Personal Info Edit
Style: Divine Orochi Power
Orochi is a divine being who calls itself "Gaia's Will" (地球意志, Chikyu Ishi). It was supposedly born from the earth itself, manifested through floating emotions and substances of nature. Orochi's main power is "nothingness", implying that the god has no distinct gender. Since ancient times, Orochi was nature's guardian and was granted with many of its powers. It gained followers to its cause and eventually formed a clan. The eight strongest warriors were known as the Hakkesshu. As mankind began to grow in numbers, however, the natural balance began to crumble.
1800 years ago, Orochi could no longer tolerate the destruction and wanted to completely wipe humanity from existence. It used the powers gained from nature purely as a tool for chaos. His clan and the human race waged war until the Kusanagi, Yata, and the Yasakani defeated him with three mystical treasures. The Hakkeshu and Orochi were defeated and sealed. Though kept in a suspended state, Orochi continues to feel that mankind pollutes the world.
Orochi's loyal servants continue to work to break its seal until Orochi is able to break free from it. In The King of Fighters '97, Orochi possesses Chris's body and, though weakened, wants to continue its previous desire to cleanse the world. The appearance it is most known form, that of a white-haired, tattooed man, is actually Chris' body reshaped by Orochi to appear older, and similar to the warriors it has seen during the duration of the tournament. He is once again defeated by the three treasures and sealed.
By The King of Fighters 2003, a group of servants of another deity created by Gaia broke the Orochi seal. They are known as MediaWiki:Badtitletext, and they plan to take Orochi's power for their master. Meanwhile, a mysterious young man called Ash Crimson is taking all the three sacred treasures (the Yata Mirror, the Yasakani Jewel, and the Kusanagi Sword) one by one. With the seal broken, Orochi is free to enter the mortal realm once again, and Orochi cannot be contained with the treasures missing.
