    Today CB released last trailer for Infinity Defiance and we can find there this art.

    It is women in the Gwailo armor and her face is similar to the face of the Sheskiin from Beyond Wildfire box.
    IMHO what we see is rumored heavy version of Sheskiin in the Gwailo suit.
    What do you think?

    I want to start this thread by saying the Heavy Sheskiin rumour could have been started by me accidentally.

    I thought one of the Carloses said that the Beyond Wildfire version of Sheskiin shown during the in-person Gen Con seminar was the "light" version, implying a "Heavy" version to come. However it's not in prerecorded video so it could just be me going a bit mad.

    I hope it is heavy Sheskiin though, that would be amazeballs.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    YES. YES. YES PLEASE.

    I'VE WANTED A BADASS LADY IN POWERED ARMOR FOREVER. NO BOOB PLATE, NO SILLY THIN FRAME, JUST BADASS, JUST ARMOR. I WANT IT.

    In all reality, though, I hope that's not Sheskiin and a whole new character. Holy fuck, she looks BAD. ASS.

    Yeah I also heard Carlos speaking that BW version of Sheskiin is light version and ï had same thought that there is possibility of heavy version. I wouldn't be surprised to see her in Defiance.

    That does soothe the doubts I had about my sanity.

    I wonder what else we don't know about this release. There seem to be more surprises here than what we knew from before.

    Hmm, someone suggested the art could indicate she has a G: Sync Taigha.

    Okay, now that I have remembered how to breathe, I have to say:

    I haven't been this excited about a new profile since the Raicho change. Seriously.

    This is what I like for my games: new stuff that looks cool and is aesthetically pleasing. I am still on the fence regarding Defiance, but I am genuinely excited for this new profile. Let's just hope she's avaliable to Vanilla Combined (I'd like to see Gwailios in Vanilla as well, maybe have their AVA upped to 2 in Shas would allow them to be AVA in in Vanilla, but that's my wishlisting)

    So they start to make a more (or less) important special character into X-Versions? Sun Tze Sniper/Heavy, Joan D´Arc normal, mobility, Achilles ODD/Hoplite, Mushashi Merc/Aristea, KoDali YJ/CA, Tai Sheng female/male alter ego ... errm :smirk:

    Character Gwailo? Hopefully not Sheskiin, but maybe something similar.

    A character Gwailos would be cool. But if it is a Sheskiin v2, we can kinda judge based on other examples (Jeanne, Sun Tze, Achilles, etc) what changes might happen.

    Here's my best guess:
    gains: Higher ARM, higher BTS, heavier guns (although the art shown is either a multi rifle or red fury), gains multiterrain.
    losses: MOV downgraded to 4-4, fatality down to L1.

    as far as fireteam options go... either counts-as Gwailos or also wildcard.

    Holy crap... if she got an HMG and ARM 3+ (not including the nanoscreen) I might just pass out from excitement.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the Shas HMG is just a slightly larger RF with a slightly longer barrel as well.

    I think she'll have ARM4 and an HMG with maybe a downgrade to MOV4-4 to compensate, but that's it.

    What I would like to see is have FAT swapped for Full Auto 2, but I doubt CB would make her that broken. (yes, Full Auto is stronger than Fatality, fite me)

    YES.

    She lost nanoscreen but kept the high MOV value and gained multiterrain, so there's not much of a loss. Hackable is a problem when she's BTS6 and only WIP 13, but Protheion 4 helps a lot in this case, as does that EXP CCW. Lady is a brutal killer. Let's hope she's in Vanilla.
