Fighting Style: Vale Tudo
Following his fight with Armor King, Marduk awoke in hospital to find strange injection marks across his body. Seeking answers, he tried to locate Armor King who was also recovering from their fight. Before reaching his destination, he was stopped by King, who insisted Marduk instead settles the score with Armor King once and for all in the ring.
Fighting Style: Professional Wrestling
His fight with Craig Marduk, the man that killed his brother, left them both seriously injured. Upon regaining consciousness, he found a letter beside his hospital bed from Marduk, demanding a rematch to finish what they had started.
Marduk vows that, if he loses, he would retire from the fighting scene. But, if Armor King lost, he would have his mask forcibly removed. Confident of his own triumph, Armor King accepted the challenge.
Fighting Style: Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Baji Quan
After retiring as the masked fighter Jaycee, Julia concentrated fully on expanding her reforestation efforts around the globe, far from the fighting scene. But, her project quickly needed money. Finding it difficult to secure backers, Julia was forced to return to the fight far sooner than she had wanted. Seeking one final fight, she made it her mission to beat Kazuya Mishima. Doing so, she theorised this would gain the global attention, and subsequent funding that her reforestation project needed.
