Twelve is one of many prototypes for a new line of fabricated mutants that can't be permanently harmed and has no memory. It was entered into the tournament to try it's effectiveness. Twelve is the ultimate result of Gill's "G-Project," a biological warfare operation overseen by Dr. Kure and Urien after the completion of Necro. It appears Twelve considers Urien to be his father. Eleven is an earlier prototype of Twelve.
A mimetic genetic creation, Twelve is able to assume the forms of other people and change the shape of any part of his body to fit the task at hand. Twelve was also supposed to exterminate Necro, but that didn't happen. For some reason, Twelve is only capable of expressing himself in a binary code cypher (00001 = A, 00010 = B, etc).

At first glance in 1999, I didn't think Twelve really "fit in" to the Street Fighter series, as SFIII didn't really need another 'oddball' design. However, Twelve turned out to be a really interesting & effective character thanks to his incredible animation, interesting moves, and the fact that he/it can change into every other 3rd Strike character and use their full moveset (minus supers), similar to Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat. Like all other SFIII characters, Twelve's character sprite is a triumph of 2D animation... with Twelve performing so many "other-worldly" movements and morphing abilities.

Love him or hate him, Twelve is an original and memorable fighting game character. While visually lacking excitement in his default form in some ways, Twelve packs a punch and is a really fun character to use if you're into playing SFIII: 3rd Strike. Also worth pointing out is the way Twelve mimics the other characters' voices after he morphs into them. Another small attention to detail and aspect that makes him entertaining as hell!
