It'd be worth noting that if you side with ashur, you can kill Midea before you ask her about wherner's location and get a note off her body divulging the location of wherner.

No need. There is a note on a clipboard on her desk revealing Wernehr's location. You don't have to kill her. --207.118.127.30 01:33, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but who checks the containers around a room before looting the person you just shot for fun. Though the desk note eliminates the need to kill or ask her, both of which may be considered karma choices(Not so much on the asking, though.)

A little glitch[edit source]

The second time I had to go talk to her In mid conversation her right eye disapeared and you could see the wall behind he thrue it. The eye came back after the conversation. I think this glitch can happen to any NCP thoe. Did this happen to anyone else?--Radraider 20:18, October 20, 2009 (UTC)

Midea mythlogy[edit source]

Although this contribution was deleted:

Midea is likely a play on the name Medea from Greek mythology. She is an insider who helps Jason and his Argonauts on their quest for the Golden Fleece, very much like how she helps the Lone Wanderer in The Pitt. Further references are from the tragedy "The Medea" in which she murders her own children (from Jason) and flees because he married into royalty leaving her with nothing, but promised her that nothing would change, similar to how she has no remorse to kidnapping (or otherwise) Marie to ensure her own survival, even though Ashur insists that the cure would be given to everyone.

I came here to make a very similar comment. It seems to be a clear reference. This was an element that made me waver in my commitment to help Wernher---Medea is not a pleasant character in Greek myth.

Well, I don't see how "no remorse to kidnapping (or otherwise) Marie to ensure her own survival" is at all similar to "murders her own children (from Jason) and flees because he married into royalty leaving her with nothing"
I also don't see why "Midea" would be spelled differently from "Medea" if it was meant to be a reference.
And, please sign your posts. It makes discussions like this more civilized.--Gothemasticator 21:38, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
Not to be argumentative, but they didn't really use our alphabet, so the spelling differences aren't a very strong indicator. I think the story correlations are pretty strong (stronger than "only child"="Jesus", at least), so i'm for putting it back in. 72.49.194.36 20:15, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
It's not the Greek spelling we're talking about. English (both American and British) spelling of the name of the character from the Greek play has been without variation Medea for at least a couple hundred years. And you say you think the story correlations are pretty strong. I've just explained my stance above. You're going to have to get specific if you want to advance an argument.--Gothemasticator 20:30, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
By the way, "only child=Jesus" is not the justification for the Jesus reference. Just read what is written in the Behind the scenes section. The quoted dialogue itself is the reference.--Gothemasticator 20:31, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
