Characters of Color – Raven

Just so you guys know, I’m not the most faithful Tekken fan (more of a Virtua Fighter man myself) but I do love the characterization that their characters have. One example of this is today’s Character of Color, Raven. Debuting in Tekken 5, Raven is a no-nonsense, cold-blooded, possibly Canadian(?) covert operative. A practitioner  of ninjitsu, Raven mission was to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu and G-Corporation and discovered Heihachi Mishima was killed. Raven entered the King of Iron Fist tournament to investigate this and stumbled onto secrets that forced him to enter the sixth tournament.

Raven is just awesome, he looks like Wesley Snipes from the Blade film but with a little bit of ninja thrown in. To me, his appearance in Street Fighter X Tekken made his character and moveset better. His conversion to Street Fighter fighting mechanics was done so well, that I can actually see him as a Street Fighter character full time. Oh well, I guess I can settle from him to be still in Tekken. as long as they keep making him awesome at least.
