DeGrey

Jefferson DeGrey (DeGrey for short) is a hard-hitting character, a master of rhetoric, and a crusader for truth and justice. He can put his opponents in uncomfortable situations while making himself very hard to pin down using his super move, Ghost Riposte—one of the best dodges in the game.

Lore Edit

A professor of law and civil rights and long-time friend of the stone golem, Rook, DeGrey was imprisoned for crimes against Flagstone. [1]

 Though he was given a second chance by Mistress Percephone in order to complete a task. As part of that, a ghost (the blue-coloured women seen on his character card) watches over him, ensuring he fulfills his purpose.

StrategyEdit

  • Familiar Dodge: The dodge side of DeGrey's Ace returns back to his hand if the opponent attacks, blocks, or dodges, which means that he can often dodge with the same Ace several times. Much of DeGrey's strategy is about either dodging attacks, or punishing your opponent for attempting to throw you out of a dodge.
  • Pilebunker: DeGrey's Queen does 14 damage with a single card, and possibly more if he's holding less cards than his opponent (due to his innate ability). And while it's already a very powerful card on it's own, it's also a Starter, which allows him to combo from it. It's not uncommon for DeGrey to dodge an attack with his Ace, and then hit back with a Queen -> 6 -> Jack combo for 27+ damage (or Queen -> AA for 34+ damage).
  • Counterpoint: Both sides of DeGrey's 7 (Point, Counterpoint) are very slow, so even with it's ability to rotate, it will still lose to almost all attacks. You'll often play the attack side of this card when you think the opponent will try to throw your Ace.
  • High-Speed Attack: DeGrey's King is 0.2 speed, which will beat or tie with most attacks (other than Grave or Setsuki's Queen), so make a point to keep these for when you need them.

Innate's bonus damage adjusted: " ... If your opponent has more cards in hand than you, your special attacks and super attacks deal extra damage equal to the difference plus one".

New gamewide rule: Healing cannot go above max life. (This is correct flavor for fighting games, but more importantly, necessary for Yomi 2v2 mode to work.)
