The CFN Portal continues to add concept art depicting how characters fit into Street Fighter V’s world, recently turning the focus to Laura Matsuda’s family tree. In addition to her younger brother Sean (who we’ve already met through Street Fighter III, and Street Fighter V’s story mode), we are introduced to her grandfather Kinjiro from Japan, her parents Yuichiro and Brenda, and her older brother Fabio. We also learn she has two cousins, Enzo and Manuela, who practice capoeira.
Kinjiro; Yuichiro; Brenda
Fabio; Laura; Sean
Speaking of capoeira–Elena makes an appearance in additional new artwork that shifts away from the Matsuda family to focus on some well-known fighters from Street Fighter III–and also some side characters, namely Dudley’s loyal butler Ortho K. Gotch and Ibuki’s ninjutsu classmate Sarai.

Last but not least, we get to meet Texas-born Byron Taylor: Guile’s commanding officer, seen overlooking the fight in the background of Street Fighter V’s Air Force Base stage.
Japanese-speakers can check out the full character profiles in the CFN Portal Shadaloo Activity Report.
