King is a female bouncer/bar owner from Southtown who acts and dresses very masculine most of the times.

Story (in the KOF Orochi Saga)[edit]

KOF Orochi King.png

King had moved to England by 1994 and was running a bar there called L'amor. This is the reason it's The Woman's Fighters Team's country of origin in The King of Fighters '94, although none of the characters were from England (King herself was supposedly born in France). Her formation of the women's team would suggest she is less at odds with her womanhood as she had been in Art of Fighting. Throughout the course of the series, King has been the leader of this team. She has entered with the likes of Blue Mary, Kasumi Todoh, and Mai Shiranui. She was keen to demonstrate 'the strength of women'. The Woman's Fighters Team (sometimes called the 'Gorgeous Team') has been a mainstay in the character line-up ever since KOF '94 and has been in almost every single game.

Despite the constant presence of King's team, their role in the games rarely has any real impact on the overall story. Their largest role thus far is arguably 'adopting' Chizuru Kagura and introducing her to normal life after years of servitude in The King of Fighters '97. This was in fact largely the work of King's little brother Jan using some emotional blackmail. Jan had been ill during previous games, but was reunited with King by Mai Shiranui and Kasumi Todoh (her teammates for that tournament) in the Women's Fighters Team's ending for the game and King shed a tear of joy when she was reunited with her brother.
