I'm thinking of Labeling Handsome jack as an Ubermensch. He has the rejection of conventional morality, the charisma, and the desire to create a new world but I want a second opinion.

He has those qualities, true, but he falls short of the ideal because 1. Jack is a massive hypocrite. 2. Jack is actually a very needy person who really wants other people to confirm how great he is, to the point of reacting violently to rejection (e.g. Moxxi and Angel) and building his own city to worship him after he kills everyone. Which rather kills the pure independence part of the concept.

I'm thinking of adding Deiter Von somethingzimmerschneit to the character page, since he provides a few subquests and lots of commentary about his character while you're doing them.

Anyone know how to spell his damn name though? XD

Henrichzimmerschneit, IIRC

I'm thinking that in a similar context to how the first game's character page is labelled by faction/corporation, so too should this page, so I'm thinking something like:
  • For the characters in the Captain Scarlett DLC, something like Oasis/Wurmwater?
  • Just having "Torgue" for the second DLC could work out, seeing as, aside from the arena itself, the corporation is apparently staffed by the same kinds of mooks you've blasted your way through in Pandora.
  • Professor Nakayama could be placed under "Hyperion" for obvious reasons. And if there would be at least one fleshed-out character aside from him in Aegrus, the continent would have a folder too I guess.

I think it's fine just as it is, categorized by DLC.

I'm not gonna make a big deal about it, but the reason I spoilered the Warrior's entry is because its very existence is a spoiler, just like certain villains from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Hell, we even have a trope for it.
