Tekken 7 is adding Lee Chaolan (and his alter ego Violet) to the fighting game’s roster, Bandai Namco announced at Gamescom today.

Lee will play into Tekken 7’s story mode, as he was raised alongside young Kazuya Mishima by Heihachi. Based on new screens released today, Tekken 7’s story will also feature a very young ‘Boy Kazuya’ in training battles with his father.

Whil the main story mode will focus on the Mishima clan, Bandai Namco highlighted another central plot point: Claudio Serafino and his group of exorcists. Here’s Claudio’s synopsis:

The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from the world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the general public. Although it is unknown how their existence was subsequently revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate. The Archers of Sirius naturally refused but this did not stop the persistent pressure from the Mishima Zaibatsu and eventually the news of their unrelenting harassment reached the de facto leader of the Archers of Sirius, Claudio Serafino. Determined to uncover the motives behind the Mishima Zaibatsu’s aggressive recruitment tactics, Claudio begins to investigate the powerful conglomerate.Tekken 7 is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in 2017.
