Callman is a bald man with a black mustache. He is large and powerfully built, especially in his upper body. He wears a red bow tie and a white dress shirt with rolled-up sleeves and metal armbands. He also wears brown and white dress shoes and blue-gray slacks and fist guards (which appear blue in promotional artwork).
Callman was a bouncer who worked at a club on the backstreets of Metro City. When Haggar, Guy, Lucia, and Dean pursued the Skull Cross Gang into the club, Callman tried to stop them from causing a scene, but was beaten into submission by Lucia.
Callman is slow but powerful, though he can sometimes surprise his enemies by leaping toward or behind them. He fights with punches and a grab and kick combo, as well as a shoulder tackle that he often uses after recovering from a knockdown. His moves are damaging, but relatively easy to avoid.
- Depending on the path players choose to follow through Callman's stage, they may encounter him on the street instead of inside the club.
