The company focusses on building state of the art androids, and it is Lee's vision that robots will one day serve humanity and help humans out with everyday chores, making the world a better place. At present, most of the robots Violet Systems make, however, appear to be Combots built for fighting. The company is based out of The Bahamas and also has at least one research facility in Brazil. The company has considerable wealth, as shown by its ability to fund massive external projects, detonate its own facilities without financial concern, and its numerous assets, such as spy satellites and helicopters.
Lee entered the Fourth King of Iron Fist Tournament in order to show off a new model of Combot that Violet Systems had built, hoping to launch his company onto the world stage with a martial demonstration of his robot's success. Canonically, Lee was defeated by Kazuya before he got to show off Combot. Non-canonically, Lee is shown fighting his Combot, and after some initial problems with the robot's stability, its martial ability is successfully demonstrated.
Violet Systems became a business stock partner with G Corporation, after Lee bought shares in G-Corporation. Lee hacked into G-Corp and discovered that Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu were interested in research happening there and had raided their laboratories. Lee bought shares in the company whilst Kazuya was still a secret research project being conducted by the company. It is known that once Kazuya took over G-Corporation as CEO, Lee stayed in close contact with Julia Chang, a G-Corp researcher, who passed Lee and Violet Systems information on G-Corporation. She was broken out of G-Corp after she was captured spying against them and remains acquaintance to Violet Systems. Lee asked Lars to break her out, and Lee subsequently felt indebted to his half-brother, agreeing to fix Alisa when she was later broken, and marking the beginning of a closer working relationship between Yggdrasil and Violet Systems. Lee used his shareholder status in order to investigate G Corporation and in order to get preferential treatment at the sixth Iron Fist Tournament so that he could get close to Kazuya.
Violet Systems has been funding Lars's rebel army, Yggdrasil, since they first rebelled against the Mishima Zaibatsu and Tekken Force. Lee provided them with facilities in Northern Europe where they initially consolidated power. Violet Systems also provides a number of facilities to serve as a secret hideouts for Lars and Yggdrasil. In the events of Tekken 7, Violet Systems is revealed to have a medical facility within the robotics company itself where Jin is recovering from his comatose state following Azazel's defeat. At one point, Lee detonated a Violet Systems building after leading Tekken Force into a trap there. The company also possesses at least one spy satellite, from which Lee, Lars, Alisa, and the journalist were able to see the final showdown between Kazuya and Heihachi at the volcanic pit. Lee is an accomplished robotics engineer within his own company, as shown when he personally repairs Alisa, a much more advanced android than those currently built by his company.
Violet Systems features as a stage in Scenario Campaign mode in Tekken 6. Lee Chaolan is fought here and clearing this stage and defeating Lee will unlock him in Scenario Campaign's Arena mode. There are many robots in the Violet Systems that are reminiscent of Combot, the humanoid robot Lee/Violet built-in Tekken 4. These robots also use various fighting styles like Combot did.
In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, the Fight Lab mini game takes place in Violet Systems. Players can learn how to play the game here, mimicking the in story purpose of the lab as a place for testing combots. An ending movie on completing the Fight Lab (which is also Violet's ending movie) shows Lee the Super Combot DX being used against Heihachi, Kazuya, and Jin.
Violet Systems is also a stage in Tekken 7. The stage shows a large fusion generator and advanced robotics equipment.

"I am impressed by the number of humanoid robots programmed as guards here. The speech and behavioral patterns of the president, Mr. Lee Chaolan are also amusing. Seemingly fascinated by my exterior model, he was too.. how do you say?.. touchy-feely, thus activating my self-preservation mode".
