Guilty Gear Plot:
Guilty Gear follows ten combatants to take part in the “Second Sacred Order Tournament”. Civilization has just recovered from a decade of war against bio-organic weapons made by man called “Gears”. A Gear, Testament, has put together a plan to revive Justice and destroy humanity. The Union of Nations put together a tournament to fight combatants who can take on Testament and Justice. The winner is promised anything they desire.
The fighters go through the tournament and slowly reveal the motive behind the tournament. After the combatant defeats Testament, they help Justice’s resurrection by becoming the sacrifice. After defeating Justice, an uneasy peace is restored.
Following the Canon, Sol Badguy is the tournament’s winner but every character’s respective ending can be achieved by playing through the game.

Her foster parents hid her but she was captured and abused. When she escaped, the government issued a bounty for her death.
Bridget – Bridget is a boy who was raised as a girl. The reason for this was that he was born of twins of the same gender which was believed to be bad luck so his parents brought him up as a girl.

He wields a yo-yo and a mechanical teddy bear named Roger.
