The new Street Fighter 5 character is Kolin or Helen. She was introduced to us through a video trailer by Capcom. Kolin came from Street Fighter 3 as an NPC and then as an undercover agent named Helen for Street Fighter 5.

Kolin’s backstory from Capcom Unity:

After working in the shadows for Gill and the secret Illuminati organization, Kolin makes her Street Fighter 5 debut. First appearing in Street Fighter 3, Kolin works behind the scenes in order to fulfill the prophecy of Miraha and stop any who dare stand in Gill’s way. She is typically calm and collected, but can suddenly fly into a rage when anybody threatens Gill and his plans. Spoiler alert she resurrects Nash and uses him as a pawn too, showing she will do anything to achieve her goals.

Kolin is sort of an ice queen her V-Skill is called the Inside Slash, where she can easily deflect and counter attacks. Her V-Trigger is called Diamond Dust where she can release a path of sharp icicles across the floor putting her enemy in a frozen state. Kolin’s Critical Art is called Frost Tower, dashing straight through the opponent with icy hands and when the attack connects, large icicles will come up from the ground with the enemy stuck in it then the ice shatters letting the enemy fall to the ground.

Kolin’s move details:

Kolin excels in the Russian Martial Art of Systema, utilizing the opponent’s momentum against them and executing various slash-like attacks and knife hand strikes. Gill has bestowed upon her the power of ice, allowing her to augment her fight style with frigid blasts of deadly icicles. She is often heard speaking condescendingly towards her opponents, knowing they don’t stand a chance before her, let alone Gill. Where did her hatred of Shadaloo come from and how did she originally became involved with Gill?

Kolin will be accessible by February 28 as part of the Street Fighter 5 Season 2 Character Pass. Is Kolin a character you look forward to playing? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
