Biography

Story

Zafina was born somewhere in the Middle East and lived with a clan of fighters who were entrusted with the duty of guarding the tomb of an ancient demon, Azazel. She has quickly proven herself to be a mighty warrior, dispatching a whole group of soldiers that tried to get into the tomb. 

Outside of her duty as a guardian, Zafina used astrology powers to predict the future. At some point, her premonitions started getting increasingly ominous. After approaching her guru for advice, he told her of an old prophecy about two evil stars meeting each other, which would lead to the release of Azazel and the end of the world. She immediately traveled to the tomb to find Azazel had awakened.

After establishing that Kazuya and Jin are the two evil stars, she travels for the King of Iron Fist tournament intending to kill them. Before she could accomplish that, Lars and Jin manage to destroy Azazel, but not completely. Part of the demon's spirit escaped, forcing Zafina to use a sealing technique to bind the demon within her body, which quickly begins to affect her. Knowing that with the two evil stars still alive, Azazel has a chance to revive itself, Zafina sets out to find Kazuya and Jin once again.

Personality

Zafina is a stoic fighter with a strong sense of duty.  Zafina has a good understanding of what could happen if her mission is neglected, so she carries herself with appropriate diligence and focus.

Appearance

Zafina is a woman of average height and weight with black hair. Her original outfit consisted of a golden bra with a wide purple bottom stripe, golden arm gloves with golden strings, a red skirt with a silver top line, a red scarf, and sandals. In Tekken 7, she received a significant redesign. She is now wearing blue high heels, pantyhose with floral patterns, a blue dress with long sleeves with complicated astrology signs pattern, and a continued floral design. Around the waist, she wears a golden chain with a spider buckle, and on her arms, she has various jewelry in the form of rings and bracelets. Due to the events of Tekken 6, her left arm is purple, with a glass-like appearance and sharp claws.

Playstyle.

Zafina is an excellent, well-rounded character. Her great movement and pokes allow Zafina to efficiently control the space and position of her opponents. Due to this, players with a firm grasp of the fundamentals can find her very rewarding. Zafina has several strong points on offense as well, with evasive launchers, great tracking kick to shut down sidesteps, and powerful counter-hit moves. While the abundance of stances might make her look complicated, Zafina doesn't necessarily rely on them. However, players who practice stance transition and play creatively can net great rewards from her stance mixups.
