Guilty Gear
A giant walking fortress who can turn the match around with his powerful grabs.
He is a soldier from the Independent Airborne State of Zepp.

He's a proud man with a loyal heart.
His stature makes him come off as intimidating, but he's a gentle man who loves nature.
He values duty above all, and while he can tolerate his own pain, he cannot bear to see others hurt. He faces adversity head-on.
He refuses to be used as a tool to hurt others for evil.
Guilty Gear
Zepp, the "Armed Air Empire," was a military state established toward the end of the Crusades, the entirety of which was enclosed aboard a gigantic airship. The military force of Zepp, composed wholly of slave soldiers wearing anti-desertion bomb collars around their necks, was unsurpassed... the fear of the collars exploding at any given moment was motivation enough to fight. Potemkin was on of these men.

"Code 4595605381, Potemkin. We've finally found a use for you and your ridiculous body..."

"I refuse. These fists of mine were not made to kill."

"Hmph... fine. Your orders are as follows: Enter this tournament, and win. You will then wish for suitable territory for us to expand our Empire into. Do you think you can win without shedding blood...?"

"Damn you...! ...Fine, I'll do it. Gaining territory peacefully is better than an invasion that would result in countless casualties on both sides..."

"Just don't get any stupid ideas down there... we wouldn't want to strain that tiny brain of yours..."
Guilty Gear X
Potemkin is a former slave soldier of Zepp, a militaristic nation that maintains a society based on science and technology. Having taken the rest of the slave soldiers hostage, he was sentenced by his superior to enter the Tournament. During the Tournament, he learned that a coup d'etat was in progress. In the end, the coup d'etat succeeded and Zepp was freed from its dictatorship. President Gabriel, Potemkin's former instructor, summoned him for a secret mission; to protect a Gear from the bounty hunters and bring it back safely to Zepp. Though Potemkin is unable to discern the mission's true motive, he decides to trust his former master, and accepts the mission.
Guilty Gear XX
P.W.A.B. Report #9989:
Former slave to the empire of Zepp, subject was the vanguard of the Zepp revolution, and currently works for the new government. With his giant frame and mastery of Zeppian combat, his sheer battle power is comparable to that of an entire gournd-based army division. However, as an officer of Zepp, he can be easily diverted due to his loyalties towards his country. The real danger lies in his ties with Gabriel, Zepp's current president. With this in mind, he is considered to be a moderate threat.

Fun Facts
Like a tank with NOS
Potemkin's home nation of Zepp is likely named for the band Led Zeppelin, as his theme Burly Heart has a bit that's very close to the beginning of their song "Kashmir."

His move "Hammer Fall" may be named after the heavy metal band "Hammerfall."
