Okay, Taupy is cool. A cute mascot wearing a pirate patch and with a voice that sounds like he smokes a carton of cigarettes. Honestly, I didn't see that coming. Uber-masculinity meets cuteness. Seriously too much to deal with! Morte - interesting. Rather interesting that the game immediately pairs you off with a wanted criminal in game. She wants to take out the world because she's sick of the problems and pain that people have done to it. Sort of like an uber vegan and a military thing at the same time. The way she holds her blade, reminds me of a batleth, the Klingon weapon of choice. Weird, but...yeah. Kyrie - an emo in the making. I have the quip that gives him higher defense ("chicken liver"), and it makes me rather annoyed every time his voice goes off. ("It's...probably my fault.") I dunno, I don't see him as a viable character - but at least he's not one of the save the world because he's just that goody two shoes. It takes a lot to get him off his butt and actually save the world. I'm also wondering why he has a very blatant crush on Miss Destruction. Also wondering where he got that power displayed in the opening tutorial...? Lady Ri'ah - dunno. Classic case of sexual tension used in a funny way. (Especially funny when she says..."You have feelings...you'd get hurt.") She's the classic mystery character who knows too much about the situation. And why does every game have to feature a literal dragon based bloodline? Huh? (Hehehe...just thought of a weird joke - she's a dragon lady - someone extremely desirable (the maid outfit and the cuteness), but unattainable...) Felixeous Rex - he and Lady Ri'ah both know something. I'm actually playing Sands, not for the bad characterizations - but for the story. I want to know why how Kyrie will react to Morte showing him the worse of both worlds.
