They could hear a very distinctive hissing that would just come and go. Of course, I never heard it; I have headphones on all the time. So the other person is freaking out that she's hearing this sound that I'm not.
Until it turns out that the snake goes ssssssssssfffFINALLY. I was making a sound at my computer when things were getting frustrating. Which I naturally didn't hear or know I was doing because I knew I was making a sound, but I'm no snake. Apparently I am!
Oh goddamn. I don't really have a perennial favorite, despite what my icons would suggest. So my current favorite!
Mordin Solus from Mass Effect 2, according to TVTropes, is paradoxically the Motor Mouth and the Terse Talker. A Youtube link will explain that. Mordin's another character I just loved as soon as I saw him. I knew from ME1 that if I got a salarian party member, they would be absolutely brutal and awesome. Mordin met my requirements and more. Despite being a certifiable badass in the game, where he shines is his backstory. He's very consequestialistic, believing that the ends matter more than the means. Healing people as a doctor helps; so does executing dangerous people. As part of his work earlier in life, he tweaks a genetic plague to keep a certain violent species in check. Even so, where he lacks some morals and abides by strict ethics, he's clearly trying to atone for the work he did, being very bothered by seeing the chaos and destruction his work brought about.
