GLaDOS and VLaDOS
You can tell which one I had most trouble with haha.
Empress/Emperor, their role in the story is basically that they’re either a hungry power ruler of Nippon or they’re being controlled by their advisers who persuade them to make the choices for their own benefit. Eventually they are framed for a crime which they did not know that they did consciously and goes on the run with you after you save them from the attacking guards.
They commit to saying that they are just traveling with you to gain their seat back on the throne, but as the journey goes they learn about their people who suffer because of the rules set upon them on society and maybe slowly grow to become a more better leader. They aren’t weak by no means as they’ve been taught in the ways to protect themselves if need be. At this point I don’t know what they could use as weapons, but eh.
