Lion Rafale

A wealthy, prominent French family, the Rafales were known first and foremost for their success in aircraft research and development, but this business was only a front for an underground weapons trade. Lion Rafale grew up with the best education available, and had been groomed all his life to follow in his fathers footsteps, but once he discovered his father was a merchant of death, Lion wanted nothing at all to do with the family business. His father has given him an ultimatum: if he wants out of the family legacy, he has to prove he can be successful enough in whatever he does to be worthy of the Rafale name. In other words, if Lion wins the World Fighting Tournament, his father will free him of all family obligations.

VF1 Storyline 


VF2 Storyline 

Lion was born into the Rafale family, one of the most wealthy families in France. They are involved in the aircraft industry. This business is but a front for their involvement in illegal arms contracts with terrorists. Lion has been practising Toruken under an instructor as part of management education since he was five. He resents his father's control over his life and during one of their arguments, his father proposed to Lion to win the World Fighting Tournament as a condition to be freed of his duties. Thus Lion is participating in the tournament competition to break the bonds of his criminal family.
