Book Two character profiles: Hanna and Enu
 
Hello all,

With Book One behind us, the team is now focusing on Book Two – in parallel with the
ongoing bug fixes and optimisations – and while we don't have a teaser trailer or
release date for our second episode quite yet, we do have some new information to
share with you today.
 
Leading up to Book Two, we will be releasing character profiles for both new and old
characters, revealing – but never spoiling! – more details about their history,
personality and role in the story.
 
(As always, if you're trying to stay completely spoiler free, you may want to skip these profiles.)
 
First up is Hanna Roth, a character only briefly mentioned in Book One, who plays a
much bigger role in Book Two.

The second character is Enu; one of the rebels that Kian meets as he joins the
magical resistance in Marcuria:

Look out for more character profiles soon!
 
Next week, we're releasing the third patch – version 1.1.2 – for the game, fixing some
remaining memory related bugs and optimisations. You can read more about that
patch here
.
 
Together with next week's patch we will also reveal a new trailer, containing the first
teaser footage from Book Two...along with the title of our second episode. When that
happens, you'll be the first to know!
 
As always, we encourage everyone to take the discussion to our official forums. How
do you feel about the new characters? What roles do you think they'll be playing in the story?
 
Thanks for reading!
 
Team RTG

Hey, Zoë, if that girl has a Watilla battery, just kill her for it. ;)

I legitimately didn't even notice until you pointed it out. I honestly saw the link to the post on Twitter completely by luck, flipped over to Kickstarter, and posted it before I even got my email. And then read it after I posted it. >>; 

 

Quite liking Hanna, though. 

 

P.S. In before the "Enu isn't new." comments. :P

 

P.P.S. My dreams of a Kian / Crow / Enu / Blind Bob conversation are looking more and more likely.

Erika, I hope you don't mind that I ninja-edited in some line breaks in the update. The reason for me doing it in the first place, was that I thought some short paragraphs looked sort of "off" on these forums, since there's so much more width in the forum posts than on Kickstarter. So normally I add line breaks at the same place as in the Kickstarter update (unless there's just a word on the next line and it looks stupid).

 

Thanks for posting it so quickly! And I hope you don't take this as a complaint, it's just me trying to apologize for ninja-editing ;)

No offence taken. My first update post. :P I did edit the paragraph breaks because they copied weirdly, but I didn't really notice the line break thing. I'll know for next time. :)

So Hanna is (almost) definitely not one of the Six.

 

I think I like Enu.

Yeah, the formatting bits doesn't always copy over very well. It's the same when the updates have headings with larger text etc. So I often have to go back and forth between the code/non-code part of the editor, and click preview a few times before posting. I also don't always remember which text sizes I've used on headings etc on previous updates, so I've had to open old ones and look at the text of those to remember. Just helpful tips, since it's nice to keep it in the same formatting (but I'm super grateful that posting these updates aren't all on me now :D)

 

Oh, and I'll edit in the Update Title as well ;)

Nice to hear Essex is still going strong. :P Did anyone else notice the strange marking on Hanna's head, by her right eyebrow? What could that be?

Looks like a scar or implant of some sort...? Hm. 

 

Wonder if it has any relation to her hatred of the Dream Machines.

Almost certainly some kind of implant, and almost certainly not related to the Dreamachine.

 

Mira has almost the same markings.

You mean the triangle-y thing on Mira's cheek or did I miss something else?

 

I'm curious to see what Hanna's looks like on her character model. Kind of hard to tell the details in the concept art. But yeah, probably an implant. Whether or not it's important is another story.

 

Also, I didn't say it was related to the Dream Machine specifically. Just wondered if it was related to her hatred of it. Depending on what it is or why it's there. She seems to have a scar on her eyebrow, too. If she has some rough background with someone from Wati, that could be tied up in things. 

 

Totally just wild and baseless speculation on my part, though.

My immediate headcannon for the eyebrow scar was "pulled out eyebrow piercing". But that's maybe not significant enough :P

P.P.S. My dreams of a Kian / Crow / Enu / Blind Bob conversation are looking more and more likely.

the way you said it seems as if enu is somebody everybody should know by now... who's this enu? i dont know her until a minute ago.

did i miss anything while playing DFC TLJ?

admittedly my attention span isn't the best.. there's that
