Returning Bloodlines 1 Characters Speculation
« on: April 23, 2019, 08:54:50 PM »
Its no secret that some of Bloodlines 1 characters will make a return in Bloodlines 2.
So lets have some fun and speculate.

I would love if VV, Damsel, Pisha, Jack, Taxidriver/Cain and Beckett are back in 2 but everyone else is also welcome. Except for LaCroix, Sheriff, Ming Xiao, Chang Brothers, Mandarin, Johnny, Zygania, Vick, Jezebel, Kanker, Hannah, Tin Can Bill, Bach, Dennis and Andrei of course who should be dead.
Heather could be saved if the player send her away but i hope that she doesn´t come back.
I would prefer if Jeanette and/or Therese won´t return because of the playerchoice about their fates but that seems unlikely.
Jeanette is the most iconic character of them all.

I think Pisha, Jack and Beckett could come back as they are known to travel all over the world. VV, Ash, Isaac, Strauss, Damsel, Nines, Gary, Bertram, and other Nosferatu are pretty much bound to LA in my opinion and should not be around. Of course Cain should better not come back to keep his secret intact, or maybe he will turn the thinblood player into a full vampire?

According to the V5 canon "The Asylum" is now a franchise and both sisters survived so it would be possible for Jeanette e.g. to open a new club in Seattle :)!

I believe that the Bloodlines 2 trailer voice sound a lot like an older VV / Nika Futterman.
Also good authors always find ways to explain why XYZ are back. ;)
Well, except dead characters like LaCroix.
By the way I am not a big fan that the Seattle prince is named Cross.

Not as major or secondary character but as small cameo why not? ;)

I know but I don´t like this because it makes the Bloodlines 1 decision irrelevant.

I think Beckett is a must. If anyone has to return, then who better than him honestly.

You had mentioned somewhere that the Gehenna novels were no longer cannon and I believe BL1 is.  Is there anything that says what happened in LA after the prince and the box?  Did the Kwai'jin (sp) take over in a deal with the Camerilla?  None of that happening would free up a lot of characters to move there.  The scared mohawked dude on the beach may have ran there regardless and, as you said, the normal travelers like Beckett.  I could see the more fun characters there like (dog gone memory!) the private detective, perhaps Patty, or even the "dancer" (I just can't remember names today) being too scared to stay there (especially if she says Isaac was eliminated.  Romero is another one I wouldn't be surprised to see there - he'd hate Seattle as much as I do and even more then Hollywood (a lot of fun lines could come from that).  Canada is close by so, maybe Ash?  I'd still like to see Christoff :).

I could see that - at the very end a cabbie saying exactly what he said at the end of BL1.

Weren't the Kuei-Jin "retconned" in V5? I heard they don't exist anymore, so Ming Xiao should never be able to come back. I actually kind of liked her, before she stabbed me in the back (I went with them in my first or second playthrough of the game, can't remember right now).  XD

Well, VV has a club herself. Maybe she is opening another in Seattle too :)!

I'm pretty sure this is indeed a jab at LaCroix for old Bloodlines fans. I only hope the character is different enough so the name doesn't matter!

I think they already made this clear in Beckett's Jyhad Diary, which is a V20 source book which kind of leads from V20 to V5. I haven't read it so I don't know much more than what is listed in the WW wiki, but it seems many regions, among them LA, are visited to explain how their status quo is after Gehenna didn't happen...

The most badass character of all should return, of course. Chunk.

Don't be silly. Obviously the most badass is Fat Larry

Agreed! In fact there's been some speculation that the guy on the Ferris wheel from the promo is him.

You can kill Chunk at the Gallery or at the end and i would prefer if Bloodlines 2 respects all of the playerchoices. ;)
Well except from Pisha. She could also be killed but it would be a lot more interessing if Bloodlines 2 ignores that.

Chunk tells us in Bloodlines that he has six brothers upholding the law, so even if you kill him and his silent brother, there are five left :)!

Of course you can´t rule that out but in my opinion it would be a little to forced that we´ll see one his brothers in Seattle.
Also i suspect  that the Seattle Brother would be too similiar to Chunk.

Thread is a little more about who we'd like to return than pure speculation about who will, but we all have our biases hehehe.

I'd like Brian Mitsoda to reprise Romero, primarily because his talking voice rocks. Wasn't he a ghoul of Isaac Abrahms though?
