"The Flame and the Rose"
|My second script for Street Fighter involved the character Rose, who, one way or another, bears a strong resemblance to my Scorpio Rose. Roger Slifer and Will Meugniot certainly recognized that when they assigned it to me over Will's outline.
Rose dreams of an evil fire, so she does Tarot to find out why, and learns of a Fool, a Beast, and a Man of Doom, all of whom have recently increased their chi force. She fixes on Ken and Blanka as the Fool and Beast, and, assuming they're evil, sets them to kill each other. But when they can't, she realizes they could be her allies. Through them she learns that the Man of Doom is Bison. She begins a mystical battle with Bison while Ken and Blanka fight physically with his minions.
