After a year and a half of lurking, I finally decide to comment on the forums because a question is bugging me… is Rachael an assassin?
I was replaying the game for like the 6th time due to extreme boredom (thanks for that, Hurricane Maria) and it was just now that I put these things together.
First, she says she works in a supplier of funerary material (or something similary). What does she supply them? Corpses.
Second, she mentions that she’s seen lots of deaths and is tired of seeing death. Why is this weird? Well, it’s the end of the world - we’ve all seen significant amounts of death, but not thaaat much at this stage of the event. She also seems like an emotionally strong, focused person that has her stuff together, so maybe 3 days and few zombies shouldn’t be that bad for her (yet)? But wait, despite giving the appearance of being strong and all that, she says that she’s tired of all the death she has seen in her life. Maybe she has wanted to stop being an assassin and the end of the world is giving her the opportunity to do so? This was the most suspicious thing for me.
And third, she has that seemingly advanced, dissassembled sniper rifle in a pretty suitcase. This is like the staple of assassins in movies, TV and games! Oh, and she also caresses it. I don’t own guns but I doubt people caress them unless they’ve “bonded” long enough with them (need a better source, so don’t take might word for it), like going to war or sniping lots of people for money. I wonder if she has named the rifle…
I think I had a fourth point, but I can’t recall it now (possibility that she travels a lot?) Maybe I’ll replay later to see of I remember.
TL:DR; She’s an experienced assassin, but she’s tired and wants to stop. The apocalypse is giving her the opportunity to start again with a blank slate.
So, what do ya’ll think? I searched for a little while and found nothing, but maybe it’s supposed to be obvious or I’m making a chicken out of a feather so IDK.
