I hate how she comes with me on missions just to randomly put herself in danger. There are so many scenes where she rushes forward and then a monster almost kills her.

She's basically the Princess Peach of the game. In a way, Princess Peach serves the same function in SOME Mario games since Mario also lacks a personality other than being heroic. Same as our character.

Partly that shes stupid. Shes always trying to get into danger.

Mostly the fact that shes responsible for the tutorials most of us already know how to do. Getting told annoying things make people dislike people.

She also isnt as attractive as the last handler, and Guildmarm is a hard act to follow.

She does have some cool moments though. I liked when she jumped down and threw the torch pod up to us in rotten vale.

I don't really mind her. I actually think she's kind of cute in her own way. My biggest beef though is they didn't even bother to name her. It's hard to have any attachment to a character that's just a damsel in distress without even a proper name. It makes her feel like a throw away character that never actually gets thrown away.

Hey! Did you know that the left stick moves your character?!

I swear, that prompt came up when I first got to Elder's Recess.

But yeah, Guildmarm was great. Moga Sweetheart was better too.

Guildmarm though. She wanted to bang a Brachy!
How dare the Gods work against me! I don't remember giving them permission.

The problem is that most people who play MH have a total disconnect from the story due to an inability to care about anything other than actually playing, and absolute disdain for characters who are not always 100% competent and badass, despite the fact that those characters serve to juxtapose just how competent and badass the competent and badass characters actually are.

Sorry, did I say people who play MH? I meant people that play games in general.

If a female character doesn't immediately give guys on GameFAQs a massive erection then there's good odds there's going to be complaints on this site.
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

I do agree with this. I find it strange that they didn't name her, considering her role. My only thought is that they figure she doesn't need a name since she's only there to augment our character, but still....

I don't really hate her, but she does some things that can be annoying. Like how she tells you at the very beginning you can't fight monsters without a weapon, yet later on she will carelessly run off, with no weapon, and bump into a hostile monster with, again, no weapon.

except ya know, Peach is cute, doesnt rush in the danger, isnt forced on you, nor take credit.
