Dr. Bosconovitch (also spelled Boskonovitch) originally worked for the Mishima Zaibatsu. During the first Tekken, the
Manji ninja clan (led by Yoshimitsu)
raided the Mishima Zaibatsu's vault. During the raid, Yoshimitsu lost his arm
and was found by Bosconovitch who helped him escape. He was kidnapped by Kazuya
Mishima in the run-up to Tekken 2 and was forced to work for him.
Some of the many projects involved the creation of the bio-weapons Roger
and Alex and the completion of the Prototype
Jack unit. He began the "Cold Sleep" project as a means of
preserving his daughter's body (who seemingly died) by using Anna
Williams as test subjects, putting them to sleep for 20 years without having them age.
After completing his tasks, and before being executed, Dr. Bosconovitch
was rescued by Yoshimitsu. Nearly twenty years later, he contracted a rare
disease that affects the spine. In order to cure himself and to revive his
daughter, he needed the blood of the fighting god, Ogre.
He turned to an old friend: Yoshimitsu for help. Yoshimitsu entered the Tekken
3 tournament and was successful in retrieving a sample of Ogre's blood after
it had been killed by Jin
During Tekken 4,
Yoshimitsu found an injured Bryan Fury.
He brought him to the doctor to save him. Bosconovitch explained to Bryan that
he would mechanize him and allow him to be completely reborn in a new
incarnation. Bryan lays supine in the chair and Bosconovitch held a gun-shaped
device containing sleeping gas. Bidding him sweet dreams, he injected the gas
into Bryan. Throughout, he spoke in a very gentle, paternal tone and was very
calm. However, the doctor found Bryan's body too complex, and he instead
installed a perpetual generator. Bryan proceeded to attack the doctor, as well
as Manji Clan members who were with him. While the members were slain, Bosconovitch survived, though he was severely injured. In Tekken 6, he creates
an android, Alisa, in his daughter's
image. Dr. Bosconovitch is only playable in the console version of Tekken 3.

Dr. B. debuted as a
hilarious secret character in the home version of Tekken 3. He was
definitely was one of the best and most entertaining unlockable fighting
game characters to date. He had one of the most ridiculous fighting styles ever seen in a
fighting game (he
falls down a lot). lol. He was pretty annoying to fight against in Tekken 3,
but was an effective joke character.
After a 14 year absence... Namco finally brought him back in Tekken Tag
Tournament 2. His updated fighting style is way more fleshed out than his first appearance... and no doubt as hilarious as ever. His moves and fighting
style can't even be described in words, you just have to see it. He's got some hilarious tag-team throws with several (appropriate) characters as well. Dr. B also retained many classic gimmicks and moves that he had in Tekken 3... which was a big fan
service to old school Tekken players.
