Don’t you get that war master and dark bishop are male only characters

For those looking for a wonderful mixed tank, consider Flayn. Coupling with her incredibly natural res growth, she ends the game with the same res and def. Combine with Bolt axe and killer axe. She solos maps. She's unstoppable

My biggest complaint is that Mercedes is not a luxury car in the base game.
Hopefully in the DLC, though...
