Slayer (スレイヤー, Sureiyā) is a playable character in the Guilty Gear franchise, who made his first appearance in Guilty Gear XX. He is the first, and so far, only vampire in the Guilty Gear series. A charming, refined and somewhat erudite man, Slayer exudes class, but that is not to say he doesn't enjoy combat. Although he is technically not a part of the on-goings of the Guilty Gear world, he often offers advice to other characters, and has grown somewhat attached to their world.
