Lien Neville (リアン・ネヴィル) is a character from SNK's fighting game series KOF: Maximum Impact, part of The King of Fighters series. She also makes an appearance in the OVA The King of Fighters: Another Day. Her nickname is "The Sexy Avenger of the Shadows" (復讐者ふくしゅう-しゃ美影みかげ).

She is voiced by Fumiko Inoue and Claire Caponigro.

Development

She conceptually began as the polar opposite to fellow KOF participant, Mai Shiranui. While Mai represents a "sexy and beautiful kunoichi", Lien represents another counterpart: the "sexy Western femme fatale". Her outfits are purposely designed to be "tight and constricting" to contrast Mai's clothing, which is made to allow for easy and quick movements. Her curled hair -also made to differ from Mai's long and straight hair- needed several retakes, along with a long trial-and-error process for the game's modelers.[1] To further the contrast between the two assassins, efforts were made to make Lien more serious and darker than Mai, despite being one of the heroines in the series.

Personality

Lien is a cold woman who kills without remorse. This is the way Duke raised her and a part of her is thankful toward him, while another part intends on killing him.

Powers

  • Energy Geyser - By stomping or punching the ground, Lien can call forth a geyser of energy.

Fighting Style

She fights using an array of close combat techniques. She has a GPS in her clothing and a special bracelet. By saying Shien Ose (Requesting Backup) to the bracelet, a special satellite-weapon fires a beam of energy in front of her.
