Template:CharacterInfoboxSulia Gaudeamus (スーリア・ゴーダマス) is an anime-only character introduced in Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture. She is the young co-heroine who serves as Terry's second love interest (after the late Lily McGuire) and is 17 years old.
Sulia is one of the last remaining descendants of Gaudeamus, a powerful conqueror who was said to even be feared by Alexander the Great. Gaudeamus was eventually killed by Alexander's generals and his armor was infused with Mars, the god of war. Mars continued to destroy the countryside until four wanderers defeated him. His armor was buried at different parts of the globe to prevent the deity from being resurrected.
Sometime before the story begins, Sulia's father and his partner discovered a pendant. Using this relic, they were able to locate a gauntlet of Mars' armor. However, the partner murdered her father to steal the credit. Since her mother died when she was young, Sulia and her twin brother, Laocorn Gaudeamus, lost their remaining guardian. Laocorn couldn't bear the injustice of the murder and confronted his father's partner. After a near-death struggle, Laocorn used the gauntlet to avenge his father's death and began to search for the other pieces. Sulia took the pendant and went to look for a strong fighter to help stop her brother. Hearing that Terry defeated Krauser, she begins the movie searching for him. Her brother sent a group of masked minions to prevent her success.
Once she finds him, he agrees and she is pleased to know that Andy, Mai, and Joe also want to assist. During their search for the pieces of armor, Sulia gradually falls for Terry. When he is injured after a bout with Jamin, she uses her healing powers to help him recover. After he hears about her past concerning her family, Terry promises to protect her from further harm. She also befriends her other helpers as their search deepens.
Despite their best efforts, Laocorn completes the Mars armor and is granted omnipotent powers. Not wanting her friends to face anymore danger, she stabs herself in the chest with a sharp crystal shard. Laocorn felt the blow since the twins were linked psychologically and physically to one another. She pleads Terry to punch her brother's chest and he reluctantly complies. This is enough to weaken the armor's hold on Laocorn and reverts him back to his senses. Before she dies, Sulia expresses her gratitude to her friends and shares a parting kiss with Terry. While facing the resurrected Gaudeamus, Terry hears her voice calling his name and he is able to deliver the decisive blow.
In the Days of Memories series, Joe sends Terry a letter with old photos of her and Lily McGuire, which makes him exclaim their names aloud. When asked about it, he solemnly says that it's an old story.
An intelligent and timid bookworm, she is polite and earnest to the people she meets, and this earns her a few admirers. Although she is filled with grief to see her twin brother increasingly corrupted by the Armor of Mars, Sulia is determined to bring him back to his old self. She admires Terry greatly for his kindness and generosity. As she dies, she tells him poignantly that she was happy to have known him.
- Healing - thanks to her Gaudeamus blood, she can create a red healing aura. Her powers only work when her skin makes contact with the injury.
- Psychic Link - Sulia shares a mysterious psychological and physical link with her twin. Their bond became stronger as he collected more pieces of armor.
