Due to a traumatic loss, Baiken seeks revenge, making her sole goal to take down That Man. She’s an impulsive and short-tempered individual but has a soft spot for Anji Mito.

Delilah is the little girl pictured above, and Bedman? is the towering bedframe of death that she is sitting on top of that will go to great lengths to protect her.

His design consists of a four-pronged deep black crown, a bedframe, and several spiked wheels that it uses to carve its opponent to shreds with. Bedman? also has lots of wear and tear on it now, with its right eye showcasing deep cracks.

Little is known about Bedman or Delilah, but Delilah does have a distinct look. She has short black hair and an orange arrow that points upward on her front bangs.

19 Bridget

Bridget in Guilty Gear Strive

Like Axl Low, Bridget is one of the few characters in the series born in England. She’s a bounty hunter known by many throughout the world but only decided to become one to earn enough money to survive and raise money for her village and parents.

In most cases, however, Bridget is exceptionally kind, generous, and compassionate and would much rather become friends with her opponent instead of fighting them.

This is seen throughout the series, as May, Potemkin, and Dizzy have all become good friends with Bridget, which further extends into Strive with Goldlewis and Ky offering her advice and comfort, helping her find her true self.

In past titles, Bridget’s attire was comparable to a catholic nun, with Guilty Gear Strive altering it quite a bit. She now wears a white sweater with a black rope tied around it, which she has over top of a long black shirt that extends well past her waist.

She also wears a blue and white hoodie on top of her sweater, which calls back to the nun-like design of past titles. The hoodie has crosses near its base and sleeves but has the Androgyne (⚨) symbol on its hood instead of the male symbol it previously had (♂).

Her enormous handcuff around her waist also returns, but it now has a chain attached to it. She also has blue and white shoes and white socks that compliment her hoodie nicely. Bridget also has blonde hair and bright, emerald green eyes.

When it comes to combat, Bridget wields an oversized yo-yo that has the wheel of a revolver built into it, allowing her to turn her expert yo-yo skills into a lethal weapon.

In addition to her yo-yo, Bridget also has a large mechanical bear named Roger that she uses quite effectively in battle, especially when paired with her trusty yo-yo.

  • Despite knowing Bridget was born on October 26, alongside her unnamed twin brother, the year was unfortunately never revealed, leaving her age a mystery.

As a result, Jack-O’ has a “split personality” of sorts, one of a calm and steadfast woman and the other of a cheerful child. In terms of appearance, Jack-O’ Valentine has a five-point halo similar to Happy Chaos, except hers is cracked.

It’s also hard for Ramlethal to grasp concepts such as “liking or disliking” something or what’s “right or wrong.” However, like all Valentines, Ramlethal eventually learns those things and grows into her own.
