In the case of both Hilde and Dampierre I say good riddance to bad rubbish, imo.
As for the general idea of whether he will be in SC5? No idea. If project Soul wishes the distance themselves from the previous team; I say yes.
SC:BD was pretty much a trainwreck in my eyes; and I would love to see no part of it make it's way into SC5.
(also, yes, this probably does belong in the Dampierre subforum, so I'll move it)
aww come on now do be so rash, I think he was a cool character. He was a player and a badass. Just because u got a good mustach dnt mean ur old he had to been in his late 30's plus didnt he have a young daugter or did he? we will never know cuz he's a con artist. I say keep him!!!
