    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.

    Story (Basic):
    T.J. Combo was once the undisputed heavyweight champion 
    of the world for five years straight. He was stripped of his title 
    for his brutal metods of punishing opponents. He now fights 
    to regain his fame and fortune.
    
    
    Story (Extended):

    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.
    Once a nobody from the ghetto, Combo celebrates his win 
    and new found wealth by parading through those same 
    streets. With money and fame at his side, Combo believes 
    he can achieve anything.

    3) Eyedol:
    
    *In order to play Eyedol, select Cinder at the character
    select screen. Once the VS screen shows, hold Right and
    press LP, LK, HP, MK, MP, HK. If you do it right, you will 
    hear a voice saying: "Eyedol".
    
    
    Age: that would be telling
    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."
    "My son was lost in a car crash... I give him those bracelets 
    for his birthday....."
    "Somehow.......... we don't think so."
    <WHAP!>
    "aaaahhhhhhhhhhhh..."

    4) Fulgore:
    
    Age: 1
    Height: 6'5''
    Weight: 560 lbs.
    
    
    Story (Basic):
    A prototype cybernetic soldier developed by Ultratech, 
    Fulgore was entered into the Killer Instinct tournament as 
    a final test of its combat capabilities. Once its abilities are 
    proven, mass production will begin.
    
    
    Story (Extended):
    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 
    1, is deactivated and placed in a museum. The only humans 
    left to view it are now slaves.

    5) Glacius:
    
    Age: Unknown
    Height: 6'3'' (variable)
    Weight: 300 lbs. (variable)
    
    
    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 
    inferior, Ultratech forces him to fight for his life in the 
    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
    materials he needs and repairs his damaged ship. With 
    memories of the evil he faced there fading slowly, Glacius
    begins the long and arduous trip back to his homeworld.

    Story (Extended):
    Found abandoned as a baby at a Himalayan monastery 
    and taken in by the Monks of the Tiger, Jago showed great 
    promise from the start and, under the tutelage of the ancient

    During meditation he is visited by the very Tiger spirit his

    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.

    Story (Extended):
    For many years, Black Orchid has been amongst the code-
    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. 
    Realising that clear evidence of Ultratech's crimes and dark 
    ambition is proving impossible to come by, she eventually 
    decides that the only way into the company is also the most 
    dangerous - straight through the open front door. Once her 
    superiors are persuaded of the necessity, she goes ahead 
    and enters the tournament.

    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. 
    
    
    Ending:
    Ultratech's plans at creating a genetically engineered 
    weapon have escalated beyond even their control. By 
    toying with the laws of nature, Ultratech have finally

    enters the Killer Instinct tournament on the promise of
    a cure if he is victorious.
    
    
    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, 
    Count Von Sabrewulf can return to leading a normal exis-
    tence.

    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.

    truction, Spinal decides on a career break...Although nom-

    failed to return in either triumph or defeat. After much 
    agonising over the matter, and to great protest from his 
    tribesfolk, Thunder decides that he must suspect the 
    worst concerning Eagle's fate, and pacifies his people
    by nominating himself as avenger. The Chief has no 
    dreams of glory, taking up Ultratech's challenge with 
    nothing but vengeance and a primal justice in mind.
