The Vetoed Picks – Ethos: Jack

During the process of creating these Top Five lists, Riddles and I ran into a number of disagreements. Some of them so great that we decided that we’d both be allowed a single veto. Because there was more debate on the female side of things, we each vetoed a female pick of the other’s. But we also decided that we’d get a shot to defend the one we wanted to make the list so bad. So here goes.

Jack is sexy. Riddles is quick to call any woman with a tough shell a bitch…which is especially funny because if Oliver were a woman, he’d be exactly like that. Anyway, Jack definitely can be rude and rough around the edges, but she’s smart, honest, and doesn’t bullshit. I respect that. She went through an insane childhood, raised in a testing facility and referred to as “Subject Zero”. When she finally escaped, she went on a rampage, joining cults, killing people, and desperately trying to find herself.

Sure, all the murder and crazy biotic powers make her a little scary, but she grows to trust Shepard; a very rare thing for Jack to do. It’s once this happens that Jack shows that she hasn’t just turned into a killing machine. She never turns into that scared little girl who just needs a friend, but she is able to speak freely of her vulnerabilities and own them while making it clear that she has no problem blasting somebody’s face off if she has a reason to.

But Jack is not just sexy in her confident, quick, and no bullshit attitude. She’s also tattooed from head to toe, which excuses the fact that’s she’s practically naked – the tats basically look like clothing – she shaves her head, and as mentioned before, is a powerful biotic badass. Not to mention she’s got the brooding loner thing going for her. She’s a sexy chick, and Riddles is crazy to use his veto in this case.

But then I should know that he’s crazy, just wait ’till you see the complete shit he wanted to drag into our list. I had to let Samus fly because I had no choice but to place my veto on his insane opinion. Sorry for the spoilers, but I look forward to seeing Riddles fly off the handle because I’m bashing his dear Shelob.

    I do love me some tattoos.

  2. SiliconNooB says:

    What idiot vetoed Jack? And why … ?

    Definitely one of your sexier picks Ethan.

  3. Ethos says:

    Like I said, Riddles just thinks she’s a bitch.
    And thanks! I agree. Now where’s Riddles with Shelob?

  4. 7thCircle says:

    Who’s Shelob? The sexy hawt fuckable spider in The Lord of the Rings?

  5. Ethos says:

    It’s my hint as to Riddles’ pick that I vetoed. And yes, the hint is that spider.

  6. 7thCircle says:

    I see, a hint eh? I thought maybe it was a character in a game I hadn’t played or had forgotten about. Sorta like Sheena. I played Tales of Symphonia years ago, but I don’t recognize Sheena’s name unless people are already talking about Symphonia. She was stored in my memory as “that girl from that city who isn’t annoying like Collette.”

    I think it would have been better if Riddles strategically use the actual spider from LotR to force you to waste your veto. That would have given him much more “schemer” cred.

    Also, I’m guessing it’s Kerigan from Starcraft, but don’t tell me if I’m right or not :D.

  8. 7thCircle says:

    Oliver is too young for StarCraft. My guess is Morrigan from DAO.

  9. SiliconNooB says:

    Morrigan is the sexiest woman in any game ever!

  10. Ethos says:

    Riddles has disappeared into the ether of moving, so I’m writing his post and not giving mercy.

    And dear fuck no, I didn’t veto Morrigan. I vetoed someone who ISN’T sexy.

  11. 7thCircle says:

    She’s the only video game character I could think of who would work as a Spider Lady. And iunno, I’ve seen rants by people who thought she was a slutty, horse-faced shitsmear on your party trying to satisfy goth gamers.

  12. DarthGibblet says:

    I never understood why Morigan didn’t like it when I called her a saucy minx. I meant it in the best possible way!

  13. Ethos says:

    Glenn always trying to stir shit up!

    And I know, right Darth?
