In the first Killer Instinct game, Orchid is a secret agent sent to investigate the mysterious disappearances surrounding the Killer Instinct tournament. While investigating, she finds out the truth that Jago, a highly skilled ninja, is her half-brother. She also learns of Ultratech’s nefarious plans and is ready to bring down the company.
She is able to succeed, and by the time she comes back in the third installment of the game, Ultratech is supposedly no more. However, she soon finds out that the sinister company is alive, well, and gunning to destroy her. Ultratech succeeds in getting Orchid disavowed and on the run, but rather than breaking under the pressure, Orchid is more determined than ever to do something about Ultratech. Hence, she forms the paramilitary team, Disavowed. Together with her brother, Jago, she is able to create a formidable network of spies and operatives who are laser-focused on taking Ultratech.
Orchid is a focused character who has a steely mentality that is almost impossible to break. She is a loving sister who is protective of her brother Jago and the two unite to fight against Ultratech.
Orchid is a proper rushdown character. With her fast walk speed and nimble movement, she is one of the fastest characters in the game. She also has the potential for quite a bit of damage as she is difficult to defend against. On top of that, she has great air-to-air options, with her air throw being one of the most viable in the game. While she is a terrible zoner and might struggle against an opponent with strong defense, she generally has more pros than cons.
Orchid is a confident woman, and her signature green outfit has been a staple of the Killer Instinct games over the years. She is dark-skinned with a pair of skimpy pants that enable better movement for her. She also has night vision goggles stuck to her head and wears high-heeled combat boots.
