In the game's Story Mode, Dickinson witnessed how Happy Chaos, the game's antagonist, held the world leaders in the G4 Summit hostage, including President Vernon. He also led a special action force in raiding the White House to neutralize Happy Chaos and his brainwashed minions.
Also, according to Gamespot, Dickinson also appeared earlier in the background of the Neo New York Stage in Guilty Gear Xrd.
In-game, Dickinson wields a big coffin-like briefcase with an iron chain connected in it. The said case have labels installed in front it, with words such "AREA 51 UNITED STATES" and "WARNING Extra-Terrestrial DO NOT ENTER!" in them.
In the reveal trailer for the character, a bluish lanky hand was seen to appear in the case once it is open for attacks. Aside from the hand, Dickinson also attacks his opponents using the said case, a minigun, a spiked drone, and his cybernetic that can callout lasers from above.
According to Sportskeeda, Dickinson is a fan-favorite because he is a walking amalgamation of weirdest stereotypes of American law enforcement as well as conspiracy theories surrounding the country's secret military projects regarding the extra-terrestrial beings.
He is also a fantastic addition to the roster, being the second grappler in the game in which players can invest to aside from Potemkin. This is because of his heavy-hitting attacks despite of him being a slow.
