How Talim joined the Tourney
In the Village of the Wind Deity located in the Philippines, there lived a small tribe of people who could control the winds. Talim was the granddaughter of the village's elder, Kalana, and daughter of its shaman, Sanput. Due to turmoil caused by the influences of the Spanish and Portuguese culture, she was reared to be its last priestess, otherwise known as Babaylan. The dark day that the "Evil Seed" pervaded through the sky, Talim felt the winds, and an evil aura that devoured everything in its path surged into her body, causing her to lose consciousness for days. Luckily for Talim, she regained her consiousness just in time for the Smash Bros. Tourney.
Classic Mode Ending Movie
Talim and Captain America were thrown back by each other's blows. "The power of the wind cannot be beaten by anyone." Talim dared, but Captain America told her, "Sure about that?" Suddenly, Talim was sinking into quicksand. She looked back then said, "I'm sinking!" A man came and grabbed her hand, "Hey, there! If I save you, will you come on a date with me!" This man was Geum Cheol-Hwan. When he was just about to get her out, Talim dared into his greedy face, "I would rather die, than be the property of a greedy suitor." then she slapped his hand and sunk into the quicksand. A day later, Steve Rogers held a funeral for Talim. Various Filipinos were in attendance. "We are gathered today to pay our respect to a good girl. She has shown us that the wind can bring light into the world. And I woud also like to say, of all girls I ever encountered. Her's was the most human. We therefore commit her body to the deep." The crew dumped Talim's coffin into the sea. "Honors, fire!" A man yelled and the 21 gun salute was given.
