Before the zombie apocalypse, Negan used to be a delinquent who eventually became a high school gym teacher, focused on rooting out the weakness in his students and making them strong. After the outbreak, he ultimately became a leader of The Saviors, a group of survivors who hope to rebuild civilization eventually.
Initially, he wasn't the brutal and relentless man that he is now. Unfortunately, the arduous task of keeping a large settlement safe and controlled forced Negan to take extreme measures like torturing his own people to establish authority and order, threatening other groups of survivors to get their supplies, nothing was too far for Negan as long as he saw it as necessary.
One day he received a report about a strange group of people who managed to take out several of his men. Negan sets out to deal with the situation and manages to lure the group into a trap. However, before he could dole out the usual violent punishment, the group fought back and managed to escape. Not being one to let things off too easily, Negan decides to pursue the fighters and deal with them before they can cause any more problems.
Negan is a terrifying man. While he keeps up a seemingly cheerful expression, behind is a man capable of exceptional cruelty. Even when he doesn't resort to violence, Negan can disturb others with his morbid sense of humor. As a leader, he's nothing short of a dictator. He prefers to keep his subordinates in a tight grip and dole out punishment should they disobey. Bizarrely enough, Negan still has a nicer side, occasionally showing respect for strong and capable survivors and displaying genuine sympathy for children.
Negan is a middle-aged man with brown eyes, black hair, and a grey beard. He wears a simple outfit consisting of black boots, black pants, a black leather jacket, and a red scarf tucked inside. He always carries a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, which he called after his wife, Lucille.
Straightforward brawler, Negan feels best when close to his enemies. With a set of great pokes that can even leave him in frame advantage on block, strong stance moves, and safe normal hit launchers, Negan can efficiently oppress his opponents. His relentless offense often continues until opponents try to fight back and make a mistake, either falling for a counter hit or attacking into one of Negan's scary power crushes. Once he lands a knockdown, Negan also has access to a damaging okizeme, as he's able to beat on opponents while they're down or perform an unblockable setup.
Negan's major weakness lies in several of his very punishable key moves and his pressure falling apart against more cautious and patient players who can react to one of his best low moves, duckable strings, and okizeme setups.
