Godwin is the chief of public maintenance for Neo Domino City and the leader of Yliaster a group that started with the ancient Andes people and today governs all things controlling society. He claims to want to summon the Crimson Dragon to bring peace to the world though some express suspicion of his goals. For this he takes Jack in as his proteg and uses the Fortune Cup to find the Signers. Godwin is the technical definition of the antihero: one who carries out a just cause through any means necessary. He molded Neo Domino City into its current hierarchal society in which Satellite residents are considered as scum. He is not above sacrificing them if necessary. He also makes sure to maintain total control of the Fortune Cup such as when he arranges a consolation duel to reveal Luka as a Signer after discovering that Lua was substituting for her in the tournament. All this though is to awaken the powers of the Signers to prepare them for their upcoming fate.
