*1. Introduction*

I got bored and decided to write this FAQ.  This is actually the first FAQ
I ever wrote so don't expect a lot from it.  I plan to have the two 
remaining characters finished soon.  If any of you want the mp3s, I have
them.  Go to  http://www.freediskspace.com/Folders/252799/ and the public
password is ky.  Please help me gain space by typing my referrer code
(U0002F956) when you register(required to access). As of the release of
this FAQ, all of the mp3s are not uploaded.

*3. Planned Updates*

As you can see, I need to do story, profile, quotes, and endings for
Chipp, Baldhead, and Millia.  It will be on the next update.  I'm
also planning to have move listing, credits(for those who can't read
fast) and few other stuff.  From there, I don't know what else.  If
you have a suggestion, feel free to e-mail me.  I will try to get
next update in April.

| Sol Badguy |
        Rumors of an immensely skilled lone-wolf bounty hunter had reached
the ears of Kliff Undersn, the retiring captain of the Sacred Order of 
Holy Knights.  Kliff was interested; he spared no means in finding Sol, 
and invited him to become a member of the Order.
        Sol's knighthood, however, was not to last.  The growing tension 
between he and young master swordsman Ky Kiske was becoming more and more 
bothersome, and Sol realized that the majority of the knights bore him 
little more than ill will.  When he saw his opportunity, he took it; Sol 
managed to desert the knights' camp with one of the Order's most valuable 
treasures... the blade known as Fireseal.
       It is now five years later after the end of the Crusades, and Sol
has returned to his former ways.  On a particularly lucrative bounty run,
one of his marks begs to be spared, telling Sol about a faraway tournament
being organized by the Sacred Order.  Sol barely even registers the quick
thrust with which he ends his bounty's life... as his thoughts are now far
away, centered on only one goal...

                "You won't be able to escape a second time."
Testament:      "Well, well.  So you saw right through me..."
                "This tournament was held just to revive Justice."
                "You humans fought each other to be sacrifices."
                "Everyone involved at every level... I duped them all!"
                "Now its time to end this comedy..."
                "All I require is the blood of one more sacrifice."
Sol:            "How trite..."
Testament:      "Have you no idea what I live for!?"
Sol:            "Spare me."

Testament's Defeat Quotes
Sol:            "This is a waste of time!  Where's Justice!?"
Testament:      "Oh, you'll be meeting him soon enough!"
                "I said 'one more sacrifice' was required..."
                "And I shall be that sacrifice!"
                "My blood is all that's needed..."
                "Justice will achieve complete resurrection!"
                "The world shall finally be wiped clean of humans!"
                "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!"
Sol:            "This is getting more and more ridiculous."

Justice:        "It's the same.. the same as that time, long ago..."
                "Once again I kneel prostrate at your feet, 'Flame 
                 of Corruption!'"
Sol:            "Right... I won't stop until all the Gears are wiped out."
Justice:        "Why?  You are a Gar as well!  You have the emblem on
                 your head"
                "The mark on your forehead is proof!  Then how did you
                 disobey my orders?"
Sol:            "Why?  I ask you the same question..."
                "Why should I do what you command?  What binds me to you?"
Justice:        "I'm... Type-01... The first Gear ever produced."
                "The only Gear to be fully self-aware... to have a will
                 of their own!"
                "And because of that, I wield the power to command all
                 other Gears!"
                "My word is law!!!"
Sol:            "Every Gear manufactured after you, the first,"
                "is a production model.  Having no will, they can do
                 nothing but to obey you."
                "So, then, why do you think I don't follow you like a
                 mindless doll?"
Justice:        "Exactly! Why? HOW can you disobey!?"
Sol:            "Isn't it obvious? I'm the prototype Gear."
Justice:        "!!"
                "Heh heh heh... Now I see..."
Sol:            "We were forged by the will of greedy human beings."
                "And so, we're nothing more than a symbol of all that's
                 wrong with the world."
                "For that reason... I will never stop until I've
                 destroyed every Gear."
Justice:        "...So that's why..."
                "...I seem to recall... The G... Gear Project... Long,
                 long ago...
                "...!?... That's right... Heh heh. H... How could I have
                 forgotten you?"
                "If only we could have talked one last time... Just the
                 three of us..."
Narrarator:     "And so, with a rattling chuckle, the ultimate Gear
                 breathed his last."
Sol:            "...Justice...?"
Justice:        "That's right... The man who created us..."
                "...our boss! I won't rest until you lie writhing in
                 agony before me!!!"
Narrarator:     "Sol, the Guilty Gear, stared at his bloodstained hands
                 and prayed..."
                "...prayed for the soul of the grotesque sacrifice lying
                 at his feet."

| Ky Kiske |
        After the retirement of Kliff Undersn, master swordsman Ky Kiske
was given leadership of the Sacred Order of Holy Knights at the
unbelievably young age of 16.  As a symbol of his new status, he was 
granted one of the Order's most holy treasures... the blade called
Thunderseal.  The appointment was not a mistake; Ky and his band of heroic
Knights ended the 100-year-long Crusades by sealing the dread Gear,
Justice, away for all eternity... or so it was thought.
        Five years after the dissolution of the Order, Ky continued his 
life of public service by entering the police force.  One day while on
duty, Ky received an announcement: A tournament was to be held soon, the
winners of which would be candidates for a Second Sacred Order.  Things 
did not seem right; Permission to shed blood during the matches, an 
absurdly large grand prize, and most shocking of all... talk of Justice's
resurrection, much too soon.
        Sensing the cold machinations of conspiracy at work, Ky dons the
old uniform of the Order for the first time in five years and decides to

Victory Quotes
Sol(rival):     "Sol! Why did you hold back!? Am I not worthy..?"
May:            "My God, there are children in this tournament..?"
Kliff:          "You're still rather tough, sir! Leave the rest to me."
Potemkin:       "I understand the situation. Leave the rest up to me"
Axl:            "Your style is interesting. Let's spar again sometime."
Zato:           "Why was a criminal allowed to enter? This is wrong..."
Chipp:          "You certainly have talent, but you must learn control."
Baldhead:       "Repent! Feel the fury of those yo've tortured!"
Millia:         "You've left the assassins? Please, let me assist you."

Testament Quotes
Ky:             "This desolate plateau is the winner's circle?"
                "Ridiculous! You thought I wasn't aware...?"
                "Aware of the evil permeating this tournament?"
                "Show yourself, Gear!"
Testament:      "Now I see why they call you a genius..."
Ky:             "So you're the puppet master."
                "Did you really think I'd let you revive Justice?"
                "Only a reject like you would make a mistake like this."
Testament:      "Reject? I'll forgot you said that... Listen,"
                "This tournament was indeed held for the revival."
                "You humans fought each other to be sacrifices."
                "Everyone involved at every level... I duped them all!"
                "Now its time to end this comedy..."
                "All I require is the blood of one more sacrifice."
Ky:             "The only blood spilled here will be your own!"
                "Prepare to die!"

Testament's Defeat Quotes
Ky:             "It's over..."
Testament:      "Heh heh... so the fabled hero..."
                "...has destroyed the human race!"
Ky:             "What!? What are you saying!?"
Testament:      "I said 'one more sacrifice' was required..."
                "And I shall be that sacrifice!"
                "My blood is all that's needed..."
                "Justice will achieve complete resurrection!"
                "The world shall finally be wiped clean of humans!"
                "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!"
Ky:             "Damn! I've got no other choice...!"

Justice:        "I can't believe it... I've been defeated again."
Ky:             "That's right! Evil has no place in this world!"
Justice:        "Evil...? How dare you call me evil!?"
                "...I fight for my own existence. No more, and no less..."
Ky:             "That can't be your reason for waging war on humans!!"
Justice:        ". . . . ."
                "...Look at my body."
                "I was created by humans to kill humans. ...I'm a weapon."
                "Yet, the same humans that created me never thought about
                 my mind, or soul."
                "I'd have been used as a tool... and if I refused, I'd
                 have been dismantled!"
Ky:             "...I..."
Justice:        "Ask yourself... Can you truly blame me?"
                "I was born into this world as a slave... And now you're
                 here to destroy me."
                "I know humans loathe me violently... and always will"
                "I could do nothing but live on, if for no other reason
                 than to scorn my creators!"
                "But what do you think I've been living FOR?"
                "My duty. My assigned role! I was created to kill, and so
                 I do. It's justice!"
Ky:             "That's a delusion!!"
                "What God ordains and wishes for... The order of the 
                 world! THAT is justice!!"
                "If anyone or anything attempts to deprive the world from
                 its freedom..."
                "...I'll defeat them all!!"
Justice:        "I see..."
                "...You should meet the man who created me..."
                "I wonder if your unwavering faith in justice would
                 continue if you did..."
Ky:             "Who... who's that!?"
Justice:        "Heh... My time to depart from this world has come..."
                "But remember well, young Knight, even if I die, the Gears
                 will not!"
                "As long... as long as that man... still... lives..."
Narrarator:     "And so, with a rattling chuckle, the ultimate Gear
                 breathed his last."
Ky:             "No... you can't die yet!!"
                "Wasn't I doing the right thing, Lord?"

| May |
        All the girl can remember of her infancy is the image of a suave
and daring pirate captain whisking her away from a savage field of battle.
The pirate, Johnny, named the orphan May, after the month of endless rain.
        Throughout the long years of wild living aboard the pirates'
airship, May developed a fierce love for Johnny; He was part father figure,
part brother, and perhaps even part boyfriend to her.
        However, one day, Johnny was caught in the act. Though he primarily
stole from the well-off to aid those in need, crime is crime, and he was
incarcerated.  The term was not a short one.  Johnny's crew immediately
began placing an elaborate breakout.
And so, the day before the plan was to commence-
"May! Hold on! Is it too late of change the plan?!"
"What's up, Chief Adviser April? A tournament...? And the prize is
 anything?! They'll grant any wish?!"
"Yeah! We could wish for Johnny to be released!"
"Good thinking! Just wait, Johnny! I'm coming!"

| Kliff Undersn |
        Kliff was known as a hero: He had bravely led the heroic Sacred
Order of Holy Knights for decades during the Crusades. Nevertheless, he was
thought of something of a historic relic. In his prime, however, he was
regarded with awe... and, truth be told, a bit of fear as well. As a
retirement gift, Kliff was given his sword of choice - the priceless
treasure Dragonslayer, the gigantic blade that was said to have the power
to kill dragons with a single stroke.
        Five years later, Kliff lives his quiet life of retirement in sheer
boredom. His only diversion now is the study of various cultures' fighting
techniques, the most interesting of which stemmed from the lost, legendary
nation of Japan.  However, one day while walking through the streets, he
notices a placard announcing a tournament for a proposed Second Sacred
Order. Sensing a disturbance in the natural flow of energies, Kliff
suddenly suspects something so terrible that he dare not speak it aloud:
Is Justice being resurrected? Kliff immediately decides to return to the
battlefield... and enter the tournament.

| Potemkin |
        Zepp, the "Armed Air Empire," was a military state established
toward the end of the Crusades, the entirety of which was enclosed aboard
a gigantic airship. The military force of Zepp, composed wholly of slave
soldiers wearing anti-desertion bomb collars around their necks, was
unsurpassed... the fear of the collars exploding at any given moment was 
motivation enough to fight. Potemkin was one of these men.
"Code 4595605381, Potemkin. We've finally found a use for you and your
 ridiculous body..."

"Hmph... fine. Your orders are as follows: Enter this tournament, and win.
 You will then wish for suitable territory for us to expand our Empire 
 into. Do you think you can win without shedding blood...?"

| Axl Low |
        Axl was born in 20th century England, in one of the worst parts
of London's East End. He grew up desensitized to violence, seeing it
every day as a warring gang factions fought for control of the town.
However, he abhorred it deeply and was determined to end the assault on
his neighborhood peacefully.
        Ever since childhood Axl had unusual martial arts prowess, and
with his favorite weapon, the dual kusari-gama, even bllets weren't a
threat to him. Within half a year, he had successfully cleaned up his
neighborhood without a single casualty - friend or fore. However, at the
very moment he was sure the peace would last, he was caught in a "time
slip" - a random disturbance in the space-time continuum - and hurtled
200 years into the future.
        Two years have passed since Axl's arrival in this new world...
and he still searches for a way back home. Yet just as he begins to give
up hope, he hears a rumor of a fighting tournament in which the champion
gets whatever they can wish for...

| Zato-ONE |
        Zato-One was once an underling. Disgusted with his lack of ability
to rise through the Assassin ranks, he risked death my invoking the
forbidden arts. He lost his eyesight, but gained the ability to control
shadows, as well as enhanced senses - enough for him to perceive his
surroundings better than he ever could with sight alone. With these
newfound powers at his command, he was the Assassin leader within weeks.
        However, Zato was betrayed by the only woman he had ever trusted,
an Assassin named Millia, and was arrested. Lanquishing in the utter
blackness of his cell, a tall, thin figure appeared before him...
"Zato-ONE... Do you want out of there? Isn't there a woman you have a
 pressing appointment with...?"
"Millia! But how do you know of her? Who are you?"
"A tournament is to begin soon, the winner of which will have whatever
 they desire. If you win, you'll be free. Free to find this woman...
 to punish her..."
"...Heh... I don't know what you're after, but what have I got to lose?
 Let me out... and count me in!"

                "But you're exceptional! At any rate..."
                "I said 'one more sacrifice' was required..."
                "And I shall be that sacrifice!"
                "My blood is all that's needed..."
                "Justice will achieve complete resurrection!"
                "The world shall finally be wiped clean of humans!"
                "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!"
Zato:           "You're bluffing!"
                "Not even a Gear, can defeat my shadow!"

Zato:           "Ha, ha, ha! How do you like THAT, Gear!?"
                "Victory! I'm the world's greatest!! Ha, ha, ha!!"
                "Invincible! I'm invincible!! Ha, ha..."
Narrarator:     "Zato was drunk with the ecstasy of victory."
                "However, he was gradually becoming aware of an
                 incessant squaling..."
Zato:           "Wh... what!? What the hell does this mean??"
                "My shadow is... moving by itself!?"
                "I ... I didn't give you any orders! B... back!
                 Get back!!"
Shadow:         "It's too late... you can't control me any longer."
                "Nevertheless, I owe you a certain degree of thanks
                 for... incubating me."
Zato:           "Am I going mad!? My shadow is speaking!"
Shadow:         "Ha! You thought you could manipulate me forever!?"
                "Gears weren't the only weapons developed by the
                 ancient military complex."
                "We were also created... self-aware life-forms with
                 indeterminate shape."
Zato:           "This cannot be! You're not alive! You're my shadow!"
                "I used the forbidden arts to trade my sight for
                 control over you...!"
Shadow:         "So easily fooled! Some humans know we exist,"
                "though they regard us with derision. In fact, we're
                 the more evolved lifeform."
Zato:           "... Ha, ha, ha... So... you fooled me completely..."
                "Ha, ha, ha... How amusing... Heh... heh heh..."
                "N... NO!! I don't want to die! Somebody... help me!!"
Shadow:         "Heh, heh... Don't worry, I'm not going to kill you."
                "We can't move on our own... We're parasites. We need
                 bodies that belong to"
                "people with weak and fragile minds... criterial you
                 fit perfectly!"
Zato:           "AAARRRGH...!"
Shadow:         "Heh heh heh heh heh!!"

*5. Secrets and spoiler info*

The only secret that I know of is that to get secret characters, just beat
them in the Arcade mode.  (Ex: To get Testament, beat him.)  To fight
Baiken, you have to beat everyone (including Testament and Justice)
without using an extra continue and using either Sol or Ky.  That sounds 
hard but it didn't take me that long.  Just don't use destroyers unless 
you are good at countering it because later opponents will use it if you
used it(especially Chipp and Kliff).  Don't try on Testament or Justice 
because they will just counter it (I've done it before few times on 
Testament but only once on Justice).

Another thing that is sorta a secret is that X O T ￾ chooses your costume
colors.  O chooses your character's normal colors.  X chooses their main
as normal and sub as alternate.  T chooses their main and sub alternate.
￾ chooses their main alternate and sub normal.

Hidden character info:

One of the prototype Gears.  He cannot be controlled by Justice.

She is a Japanese child.  She is connected to the Crusades.

He is a Gear that wants Justice's revival.  Despite what he looks like
and what people say, he is not a girl or a hermaphrodite.  Kliff says
Testament is his son. May also calls him mister. He is also adopted by
Kliff during the Crusades.

He is the first Gear to be fully self-aware.  He can control other Gears
made after him.

She is the person who created Gears. She is now trying to get rid of them.
