Tekken 3 (1998):

Prologue

Searching For Michelle… (Wandering Fighter…) Julia studies archeology in Michelle Chang’s tribal lands. As a baby, Julia was deserted in the ruins of ancient Native American settlements, where Michelle found her. Michelle rescued Julia and brought her up with love. Julia loved Michelle and her adopted tribe and trained with Michelle to protect her beloved homeland.


When Julia was 18, stories of sudden disappearances of famous martial artists all over the world began to reach the tribe. The tribe knew the cause, which was contained in the tribal legends…the legend of the God of Fighting. People in the tribe feared that Michelle’s pendant, the key to Native American sacred treasure, had something to do with the disappearances.

With apprehension spreading through the tribe, Michelle left for Japan to ask Heihachi why he had sought to take the pendant during the second tournament. Michelle hoped to learn about the origin of the God of Fighting’s power. Michelle did not return. Julia suspected Heihachi and now seeks him out to discover the truth.
Ending 
(Unofficial Synopsis) Julia is in the Aztec Temple (originally Heihachi’s stage) looking for her mother, Michelle. When she finds Michelle, Julia is told that the release of Ogre was all a part of Heihachi’s schemes. Angry, Julia is ready to get revenge on Heihachi. Michelle tells her not to, since she was taught the Martial Art to protect nature, rather than to destroy it. Julia and Michelle return to Arizona, and live peacefully.

Tekken 4 (2002):

Story

Prologue 
(In-Game Text) Julia was a college student studying archeology. One day, she discovered that her native homeland was in danger of being covered by an encroaching desert; this was brought on by today’s rapidly changing global ecosystem. Julia wanted to save her home, and she began her research on ecosystem restoration. Julia joined an advanced genetic research group led by Professor T that studied the biological mechanism of reforestation. Professor T’s research grant came almost exclusively from G Corporation. In fact, G Corporation’s supercomputers located at their high security research center were being used for the research. All their research data was stored on their file servers as well. Julia was absorbed in her daily research, waiting for the day when her research on ecosystem restoration would be complete. When the research was completed, she would save her home. Julia learned from Professor T that their research was on hold indefinitely. The Mishima Zaibatsu attacked G Corporation’s high security research center and stole all research data from her project. Julia didn’t know a thing about G Corporation’s secret research projects nor did she care about them. Yet she knew that she had to retrieve her research data from the Mishima Zaibatsu in order to save her home from becoming a desert in a few years time. Julia searched the net to gather information regarding the Mishima Zaibatsu. Her eyes lit up when she saw a web page announcing The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.’Epilogue (In-Game Text)Julia won the Tournament and took over Mishima Zaibatsu. She gained access to not only her lost research material, but to all of Mishima Zaibatsu’s cutting edge technology, including G Corporation's research data. Julia's hope for reforestation grew…
Ending
 
(Unofficial Synopsis) Julia is working on one of the Zaibatsu computers on her ‘Genocell’ program when she comes across the “Devil-Human Integration Project”. Doctor Abel then comes out of the shadows and begins to explain that her ‘Genocell’ program was the key to completing the “Devil-Human” project, and then asks her to join them. Julia, disgusted at this, prepares to delete the entire program. Abel points a gun at her, telling her that she will be destroying the future of mankind. Julia states that the project is the destruction of mankind, since such horrible things should not exist. Julia proceeds to deleting the project, even though it means the discontinuation of the forest’s rejuvenation. Abel fires a shot; luckily, Julia flips away in time and the shot misses completely. The scene shifts to a sun-scorched forest area. Julia is standing overhead on a hill. She claims: One day… I will reforest this land. I swear it. A bird soars through the sky (similar to Michelle Chang's Tekken 2 ending) and the scene ends.

Attached is an announcement of The King Of Iron Fist Tournament 5. In order to fulfill her hopes for forest rejuvenation, Julia decides to enter the tournament.
Interludes (Unofficial Synopsis)
Stage 4 GanryuGanryu is saying, “Uh-oh! So, in order to get the Forest Rejuvenation Data I will need to defeat my dear Julia…oh, but if I lose to Julia here and if she wins the tournament, that’s good as well…but there’s no guarantee that Julia will win…Ohhhh… What should I do?” Julia is shown tapping her foot, waiting for the fight, later on into Ganryu’s talking. Julia says, “Sir, could you stop babbling so we can get this over with?” Ganryu replies, “My dear Julia, your wish is my command.” Julia says, “O…kay.” After Julia wins, Ganryu lowers himself to the ground, starts crying, and says, “Ju…Julia! I’m sorry! I was too weak…” Ganryu starts pushing his index fingers together while his thumbs are extended. Then, he starts moving the tips of his thumbs downwards, as if pushing buttons, while his index fingers are still touching. Julia says, “I’ve…gotta go.” Julia walks away.
Final Stage Jinpachi Mishima: Julia points at Jinpachi Mishima (in his “Devil” form) and says, “You! Hand over the Forest Rejuvenation Data right now!” Jinpachi replies, “What are you talking about? Get lost!” Julia replies, “Not a chance. I’ll just take it from you by force!” Julia clenches her left hand into a fist. After Julia wins, Jinpachi dissolves into dust while screaming and moving around, writhing in pain. Julia puts her right hand up to keep the dust away from her. Julia finds the Forest Rejuvenation Data on the ground. Julia picks it up and walks away.

After a little stretch, Julia goes into a room full of jars. As she walks past one, she notices that a small sprout has grown in it. Filled with a new hope, Julia clutches the jar and imagines herself in the same forest from her dreams.

She was headed back to Arizona to meet with a party who had agreed to assist in the realization of her reforestation plans. Waiting for her there was a prominent Arizona land owner, an old woman who claimed to have the ability to hear the voice of spirits. With the help of the old woman, the reforestation plans were on track to be realized. However, when Julia got up to leave, the old woman made an ominous prediction. “Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima must not be allowed to clash. If they confront each other, a source of great evil will be resurrected and unleashed on the Earth”. Julia was skeptical of the old lady’s prediction.
