The language isnt great but the thing that bothered me more was that they gave her the mans model. As far as I could tell she was the only woman who got it despite one woman being described as having a large frame. I mentioned it to a (cis)friend and my friend said “well they wouldn’t have hrt in that sort of time period” and ofc i responded “they have these capsules where you hold them over your head and glow blue and heal your wounds…”. Its not exactly a series thats going for “historical” accuracy
At least she doesnt seem to have a trait that affects her actions.
Valkyria has done kinda weird things with lgbt characters before. Jann was a very stereotypical gay character but was also presented as one of the more important non-core characters and the game clearly wanted you to like him. Dallas has a “Man Hater” trait which is obv completely unnecessary for a lesbian character to have.
Oh after googling a bit more it seems that the japanese VA is more clearly a dude which kinda muddies it more(source is gamefaqs tho so grain of salt). I thought her English voice was perfectly fine. Seems the English version may be smoothing out some issues with the way they handled her character in the original material and she may originally have been more of a crossdresser. Thats frustrating to me since a considerable portion of crossdressing (""“trap”"" barf) characters in japan appear to be trans in intent, appearance, and pronouns yet are held back because the creators refusal to give their desires to them. Luka (Steins;Gate), Naoto (Persona 4)(which yes its slightly more complicated than that), Kyuubei (Gintama), even characters who are long accepted examples like Birdo and Poison aren’t treated consistently
I may have to wait for the full english bio then to see if they salvaged her at least okayish before considering buying the game. I thought she was mostly pretty cool despite the issues since she’s a pacifist who joined the war to combat racism but i guess i’ll see how much the other stuff drags her down :\
