Firebrand is a type of gargoyle known as a Red Arremer. He will stand up to any threat posed to his home, the Demon Village, without any fear. Firebrand is considered to be an elite warrior among the Red Arremers, gaining him hero status among his peers.
For more information, feel free to look at these sites:
Firebrand was easily one of the most underrated, unexpected (to those that didn’t follow the mega hype train thread) characters in the game. The cause of much rage for certain capcom characters not getting in. He is arguably incredibly strong. Lots of mixup rush down options, some fireball options, a assistant summoning super and much more.
Just a couple videos of him. Unfortunately, we haven’t broke down all of the stream into character specific videos to show the new characters.
Discuss! I think he looks like a lot of fun to play and has so many options.
EDIT: http://www.justin.tv/marquezsf/videos, you should be able to find some gameplay stuff here. There was one guy beasting with him.
