Faust / Doctor Baldhead




Faust (originally called Dr. Baldhead) was once a good man and a great surgeon; one of the best in the world. After committing a simple mistake that cost a young female patient her life, his mind broke and he went on a murderous rampage. He was captured and sent to a dimensional prison after taking the lives of scores of innocent people using the most indescribable of means.

(GGX story) The previous tournament gave him a second lease on life, and now he has returned to his former self. Wishing to punish himself for his past, Faust resolved to take his own life. Not only would this act finally atone for his sins, but he realized it was the only way he would be able to escape the painful feelings that haunted him day and night. But just as he was about to end it all, Faust learned that the young girl's death so long ago was no accident, but rather a cold-blooded murder carried out by a third party. Finally seeing the light, he now sets out on a new journey to discover the truth behind the girl, saving as many lives as he can along the way.

What am I supposed to say about this guy? He's got a paper bag over his head and he's fighting with an oversized scalpel. lol. The brilliance of Guilty Gear is really something. ^o^ Faust is a wacky yet clever character design from the beginning... but only got crazier and crazier in the sequels. He does his job well as the original "freak" archetype of Guilty Gear... and remained as such, as plenty of other freaks have joined him over the years. Faust is probably still the freakiest of them all.

He's not going to be everyone's cup of tea... but I respect what he brings to the serious. A hilarious character in too many ways. Back in the early GGX days, I wished Arc System Works did a better job with his animations... and well, I got my wishes answered when Faust was reimagined and fleshed out in GGXrd and GG -STRIVE-. Guilty Gear just wouldn't be the same without this crazy bastard. On a side note, pro-level Faust players are fun as hell to watch! :D
