Third picture in a series of my favorite video game ladies - Darth Revan.
Darth Revan is an unusual selection for this list I guess because Revan isn’t canonically female - whatever that means though. Because lbr Star Wars canon also includes shit like midicholorians and the Yuuzhan Vong.
But really Darth Revan is what this list is all about: Meaningful representation.
KOTOR SPOILERS IN THIS BIT HERE LOOK AWAY IF YOU DON’T WANT THEM~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first time I played KOTOR I didn’t actually realize the big spoiler until it got there. Silly of me I guess but playing as a female character made all the difference - I didn’t expect to see this powerful, rebellious Jedi war hero-turned-Sith Lord be anything but a man under the mask. Revan is a leader, a firebrand, and quite possibly a monster. I never considered that my player character could be Revan, because Revan was a number of things that are typically coded as male, and I was playing a woman.
That’s what this list is about, honestly. It’s about the fact that as a woman, I want to play video games that give me the same thing men get from games. I want heroes and villains and everything in between, I want strong and weak and dangerous and wrong and right and beautiful and noble and flawed characters and I want them to be someone I can see myself in. As a gamer, you aren’t simply watching a story take place, you are enforcing and creating the story with every action you take. Given this, how can representation ever be construed as something inessential or petty? Empathy and agency are at the core of gaming as a medium, and forgetting this or failing to apply it to half of gamers is just dumb as hell.
