You cannot keep my fists in your sight, for they move with the fury of hell!
~ Gen

Gen (元, Gen?) is a character in the Street Fighter series of fighting games. He first appeared in the original Street Fighter game. Stated by the official Street Fighter website to be in his 70s by the time of Super Street Fighter IV, Gen is a legend in the Chinese underworld, however, he has been diagnosed with a fatal illness, believed to be leukemia, and is seeking to die as he has lived: fighting.

Biography

Gen is a former assassin and mentor to Chun-Li. He is also a kung-fu master versed in an assassination style he created based on Chinese martial arts. Reappearing in Street Fighter Alpha 2, it is revealed he is dying of leukemia and seeks one last good fight before he passes on to the next world. This brings him to Akuma's attention and the two fight, but Akuma stops the fight, noticing Gen's illness and leaving, due to his principle of never fighting anybody who isn't at the top of their game. An insulted Gen goes after him, seeking to finish the fight. In IV, it is revealed that he was there when Chun-Li's father was abducted and killed by Shadaloo; his illness kept him from saving his friend, much to his chagrin.

He appears in Akuma's story prologue in V, where their final battle is depicted. He is eventually defeated and killed by Akuma, receiving the epic fight to the death he had long awaited.

Abilities

One of Gen's more popular special moves (similar to moves by Chun-Li and E. Honda) is the Hyaku-Ren-Kou (百連勾, Hyakurenkō?, "Hundred Rapid Captures"), in which he strikes the opponent rapidly with hand stabs.

Gen is the only Street Fighter character that can change fighting styles in mid-fight. This gives him access to two different movesets, and knowing which is the best to use in the situation is the key to using him effectively. The Mantis Style focuses more on quick jabs and low-level, repeated damage, while his Crane style is slower but with more damaging, longer-ranged attacks. Overall, Gen excels at comboing moves together and executing 'air juggles' - moves that link together to keep the opponent off the ground.
