Dhalsim is one of the major protagonists of the video-game series Street Fighter. He is a yoga master competing as the main representative from India.
Street Fighter II
Dhalsim was first introduced in Street Fighter II as one of eight main playable characters. Dhalsim's skill set allowed him to attack from a distance even with normal attacks, beating him had to do with overcoming his move combos to get close enough to hit him directly. Dialog from Dhalsim had to do with him rejecting using one's skills for violence and him regretting needing to resort to it himself to address the other fighters. His goal is to win the prize money from the world tournament to feed his poverty stricken village.
Street Fighter III
In Street Fighter 3, Dhalsim's main goal is to strike out against the evil M. Bison. During his travels Dhalsim meets Bison's enforcers, Rose and Birdie, and uses telepathy to find out Bison's location. While reading her mnd, Dhalsim discovers that Cammy White had been brainwashed by Bison and uses hypnosis to make Cammy reassert control over her own mind - freeing her from Bison's control. Though in his play-through he confronts Bison and destroys the Shadaloo this is not considered cannon to the following games.
Super Street Fighter IV
As of Street Fighter IV, Dhalsim's village is flooded after S.I.N. builds a dam upstream. Dhalsim's son, Datta, was a pen-pals of Amy, Guile's daughter. Through Amy and thus Datta, Dhalsim learns that Guile went missing on a mission to investigate dam. Dhalsim sees a potentially serious situation in both his village's future and his former rival and current ally's safety. Due to the situation Dhalsim reluctantly decides to once again use his powers for combat. Dhalsim participates in the S.I.N.'s tournament S.I.N. to resolve both issues.
Dhalsim is quite stoic, serious, self-disciplined, humble, and also very stern when needed. Being a pacifist, he will never hurt a person more than necessary, or kill an adversary, even the most evil ones such as M. Bison. His pacifistic beliefs also allow him to be a greatly loving father and husband towards his family.
Being an extremely altruistic man, Dhalsim fights mostly for the poor and oppressed, as he constantly tries his best to raise money for his poverty-stricken people. Dhalsim is aware that if he uses his power to harm, he may become evil, and frequently questions his decisions to use his powers for fighting. Furthermore, all forms of yoga are meant to aid a personal journey towards enlightenment, and not to harm others. Therefore, Dhalsim is constantly concerned about his fighting style overwhelming his own principles of nonviolence.
In contrast with Ryu's youngster (but still serious and self-focused) type, Dhalsim has a more "mature" and less "enthusiastic" nature, as he regularly relies on his traditional yoga meditation rites to expand his spirituality, and keep his inner neutrality off any emotional involvement that may prejudice his discipline.
Dhalsim always remains calm and serene. When he fights, he is always in a constant state of meditation so he can focus on the opponent. He rarely speaks to his opponents outside of calling his attacks, and when he does, his words are riddles that leave the foe confused about his or her own being.
His intense yoga training has enabled Dhalsim to contort and extend his limbs into forms physically impossible for a normal human. He can project his arms and legs outward in order to deliver attacks that would be out of the range of normal limbs, and teleporting to maintain the distance. Likewise, he also has the ability to breathe fire in various ways.
