You said that Rod was 'most definitely' a romance option but than you used the word 'friend ship' as one word for the route. Does this mean his route is going to be more of a companionship route?
The key words were given out by Kooriiko as starting points for what will be explored in each route. As such ‘friendship’ does not necessarily relate to the relationship between Rod and Lucette.
As Rod’s writer, I would like to assure everyone that Rod is a romance option, with a story and circumstances that are unique to his route. Apart from that I can’t say much more because of spoilers, but please look forward to his route when the game is released!
Weiss fanart because I dig her new design. I was already done with this drawing when the trailer was released a few days after and I saw that Weiss still has her one sided ponytail (the reference I used didn’t looked like it) so just ignore that… bit.
