I don’t like Evie, at all. I find her overall controlling and snobby. I like Jacob’s sense of humor and personality. I don’t think I’ll be upset in the slightest if/when Evie dies. Plus I really don’t like how she places herself above Jacob. Even if she is the eldest twin, that doesn’t mean Jacob isn’t important. I prefer Jacob’s brutality to Evie’s stealth. Overall Jacob is just more fun to play as.
The crystal-clear Mexican waters don’t lend themselves to ambush attacks from below, so an airborne shark is not a common sight. Del Villar speculates that on the rare occasions they do breach, it’s either to shake off parasites or as a display of dominance.
