SFA3 Eagle.gif

Eagle was one of the British opponents in the original Street Fighter. He is named after the Golfing term "Eagle." The other English character Birdie is also named after a golf term. Of all the characters in the original Street Fighter, Eagle is the only one whose second appearance would not be within the Street Fighter or Street Fighter Alpha series. In his case, it was Capcom vs. SNK 2. He did, however, join the SFA series afterwards in the GBA and PSP versions of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Eagle was born in England, possibly in the late 1950s. A cold-blooded individual, Eagle is a bouncer who was employed as a newly-rich noble family's bodyguard during the first World Warrior tournament. He was hired to defeat Sagat, but was unsuccessful and returned to the bar scene, eventually becoming a living legend. In the GBA version of Street Fighter Alpha 3, Eagle sought to perfect the beauty in his fighting style. Each of Eagle's special/super moves are named after a British city, locale, or historical reference.

Eagle is a tall, muscular fighter with blonde hair arranged in a pompadour. In the original Street Fighter, Eagle's outfit consisted of a tuxedo without the jacket, a bow tie, and suspenders. However, in Capcom vs. SNK 2 and later versions of SFA3, he wears a white dress shirt with a red ascot tie, black pants, white gloves, and of course, his braces (suspenders). His pomp, braces (suspenders), and formal dress make Eagle some sort of mixed counter-culture counterpart to Birdie, a punk.

As of Capcom vs. SNK 2, Eagle became a tribute to Freddie Mercury, with win quotes and inter-character dialogue reminiscient of Mercury. As a result, there are strong hints that Eagle is in fact a homosexual.
