Adon

Adon is a character from the Street Fighter series of video games.
According to his official biography, Adon was born in Thailand, with no year or date specified, but he 5-7 years younger than Sagat. He stands 182 cm and weighs 73 kg. He is skilled at wai khru, a Thai dance (a pre-fight ritual dance, similar to Krabi Krabong), and likes Muay Thai, his fighting style. He dislikes Sagat and people with big mouths.
Adon became Sagat's student three years after Sagat became God of Muay Thai. Frequently likened to a "lesser version of Sagat," even though he strived to differentiate himself with more acrobatic techniques, Adon entered his World Warrior tournament to prove he was more than that. The cocky Adon let his guard down when he faced Ryu, who took him out with a single Shoryuken.
Adon was not mad at Ryu for defeating him and Sagat, he was mad at Sagat for being unable to uphold Muay Thai's honour (conveniently forgetting how Ryu had pasted him much easier). He challenged Sagat for the title of God of Muay Thai and won, but the enraged Sagat had done so much damage to him in the fight that Adon had to be hospitalized for months.
When he was on his feet again, Adon heard that a mysterious fighter had killed one of his challengers, using the same power that Ryu had used to defeat Sagat. Adon swore to find the stranger and take his power for his own. To this day, it is believed that Adon still seeks him out.
