How Chris joined the Tourney
His true origin is shrouded in mystery. At one point, he formed a rock band named CYS (consisting of the first letter in the name of each band member) with Yashiro Nanakase and Shermie, with him playing the drums. He, along with Yashiro and Shermie, entered the King of Fighters 1997 to form the New Face Team by individually defeating and stealing the invitations of the qualified Sports Team, having chosen to enter after the preliminaries were over. Chris fought Heavy D!, defeated him, and took his invitation to the tournament. Their initial goal for entering the tournament was due to Yashiro's grudge and desire to get revenge on Iori Yagami, the leader of a rival band that had surpassed them in popularity. Chris, Shermie and Yashiro themselves were originally unaware of their own Orochi heritage.
As the tournament progressed, the Orochi blood within Chris and his friends awakened and they regained their memories of being three of the "Four Heavenly Kings". As loyal members of Orochi, they continued to gather power to resurrect Orochi. They kidnapped Yuki as a sacrifice for Orochi to regain his full potential and triggered the Riot of the Blood within Iori and Leona with their presence. Orochi returns to the world using Chris's body as the host but is re-sealed again by the Three Sacred Treasures: Kyo, Iori, and Chizuru. In the New Face team's ending, all three members sacrifice themselves in hopes of resurrecting Orochi.
After being resurrected by the Genma demons, Chris is ordered to hunt down a warrior who might be a danger to them, Roberto Frois.
