Centuries ago, the clans of Iori Yagami and Kyo Kusanagi allied together to seal away the Orochi, a multiheaded dragon. Alas, Kyo's ancestors got the recognition; Iori's did not. They retaliated by striking a pact with the monster, earning the control of purple flames, but cursed with shorter lives. After generations of spilling blood on either side, the Yagami-Kusanagi vendetta makes a heated showdown in the King of Fighters tournament, where Iori rivals Kyo.

True to his ancestors' pact, hateful vengeance courses through Iori's veins. Purple flames fuel his rush-in combos, followed by a grab and a final blow. But if he's not careful, Iori can succumb to the Riot of Blood, where the Orochi seizes control of his body and puts him on a murderous rampage. Even his teammates can attest to this.
