    -- 2. Introduction --
    Welcome to the Tekken 5 Character Profile FAQ! 
    This FAQ consists of profiles of all the Tekken 5 
    characters. I mostly decided to do this because 
    I always see people on the message board asking 
    about a particular characters story or history. 
    This FAQ will be useful for those of you who 
    want to know a bit about the games various 
    characters. You learn some basic info such as age, 
    nationality, and fighting style etc. You will also 
    learn about why each particular character has entered 
    the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 and what they 
    hope to accomplish by winning it. All of this 
    information was used from the Tekken 5 videogame 
    except for the characters ages and some of their 
    fighting styles. The information about the ages 
    and styles I got from www.tekkenzaibatsu.com. 
    So all credit for that goes to them. Well I 
    hope you find this FAQ useful and entertaining.
