She enters the first Tekken tournament to take revenge on "Mishima."

the events of Tekken 2, Kazuya Mishima finds out that the pendant that Michelle wears around her neck carries the secret to an ancient treasure, and plans to take it from her.

Before the events of Tekken 3, Michelle is kidnapped by Heihachi Mishima for her pendant, which is the reason Julia entered the tournament. Heihachi plans to use her pendant to awaken Ogre in the Aztec Temple and succeeds. After the events of Tekken 3, Michelle's whereabouts are unknown.

The original "Indian Girl" of Tekken was definitely a memorable character at the time of her debut. You can call her the "Pocahontas" of the fighting game world. Of course, she's best known for wearing her stereotypical Native American attire, and she always made it look pretty sexy. ;) Her alternate outfit in Tekken 1 is decent but kinda plain, and her Tekken 2 second player outfit with zebra socks & armbands is a bit loud & awkward... but somehow, she makes it work. lol.  

Michelle was always a "sleeper" character in Tekken, which is likely why Julia replaced her in Tekken 3 and after. Besides, Michelle was gettin' up there in age anyway. lol. Julia became a more developed character overall, but her connection to Michelle is unforgettable to veteran Tekken fans. Next to Jun, Michelle is probably the "nicest" out of all of the fighters from Tekken... which kinda makes sense since she appears to be sitting out of the tournament these days. After years of absence, Michelle returned in TTT2. Her updated fighting style features a fan-approved mix of new & old techniques, and her updated look is nothing short of hotness. Now that Julia is "Jaycee", Michelle is once again the lone Indian babe of Tekken! ;)
