Jun Kazama is an
officer of the WWWC, a wildlife protection organization. She is called "The
Chosen One" by her relatives. She is highly psychic and can sense a
mysterious power surrounding Kazuya
Mishima, which turns out to be the Devil Gene threatening to turn him into a
demonic version of himself. At the WWWC's orders, she sets out to arrest Kazuya,
who smuggles environmentally-protected animals. When the King of Iron Fist
Tournament 2 was coming to an end, Jun comes to the stunning realization that
Kazuya's supernatural strength stems from Devil.
But she cannot help being drawn to him, propelled by a mystic force beyond her
During the King of Iron
Fist Tournament 2, Jun became pregnant by Kazuya. At the conclusion of the
tournament, Devil left Kazuya and attempted to possess Jun's unborn child. Jun
however, proved to be superior and defeated Devil, before fleeing to the forests
of Yakushima, where she intended to raise her child away from evil and danger.
She later gave birth to a baby boy who she named Jin.
15 years after the birth of her son, Jun sensed the approaching of Ogre
and warned Jin to seek out his grandfather Heihachi
Mishima should anything happen to her.
One night, Ogre did indeed attack. Jun screamed for Jin to run away, but he
wished to protect his beloved mother from Ogre and charged at him, but was well
outmatched and was quickly knocked unconscious. When Jin woke up, the Kazama's
house had burned to the ground and Jun was missing. Jin searched frantically
through the rubble, but couldn't find his mother anywhere. Jin assumed that Jun
was dead and swore revenge on Ogre. Unknown
is a possessed version of Jun, but it is not confirmed if this is part of the
canon story. Asuka
(somehow related to Jun) took Jun's place in the later of the Tekken series
and uses a similar fighting style. While many believed Jun had
died after the battle with Ogre, it was revealed in TEKKEN 8 that she is
actually alive but went "missing" for many years.

In Tekken 2,
Jun presented one of the most fluid (and unique) fighting styles ever seen
in a fighting game. To contrast her fluidity, she could also perform some rather badass,
bone-breaking throws. Jun is a serene, pretty female fighter,
which is something the Tekken series
severely needed at the time (remember those ugly Tekken 1 character
portraits? LOL!). Jun was a fun character to use in Tekken 2 and a memorable
fighting game character overall.
She was only playable in one other Tekken game after Tekken 2, the non-canon
Tekken Tag Tournament. Even though it was cool to see her return, it didn't make much sense to see a "young
looking" Jun fighting alongside (or against) her matured son,
Jin. Asuka took
Jun's place in the storyline-based Tekken games and uses a handful Jun's original
moves, but also has a much different personality. After many years, Namco
finally reintroduced Jun in Tekken Tag 2. Jun's updated fighting style
contains a plethora of new animations, and once again... Jun is one of the most
fluid fighters around. To all the Jun players out there... STOP SPAMMING. lol.
Jun can be used beautifully and effectively. ;)
