The second of two characters available from the ''Zigo & Blanche'' DLC pack. A French actress who came to Rapture to captivate a new audience. When the theaters closed after the riots on New Year's Eve of 1959, she grew depressed and turned to ADAM abuse to cope. When the war starts, she begins taking part in it, finding it more enjoyable than the stage.


Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: She finds fighting in the war exciting, much more exciting than the theater.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotNice: She kicks plenty of ass as a Big Sister regardless of your decisions and [[spoiler: in one ending where she saves her mother, she admits that she's not doing it out of kindness or love, but [[CruelMercy because she wants to Sofia to live with the knowledge that everything she worked for was for nothing.]]]]

A brilliant mathematician, Porter worked for the allies in London during World War II, losing his wife Pearl to the German bombings. He accepted Andrew Ryan's offer to work in Rapture, building The Thinker, the ultimate processing machine, which he hoped to use to resurrect his dead wife. He was betrayed by his partner Reed Wahl and imprisoned in Persephone, but eventually escaped and teamed up with Dr. Tenenbaum and Subject Sigma to liberate The Thinker and flee Rapture. Subject Sigma is eventually revealed to be Porter, with the one guiding the player actually being The Thinker.

The computer created by Reed Wahl and Charles Milton Porter in Minerva's Den. It is a perfect Artificial Intelligence, maintaining the automated systems of Rapture and running Minerva's Den on its own. Porter, Tenenbaum, and Sigma want it in order to cure ADAM sickness. Unfortunately Wahl controls it, and desires to use it to crack the perfect predictive equation. It is sentient, and its true allegiance is unknown. [[spoiler:It helps Sigma and Tenenbaum, by impersonating Porter while betraying Wahl.]]

* TheCorrupter: Potentially. [[spoiler:Harvesting Little Sisters and killing the relevant [=NPCs=] will condition Eleanor to believe such behaviour is perfectly natural, and that her own survival justifies anything. She will extract your ADAM to make you a part of her (forcibly if you did not save at least one Little Sister) and vow the world will never see the destruction she will unleash coming.]]



* LivingEmotionalCrutch: Just as only Eleanor can keep you alive, so is your coming for her the only thing that allows her to maintain hope of a better tomorrow. In the end, you double as one of two other roles...

** MoralityChain: [[spoiler:Alternatively, if you save the Little Sisters (and optionally, spare the [=NPCs=]), she will develop a more conventional sense of morality, which may drive her even to forgive her mother and leave her the opportunity to move on. Eleanor even lampshades this by calling Delta her [[TheConscience conscience]], and extracts his ADAM so he can be with her forever.]]

* ShadowArchetype: Her very existence in Rapture scares the pants off of Ryan, because she represents everything he built Rapture to escape from. He has to be talked down

* ShadowArchetype: Her very existence in Rapture scares the pants off of Ryan, because she represents everything he built Rapture to escape from. He has to be talked down from sending her straight to jail when he figures out who she really is.



* AntiVillain: [[SlidingScaleOfAntiVillains Type I]]: he was involved in a lot of the more disturbing experiments and schemes run in Rapture, including the development of the Big Daddies, but he had [[EvenEvilHasStandards several lines he refused to cross]] and genuinely wants Delta to succeed in his mission to rescue Eleanor- especially since it will mean he gains access to technology he can sell on the surface. In a sense he's what Frank Fontaine would be like if he had some shred of morality [[spoiler:and ''weren't'' a sleazy conman]].

* FaceDeathWithDignity: If Delta choses chooses to kill her.



* LawOfInverseFertility: She's barren, and there's a barely-concealed subtext that the main reason she loves Eleanor so much is that [[LikeASonToMe she considered her the daughter she never got to have]].



* SassyBlackWoman: She certainly loves to sass at Subject Delta. Regardless of the fact he cannot even speak to her.

* AndIMustScream: The rest of the Big Daddies are in many ways ''luckier'' than Delta, because they've been brainwashed to the point that they are no longer self-aware or possessing human-level intelligence. Delta's self-awareness has been restored... meaning that he is now fully aware of the BodyHorror he has experienced, and the monster he has become. Even the BigBad Dr. Lamb is horrified at Delta's situation and expresses genuine pity: ''"I had thought you some golem of Sinclair, brought here to hold Rapture's arms as he rifles through her pockets. But no... you are '''aware''' of your plight. Who, I wonder, would be so cruel? To force a mirror... on a man with '''no face'''?"'' Also, in a literal sense, he apparently cannot physically speak anymore.
