The Dead or Alive character roster has expanded with the announcement that DOATEC leader Helena Douglas and former DOATEC scientist Lisa Hamilton are returning to the franchise.

Helena Douglas, also known as "Fortune's Heiress," is the current leader of the Dead or Alive Tournament Executive Committee (DOATEC) and the daughter of Fame Douglas, founder of DOATEC. As a famous opera singer and Pi Gua Quan martial artist, Helena has a quick yet graceful fighting style that allows her to pull off smooth windmill-like combinations.

Lisa Hamilton, also known as "La Mariposa," is a former scientist for DOATEC and an accomplished luchadora. Lisa's unpredictable lucha libre style combines moves she learned while training with friend and fellow DOA competitor Tina Armstrong during high school and her own blend of high-flying kicks.

Dead or Alive 5 will be released September 28 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
