Character Interview: Commander Keane Blaze
Q: Commander Keane, what was it like waking up after being in cryo-sleep for 1000 years?
A: Well, I definitely felt well rested. I'll admit, it was a huge shock at first when my AI told me I had been in cryo-sleep for 1000 years. Everyone I knew and loved had passed away. But I had to keep moving on... I knew I couldn't stay there and cry myself into oblivion. That, and I was hungry.
Q: Your crew of soldiers is definitely a strange mix. What is it like working with them?
A: It's amazing having all of these different personalities come together in a way that can blow things up. Lynxie... well, for one, I thought she was dead. She's the most loyal person I know, and I can count on her for anything. Rippa is amazing, as long as you have some cover when he finds a rocket launcher. Trust me, you do NOT want to be close to him at that time. Imagine a tank on a sugar high, and that’s pretty much him. Prometheus, my big robot buddy, has a personality of his own. Usually, that personality involves his giant gun. My crew has assassins, soldiers, leaders, and followers. Yeah, we're a diverse group, but you'd better believe that we'll get the job done.
Q: Last question: How do you feel now after crashing your ship into the enemies and falling from great heights?
A: Honestly, kinda hungry. I could go for a burger. Also, my back is sore and I have a little limp when I walk. But, like I said, mostly hungry. Can I go now? Lynxie, Rippa and I are heading to 'The Bar.” Hey, why don't you join us?
