his next move.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2) Combo:

Age: 25
Height: 6'1''
Weight: 220 lbs.

Story (Extended):
Having fought his way from a seedy backstreet gym to the 
world heavyweight title through sheer raw power and agg-
ression, after 5 years at the top T. J. "Combo" Garrett is 
brought crashing down by his own overwhelming greed.
Having blown most of his cash on titanium arm implants 
to ensure that the title remained his, Combo is stripped of 
belt, wealth and public respect when the Ultratech surgeon 
who performed the operation sells his story to the media. 
Furious and humiliated, Combo returns to his old ghetto 
haunts and vows to defy the world at large in reaching the 
top once more. 


Ending:
With victory in the tournament, Combo has finally achieved 
his ambition to regain his lost fortune and popular status.

Height: too tall 
Weight: really heavy


Story (Basic):
Eyedol is Ultratech's trump card. Ultratech's scientists
snatched him out of Limbo to do battle with the finalist
in this year's Killer Instinct tournament. Little did they 
realize what kind of power they were releasing when they 
set Eyedol free from his magical prison...


Story (Extended):
Eyedol and his greatest rival, Gargos - known only in the 
modern world to the Monks of the Tiger as the great Spirit 
they serve - were the last surviving Warlords of ancient 
times, battling for ultimate control of the land. The heroes 
of the age joined together to banish them to Limbo, and for 
2000 years there they stayed: but now Ultratech's meddlings 
have resulted in a device that can scan the void for life, and 
despite their efforts to shut it down before anything nasty 
gets out, a weakened Eyedol manages to break through at 
the last minute, right into the company's scheming hands. 


Ending:
"Billy... Are you my long lost son Billy?..."
"Why would I be your son?... My name's Eyedol."

One of Ultratech's latest creations and possibly the most 
dangerous to date, Fulgore is the first in a planned series 
of cybersoldiers boasting state-of-the-art armouries, worked 
at feverishly over the last few years by a particularly erratic 
Ultratech genius and his team. Dark rumours abound as to 
where the prototype's human parts originated - the kind of 
rumours nobody dares voice. Before the Fulgore Mk.I model 
is even finished, the scientists are already working on an 
upgrade: and to prove the prototype's ultimate worth, it is 
entered into the tournament with orders to destroy all op-
position. 


Ending:
The combat test of the Fulgore series assault cyborg has 
been a success. Mass production can now take place...
After years of research, a weapon of awesome power is 
in the hands of Ultratech. The dawn of a robot controlled 
empire will soon begin. The first prototype model, Fulgore

left to view it are now slaves.

Story (Basic):
Glacius is an alien being from a distant planet. When 
his spaceship crash landed on earth, he was captured 
by Ultratech. Hoping to prove these alien beigns to be

Killer Instinct tournament.


Story (Extended):
Wandering the galaxy in search of new life, a curious 
Glacius skims too close to the Earth and, sucked in by its 
gravitational field, crashlands deep in the heart of a snow-
bound mountain range. Groggy but counting himself lucky 
to be alive, he surveys the damage and sets out in the hope
of finding the parts he needs. The history books of Glacius' 
race warn of the humans' unreasoning brutality, but surely 
they exaggerate? Unfortunately, the alien will soon have 
time to regret his trusting nature when Ultratech capture 
him for use in their own unique brand of 'scientific research'. 


Ending:
After escaping from the grasp of Ultratech, Glacius finally 
returns to the site of his crashed spaceship. With the ad-
vanced technology present at Ultratech, Glacius takes the

During meditation he is visited by the very Tiger spirit his 
Order serves, which grants him great powers and chooses 
him to battle the sinister evil of Ultratech. At first the power 
threatens to overwhelm Jago's sanity, but he soon masters 
it and becomes the finest warrior the Order has yet fathered. 
The ever-present uncertainty as to his origins,however, still 
troubles him.

Tiger spirit. By defeating the evil that existed at Ultratech,

named elite of a professional spy organisation working for 
thegreater good of society. Her past remains hidden, inclu-
ding some things of which even she is unaware: she won't 
find out for some time yet that Jago is actually her brother.

Story (Basic):
Riptor is a product of Ultratech's DNA Manipulation Project.
By splicing human and reptilian genes, they have created a
fighting creature with animal ferocity and human inteligence.


Story (Extended):
Another of Ultratech's miraculously realised concepts: a 
crossbreed of human and reptilian DNA, resulting in a crea-
ture that combines formidable intelligence with sheer brute 
strength. Nurtured from the egg by a dedicated Ultratech 
professor and her team, the beast nicknamed 'Riptor' by 
others has barely reached 4 years of age before it first 
demonstrates its full savage power in a human kill. Riptor 
is confused and often finds itself torn between human 
reasoning and predatory instincts, resorting to attack 
when it fails to understand the situation, as ever more 
people find out the hard way.

weapon have escalated beyond even their control. By 
toying with the laws of nature, Ultratech have finally

Story (Extended):
Since the day when a wolfbite left him afflicted with a part-
icularly virulent strain of lycanthropy, Count Von Sabrewulf 
has lived in exile in his remote mountain tower, shunned by 
society, struggling with insanity as his disease grows steadily 
worse. A handful of years back his worst nightmare was 
realised when he failed to revert to human form at all. Every 
rumour of a possible cure has been at best a hoax, so when 
a message arrives promising salvation should he enter and 
win the Ultratech contest, Sabrewulf is highly suspicious
but obliged to seize any chance that comes his way. 


Ending:
With victory, Sabrewulf obtains the cure he sought for so 
long from the hands of Ultratech. Cured at last of his curse,

known as Spinal has been torn from the peace of death by 
Ultratech's cell regeneration experiments. Trapped in the 
new world, he has no choice but to obey orders despite 
his reluctance, and to make things worse he begins to 
suffer tormenting flashbacks to the ancient life he can
never quite remember. After the awe and wonder he in-
spired when first unveiled to the public, this year Spinal 
finds himself in the shadow of Ultratech's latest creations 
(Fulgore, Riptor et al): and, filled with resentment, he sets 
out to prove his worth.
