    Qiang Gao
    Qiang Gao always leads with a gun in his hand, fighting shoulder to shoulder with those under his command. The overwhelming superiority of his weaponry and armor is the edge that his troops need to achieve their objectives.

    Cadin looks totally like a Wulver and he wouldn't be the first Wulver in a side game (there's Murtair in Aristeia).
    The fluff for Qiang Gao suggests he's the leader. Yu Jing guy being the leader feels a bit like making Raphael lead TMNT... But I guess if you needed a marksman PanO would be your first choice, and neither Nomads or Ariadna seem fitting for the leader role (especially Wulvers).

    So, now that we have all 4 heroes revealed... now what? We just wait until late in the year when they begin the Kickstarter? I guess they could show off some of the enemies in the meantime.

    We have plenty of things to reveal before GenCon (August 1st-4th, Indianapolis, USA), where the first Defiance demos will take place.

    So, stay tuned!

    Are they finally throwing a bone and letting Yu Jing be the good guy in charge for once?

    Don't be ridiculous, he's actually the final boss when he turns on the party.

    It'll be interesting to see how they ensure each class is fun to play. Shooty tank and stabby tank are obvious for a dungeon crawler, stealth/marksman makes a good delivery method for big damage or debuff abilites, but I'm worried about the hacker.

    It's tricky to make support characters desirable. DnD 5e did this by making Clerics ridiculously powerful and Bards super flexible, but without the ability to buff allies I'm concerned Jazz will be relegated to opening doors like deckers in the Shadowrun computer games.

    If we look at Aristeia! (which is made by the same team) the hackers there are buff/debuff machines handing out states like dazzled, focus, immobilised, etc. Jazz is also a Nomad hacker so we might see things like White Noise, Fairy Dust, assisted fire, etc. so very much taking on the Bard/Cleric role of buffing allies whilst hindering enemies.

    Yeah, and maybe she'll have a pitcher so she can set up some area denial or choke points from range.

    Considering the team is fighting the EI, it's also possible there will be enemy hackers. The big stompy Yu Jing guy won't like being immobilized, so she'll have to take out enemy hackers potentially.

    @Koni Any hopes of video content of said demo games for us poor souls that can't make it out there for the show? I'd love to see more about how defiance is going to play.

    Just side-by-side comparison with the Patsy render/model (and the Orcs) and Uma is orders of magnitude better (I even like the open helmet, literally a first!).

    Seriously excited to see the rest, but this is a high bar to set yourselves.
