We had thought them to be destroyed, yet I cannot shake the feeling that they still lurk in the shadows, weaving dark and evil plots, preparing for the moment when they will strike again. The power I possess is divine. It is not for mortal men to use for their own simple desires... Yet, I feel compelled to restore hope and vitality to my village by bringing the water back no matter what the cost. Hear me, Agni, god of fire. Watch over me as I in turn watch over those I love. Grant me the strength to vanquish evil."


Dhalsim: "Shadaloo and S.I.N.... You toy with life and try to manipulate nature to your own selfish ends. I know that evil will never truly be vanquished from this earth, and sometimes seems an endless gaping void, but still..."
Datta: "Father!"

Character StoryEdit

Stage: Apprentice AlleyEdit

Interaction 1: RashidEdit


Mahesh: "Master Dhalsim, I've come to ask you to teach me in the ways of yoga."

Dhalsim: "For what purpose do you wish to know?"

Mahesh: "My purpose... is to become stronger, and protect our people as you do."

Dhalsim: "The path of Yoga is one of harmony, not violence. Its power is not in strength, but understanding."

Mahesh: "I... I didn't mean..!"

Dhalsim: "...Maybe I could."

Mahesh: "Th...thank you wise Master! Then we..."

Rashid: "Ah, so there you are!"

Rashid (continued): "Are you THE Dhalsim? "One of the seven Yoga Masters you have to meet at least once?" That's what the net calls you."

Azam: "MASTER!"

Dhalsim: "The "net"...?"

Mahesh: "Just who are you?! Master Dhalsim is busy..."

Rashid: "Sorry, I definitely understand. I haven't much time either."

Rashid (continued): "Well, I would be extremely appreciative if you could teach me theskill of Yoga. Shouldn't take too long. I just need you to indulge me in a single match."

Azam: "Master..."

Dhalsim: "And why is it that you seek to improve your skill?"

Rashid: "I can't say. But please, I just need to be stronger or else... Please..."

Dhalsim: "Hmm..."

Pre-Fight InteractionEdit

Dhalsim: "Understood... Let's fight."


Rashid: "Huh... I thought if I saw you fight at least once, I'd learn most, if not all of it. I suppose with Yoga there's no shortcut, eh?"

Azam: "Master."

Dhalsim: "No there isn't. Yoga isn't something you can learn in a short span of time."

Rashid: "I thought as much. Well, at least I got to fight someone extroridinary skilled as you. It was a good experience."

Rashid (continued): "One more thing, I'm sure you know many people. Have you seen this person?"

Dhalsim: "No..."

Rashid: "I see. Thank you then. Take care."

Mahesh: "Were you OK with that? To show a person like him the skills in the way of Yoga?"

Dhalsim: "You shouldn't worry. He seeks skills to do good, just as you."

Dhalsim (continued): "He may not have mastered the skills, but if he gained something from fighting me which will help him, then good will come of it."

Mahesh: "Hmm..."

Interaction 2: OroEdit

Mahesh: "Oh!"

Dhalsim: "This is what is released in tandem with prayer to the God Agni. The very basics of Yoga."

Oro: "What an odd thing you're doing."

Dhalsim: "You are...!"

Mahesh: "He... He's floating! Is that Yoga?!"

Oro: "Hehe! Does this really look like Yoga to you? Your disciple has a lot to learn."

Dhalsim: "I never thought I would encounter you at a place like this."

Oro: "Just killing time. I sensed interesting people here, so here I am."

Oro (continued): "And by the way, why would you have a disciple like him? His skill is very and he'll only become an obstacle to your own training."

Dhalsim: "I believe in him, and I want to spread the knowledge of Yoga to help and support others."

Dhalsim (continued): "The improvement of my own skills are secondary. My ultimate goal is to harmonize the universe."

Dhalsim (continued): "Even if it takes a lifetime, I believe my actions, in and of themselves, inevitably set me upon the right path."

Oro: "Haha, not to completely master the skill but instead spread the skill. I see you haven't changed at all."

Dhalsim: "Are you leaving already?"

Oro: "I'm sensing another interesting person around here. You should make me a tasty curry next time. Be well."

Mahesh: "Master Dhalsim, who was that?"

Dhalsim: "He is a long lived hermit, master of Senjutsu."

Interaction 3: R. MikaEdit


Dhalsim: "Yoga!"

Mahesh: "Huuugh, huuugh, huugaha, gaha, gaha..."

Mahesh (continued): "No, I can't..."

Dhalsim: "Impatience is muddling your mind. Calm yourself."

R. Mika: "Excuse me, can I talk to you?"

Dhalsim: "Huh?"

R. Mika: "Hello, my name is Rainbow Mika and I belong to the Iwashigahama Japan Women's Pro Wrestling! Could you teach me how to breathe fire? Like what you just did now?"

Mahesh: "Wrestling?"

R. Mika: "That's right! That skill would be perfect. If I did that in the ring... the crowd would go wild and...!"

Pre-Fight InteractionEdit

Dhalsim: "You needn't say anymore, I understand your passion. Why don't you learn it by fighting with me?"

R. Mika: "Thank you so much for your time!"

Post-Fight InteractionEdit

R. Mika: "Guess not! I'm not ready to breathe fire!"


Dhalsim: "Mika, mastering Yoga is not easy."

Dhalsim (continued): "Although you can't yet breathe fire, your passion will ignite the flame in the future. And when it does, it will ignite everyone."

R. Mika: "My passion... will ignite...!"

R. Mika (continued): "I think I... I think I learned something! Thank you! Thank you for teaching me sir!"


Mahesh: "Haaagh!"

Dhalsim: "Hmm. It was an excellent fire."

Mahesh: "B...But it wasn't as big as yours, Master Dhalsim."

Dhalsim: "The size of the flame is not what is important."

Dhalsim (continued): "You are training your mind. Skill will only be a guide. When you care for someone your mind is what will become the flame. It also becomes the power to create harmony."

Dhalsim (continued): "To help you create that harmony, I will do all that can for as long as it takes."

Mahesh: "Master Dhalsim...!"

  • "Do not let the Satsui no Hado take you over!"
