Street Fighter 6 Manon

The youngest of three siblings in a wealthy French family, Manon grew up in a happy family with her parents and older brothers. However, this turned sour when her mother left them, telling her daughter that she would be "just fine" without her because she was "strong". Manon would go on to despise those words and set out to prove that she would be more than "just fine" in her mother's absence.

Manon pursued multiple careers with great success, achieving staggering heights as a ballerina, supermodel, and world champion judoka, but her success has not left her complacent. She is an idealist and is constantly seeking self-improvement in the pursuit of beauty, both with her appearance and her fighting style. Incorporating her passion for dance with her fierce fighting background, Manon seeks to become the world's strongest model.
