Biography

Concept (Pullum, Rosaria and Naeemah)

During the development of Dragon Fighter II Hyper Fighting, Capcom wanted to create a female character coming from the Middle East with magical powers, so the first Naeemah's concepts were created for this upgrade as a young Egyptian fortune teller wielding a crystal ball during fight. Her overall appearance was a likely reference to Cleopatra. When was necessary defining in a concrete way the new part of cast for this upgrade, Naeemah's concept was been set aside resembling in design too much Kotakage, newcomer in Dragon Fighter II Turbo who reached a high popularity, so was considered useless adding a look-alike fighter.

Developers, continuing to consider Naeemah's concept quite interesting, recycled it for Dragon Fighter III creating two new characters: Rosaria, Italian fortune teller, and Pullum, young woman coming from the Middle East (precisely from Saudi Arabia).

Rosaria was inspired by JoJo's Bizarre Adventure character Lisa Lisa, Rosarias's outfit is almost identical to Lisa Lisa's and both share a similar fighting style that consits of channeling energy into their scarfs.

Pullum is a homage both for Rouge, from Capcom's Power Stone series, and Luca, from Capcom's Star Gladiator games, two popular and very appreciated characters at the time.

For Dragon Fighter IV, developers wanted to create a demonic-like character, like Akuma and Garuda, but with a female gender, for these reasons the draft of Naeemah has been recovered undergoing some changing: she is a young Egyptian fortune teller any more but an ultra centenary Egyptian vampiress.

History

The daughter of a wealthy Saudi Arabian man, Pullum seeks revenge for her grandfather against Shadaloo after he was found in a hypnotic state, having read a book with the word "Shadaloo" on the cover. She vows revenge, and hires Azam as a bodyguard.
