Sergei Dragunov received orders from Russian Military Command to capture the organism known as the 'Devil.' In pursuit of his mission, he successfully infiltrated The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, but was unable to locate the organism.
Russia was in complete disorder with rampant civil disturbances, all believed to be caused by the covert actions of Mishima Zaibatsu operatives. Commissioned to suppress national unrest, Dragunov spent quite some time fighting his way across the country. He was eventually called back by the Russian military and ordered to infiltrate The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 to crush the Mishima Zaibatsu. Dragunov embarked once again for Japan.
