Ooh~ Fascinating question! I must answer it!
I find women and men to be romantically attractive, but I find only women to be sexually attractive so this may or may not play a role into my perception of the characters.
Overall, I find all of the characters to be very engaging and, if you pull back some of the initial layers (though it does depends on the character!), possess depth - the amount of depth they possess is another matter of debate entirely! ;3
I’ve only played with an all-female Team Bravo, as a female MC, because of the point I explained above and because I think this game might go beyond just romantic attraction, but that’s probably also based on who you choose to pursue a relationship with (that’s my guess at this point in time, so I could be wrong in the future):
A - Despite her gruff exterior, she’s gotten to where she is because of her skills as the team leader, which is no small feat in that of itself.
Just think of a leader, or general, in charge of a group of soldiers. They’re the leader because they have experience, both victories and losses. They know what they’re doing works, unless they’re too prideful to admit otherwise, and they’ll keep doing what’s worked because there’s a higher chance that it’ll work in the future.
This is the thought process I apply to A. Despite the dramatic irony that I experience as a player, I do slide my detective to trust A, albeit reluctantly because dynamic relations are the BEST!, because she’s gotten herself and her team through all the crap they’ve been through, alive and seemingly well.
Overall, I’d be open to a relationship with her that’s both romantic and sexual at the same time.
F - She’s not my top pick for a relationship because I’m more intrigued in the others, but I’ve strolled down her path once or twice and it intrigues me to pick into her thought process, habits, and personality. At one point, I think, she puzzles over why humans are so finicky about contact and relationships and, I believe the implication could extend to, sex.
She could’ve grown up or spent a significant amount of time in a culture where individuals are casual about touch, think about the stereotypes of Italians who just breathe in your face. Her introduction is where she kisses you on the cheek and you have the choice of returning it! That’s a greeting found in that area of Europe, where I don’t exactly know, but it’s somewhere around there! I think…
Overall, I think I would be open to a sexual relationship, but if she wanted to pursue a romantic one, I would not be opposed to it.
M - She’s been through crap and it shows if you bring her to interview the witness to the first murder, I think. She comments on the state of the house, in contrast to N who is compassionate, and says that the resident should be grateful to have a roof over their head.
I can’t say with confidence that she lived on the street, but there is that implication she had a rough childhood. She doesn’t say much but what she does say with her dialogue and her actions, is that she hasn’t had the nicest childhood where she got everything she wanted for the holidays. In a nutshell, at least.
The second time you get a moment with her is after talking to Garrett’s mother, ya know, the car scene where she traps you in that tiny space of a car. If I shift that scene around where Morgan is instead Mason, I can say that I would be disturbed by that turn of events and what it could be if Mason wasn’t a “good guy”.
True, we’re in broad daylight, but stranger and messier things have happened despite the sun being out. If it’s Morgan in the vehicle, I’m more inclined to believe that the atmosphere is simmering with subtext, either romantic or sexual is your decision, and personally, I’m more comfortable with it.
Overall, I’m intrigued by that predator and prey dynamic that’s going on and would be open to pursuing a sexual relationship. A romantic one? … I think we’d need to talk that one out before deciding to do anything and establish what we both want from a romantic relationship, if we decided to pursue that direction.
N - A down to earth type of woman, very nice (that’s her ECM for crying out loud!), idealistic (to a point), and maybe a bit of a broken bird?
Despite her approachable personality, and I can’t believe I’m writing this, N could be fleshed out a bit more. (Edit: This is where I accidentally start to write to @Seraphinite, not @yagamikuuno, my bad. ^^;)
It’s nice that you’ve added the detail that she doesn’t get along with technology, but she’s a vampire who may or may not have been around before that technology existed and is now trying to adapt. It’s not surprising and not all that unique when you consider that she’s a vampire - just like if you applied the “can’t get along with technology” trope to seniors; some will get technology and some won’t.
Is she a bit of a stereotype? Depends on which stereotype you’re comparing her to. I’m comparing her to vampire stereotypes, and yes, she fits the bill into the angsty-vampire category.
- Feels some sort of remorse or regret about being a vampire? Check.
- Wants to prevent humans from being involved in the supernatural because it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, it’s nasty and it’s real and it sucks? Check.
- Point above causes them to clash with other vampires, or supernaturals, who believe that humans should do what they want and then reap the consequences? Check.
Back to the main point… Got off track, my bad.
The shy flirt options, I haven’t tried the bold ones yet, seem to be bordering on a romantic relationship and that’s the one that I’d pursue with N. A sexual relationship could come later, but I would enter in a relationship with N because of the romantic aspect, not the sexual one.
