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


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

People do some highly illogical speculation. "Dude is a vampire and has hair down to his shoulders! IT'S BECKETT." Ehhhh but how about all the evidence to the contrary? Beckett is a logical guy and a Gangrel. The guy on the ferris wheel looks to be a Toreador from his hair, good looks in the face, his classy attire, and the rose in his pocket; probably a Toreador Antitribu (they're sadists). This guy appears to have murdered two civilians for kicks, and getting up on a ferris wheel to enjoy his kills, inviting the viewer to join in the fun. Beckett doesn't kill humans for pleasure and the scene is so whimsical that it's incredibly unlikely that the Beast took this Kindred over to put him in this particular situation atop a ferris wheel with two civvies.

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

He totally should return... unless he was actually killed by The Sheriff... which would totally suck.

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?

That's what he seems to imply in his dialogue (I don't know if he is more direct about it in some of the branches).

Yeah, I don't think it's him either, I guess people are eager to find ANY clues about a returning character in what little information we have (some think the female narrator is VV, personally I don't see it, the voice doesn't really match IMO and her tone is very different from VVs, although I suppose it's not impossible).

That being said, Beckett is still one of the most likely characters to return, he's been part of the lore for a long time and not just the games, he travels a lot, is drawn by interesting historical events plus he said in BL1 that he finds thin bloods fascinating.

And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is

Maybe but we can clearly rule out some of the characters.

I would prefer if he comes back as the newscaster and flesh him more out as real NPC.

I utterly detest the Kuei-Jin so I hope NONE of them return. 

That said, I would love to see VV, Jeanette, Romero, Becket, Pisha and Maximillian Strauss, although Strauss would be unlikely, being a primogen and all and possible replacement LA Prince.  But I just love his speaking voice and the way he says "Neonate". 

Now was someone saying someting about the Kuei-Jin being done away with totally?  :D

Thats very unlikely. I doubt that any from Chinatown characters make a return.
Maybe Mr. Ox but the Kuei-Jin especially Ming Xiao won´t come back.

Seattle has it's own Chinatown though and as far as I know the Eastern Vampires are still trying to get a hold on the West Coast of the US in V5...

You are absolutely correct (Washingtonian here) that Seattle has a Chinatown within the Chinatown-International District along with Japantown and Little Saigon.  That is certainly where the Kuei-Jin would base themselves.  I just really loath the entire concept of the "Kindred of the East".  They are too "Mary Sue" like for my tastes, if that makes any sense.  Plus they are snobbish, hostile and I hate the lore surrounding their powers and existence.

Before the kuei gin where conceived, it was introduced one vampire clan/bloodlines from the far east (now not only is exinct but very probably also decanonized....)

From what I understand, there are still small populations of Cainite vampires in the East despite the existence of the Kuei-Jin.

Yes, such as some of the Nagaraja, which is the bloodline Pisha belongs to.

I'd certainly like to see Yukie again. She was quite the heart-warming hunter. I get pretty friggin' tired of the Society of Leopold (SoL) types. Full-on zealotous hunters are good for morality-free kills, but they're narratively boring. I want hunters with whom I can have dialogs with, get threatened, vice versa, have uneasy alliances with, or even kill or ghoul not-so-bad ones to please my Kindred superiors.

But yeah, Yukie and/or lots of non-SoL hunters would make me quite happy.

Excellent point, I loved Yukie as well.
