Sergei Dragunov is a recent character that was introduced in the Tekken 5 along with Lili. Sergei is known as a member of Spetsnaz, a Russian Special Operatives and is characterized as a cold man and a very calculated person.
You will almost never hear Sergei Dragunov carry a conversation with anyone, as he only has a few lines of dialogue along the gameplay. Sergei is a very patriotic man that will care only about him and his country. Even if he is such a cold man, his hobby appears to be singing.
It would be easy to assume that Dragunov is an evil character, but he is not. He just doesn’t care about all the fighting in the world. Dragunov shows no empathy or mercy when he is fighting his enemies or opponents as he is very focused on his mission and will do anything to see the mission go to the end.
In the 6th Tekken, Sergei Dragunov is ordered by the Russian Military to capture the Devil. To do so, Sergei manages to get in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, but as it turns out, he is unable to capture it.
During this time, Rusia is facing a civil war, and everyone believes that this is caused by the Mishima Zaibatsu Operatives. Sergei receives the mission to stop this uprising and this way he is training by fighting across the country. He now leaves for Japan to stop the corporation from gaining any more power and to infiltrate the new tournament. At the end of the tournament, the Russian military has captured Azazel. While being captured, Raven shows up from a plane and extracts a colored orb from Azazel and manages to escape with it, but Sergei outsmarts him and manages to detonate the plane without any problems.
Dragunov is a powerful character with many dangerous moves, and he is great under pressure. He will focus on his mission so much that nothing could ever stay in his path to victory. As for the fighting style, Sergei Dragunov uses the Commando Sambo that is a modified style of the offensive Sambo. He is also a trained member of the Russian army, and he excels in hand to hand combats. If this was not enough that you should know that he can also perform moves from the Mixed Martial Arts without a problem.
Many believe that Sergei Dragunov is not able to speak, but this is not true as during the game he proved himself able to speak quite eloquently, but he just doesn’t like and want to talk very much. Most of the time you will see him sing outside the battlefield.
The ending of the last Tekken game left the story unfinished so we expect that in the next one, the story of Sergei Dragunov will continue as new missions appear all the time, and he is set to complete every single one of them with great success and in every possible way he can do it.
