Hi there!! I'm new to this blog, and after scrolling through the "biotalk" tag I was veryimpressed by your posts! damn they're super clever and amazing ahhhh. so, could you please share your opinion on such supportive characters from Bioshock 1 as doctor Steinman or Sander Cohen? most of your biotalks are about Bioshock 2, and it is absolutely okay if you don't want to talk about 1st one~ anyway, thank you so much for this blog and for your attention! lots of love**

Okay anon! I’ll see what I can do for ya.

Thoughts on Sander Cohen: 

He’s a jerk. A big ol’ jerk, but he’s a interesting character notwithstanding. He doesn’t have much backstory, which is disappointing, but I can give some headcanons i have about him, instead:

1. He’s from a big family. He never got along well with his siblings, though, and his relationship with his parents was always strained due to his… eccentricities. He didn’t feel too guilty leaving his family, because he was always the black sheep. 

2. He’s Jewish by birth, but nonreligious. It has a lot to do with his family history and his parents, and how he was raised. He was raised under Conservative Judaism, which lent itself to a lot of tension in the household. 

3. Is on the short side. 5′5½.

4. Liked to get manicures. French, round tip.

5. My man loves his pomade. When Rapture was good, it was part of how he smelled- pomade, cologne, and oil paint.

6. Would rather die then admit it, but really enjoyed ‘trashy’ media- pop music, and crummy romance films. 

On J.S Steinman

1. Had the whitest teeth imaginable. Gave Chip Skylark a run for his money.

2. Was secretly a smoker- never told anyone about it though, because he was publicly anti-smoking (because of the wrinkles and teeth staining). Also why he teeth were so clean: he overcompensated. 

3. Always mentioned his medical knowledge to impress people. Was Mister Popular in med school. 

4. Enjoyed dime-store mystery novels. As a child, his family followed Reform Judaism.

5. Is slightly shorter then Dr. Lamb. 5′8. 

6. Was actually pretty good friends with Yi Suchong. They would drink and talk shit about people.
