Sagat

Sagat is a boss character in the early editions of Capcom's Street Fighter fighting game series. He was later turned into a regular, playable character.

According to his official biography, Sagat was born in Thailand on July 2, 1955. He stands 226 cm (almost 7' 5") and weighs 109 kg. He is skilled at free diving, and can hold his breath for 20 minutes. His blood type is B. He likes strong opponents, and dislikes people who do small things.

Sagat won the title of God of Muay Thai from Nuah Kahn as a teenager. He defended his title from a Muay Thai fighter named Go Hibiki, in a match that cost Sagat the use of his right eye and Go's life. Go's son, Dan, swore revenge on Sagat.

Sagat trained Adon, and held the first World Warrior tournament. Only one fighter managed to reach Sagat: a young karate practitioner named Ryu. Sagat practically crushed him. When he had felt that the battle had been won, Sagat reached down to help Ryu up. Unfortunately, Ryu lost control of himself and got up fist first, striking Sagat across the chest with a Metsu Shoryuken, burning a scar on his chest.

Consumed with rage and hatred, Sagat eagerly joined Shadoloo, M. Bison's (Vega in the Japanese version) organization, to find Ryu and get a rematch to reclaim his shattered honour, eventually becoming one of the grand masters at the second World Warrior tournament.

During his tenure in Shadoloo (which had been previously known as "Shadowlaw"), Sagat fought Dan, and saw how anger can make people do things they regret, so he allowed Dan to defeat him. Meanwhile, Adon mocked his teacher for losing to Ryu and challenged him for the title of God of Muay Thai. His rage blinded him, and Sagat lost to Adon, but not before beating him so hard that he would be in traction for four months.

Sagat realized that the scar was a result of the killing intent which possessed Ryu called the Satsui No Hadou. Finally understanding that true rivals should not be blinded by rage and hatred, nor be seduced by it, Sagat quit Shadoloo.

However, when he tendered his resignation, Bison presented him with a brainwashed Ryu, and told him he could have the rematch he always wanted. Not wanting it that way, Sagat still fought Ryu, but only to break M. Bison's mind control, yelling at Ryu that a true warrior would not give in to such treachery. Ryu snapped out, rejected the Satsui no Hadou, and they drove Bison off. Sagat finally realized that such rivalries have its limits.

While Sagat's goal in the second World Warrior tournament was a rematch with Ryu, his hopes was eclipsed when Akuma killed Bison with the Shun Goku Satsu, the only official outcome in Street Fighter II. Understanding Ryu's commitment to reject the Satsui No Hadou and to continue his quest for self-purity, Sagat was not included in Street Fighter III. Sagat will not rematch with Ryu until Ryu finally purifies himself completely, or Sagat believes in pure fights rather than fights that emit hatred.
