Initially the character was intended to be female, but development and design problems meant the gender was changed to that of a male. Later on Tekken introduced a female character Christie Monteiro based on these early development designs and ideas. Eddy Gordo is a Namco Bandai character and first appears in Tekken Forever #1.
