so i was staring at this for what felt like forever, when one of the phrases in the article used as a back drop hit me: “Officer Dakota Fox…”
What if THIS was the reason Carmelita Fox became an officer? in the cooper wiki talking about her, it says that she was possibly affected by a crime at a young age, and that she is fourth generation INTERPOL.
what if her father was playing a game of cat and mouse with sly’s father, just like she is playing with Sly? What if her father and sly’s father developed a respect for each other after years of playing this game, as rivals tend to do? and what if, when news reached Mr. Fox about his old friend/rival/adversary’s death… he became consumed with solving the murder, feeling as though Mr. Cooper deserved better, and never could let it go even after retirement? in effect, causing Carmelita herself became consumed by trying to solve it because her father never could, thus trying to finish what he started? this would explain why she of all people had the file on the Fiendish Five, and why she is so driven to chase down Sly himself… idk food for thought for all you sly cooper fans
this piece is a VERY chilling look at one of the more brutal moments of the Sly Cooper franchise… and a reminder that just because a game is cartoony doesnt mean it cant be dark as FUCK. and in my opinion, the games are all very chilling, well written, and haunting pieces of art.
