Chrstie Monteiro the granddaughter of Eddy Gordo's master (see Ho Chi Myong) and Eddy's student. She has replaced Eddy as the prominently-featured capoeira fighter in the Tekken series. In Tekken 4, she entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to search for Eddy, and in Tekken 5, she entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 because she wished to use the Mishima Zaibatsu's cutting-edge technology to save her grandfather. As of Tekken 6, Christie enters the 6th Tournament to find Eddy and her grandfather, who have mysteriously gone missing.
In the beginning Namco wanted to have a female Capoeirist, but at the time, felt unsure, prompting them to create Eddy Gordo in Tekken 3. In the next one, Namco had enough confidence to release Christie as a new character, and the reception was well-received. With her almond-brown eyes, tanned skin, curvy figure and sexy clothing, she took the spotlight from other Tekken girls, adding sex appeal and style to the series. She is seen to care deeply for those in her life, mainly her grandfather Ho Chi Myong and her master Eddy Gordo. Though many fans see a possible love interest between the two, nothing as of late has indicated or even hinted romantic feelings between the two
