If Clementine is in Season 2...

...how would you like it to be handled, honestly?

For example, my own hoped for scenario - perhaps Clementine is a more independent character in the new game, a new member of the season's group (two members of which found her from the hill scene) who helps defend against walkers but does not form the same parent-child bond with the PC as before (so as not to make her bond with Lee seem not special.) You can befriend her, but more like Lilly or Ben did than like Lee did. She is shaped by your previous actions, either acting aloof towards the others (if you told her not to trust them) or being kind to them. But she shoots walkers just as well as other group members, leading the group to respect her and treat her like an adult.

Then in one scene, your character could find one of Clem's drawings. Maybe it could be a picture of Lee and her, or Lee handcuffed in the jewelry store, or Lee, Kenny, Christa, and Omid. Either way, it'd be a subtle reference without all-out continuation of the previous game. And maybe eventually we could run into Christa/Omid, Molly, Lilly, etc (maybe even Kenny, if he's alive) and the whole Lee situation could come up and be explained.

Eh, I guess this is kind of a lame topic for discussion, but I wondered.

  • As a member of the new group, able to defend herself.

  • I know most people don't want Clem to be the protagonist but I do. Not 20 years in the future or something, the same age as in season 1. You hardly ever get to play a zombie game as a child it would be a new experience. I vote protagonist.

  • I want her to be a legend among survivors, like you hear tales of a girl doing incredbily things...and the nature of the things (Killing bandits, doing medicine, lone wanderer or group explorer) is determined by your actions in season 1.

    That, or as a minor character for a couple of episodes (similar to Molly). After the cliffhanger ending, I just want her either dead or definitely okay so I don't have to worry so much.

    As much as I previously have said I don't want that, I will concede that I wouldn't mind it at all. It would indeed be a new experience, playing as a child. My only quarrel with the idea is that it would mean changing Clem's established personality - if we have the choice to make Clem do horrible things, then what good did Lee's teachings even do her? She could become a horrible, ruthless murderer at the drop of a hat just because the player wants to be cruel. Clem doesn't seem like that type of person to me, even when in the scenario where Lee is horrible to her and tells her not to trust people etc.

    That sounds pretty neat, though our new group would have to be fairly close to the Savannah area if that happened, unless Clementine travels far?

    I will say I definitely do not want her dead, but it'd be good to have her be confirmed 'okay.' I think if they don't do that I'd rather she just not show up at all, because killing Clementine would be horrible. (Maybe not in a bad way, because of the rule of drama, but horrible nonetheless.)

  • I'd say a mix of the first two, not needing as much help and being able to hold her own but still needs a parent/adult figure to guide her.

  • I'd like it if you played a teenager, male or female is not important to me because both scenarios would be interesting, and then, because basically you're a kid too, or at least considered one you and her would have a brother/sister or big sis/lil' sis relationship. Going through the parent figure thing again would kind of seem out of place, but that'd be a first.

    That makes me take the first option in the poll, I guess.

    Ah, I didn't consider that option. Thankfully I left the first option fairly ambiguous, at least in the poll.

    What age do you mean specifically by "teenager?" Obviously 18 ish would be less considered a "child," so perhaps 15 or 16? That's actually a very interesting idea. A brother/sister or big sis/little sis would indeed be a fresh dynamic (although wasn't it implied that Ben and Clementine had that sort of relationship?)

  • Awwww man i voted wrong :/ i wanted the minor character thing and clicked on the last :(

    Anyway, i want her to appear but not as a main protagonist. More like a Carley or a Mack, they help you, you talk to them, they are cool. But they don't get to involved in the game.

    She is the main protagonist tough, so she will most likely be one of the most importants.

    Never really thought about that. Clem being the protagonist is a bad idea. Well it's not all bad. Can I change my vote? I just thought about putting Clem in some of Lee's choices such as killing Larry how is Clem supposed to pull Lilly off him, and I don't see Kenny relying on her in my fantasy. What was I thinking?

  • Prediction: We play Christa and she ends up having to choose between saving Omid or Clem.
