Bio: Gilgamesh wandered around in the Rift until he found this world. To his astonishment, he found many warriors from the two worlds that shared his love of battle. Seeing an opportunity, Gilgamesh ran headfirst without knowing what was going on.
Gilgamesh can be considered a rushdown and zoning kind of character. With tricky to predict moves, a large health bar, and a bizarre fighting style, Gilgamesh is a force to be reckoned with.
