|“||Yes! Yeah, I did it!||„|
|~ Josie Rizal|
Josie Rizal is a heroine in Tekken 7.
Josie Rizal tried her best to support her family by balancing two jobs; one as a model, and one as a professional kickboxer. One day, while she was out running on her usual training course along the mountain roads, she was suddenly confronted by an enormous, hairy creature!
Josie screamed, and then fled half in tears, but the creature remained hot on her heels. Realizing she had little chance of escape, Josie abruptly came to a halt, then turned trembling, to face her feral foe...
Ending Description: Josie finally defeats Kuma as she cries in relief. To her surprise, Kuma barely wakes up as he only returns her earring back which Josie noticed her earring was missing during their fight. Josie thanked the bear for retrieving it but Kuma then faints and Josie tries to wake him up.
In Kuma's ending she was finally awakened after being defeated by Kuma which she screams in terror. She thinks he's going to eat her but Kuma replies that he's not gonna eat her by roaring which causes Josie to faint. Kuma tries to wake her up and realized that she had failed to be enlisted into the Tekken Force despite her fighting skills.
Josie has been described to be bright, cheerful and quite energetic, but she has become more prone to crying because of something that happened in the past. It later reveals in her backstory that she was a big crybaby at the young age and is unable to ease it. During her training course and confrontation against Kuma, Josie was revealed to be afraid of bears and makes her flee in tears when it was encountered as well as being interrogated by it which caused her to faint.
