Naoya looks like a pretty boy but has the strength of a fuckin’ Ox.
The Countess (S.P.H.I.N.X)
The Countess was the second in command under SPHINX Lord Commander and the strongest fighter in S.P.H.I.N.X on account of her strength suit. She was in a relationship with the Lord Commander but separated from him during the Pyramid Wars. We now know that the Pyramid Wars were orchestrated by the Guild of Calamitous Intent to avoid backlash for their involvement in Gargantua One. We know that the Lord Commander as we knew him was a delusional old man. His mental instability may have started during the Pyramid Wars when OSI started gunning after them. So it is theoretical to assume that the Pyrmaid Wars may have played a part in the Countess leaving the Lord Commander. The Countess may have defected to avoid getting slaughtered by OSI who to this day thinks fondly of their part of the Pyramid Wars. Pictured is Hank in the Countesses’s strength suit.
Now retired and living civilian life, Theresa is the person behind the powerhouse the Countess. Not much is known about her other than that she is being stalked by her ex-partner Michael, also known as the Lord Commander. She has a shrill voice like Michael and dresses in dark colours. She doesn’t seem too impressed to see him but doesn’t seem threatened. She is probably stronger then him and would beat him in a fight because the strength suit was programmed not to ‘hurt her man’. She lives in a massive house in a nice neighbourhood so is likely wealthy.
Unknown Woman (Civilian)
This unknown woman was aboard the Gargantua Two during the launch party and has a striking resemblance to Theresa, the former Countess. If this is her, it may further back the claim she defected to protect herself from OSI and is now considered a non-threatening civilian. Perhaps she reinvented herself and runs a successful science or technology business and that is why she was invited to Jonas Venture Jnr’s party. She was seen evacuating so she may have survived the Gargantua Two explosion. She has gold braclets on which could be a nod to the Countess.
