“beware, all you disastrous bisexuals,” tweeted @mollygos. “meet Karlach”. Attached is a quote from Larian writer Sarah Baylus that says: “[Karlach would] she rolled up on a Harley with shades and a cigar between her teeth blaring Sabbath – a diesel-infused dynamo with a heart of gold. She seeks justice for the oppressed, camaraderie and revenge on the bastard who sold her to hell.”
Karlach is the protagonist, which means you can play as her… but then you can’t romance her, and PlayStation teased that “you may see different romantic scenes for several of these characters during replays.”
It might be better to prepare your first playthrough with an entirely original character to get the full experience of awkwardly flirting with a woman who’s used to being called ‘the devil’ and who PlayStation says “can destroy anything she touches , and that includes you.” Emphasis on the awkward then, eh?
