If you like your fighting game characters filled with freaky animations and insane levels of malice, then Painwheel is right up your alley.
The latest character trailer for Skullgirls shows off this result of bizarre genetic experimentation, and her attack style is as brutal as that giant weapon attached to her spine. Along with being described as an expert aerial combatant, Painwheel has an impressive array of air combos and jump cancels that allow her to keep the combo counter rising.
Along with this video, courtesy of Gamespot (our youtube channel is a bit on the fritz at the moment), a short character bio is also available, giving a bit of insight to her twisted origins. Check out both after the jump.
Once a normal schoolgirl named Carol, Painwheel was kidnapped by Valentine and delivered to the Anti-Skullgirls Labs' secretive Lab Zero. There she was implanted with the synthetic Buer Drive and Gae Bolga parasites and infused with experimental Skullgirl blood, transforming her into the monster she is today. Violent and unstable as a result of these experiments, as a precaution she's mentally controlled by Lab Zero's powerful psychic director, Brain Drain.
Fueled by rage, she draws her power from her pain and fury. Despite that, the soul of that scared young girl still lives on inside this monstrous body, desperately fighting off the onslaught of voices that would control her.
