You don’t know what you’re talking about. Why is Zangief a red-wearing soviet musclehead who likes borscht and calls everyone “comrade”? Why are all the American characters blonde white guys, who are involved in the military, arrogant douchebags, or a really fat arrogant douchebag? Why does Fuerte keep talking about tortillas, quesadillas and burritos? Why is T. Hawk a native with feathers in his cap who talks about totems and goes “HAOW” and has a pet hawk? Why is Elena obsessed with animals and nature, and Dudley obsessed with tea? There’s a level of stereotype to ALL the characters in SF. My character is actually less of a stereotype in comparison, unless you’re deliberately imagining her as a comedy “fat and ugly” heavyweight girl, which is something only shitty western devs do, and not what I’m envisioning at all. Capcom is a Japanese company, they design all their girls according to what they like about girls. There isn’t a single girl in the entire SF universe that they deliberately made unattractive, I don’t see why they’d start here. Besides, Capcom already has an attractive heavyweight girl in the SF universe, which is B. Widow from Slammasters 2. That was the bodytype I imagined my character having, except with longer hair. So really your conclusion about it being an uninspired design is baseless and stupid since she only exists in concept at the moment anyways and you applied a “western studio” way of thinking to it.
As someone who was born and raised in Canada I don’t think of a lumberjack as being an offensive stereotype at all, and a “lumberjill” even less so since those are practically unheard of. Most people don’t even know there’s a term for a female lumberjack. Instead of an offensive thing I see it as a prideful representation of Canada. I don’t know if you’re aware but there’s quite a lot of nature here, and some of the stereotypes ring true about us; we DO love drinking, we do love hockey, we have a lot of lumber which we get a lot of use out of, we like the cold, we love maple syrup and we do a lot of oil-related work. In any case, it’s mostly an origin story, and an excuse to give her that awesome log rolling move which I take a lot of pride in.
