MARICRUZ “MARI” MENDEZ
“Life hits hard. Hit back harder.”
FIGHTING STYLE: Kickboxing
Owner and proprietor of Champion Video. Though her passion is in kickboxing, Mari clings to this store as a reminder. Since the incident, she’s been stuck here. Unable to press play on her life. It’s a hard business, renting old VHS’s in the dawn of DVDs, not to mention the new Flockbuster down the street. However, her conviction knows no bounds in keeping this memory alive. Whether it be the wall of Godzilla tapes, or the weird cat who fell into her life, Mari doesn’t quit.
FIGHTING STYLE: Run!
This is one strange cat. It watches tv static for fun, flips through books, and sees gorilla reflections in boiling water. There’s something not quite “normal” about Mios. Even his meow is weird.
“Go down swingin’!”
FIGHTING STYLE: Brawler
An enigmatic muscle-bound fish monster. He’s clearly dead set on completing a job. His dedication to an unnamed Angel is admirable. Stoic and rough around the edges, Hydrus makes for a lousy traveling companion. Ready and willing to butt heads with anyone.
FIGHTING STYLE: Academic
An adorable intellectual ever-seeking knowledge. Boundlessly curious, which is usually his downfall. Sticking his inquisitive beak where it doesn’t belong. Techu means well. However, he’s unable to read a room as well as he can read a book.
“Deliver Phantasos at once!”
FIGHTING STYLE: Drunken Boxing
A deadly force of nature who’s pursuit of Mari knows no bounds. Seemingly, even haunting her in dreams! No where is safe from Ogun. A murderous Phantasm, half gorilla and half steel.
