Natr1x’s Top Ten Favorite Characters:
8: GLaDOS, Portal:
“I think we can put our differences behind us… for science… you monster.”
Number 8 on the list. Finally I have time to write it. Sorry for taking so long but I have been a little busy. Now back to GLaDOS. Who doesn’t like GLaDOS. I mean seriously. Okay I will go into a little more depth.
If you are reading this on the internet then I assume that you know who GLaDOS is. But if you haven’t played the portal games you might not know that much about her. She is very much a spoof on the classic computer AI run wild character. A horror scenario seen in numerous sci-fi stories with the most famous one probably being HAL from Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The thought that computers or robots might someday turn against us is probably one of the older ones in science fiction. But this is also why I really like GLaDOS. Because even if at first glance she may seem like one of those characters she is fundamentally very different. While the standard computer gone haywire scenario is usually a protest at the way we as a society is becoming more machine like. Where the cold calculating computers usually represent this efficiency before emotion mindset taken to the extreme. And that is where GLaDOS is different. Because even if she tries to act as if she is cold and efficient you notice quite quickly that she is not. Instead she has very clear emotions. She feels fear, anger and holds grudges. All of which she constantly tries to hide by playing the calculating computer role.
What is great about this is that not only does it give her a lot more depth, but it also makes the whole setup for the game so much more believable. The meaningless tests turn from some convoluted scheme to a simple revenge. There is no logical point in having Shell complete all those pointless tasks. There is no usable data that can be gained from it. But it makes perfect sense if it’s a revenge. Vengeance for what she was put through by the humans that developed her. Who had her restarted and configured at their whim. Constantly trying to control her by messing with her mind. Who had her put through to her equally meaningless and pointless tasks to monitor their progress with her.
All of my yes.
a beautiful day in sweden
OMG, where is it, exactly?

Natr1x’s Top Ten Favorite Characters:
9: Ashley Williams, The Evil Dead Series:
"This is my boomstick!"
Number nine on my list we have Ash from Evil Dead. If you have not seen the Evil Dead series then you definitely should. Especially the second one. But if you want to continue reading anyway then here’s basically what they are about. The first movie is a very typical low budget horror flick about some kids who decide to go on a vacation in a cabin in the woods. It turns out about as well as you would think. Even if the movie is more comedic now because of the poor production value it was a surprise hit when it got released. Which is why they got the budget to make the second one. And that’s where it really gets hilarious. Instead of making a direct sequel they reworked the first one into some sort of over the top parody. And it is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Probably the reason that I like Ash so much in the second movie, and yes that is where I think he is at his best, is probably because Ashley is a jerk. Which is a contrast to most other horror movie protagonists. And I don’t mean that in that he is an unintentional over the top jerk because those actually swarm the horror genre. No he is a believable jerk and he is very much aware of it. He is the kind of guy who’s not going to lift a finger more than he has to. But if push comes to shove and it turns out he has to lift that finger, then he won’t hesitate. And this is what makes him such a refreshing character. Instead of whining, fighting moral quarrels or playing the hero that rushes headlong in to save others, he just does what needs to be done, and not a thing more than that. And in the end. After all the shit he has to go through. You somehow feel that he has earned the right to being a jerk.
It also helps that he is played by Bruce Campbell who while maybe not being the best actor still does a pretty much perfect job portraying Ash’s spiraling decent into madness over the course of the second movie. If insanity had a face. Then that face would look calm and collected next to Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead 2. The picture above should speak for itself.
This is kinda old, derp.
I like to think, they used to train together sometimes.
(Equius would only defense, considering strength, I guess. I sympathize with the idea of Nepeta being strong, even after all her gender, but compare with Equius, she’s still just a young girl.)
Frankly, everyone is a young girl against Equius strength
asd;jfojiwaefjijsdfo omg omg omg omg omg omg omg
This is too cute!
ooh I like this very much
oh my goodness thats adorable

10: Rosalind and Robert Lutece, Bioshock Infinite:
Ok, so I have been wanting to do a list with my favorite fictional characters for a while now, so here goes. The characters can be from any form of media but most of them are going to be from movies and tv series. I hope you will enjoy my list. I bet if you are on tumblr then yours is similar.
First of is the Lutece twins from Bioshock Infinite. I know it’s technically two characters but then again they are also technically the same so screw it. I have always enjoyed mysterious characters. Those who seem to not be bound by normal rules and simply do as they please. Like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland. There are a number of characters like that in fiction. Characters that seem to be in complete control but still chose to remain as spectators. People that you never truly know what side they are on, characters that just comes and goes as they please. I bet there is a name for this type of character but I do not know it.
I have no doubt that the Lutece twins were heavily inspired by the G-man from half-life but I think they come of a lot better than him. Actually I think they come of better than most of these types of characters and that is mainly because there are two of them. And how excellent their chemistry is. Unfortunately these types of characters can never really be anything more than support. You cannot build a story completely around them because if they were to step into the spotlight they would lose their mystery. And that is also why they do not make it higher on my list. Because for all the fun they are they are very much gimmicks. And if you were to flesh them out then they would lose those gimmicks that made them great in the first place. Sure I have no doubt that it would be possible to give them some good character development. In fact some of the characters later down this list are characters who start out very similar to the Luteces. But this is never really done in Bioshock so I’ll guess I’ll have to leave it to fan fiction.
All in all they are still great characters and I personally would have played through Infinite even if it was only for them. Although if you plan to do the same then I suggest the difficulty to easy and just go for the story. Because the actual gameplay in that game is horrendously boring.
