Lazar Stefanenko is a video game character of the Dragon Fighter series, first appearing as hidden character in Dragon Fighter II Hyper Fighting. He is a former Interpol detective who, because of a leg injury, has been declared unfit to continue in this profession.
During early develpoment of Dragon Fighter II Turbo, there was the intention to bring back Noriyuki . Avoiding to have too many Japanese characters in the roster, Capcom created Lazar, an occidental aikidoka.
Lazar is rather serious when he's relating to evil people. But when relating to good students, Lazar starts saying things that many people find silly. He is a traditionalist and a fighter to the core, making it sometimes impossible for him to relate with present days.
Despite he has been dismissed from Interpol due to a leg injury, he continue to investigate on crimes on his own.
