Also a big fan of the theme of lack of bodily autonomy in the Deus Ex games. In the first one, of course, Sarif replaces THREE of Jensen’s HEALTHY LIMBS with augmented prosthetics while Jensen is undergoing life-saving surgery (and fails to mention the limbs were FINE when he decided to have them replaced–you gotta dig that up by hacking a LIMB clinic computer). And then in the second game Jensen finds out he has experimental augs he never knew about, discovered after months of recovery of which his memories are hazy.
Koller asks Jensen what he thinks of it, and Jensen responds, “I’m thinking I hate being unconscious.”
I mean, ha ha he never asked for this, but really. He never asked for this.
Man, I saw some nice lineart of Adam Jensen and Faridah Malik chilling in hoodies in some Hengsha hideout (the author have headcanoned that it happened after the crash of Faridah’s craft in DXHR and Adam have dragged her to some lowly place just to chillax for a few hours) but now I can’t find it! Help?
