De Cava and the Voodoo Lady

Hi, everybody!

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but after playing the absolutely fantastic episode 3 (best one so far), I started thinking about DeCava and the Voodoo Lady's relationship...

Remember those dwarings showing a skinny and sexy version of the Voodoo Lady? Well, if DeCava is suppossed to be Don Quijote... Could it be that he sees the Voodoo Lady in a way that she really isn't? Just like Don Quixote and Dulcinea.

Thoughts? Opinions? Destructive criticism? :P

  • Well I suppose the Voodoo Lady used to be skinnier; DeCava mentioned that they used to walk around in the market. Years of doing things by Voodoo remote control had turned her into a mountain of flesh.
  • Voodoo Lady circa MI 1 and 2 was person-sized. The pictures don't show her as actually thin.

    Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

    Or anyway, someone who thinks like me. When I saw De Cava, I immediately thought, 'hey, that guy is like Don Quijote!' His 'relationship' with the Voodoo Lady, who may not actually be that much in love with him certainly recalls how Don Quijote sees his Dulcinea. And the way that she sends him on quests is like Don Quijote's knight-errantry, going on all sorts of (silly) quests. And lastly, he treats Guybrush a bit like his own Sancho Panza... hmm, you could even say that De Cava's ship is like Rocinante, old but trusty... although that might be pushing it a bit. But I can definitely see some parallels. Hopefully De Cava will return in future episodes, I really really like that guy. :)
  • Wow TellTale must be very literate
  • DeCava, ditch the Voodoo Lady and get Kate Kapsize!

    or the harber mistress
  • Don Quijote... Brilliant. Don't see how I missed it. Will we be seeing a Munchhausen? :D

    Well, Guybrush shot himself out of a cannon in MI1... that's close enough for me :D

    But Guybrush DID actually shoot himself out of a cannon. TWICE!
  • Oh, maybe we'd see him do it again. Flotsam winds and all that.
