This is a discussion more about how Warbucks design and writing is quite, how do I put this lightly, bad. I’m not gonna explain all this just to scare Warbucks stand but just to bring to light on now to Not write a character for this sweet game.
He's the first ever character to have such a,..skin tone after a series of making every character have a skin tone that of paper and toned paper as a part of the art style. It’s hard to deny that it is due to his many adventures in the sun beatten jungles, but its hard to convince that he could be a POC because of the sorta history behind his character and quotes. It’s disappointing to see how the canon POC characters arent even close when it comes to saturation of skin color.
The blunderbuss weapon. Warbucks had quotes referring to hunting, and some folks were fine with the idea of him being a big game hunter as that’s just what rich folks did back then. But during a KLEI art stream his portrait was altered to a shovel because he is NOT a big game hunter, and his current quotes had removed references to his hunting expeditions.
Touchy Subjects: His character is ‘Rich British Explorer’. If you are aware on history like me, I was very afraid on what kind of character he was stereotyped as. Such type of people were hmm, not good to other cultures, had bad ideas on em, imperialism, all that jazz. Anddddd Warbucks originally had those quotes :/
East India Company.. REALLY, A big part of the British imperialism industry..These are now all edited to remove such a uhh tone, if you dont believe me I am glad to send you the original LUA speech file. It’s disappointing really that the new writing for new DS content had ended up like this. Sooo that’s soup for ya
It's still good in a sense that KLEI edited all of that as they've seen their mistake, but Oof I just wanna make folks see why I was iffy on this character. I love KLEI but dango you made a booboo.
He's just too 'perfect' in the imperfect world of DS, the only character flaws I see is him being stinky if he existed in real life. I understand that Klei hired new writer(s), which is why Woodlegs has new lines that have bad pirate grammar. Yet making a character like Warbucks on that line of historical people is hoohaaa
