Lee is one of the eight unplayable / CPU characters from the classic Street Fighter (1987).

He is one of the few classic Street Fighters that never returned in one of the sequels. Like similar characters, he got a new illustration and a small profile on the Japanese Street Fighter V / Database website but there are no hints he could become a playable character.

Yun and Yang from Street Fighter III are actually his nephews. His fighting style is Bājíquán, a Chinese style known for many short ranged attacks with the elbow. In his illustration from 2016, Lee looks more like a practitioner of the popular “Drunken Master” style however.
