"I'll teach you...how to fight."
Gordeau the Harvester was once a member of the Amnesia organization. One day during a war against the Bankikai, his friend Roger ends up getting turned into a fallen Void due to an unfortunate chain of events. Roger died that day at the hands of the Crimson Knight of Licht Kreis, Erika Wagner, and Gordeau, injured from the battle, could do nothing but watch it happen. After this, Gordeau leaves Amnesia to pursue revenge for his fallen friend instead. Since then, Gordeau has participated in many Hollow Nights, hoping to encounter the Crimson Knight of Licht Kreis again and avenge Roger.
Gordeau wields a scythe called the Demon Sickle "Devourer" that he can summon at will. The Scythe is very large and has a lot of reach. As a result, you'll find that Gordeau has normals, specials and partner skills that have a lot of reach and hit in wide arcs. This allows Gordeau to control a lot of ground space in neutral, making it difficult for others to approach him freely.
Although Gordeau is capable of controlling a lot of space thanks to his scythe, whiffing these scythe normals put him at a severe disadvantage because they have a lot of recovery, often leaving him open to being punished. Gordeau also doesn't move very fast. To make the most of Gordeau, you'll need to learn to judge your spacing well and optimally make use of his long reaching options.
EXS of Greed : Snatcher
Gordeau EXS gives him the unique ability to form purple claws on his right hand that he can use to rip pieces of a person's soul from them. In Under Night in Birth, this unique ability was adapted into his gameplay by allowing his Assimilation command grabs to steal GRD. However, in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle this ability allows Gordeau to steal a chunk of his opponent's Skill Gauge and add it to his own. His meter steal is static for each attack, meaning it is unaffected by the 180 frame meter-build cooldown that normally occurs after using Skill Gauge. This also makes it good at the end of long combos where normal meter build decreases.
The following moves will steal some of the opponent's Skill Gauge on hit:
- All versions of Rusty Nails (5AAAA and 6P)
- All versions of Assimilation (5BBB and 214X)
- Mortal Slide - Divest
Note: While blocking or getting hit usually grants meter, Gordeau's EXS attacks don't grant any meter on top of the meter it steals from opponents.
