Who Is Goldlewis Dickinstein in Guilty Gear Strive

During the game's story mode, Goldlewis Dickinson is introduced once Sol Badguy arrives in the United States of America. Dickinson is a military aide close to the President and was in charge of the operation of retaking White House from Happy Chaos and his army of brainwashed security detail.

Dickinson also fought for a few moments during their retake of White House as he covered his soldiers with a massive barrier against the brainwashed security. As for his other moves, Dickinson didn't have a major fight against any of the main characters of Guilty Gear Strive.

Playstyle

As seen in the trailer, Dickinson was seen swinging his coffin and calling his alien friend inside to help him out in attacks. Meanwhile, he also uses gatling guns and even calls down an orbital laser to fight his foes. He also has a chasing animation which could be a command throw when he gets close enough to his enemy.

As a fighting game character, the trailer doesn't show any obvious hints of a character archetype he could be. Potentially, he could be an all-arounder big body character which could be a reverse of Potemkin's playstyle.
