CLOSED - Rate Cross Characters 27: Orlha

Evaluate Orlha based on her character design, combat usefulness, and Tilt factor -- which can mean anything, from how much she strikes you as cool to how important she is to the plot.

Character Design: Orlha the bar tending fighter...interesting, interesting...

Combat Usefulness: One of the best blue elements in the game, if not the best.

Tilt: Orlha is very interesting because she has an extremely odd sister/twin/alternate that is quite confusing. I like her as she is, though she would need some improvement to stay a PC on MY list.

Final Grade: B.

Design: A little "slutty", but not that much.

Combat: Fighting her to get that item took a couple of tries for me. So I know she's strong. (Never have got past the black dragon, mind you.)

Tilt: WTF was up with her twin sister? Weirdest alternate part ever.

Final Grade: B

ZeaLitY, you said "NeoFio" instead of "Orlha" in your post.

Design: Nothing amazing.

Combat: I never used her. I assume she's meant for physical attacking and not much else. Damn, I have a lack of combat knowledge since I used few characters.

Tilt: One of the most confusing background stories. Was it ever even resolved? But seriously, I never understood it. Was the 'sister' her alternate world counterpart or what? Anyway, I had no argument with her development, despite it being lacking (she at least got a decent amount compared to most characters). Extra points for actually joining you in a different way than most characters. Agreeing with nightmare, she'd need more improvement to become a permanent PC.

Final Grade: C

EDIT: Oh joy, two A votes without any given reason.

Bet I can tell you why those two people who don't feel the need to justify their As voted that way.

Those won't be tallied.

Looking back, I'm just not going to count unsubstantiated renegade votes (meaning, those without posts).

WTF!!??? Then why have the polls at all?
If I wanted to state my opinion of why I'm voting the way I am... I would.
Your missing the whole point of what a poll is suppossed to be like: annonymous.

Looking back, I'm just not going to count unsubstantiated renegade votes (meaning, those without posts).

You just simply can't do that. More than half the voting on all the polls have gone without giving a reason or any explanation at all whatsoever.

The only reason I hadn't been giving an explanation on any of my votes is because I simply didn't feel comfortable wiht my postings yet. Besides, another reason was because in most of the threads almost everything that can be said about a character has already been stated by one of you guys.

I will be seriously pissed if you exclude all of my votes, because even though I have posted in some of them, in not a single one have I posted what grade I gave a given character.

Bah, I figured someone would interpret that to mean all votes without posts. I mean just the crazy ones.

There are 3 C votes for Kid, and only Zaperking felt it necessary to explain why she got a C. And maybe maggiekarp. That leaves one totally unsubstantiated vote for what is otherwise a top PC.

Same for Orcha getting an A. Whoever voted that didn't feel the need to justify why such a PC is apparently on par with Serge.

Votes like that would only distort things.

Oh okay, no worries then.

Wait...
Is that all of the votes that are not going to be tallied? Or are there more of them?

Edit: In my opinion, maggiekarp didn't really justified his answer as thoroughly as ZaperKing. Not to mention the fact that he/she gave her a lower rating than Macha, and yet goes ahead and claims that it was one of her favorite characters in a videogame.

Character Design: A pretty, kick-ass blonde, though they could have dialed down the slut factor a bit...

Combat Usefulness:  Kicks serious ass.  She is an excellent blue innate, and if memory serves correctly she's one of the best in the game. 

Tilt: The Sapphire Brooch item and the story behind it is something I find extremely interesting.  Also one must consider her scenes with Doc.  But she could use so much more development...


Final Grade: B.

Character Design: Her design unique, and when I first saw the images of all of the CC characters before I played the game, she was one of the ones that caught my eye, for some reason. Attractive, yet dangerous... reminds me a bit of a blonde, pig-tailed Tifa Lockheart.

Combat Usefulness: From what I have played of her, she is excellent in combat, being able to deal large amounts of damage with her physical attacks.

Tilt: Her backstory was very vague... It was never explained how she and her sister were separated into alternate dimensions. If this were elaborated on, she would have been a much deeper and more intriguing character. Also, she should've been introduced as a relevant character earlier in the game, so that she would've had more time to develop this interesting backstory of hers. This is what really holds Orlha back as a character, and I would've given her a higher score otherwise.

Final Grade: C

Chara-design : A pretty martial artist who reminds me of Aika from Skies of Arcadia Legends.

Combat usefulness : I think she is the best choice for a blue element.

Tilt factor : I can't remember a lot about her backstory, maybe because it was a little confusing. I still remember her encounter with her sister Tia, a moment I particularly liked in the game.

Final Grade : B
