He debuted as part of the “New Faces” Team in The King of Fighters’97 and returned only in the “Dream Match” games of the series like KOF’98 and ‘2002  and in KOF Neowave (2004) as well as in the remakes. He did also appear in The King of Fighters: Kyo (1998).

Chris is born in Sweden but almost nothing is known about him. He is one of the four Heavenly Kings of Orochi and one of the mid-bosses in KOF’97 in his Orochi form. Chris is also the chosen host for the body of Orochi.

According to his backstory in The King of Fighters’97 he was the drummer of the band CYS (Chris, Yashiro, Shermie) and defeated Heavy D! to steal his invitation for the KOF tournament.
