Urien is a character from the Street Fighter series, first appearing in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact. He is a ruthless former disciple of the Secret Society, resenting the supremacy that the organization entrusted to his malevolent older brother, Gill.


Urien's personality can be best described as tyrannical and authoritative, much in contrast with the benevolent and compassionate nature of his brother Gill (though in reality Gill's far from a good person and is quite fanatical).

Urien also renounces any noble traits and elements associated with leadership, regarding them as worthless, and instead seeks fear and subjugation through his reign, much like a despotic, oppressive, totalitarian, and domineering tyrant. Accordingly, he screams phrases such as "crush", "destroy" and "kill" during most of his special attacks, which - along with their names - highlight his violent and destructive nature, and also points to a lack of self-control stemming from emotional instability.

In Street Fighter V, a younger Urien maintains his tyrannical behavior and even antagonizes his comrades and associates, calling Helen a 'rat' and chastising her for plotting behind his back. Urien displays a level of shortsightedness when he tries to kill Nash on a whim after defeating him, despite Urien's very own technology being used in Nash's resurrection. Urien's patience runs thin when dealing with those he deems 'Commoners', as shown when he throws an Aegis Reflector at Rashid for so much as touching him.

Urien's nickname in the Street Fighter III series is even "The Treacherous Disciple", alluding to his status as the Judas to Gill's Jesus. Urien frequently displays sadistic tendencies, and takes a lot of pride in becoming the "True Emperor". Urien also dismisses the cryogenically preserved brains of his predecessors as "ugly and stupid" and "a mass of junk with no ability to take positive action".

It can be also seen Urien is extremely distrustful of anyone else, but himself, with a constant vigilance against insubordination and betrayal to allies and enemies alike, perhaps as a subconscious result of his domineering and tyrannical behavior and an instinctual fear of someone out to get him as a result.
