Chrstie Monteiro the granddaughter of Eddy Gordo's master (see Ho Chi Myong) and Eddy's student. She has replaced Eddy as the prominently-featured capoeira fighter in the Tekken series. In Tekken 4, she entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to search for Eddy, and in Tekken 5, she entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 because she wished to use the Mishima Zaibatsu's cutting-edge technology to save her grandfather. As of Tekken 6, Christie enters the 6th Tournament to find Eddy and her grandfather, who have mysteriously gone missing.
Christie has quite a substantial fanbase. Some fans consider her to be an excellent addition to the cast, adding sex appeal to the series, as well as light-heartedness to largely-somber cast. However, this is also a major criticism of the character. Christie's scarce clothing and flirtatious mannerisms give many the impression that Christie was added merely as fan service to the cast. At the same time, Christie's minimal part in the story (which, to date, has only consisted of searching for Eddy and trying to save her grandfather) does not interest many fans, especially when it's considered that Eddy's story of revenge against Kazuya Mishima was interrupted by Christie's introduction.
A further criticism is inherited from Eddy directly--many fans despise Tekken's interpretation of capoeira, as used by both Eddy and Christie. A common criticism is that it rewards button mashing players too richly.
