"Concentrate not on destroying your foe, but on obtaining your own victory."
Long ago, Gouken and his brother Akuma studied a nameless, deadly martial art under their master Goutetsu. Whereas Akuma embraced the darker side of the art and focused on its ability to kill, Gouken fostered the spiritual, peaceful aspects of its discipline. After Akuma's complete embracing of the Satsui no Hadou let him to murder their master, both brothers went their separate ways to perfect their art. Gouken opened his own dojo, rejecting those, such as Dan Hibiki, who harbored vengeance and malice in their hearts. Having found an orphaned baby Ryu, Gouken took the child under his wing as his first pupil. Some years later, Ken Masters was taken in as his second student. Having been friends with Ken's father, the master was delighted to instill humility and discipline in the boy. One night, Akuma came calling at his brother's dojo. He demanded a match to see who had come closest to mastering the assassin's style. Akuma was soundly defeated and, despite his insistance that he be killed for his loss, was spared by his brother. Years later, when Ryu and Ken were capable enough to leave the dojo and continue their studies in the open world, Akuma returned for a rematch. This time, the devil emerged the victor, apparently killing his brother with the dreadful Shun Goku Satsu. Little did he know, however, that Gouken had managed to empty his soul of all emotion, sparing him but leaving him in a death-like coma. Thought dead, his students buried him once they'd learned of the encounter. Years later, the master has revived, seeking out the two boys that have grown into capable men to see where their paths have taken them...
