Juri wears a small, purple breastplate, supported with black straps that fastened to form a spider pattern on her back. She wears long, baggy, off-white colored trousers and purple tights, and long, fingerless gloves. Her fingernails and toenails are painted bright pink. She has dark hair styled into two horn-like bangs at the top of her head, which appear to be fastened with pink ribbon.
Juri is a villainous "blood knight" who fights for the thrill of the battle like Ryu (though the reasoning behind her drive is more malicious) and loves inflicting pain on her opponents. She has some femme fatale elements, as she makes provocative and suggestive remarks toward her enemies, and also fools and betrays those she was working with for her own sinister plans.
She possesses a strong, sensual figure, but is cruel, cunning and a sadistic, unforgiving fighter with a strong urge to cause havoc and destruction. She is a cold and calculating villain, callous to others, and treats her allies as pawns. Despite her dark personality, she will give her opponents a chance to run away and doesn't kill kids. This was seen in the Super Street Fighter 4 movie, when she killed everyone else but left a young boy alive.
Her personality, particularly against men, can be compared to a female spider. She likes to prey on others - when she is done with them she either brutally beats or kills them, as seen with Seth. This and her threat to M. Bison during her rival cutscene, ("I'll just eat you up. Bones and all.) may refer to the fact that at the end of a mating session, a female spider will attempt to eat the head of the male spider. This may also be a reference to her own appearance and nickname.
In the S.I.N. laboratory, Juri undergoes an operation on her eye. She gains the Feng Shui Engine, which gives her incredible ki, speed and power. It is revealed that Juri was a prominent practitioner of Taekwondo when she was 15. Her father was a lawyer in charge of prosecuting organized crime operations. In this capacity, Shadoloo was his next target, causing her family to be kidnapped by that very organization. During the ordeal, Juri lost her parents and gravely wounded her left eye, Which caused her to turn her into the Woman she is today.
