Lizardman is officially a Soul Chronicle NPC
Yeah. At first I was just expecting a CaS style, then... there's the Aeon design that you specifically can't make in character creation. And there's like four weapon models for the handaxes in the base game. There's SC1/2 lizardman fans that would appreciate a similar version of him returning, myself included, so if it's just there but UNPLAYABLE that's such a stupid waste of assets. Especially since they already have the precedent for clones on the base roster, Inferno being a far more egregious example.Maybe they didn't complete work on Lizardman, but cobbled together what they had, used Sophitia's moves to fill in the rest and used it in the game purely for NPC representation (so Lizardman wasn't doing crotch-to-face grabs in the story). Perhaps he'll be finished and released--in a more distinctive form--as DLC?
I know folks who don't think Lizardman is DLC worthy would have a fit, but for me it'd be far better than not having him at all, or selling him as a near-clone of Sophitia.
Feels like wishful thinking though. Wishful thinking about a game that hasn't been terribly kind to such notions.
If Cassandra and/or Setsuka get confirmed as DLC, where will they fit in Soul Chronicle though?
And I'll be certain that if Aeon does have his own Soul Chronicle, it'll probably be set between the time Fygul Cestemus caught him and the time he and Astaroth joined Nightmare.You can look to Talim for ideas on that. Some inconsequential SCII prequel stuff, most likely.
Although that's if DLC characters do get Soul Chronicles. I don't know that Tira having one is proof enough, given that she was clearly developed alongside the base roster.
