It turns out, the Tom Clancy series is pretty badly written! Marvel at the “relationship” of Sam and Sarah Fisher of the Splinter Cell series, a father-daughter duo where the woman’s role is simply to be a carrot on a stick to drive Sam forward. She isn’t treated as valuable in her own right, only as a motivation for Sam to do Spy Stuff. They’re not even consistent in her storyline and characterization. Bah, the hell with that. Let’s have some fun talking about Asagi Asagiri from Nippon Ichi, the character that transcends game and series to always be unhappy with her lot in life, and ready to mess up anyone standing between her and the spotlight.
