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, I didn't think Twelve really fit into the SF series, as the SFIII series didn't really need another 'oddball' design. However, Twelve turned out to be a really cool & effective design in the series since he/it can change into every other Third Strike character, not unlike Shang Tsung in the Mortal Kombat series. Twelve's character sprite also featured some truly epic 2D animation... Which of course is a big plus for any fighting game character design.

I suppose some random bloke who can change into every Street Fighter character probably wouldn't make much sense in the Street Fighter universe (I know what you're thinking)... But a walking... living... breathing... yeast infection does?!?!? LOL. He's a clever design at least, and he surely packs a slew of cool attacks, besides being able to steal others moves. Also worth pointing out, the way Twelve "mimics" the other Street Fighters' voices in the game is also very entertaining, and truly clever.
