Slayer is an elegant and powerful vampire, one of the oldest and most sophisticated characters in the Guilty Gear series. As the founder of the Assassins' Guild, Slayer has a deep connection to many of the series' key characters and events. Despite his fearsome nature, he prefers to remain a neutral party, observing the world from the shadows and intervening only when necessary.

Having grown weary of the endless conflicts and chaos, Slayer has largely retired from active involvement in the world's affairs. However, his keen interest in the evolving storylines of other characters occasionally draws him back into the fray. His relationship with his beloved wife Sharon, who shares his immortality, is a cornerstone of his existence, providing him with a rare source of joy and stability in an ever-changing world.


Slayer exudes an air of sophistication and grace, often engaging in eloquent speech and displaying impeccable manners. He possesses a deep sense of honor and prefers to avoid unnecessary violence, only fighting when he deems it absolutely necessary. His vast experience and wisdom make him a mentor-like figure to some, and his love for poetry and refined tastes highlight his cultured nature. Despite his calm demeanor, he can be a formidable opponent when provoked.


Slayer is a close-combat specialist with a unique playstyle centered around powerful strikes and evasive maneuvers. His ability to absorb damage and retaliate with devastating counters makes him a formidable opponent in close quarters. Slayer's moveset includes a variety of dashes, teleportation, and hard-hitting attacks that require precise timing and strategic planning. Players who enjoy a risk-reward playstyle and can master his unique mechanics will find Slayer to be an incredibly rewarding character.


Slayer's appearance is a blend of classic vampire aesthetics and modern sophistication. He dresses in a sharp, tailored suit, complete with a flowing cape and cravat. His silver hair, piercing red eyes, and a well-groomed mustache give him a distinguished and regal look. Slayer's overall appearance reflects his aristocratic nature and his role as a timeless, elegant vampire who stands apart from the chaos of the world around him.
