Who is the most human character in Xenosaga, and is that individual even human? To figure that out, we’re chatting up our Vector co-workers, diagnosing Allen’s patheticness, discussing Jung’s origin of all shit, refusing to ask out our boss, confessing sins while we beat up our subordinates, reminisce enduring thoughts, ding-crossing with a ghost girl, slacking off because of bimbos, referencing multiple “incidents,” and committing to fix the Realians outside of union rules. Don’t have feelings about your science robot.
