Complaining about lesbian vampires is gay ( ). I also don't see a problem with an african vampire as such, provided there is some form of NOT-Egypt and the location is a major trading hub (which means a lot of people from different regions of the world meet there). Or if a setting is relatively modern (plane travel or action takes place in USA). Rudi is obviously a problem, because his whole character is literally a pretext to push in SJW shit with no real justification, but that's no surprise considering the kind of people who were working on Bloodlines 2 at that time.Honestly, I hate Astarion, but compared to Hexxat which can be summarized in "afro lesbian vampire" and Rudi in "woke muslim gay vampire", Astarion is not THAT bad.
We wuz vampires and sheeeeeeeit.
Just kidding, all cultures around the world have a vampire or vampire equivalent. A bloodsucking, undead monster that preys at night and is damaged by holy symbols can be found in the Phillipines. An egyptian themed vampire I can buy, what I don't buy is Count Dracula with an Afro.
Hexxat was written all over the place, as a reminder:
>She tortures an adventurer to trick you into getting into a tomb where she is forever bound
>She then proceeds to kill the same adventurer to prove how much of a girlboss she is
>While still being bound and trapped in the tomb, she proceeds to threaten the PC into releasing her unless they kill the guadian of the tomb and release her from her geas
>Then she acts like hot shit and threatens the PC by saying she will do anything at all, and kill anyone in her way
>Then because Beamdog, you welcome her into the party
There's Chaotic Evil and there's retarded Evil, at least Edwin could pretend to be sympathetic or outright lie to the PC to advance his agenda.
