More about Lee:
Lee is the adopted son of Heihachi Mishima. However, Heihachi does not love or feel any affection for him. The primary reason Lee was adopted is to act as a direct competitor to Kazuya Mishima to help develop his potential.
Kazuya would eventually destroy Lee mentally and physically, leading him to isolate himself from others. While recovering from his trauma, he came to know Wang Jinrei, who offered him his teachings in exchange for a favor. Lee accepted and began training for the next King of Iron Fist Tournament to kill Kazuya once and for all.
In the tournament, Lee would face his adoptive father and strike a deal to help take down Kazuya, but Heihachi would betray him. Why Lee mauled over his options, he became enraged and consumed by revenge. Thanks to a massive sale of G-Corporation stocks, Lee was able to piece together that Mishima had attacked them and that the new lifeform the Mishima Zaibatsu was developing would soon be ready. With this information, he joined the King of Iron Fist tournament under a secret identity, Violet.
Since then, Lee has built up his own company Violet Systems and continues to be a significant shareholder for G-Corporation. He is also set on taking revenge versus Kazuya.
Lee is an incredibly smug and conceited ladies' man with an immense sense of class, unafraid to flaunt his wealth. Though eccentric to the point of femininity and just as scheming as his adoptive father, Lee is ultimately good-natured and holds a great contempt towards Kazuya and Heihachi. Lee is also a successful businessman and extremely knowledgeable within the robotics field, which proved helpful in reviving Alisa. He is a tactical expert, as he successfully rescued Jin with the help of Alisa and Lars, and was even willing to blow up his own property, unafraid of the potential losses.
Lee Chaolan has distinctive silver hair which covers most of the top part of his head and has brown eyes. His primary outfit is a vest with the face of a unicorn on the back, leather pants, gloves and shoes. His secondary outfit is a classic tuxedo. Their colors vary within the series.
In Tekken, Tekken 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament, Lee fought using Mishima Style Fighting Karate combined with his own style of "Martial Arts". Being a variation of Marshall Law's moveset (which is heavily inspired by Bruce Lee's moves), it's safe to assume that Lee's actual fighting style is based on Jeet Kune Do. The only Mishima Karate moves of his, however, are his Left Splits Kick (f,f+3), which was removed in Tekken 5, and the two first kicks of his Infinite Kick Chain, which resemble the Mishima Tsunami Kick (ws+4,4) but with the other leg.
Since Tekken 4 and onwards, Lee's fighting style is listed simply as "Martial Arts", alluding to the idea that Lee fights using hybridized techniques from other fighting styles combined into one. From then on, many of his attack movements and motions stem from JKD, taekwondo, boxing and even savate techniques.
