Godfree (ゴドフリー, Godofurī?) was one of the 10,000 players who got trapped in the death game, «Sword Art Online». He was an easy going character and the Commander of the Vanguard of the «Knights of the Blood» (KoB).
Godfree was a huge man with thick, shaggy orange-brown curls and, according to Kirito, he looked like an axe wielder. He wore a white and red KoB uniform with a white cape, a metal chestplate, metal shoulderplates and bracers and brown, leather gauntlets.
Godfree was an easy going person and a person who disliked conflicts among comrades, such as when he brought Kuradeel and Kirito together in his party just for them to bury the hatchet. However, Godfree is also a kind of person who is slow to understand the situation at hand, like when he thought that Kuradeel's treachery was some form of training exercise.
In August 2024, Godfree participated in the coalition against Laughing Coffin. With the assistance of two other members of the Knights of the Blood, Godfree captured a Laughing Coffin player attempting to flee the crusaders. Declaring that the orange player would live to feel regret for his misdeeds, Godfree used a corridor crystal to send the Laughing Coffin member to the Black Iron Palace. As they had heard the orange player yelling at his comrades to escape, the three knights began searching for remaining Laughing Coffin members. Moments later, they found Lux and Gwen nearby. Since Lux had a green cursor and Gwen an orange one, they assumed the latter had taken the former prisoner, and thus moved to apprehend Gwen while protecting the so-called hostage. Unaware of Lux's affiliation, Godfree questioned her on her association with Laughing Coffin. Taking her hesitant silence as a denial, he and the other crusaders resumed their pursuit of Gwen.
After Kirito joined the Knights of the Blood on October 23, 2024, Godfree took it upon himself to test the capabilities of the new recruit by going on a training mission with him and two other members to go through the Labyrinth of the 55th Floor all the way up to the living area of the 56th floor. At the meeting place, he introduced one of the party members, Kuradeel, to Kirito, knowing that the two had a fight and wanting them to bury the hatchet. Before marching out, he took the crystals of all members to make the training as realistic as possible. Right before entering the dungeon, Godfree ordered having a break and passed on the food and water portions to all the members of the party. Having drunk the water, everyone aside from Kuradeel, who had poisoned it, became paralyzed. Godfree attempted to use an antidote crystal, under the advice of Kirito, but was stopped by Kuradeel kicking the crystal out of his hand. Godfree was subsequently killed by Kuradeel, while still not knowing what happening even as his body shattered into polygons.
