I had no idea what my representative of The Legion faction from Fallout: New Vegas was going to look like before I drew him, but I'm thrilled with the results.

The Legion are basically what you would get if someone ambitious, capable, and a fan of Roman history were to interpret "I don't want to survive, I want to live" as embracing misogynist warrior culture.

Now, some people might be used to people being a little quick on the draw when it comes to accusing people of misogyny, and might reflexively assume I'm blowing that aspect of things out of proportion. I am not. The Legion completely subjugate women and treat them as slaves. The opposing NCR even has a recruitment poster that says every woman in the NCR army is a slap in the face of The Legion's leader.

Which makes it somewhat bizarre that they're even willing to deal with the player character at all when they're female. Regardless of character sex, you can side with them as a faction and complete the game as their ally. I have no idea why anyone would want to do that short of being a completionist who wants to do every quest in the game in every way possible, but it's an option.
