God Eater Burst
A God Eater veteran at the age of only 18. Being so taciturn, he hates interacting with others. He is believed to have a much larger strength capacity than the other team members. Son of Johannes and Aisha Gauche.
It is revealed in the game that he is one of the first God Eaters, if not the first. This is due to his status as a test subject for the P73 version of Bias Factor, administered before he was born. This gives him semi-unstable abilities not seen within other Gods Eaters, such as an incredibly high God Arc compatibility rate. He shares a bond with Shio, as he considers himself as a monster, which gives him a counterpart in Shio, one of the few things he feels he has something in common with. After he devours her his God Arc turned white because of the special bond they had.
