There are plenty of Shion supporters out there. The hatemail I've gotten and some of the comments I've seen on the RPGFan Facebook prove it. In some ways it seems like the very reasons I and others abhor her are the same reasons why some people adore her. The funniest was a Shion defender admitting that her development does get progressively worse over the course of the trilogy. Way to shoot yourself in the foot there, bucko.
Whatever creams their Twinkies I guess.
EDIT: And MindCandy- if we're going that route, then definitely Fatima Doohan from Anachronox gets a nod. Speaking of Anachronox, I like Dr. Rho Bowman too. You don't see too many well-portrayed black women in RPGs, and Rho is great.
