The AT-43 blog has a new article looking at the ONI Daimyo John Priest unit.
From their website:
Design: Priest, a hero you’ll love to hate
His name is banal yet symbolic. Mothers want him for their daughters but you know he is bad to the bone. John Priest is certainly ONI’s most emblematic character.
John Priest was born in the first minutes we discussed the overall design of ONI. Everyone at the Rackham Entertainment editorial meeting smiled in agreement as we described his attitude, his clothing and his function. Like ONI, this guy is the unholy son of financial scandal, uncontrolled speculation and the economic crisis.
