That actually makes a lot of sense now, but why is the Arkana so bipolar about addressing the commander then? At one point she'll be like "don't stare at my ***!" another time she'll treat you like a pervert, and then out of the blue she talks to you like you were her master. Granted, this may be part of the localization and if this issue has already been address I apologize for bringing it up, but for someone who was really into the story line, little things like that stuck out like a sore thumb. Of course most people probably just spam-clicked through the story line and engaged the auto-pilot to a quest destination objective, but I strongly feel like that even those people who skipped the story line will eventually return to it after hearing just how amazing and captivating it is. I honestly haven't seen stuff this good since early SNES games (some games had such great story lines, they completely overshadowed any pixalated graphics and pushed the games to great success)
On a side note, I feel like dialect directly between your Arkana is a huge plus for this game. It establishes the mentioned symbiotic relationship between her and yourself. However, I found her too ungrateful at times given the predicament she is in. For example, she recognizes that the special dust or whatever it was called, is extremely rare and only Lord Brahmans can obtain it, so clearly she sees that we have something she needs. It would be nice if she recognized that, hey, I may have to shell out real life $$$ to get this stuff and effectively use it to benefit her directly. And there she goes off about "don't stare at my ***", "I'm not your b****" (dungeon 1), and so on.
Confidingly at other times she goes so deep as to say she gets wet just thinking about Lord Brahman ( zone 2 o_O ). So this is why I got confused between the two entities and although intuitively I wanted to establish them as one and the same, Arkana's bipolar view of them suggested otherwise.
Anyway, just my two cents. I also wanted to thank the localization team for a FABULOUS job that they are doing! I eagerly look forward to this game's next phase!
