Background/History: Vega is the son of a wealthy Spanish family. Raised in splendor, Vega has never wanted for anything, and has used his great wealth to entertain himself. Bored with the drab and dreary mundane world, Vega has attempted to turn himself into a physically perfect human. He has undergone an extensive weight-training regime, as well as instruction in savate, ninjutsu, and bullfighting. In turn he participated in a variety of martial arts and bullfighting competitions, and basked into the adulation's of the crowd.

Until his parents cut off his funds.

Needing a source of income, Vega turned to his martial skill. He became a high-priced assassin, a job he excelled at. After a freak accident with the running of the bulls in Barcelona claimed his parent's lives, Vega has once again had access to the family fortune. In addition, he works as a freelance assassin for Shadoloo and M. Bison.

Personality/Motivation: Simply but, Vega is vain. Incredibly vain. He is the best, and knows it, and isn't afraid to tell you so (or even better, prove it too you). He revels in his beauty, and feels only beautiful things should be allowed to exist. That which is not beautiful should be eliminated, so as not to offend (or should be used to make life easier for the beautiful). As his main motivation is money (needed to keep up his extravagant lifestyle), Vega is very ruthless, and will go to great lengths to complete any job given to him.

Geoff Depew writes: Vega is AMAZINGLY vain. It's almost a 20-point psych lim for the man. He doesn't wear that mask to hide his identity—he wears it to protect his face from marks, scars and bruises. If you use this character as an adversary for a PC in your game, and one of them gets him in the face with a punch, he'll probably go Enraged. If they do BODY that may leave a scar, he'll DEFINITELY go Enraged. If it does leave a scar, welcome that player to his new Hunted...

Quote: “Only I understand the pain of being too strong and beautiful!”
“Your cries of agony... They are music to my ears!”
“While I taste my victory, you will agonize in defeat”.

Powers/Tactics: Vega is a master of "Spanish Ninjutsu," a self-developed style combining savate's kicks, with ninjutsu's acrobatics, grabs, and throws. Vega himself, a former matador, is very fast on his feet, and moves constantly while fighting, leaping about (especially off a nearby wall) to lash out at his target with a strong kick or a swipe from his three-tined "claw." One of Vega's favorite maneuvers is to leap at his opponent, tumbling along the ground, and come up in a barrage of punches and kicks. Often this is enough to stun a target long enough for a finishing thrust with the claw.

Appearance: Tall and well-muscled, Vega has the physique of a Greek god. Incredibly handsome and graceful, Vega wears his long hair in a braid that falls down his back almost to his waist. When fighting, his costume consists of two-toned, spandex knee-length breeches, white stockings, low shoes, and a brilliant sash. As he fights shirtless, the tattoo of a snake wrapping around his right arm and across his chest is clearly visible. The claw is worn on the left arm. He also wears a white face mask to protect his face from being cut.

Designer's Notes: In the original Japanese version of Street Fighter, Vega's name was "Balrog." Names were swapped around with several other characters to avoid a lawsuit. In the original Street Fighter II animated movie, Vega and Chun Li get into a fight in Chun Li's apartment that has to be seen to be fully appreciated. It ends with Chun Li kicking Vega through a wall.

This character sheet is adapted from the Street Fighter game originally published by White Wolf. Characteristics have been derived using the conversion notes given in The Ultimate Mentalist. Skills have been derived from skills and skill descriptions given in the White Wolf RPG. The values for skills were derived from the idea that 1 dot = 8-, 2 dots = 11-, and each additional dot as a +1 to the roll. Other skills, powers and disadvantages are taken from material given in the RPG sourcebooks.
