So, it's definitely not Balrog... Mysterious character in Street Fighter 5's story mode trailer and Air Force stage is actually Guile's boss

When Street Fighter 5's story mode expansion trailer first hit, we caught a glimpse of a strange character that some believe might be Balrog. We saw this character reemerge in the background of the new Air Force Base remake stage this past month.


This morning, we learned the true identity of this character. The CFN Portal column posted a bio detailing who this character is, and thanks to the translation of our very own MajinTenshinhan, we learn that his name is Byron Tailor.

Taylor is a general in the Air Force and is actually Guile's boss, and naturally, he hates Shadaloo.
