BIO:

Potemkin is a former slave soldier of Zepp, a militaristic nation that maintains a society based on science and technology. Having taken the rest of the slave soldiers hostage, he was sentenced by his superior to enter the tournament. During the tournament, he learned that a coup d'etat was in progress. In the end, the coup d'etat succeeded and Zepp was freed from its dictatorship. President Gabriel, Potemkin's former instructor, summoned him for a secret mission; to protect a Gear from the bounty hunters and bring it back safely to Zepp. Though Potemkin is unable to discern the mission's true motive, he decides to trust his former master, and accepts the mission.

For a big guy design, he's definitely a unique looking character in the fighting game universe... at least he's not another freakin' wrestler. lol. Besides having laughably stubby legs and being completely out of proportion (and being inspired by Juggernaut), Potemkin is fairly cool and has a considerable amount of unique moves and mannerisms. However, he has quite a few awkward/goofy looking priority moves, which for some reason or another, seem to be part of his design. His personality is also kinda hard to read, and sometimes he seems more awkward and "dumb" than anything else. 

Honestly, I enjoy beating him up with other characters... lol. I never was a big fan of using him, but he is rather fun to fight against. On the flipside, I really like his redesign in Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-. He really needed a redesign if you ask me, and ASW delivered.
