“This is why I got him; because he laughs. I thought he was laughing at all my jokes… turns out it’s my fashion sense. I stand by that green sweater!”
Mark is very loyal to his clothes. I was going to go with a modern Mark Hamill and go for a Grandpa-Chic feel… but it just wasn’t going with the rest of the series. So we have a Classic Mark instead. ^_^
I know I went another predictable route but: The first time Kurt sees Jane in the series and the way he looks at her by the season 2 finale.
The reason Kurt is my favorite goes far beyond Jeller, don’t worry. I think on a really deep level it’s just Sullivan Stapleton. He managed to make Kurt so damn different from Damien Scott when he could have just been a carbon copy. But the way Kurt speaks, the way he carries himself, it’s all so different from Damien. Kurt tends to let his mouth hang open more, he sometimes mumbles. This is a man he never expected to be thrust into a Head of Office situation, he was the leader of his team, and now suddenly he’s the leader. The way Sully plays him with confidence but not quite the same confidence Mayfair had is amazing.
Kurt is, plain and simple, just a good man. He spent his life looking for his childhood best friend. He spent his life trying to make sure his father never hurt Sarah. That alone, to me, speaks to Kurt believing something darker and more sinister than Taylor simply disappearing happened, and he was terrified it would happen to his baby sister. He’s dedicated his life to helping people in the most extreme circumstances and never hesitates to try and protect the innocent. I could go on and on but tl;dr no one’s here to read these things, lol. Bottom line is, Kurt is a good man, he has flaws, he picks himself up and doesn’t give up. He’s exactly what I love in a strong lead.
Since I’m done with the game, I decided I’ll do this before I go on and do the review. There will be very brief summaries for each guy’s route and the 2 main ends, but nothing specific, just the gist of his story. That’s about as far as I’m willing to go since this game is too complicated for me to do detailed plot write-ups. This post is still very long though T_T
The characters are sorted by their country/crest. While I’m at it thought I might as well translate the character profiles from the game. Some of the terms were rather iffy to translate and I’m not 100% sure I got them right so let me know if there are any mistakes. :)
