I agree with you. perhaps we should revamp the description, again.

I wonder how helpful the "son" and "daughter" traits are they stand now? I mean, everyone (excluding a few special cases like homunculi, and even then they sometimes have adoptive parents) is someone's son or daughter.

I feel like it would be better to have "Protagonist's Son," "Main Character's Son" and "Side Character's Son" and the same ones for daughter, just to have more helpful and distinguishing traits.

May I suggest a new trait?
Personality > Talking Patterns > Laconic
Aliases: Terse, Concise, Short-spoken
This character typically speaks in very short sentences or sentence fragments, even in situations where most people would use full sentences

I would propose this through the normal mechanism, but the above names clash with several names of Taciturn. IMHO, those words aren't so suitable for that trait.

On a completely unrelated note, @rampaa,
Also, no, it would not apply to Houjou Satoko. She was wrapped with a towel, she has no nude CS/CG.
No, I'm pretty sure she *did* have a naked sprite in the original version of "Tatarigoroshi-hen", which appears after she drops the towel, but it was taken out of certain (most?) versions. MangaGamer addressed their removal of it at one point, it's been discussed here on VNDB, and I once ran across a screenshot of it.

@2078 Taciturn and Laconic are synonyms linkLast modified on 2020-03-28 at 05:22

Of course, I'm open to suggestions for other names, but I think those words better fit the trait I'm proposing than that other one. I don't think "taciturn" (basically, "silent") does, though. It may be considered a synonym, but that doesn't mean it has exactly the same meaning.

@fllthdcrb: Yes they have different meanings even if we don't want to reach that level of detail here in VNDB, telling that they are synonyms doesn't help.
The thing interesting here is that you want to propose it under Talking Patterns and it makes sense since:
Laconic is used to describe someone who communicates great meaning without using many words. It applies equally to speech patterns and styles of writing
For example we have also the term laconic phrase

Instead taciturn is "temperamentally disinclined to talk" the term doesn't go deep on how a person talks when he overcomes his temperament so it could not fall under "Talking Pattern".
But what bothers me is that we just changed Taciturn and that would mean splitting it up.

The other idea could be just propose "Laconism" under talking pattern.Last modified on 2020-03-28 at 06:08

I played the game with the PS3 graphics, so I might be wrong about that, and if I was wrong I'm sorry. I would appreciate it more if you could share the said screenshot though. I'm still doubtful whether or not we (the reader) see her completely naked (ie. visible nipples and/or genitals).

I can assure you we see her completely naked. There was quite a controversy that the updated graphics clothed her in a towel.
I don't have the screen now, but I doubt it will be hard to find it online.

Then it is my bad and thank you for correcting me. Though this does not change my stance regarding the aforementioned trait's usefulness. But I guess I will have to wait for Warfoki for that.

I'm gonna go ahead and propose traits for specifying whose child someone is.

^I think it's unneeded since in the far future there will be a character relations chart.

^Yeah, I didn't see your post until I'd done it, sorry.

Are the charts going to replace all the relationship traits?Last modified on 2020-03-28 at 16:41

I don't think so, I'm guessing it will use the existing traits but with "whose?" option beside it like when choosing a cast for a character, but that's only Yorhel to know.Last modified on 2020-03-28 at 16:49
