Original name





Elena (エレナ) is a character in the Street Fighter series. She first appeared in Street Fighter III: New Generation.

Elena is a princess in an African tribe that has a cultural tradition of fighting, making her a warrior princess. She may have been born in Kenya, but her fighting style is Capoeira which utilizes her long, strong legs with dance-like moves and fancy legwork. Her father, the tribe's chief, is a witch doctor. However, he also has a PhD in medicine obtained from a French university. Elena's views of fighting and martial arts differ from most, due to her light-hearted personality allowing her to befriend some people and annoy others. She wants to travel around the world, meeting new friends along the way. She studied as an exchange student in Japan, where she met her best friend Narumi. She later continued those studies in France.

Elena's voice actress speaks English with a Japanese-Australian accent, despite the character being Kenyan. Elena often greets her opponent at the beginning of a match with "Jambo!", Swahili for hello. Her multi-colored bangles were a good showcase of Capcom's new hardware at the time; CPS-3. The earlier CPS-2 allowed each sprite to be colored from a palette of only 16 colors.

Elena has white hair, blue eyes, and dark skin. She is barefoot while fighting and has long, powerful legs. Her attire consists of a white two-piece bikini-like outfit with pale red, sky-blue, gold and purple bands on her neck, arms, wrists, shins, and ankles.
