So, based on this story, if I had to imagine the character of Ophelia Price I would imagine her with a Southern or possibly Midwestern American English accent. Even if we suppose that she would have migrated out west from somewhere in the Northeast or the East Coast she would at least have an American English accent, and I would argue that if she had spent any long amount of time in, say, Texas that she would have slowly picked up the local accent.
So why in Blood 2 did they decide to give her a British-sounding accent? Of all possible accents that seems like the most unlikely based on the backstory. Also, isn't the Blood 2 description of a stone-cold sniper kind of at odds with the emotionality attributed to Ophilia in the original Blood backstory?
Anyway, you guys are clearly the experts when it comes to the Blood universe, so I look forward to any thoughts and comments you may have.
not to mention that initial idea of blood 2 was that game starts right after caleb finished resurrecting the 3 dead chosen and then the adventure starts. so i guess caleb snagged some bodies did some magic sh1t and voila.
they later changed their mind it seems.
As for loosing an accent, my own father is from England and has been in the US for over 30 years now and he still sounds like a Brit. Granted when we go back to visit family the locals will often ask where he's from, so his accent has evidently changed, but not enough to single him out as being an American.
Gilla: I think the quote is "In a body he no longer knows" If you've ever been laid up in bed , unconscious and not moving for a week or so, you muscles will begin to atrophy. Trying to move after something like that happening and your body really does feel foreign. I don't think it means that he's in a different body. As for Gabriel, yeah, that's just odd.
Addendum 20081104: I should probably add, the act of Homesteading, was an effort promoted by the US government to help populate the scarcely populated western territories beginning in the mid 1800's. Basically it was giving away free land to anyone that had a mind to cultivate it. This attracted the down and out of the east coast as well as many immigrants from Europe.
Not to be a dick, but...

Whew! I pooped a little when Gila said that...DustyStyx wrote:Gila: I think the quote is "In a body he no longer knows"
Probably (especially in B2), but you never know. Besides, I bet you aren't familiar with American accents...Ghoste wrote:Well, The truth is the Developers NEVER CARED about what kind of accent their CHAR gets, they worried about getting money and ignored all that minor stuff.
Stephen Weyte performed deliciously in B1. YEAH I FU**IN' SAID DELICIOUSLY. SO?
This World is earth and humands and stuff
The OtherWorld is where The one that binds comes from and all his demonic beast's, minions, ect, ect,
And after years of service on earth Caleb and the other 'Chosen' are for all intents and purposes Killed, and buried.
And the first Cut scene shows us the Chosen inside the other world, then it all go's off and Caleb is flung down through the worlds' back into his body,
That as we are told has 'refused to rot' .
He heads off on his rampage, visiting the Earth bound homes of the Demon world generals to collect the Essances of his fellow chosen and finally reaches The halls of epiphany (a place sort of between worlds) and the rest is history.
But then comes along Blood 2 and they TOTALLY ignore this brilliant story, ressurect the Chosen WITHOUT any explanation, invent another 'BadGuy' Gideon with no connection to anything in B1 and hire a bunch of Z grade voice actors for the poor Chosen.
But if we have to live with the B2 choices then my explanation would be that, Although the original host is best (and an automatic fall back) if the body (like Gabriel's was) is compleatly destroyed (his was eaten, then blown up) A new Host body would have to be found, thus we get Gabriella.

Gideon is the Cabal, in a desperate state to keep their power when there supernatural control has been lost by Caleb's meddleing. Seems connected to me.
