Asuka R. Kreuz (飛鳥＝Ｒ＝クロイツ, Asuka R. Kuroitsu), typically referred to as That Man and occasionally The Man, is a prominent character who was originally the central antagonist in the Guilty Gear universe, though he takes on a more supportive role during the events of Guilty Gear Xrd. He is the creator of the Gears and a sought-out target by most of the Guilty Gear cast. He is also knowledgeable in most of the events taking place in the series' continuity, dating all the way back to the Crusades, although other information is currently unknown. He has three servants: Raven, I-No, and Jack-O' Valentine, who frequently act on his behalf while he remains behind the scenes. The true extent of his power is unclear, but evidence suggests that he is one of the strongest characters in the franchise.
