Excellent point, I loved Yukie as well.

Same here, she was a lot of fun.

She's still likely to appear as well, given how (as far as I know) she doesn't have a death state in her questline.

Well, she CAN die, but it's hard to imagine that as canon.

Maybe she will have a deeper role this time if she makes an appearance.  Get a lot more fleshed out. 

I would like to see Nines again but I'm pretty sure his heart remains with LA.

It might depend on what tone the game might have. Some people might be a bit put off by her. Not me though.

If the SWJ rumors are true, which I hope they are not, someone like Yukie wouldn't be possible anyway. An all Asian stereotype girl showing her panties would surely be called racist and anti- feminist nowadays ;)!

Unless her design shows an evolution on her character. Some elements can be removed (like the huge gauntlet) or added (a wider arsenal). The important is her personality, a girl survived to a deep tragedy, raised as a great hunter and yet not narrow minded as most of her collegues, won't be altered.

Writing this down I made an interested thought: her heavily stereotyped character is also a P.C. role model. No need to be cautious of SJW bitchin.

I could see Ash River making a return since he says that he is going to leave LA and enough time has passed since Bloodline 1-2 for him to settle down or becoming worse and he could make some reference to the bloodline PC in the sequel.
It would also make the most sense out of all the characters, I wouldn't mind seeing VV again.

Well, in five years, she probably isn't a schoolgirl anymore and will dress and look like a woman.

That sounds to me more like "uptight prude with no sense of humor".  How can anyone think that using a character style created BY the Japanese themselves is racist?

Don't forget about the robot arm... was that even a "robot arm" ?

A gauntlet, if my memory didn't failed on me, is a metallic glove (although non being native english I may did a mistake :razz:)

It did look pretty cool and perhaps would look even better with a revamped (ha!) design.

Isn´t the year gap between Bloodlines 1 and Bloodlines 2 more fifteen than five years?
Also why should Yukie stay in the US when she already had achieved her goal in killing the hengeyokai?
I believe she return to Japan and dress in a more traditional japanese way.

Ash on the other hand is possible but i don´t get the impression in Bloodlines that he would settle down
in densely populated areas like Seattle.
Also like Yukie he can die in the Leopold caves.

That kind of thing doesn't always stop game devs.  Baldur's Gate 2 brought back characters that could have died in the previous installment and you could ask things like "Didn't I kill you?"  lol.  Plus didn't I read in this very thread that canonically some characters that could die in the original game are still officially alive, like Jeanette and Therese?  Maybe some of these other characters are as well.

Baldurs Gate 2 was a long time ago and "newer" games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age have respect in most cases the previous player choices.
But in Ash case i agree with you he would speculate that 95% had saved Ash from Leopold.
Its negligible but Jeanette / Therese? I am not a fan of decision retcons especially in this instance.
