Two more characters have been announced to appear in Dead or Alive 5. DOATEC leader helena Douglas and former DOATEC scientist Lisa Hamilton will make a return in the September-due sequel. Find their character descriptions below.
Helena Douglas, also known as “Fortune’s Heiress,” is the current leader of the Dead or Alive Tournament Executive Committee (DOATEC) and the daughter of Fame Douglas, founder of DOATEC. As a famous opera singer and Pi Gua Quan martial artist, Helena’s refined elegance translates into a quick yet graceful fighting style that allows her to pull off smooth windmill-like combinations that overwhelm her opponents. After the apparent destruction of DOATEC after the last tournament, Helena has re-emerged to announce the reformed DOATEC and issue an open invitation to all potential competitors to the fifth Dead or Alive Tournament.
Lisa Hamilton, also known as “La Mariposa,” is a former scientist for the Dead or Alive Tournament Executive Committee (DOATEC) and an accomplished luchadora. Lisa’s unpredictable lucha libre style combines moves she learned while training with friend and fellow DOA competitor Tina Armstrong during high school and her own blend of high-flying kicks. Her unorthodox style makes her a difficult opponent to counter and defend against effectively. Little is known as to why Lisa has returned to the fifth DOA Tournament, but the reemergence DOATEC has once again brought “La Mariposa” back into action.
Watch Helena and Lisa go at it in a new arena called “Depth” below.
