Christie Monteiro is the granddaughter of the Capoeira master who taught Eddy Gordo the art of Capoeira during his time in prison. While in prison, Eddy made an oath to his master to pass on the art of Capoeira to his granddaughter. Soon after The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Eddy sought after Christie and began her training...
After Eddy had trained Christie into an impressive fighter, he mysteriously disappeared, telling Christie only that he "Must seek vengeance against the enemy responsible for the death of my father". Christie, troubled by his sudden and abrupt disappearance, chases after Eddy with her only lead - The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.
In her non-canon Tekken 4 ending, we see Christie after she has defeated Heihachi Mishima. She is being congratulated by a variety of people, including a suit who gives her a trophy for her victory. Despite this however, she seems uninterested, but soon spots Eddy and shouts his name, then runs up and hugs him, smiling as the video ends.
Christie Monteiro went to the prison her grandfather was being held at, as he was to be released after a long sentence. However, prison life had been hard on him, and he had become emaciated to the point where he was barely recognizable. Upon taking her grandfather to a hospital, she was told her grandfather has been diagnosed with an incurable illness and without treatment, he only has about six months left. After hearing the announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Christie enters, hoping to win the tournament and take control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and all of its advanced Medical equipment in hopes that she may be able to save her grandfather.
In her non-canonical CG ending, we see Christie and Eddy in a hospital's waiting room, awaiting the end of a surgery. As the "Operating" light goes off, the scene changes to Eddy and Christie practicing their capoeira, when all of a sudden, someone grabs Eddy's leg. This turns out to be Christie's grandfather, and he proceeds to replace Eddy, practicing capoeira with his granddaughter.
Christie entered the previous tournament in hopes of winning the tournament to save her grandfather, but she was defeated, and returns home. Upon her arrival, she discovers that both her master and Eddy are missing. When she inquires about her grandfather at the hospital he was at she is told that he was transferred to the Mishima Zaibatsu's medical facility. In order to find her grandfather and save him, Christie enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.In her ending Christie is shown standing at a grave with a coffin that hasn't been buried yet. Her grandfather has died. Christie places both hands together and weeps for her fallen grandpa. Suddenly, Eddy Gordo arrives and stands next to her. Christie slaps him in the face asking him where he was, but then gives up and places her hands and head onto his chest as she cries. Eddy clenches his fist and throws a pinbadge to the ground, breaking it slightly. Jin Kazama's branding/tattoo is shown on the triangular shaped badge.
- A Maxim model named Hannah starred as Christie Monteiro in the Tekken Maxim Photoshoot for the Maxim magazine.
- Christie's 1st player outfits seem to be designed after the pants used in Capoeira. Regular Capoeira pants are white and have some sort of stripped rope indicating one's level; however, Christie's outfits seem to be a more glamorous version of these pants.
- A common theme for Christie's Capoeira style outfits is that of a butterfly. In Tekken 4, it can be seen hanging on the front of her pants and on her Player 2 shirt, while in Tekken 5/Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and Tekken 6, her pants are decorated with a single butterfly on each thigh and a butterfly pin holds the straps of her top together. She also can be customized to have butterfly wings on her back.
