History

Tekken 3

Eddy was born into one of the richest families in Brazil. Ever since he was a small boy, he knew he would one day take over the family business. He was well-liked in his home town because he was a hard worker who treated others as his equals.


One day, when he was 19, Eddy came home from school to find his father shot and dying. He recalled that his father had been unusually nervous and fearful in recent weeks.


Eddy's father was working to destroy the drug cartel in Brazil. His untimely death occurred just when he had obtained enough evidence to put the kingpins away for good. In his last breaths, Eddy's father told him, "Now is not the right time to fight. Falsely admit to the crime and hide in prison. Only there will you be safe". Eddy went along with his father's last wish and the model student went from a life of luxury to incarceration as a murderer. Retail selling Street selling is the bottom of the chain and can be accomplished through purchasing from prostitutes, through cloaked retail stores or refuse houses for users in the act located in red-light districts which often also deal in paraphernalia, dealers marketing merriment at night clubs and other events...


Prison life was hell and not a day went by that Eddy didn't vow to get even with his father's killers. One day during a prison riot he watched an old man with great power fighting using a technique he called Capoeira. For 8 years Eddy practiced until he became a master and could be considered a lethal weapon. Capoeira (IPA: ) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art, game, and culture created by enslaved Africans in Brazil during the 17th Century. ...


Upon his release from prison, Eddy heard about the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 and the Mishima Financial Empire (MFE). He decided to enter the tournament, believing he could persuade the MFE to help him seek his long-awaited revenge. Tekken 3 is the third installment in the popular Tekken fighting game series. ...


Tekken 4

Although Eddy Gordo was a playable character in Tekken 4, he wasn't an actual participant in the tournament. It was implied that Eddy has disappeared during the fourth tournament for seeking vengeance against the person responsible for the death of his father (later turned out to be Kazuya Mishima). His student, also the granddaughter of his master, Christie Monteiro, entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to find Eddy, as this was the only clue that can lead her to him.

Tekken 5

Eddy's master was about to be freed from prison after a long incarceration. Eddy went to the prison to meet his master but instead found a frail old man that was only a shadow of the strong Capoeira master he once knew.


Upon taking his master to a hospital, Eddy was told his master had an incurable illness and had less than six months to live. However, it may be possible to discover a cure if they had access to the technology and resources of the Mishima Zaibatsu.


Several days later, Eddy decides to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 with Christie.


Tekken 6

At the conclusion of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Eddy spoke alone with Jin Kazama. Jin offered to lend him his money and resources to save his master's life. If Eddy joined the Mishima Zaibatsu, he promised to find a cure for Eddy's master's illness.


Eddy joins the Mishima Zaibatsu, and he is involved with a number of criminal operations just as The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 approaches.

Eddy walks over to it, and he sees three photos of Kazuya Mishima, the one who was responsible for his father's death.
