Oh boy, you asked for it!
Since I suck at actually playing these games, I’ll only talk about these two elements.
Welcome to Fashionlands, these are my latest outfits!
"A*s-kicking outfit: (I hope someone gets the reference)
This is what I usually wear, I love that skin and head combination.
Wedding suit (for Sir Hammy Hammy's ceremony):
A bit generic, but I still appreciate it.
Gehenna desperado (Bounty of Blood outfit):
A bit too flashy, but I like the touch of green. Also I know that the Takedown will come out first, and I’ll look like an idiot floating through space with a cowboy costume, but whatever.
Also, this is my usual room decoration setup:
It’s basically a trophy room with boss memorabilia (Killavolt’s shield is also an option).
And this is my room for Bounty of Blood:
Finally this is my usual trinket arrangement:
The Rakk Hive is because Fl4k are lovers of animals, the Eye of Katagawa is another boss trophy, and both Mordecai’s skull and Zer0’s…zero are tokens of appreciation to other snipers, as well as my previous mains. I didn’t use Beast Bowl or Lil’ Chomper because those can already be on the character model.
And this is the one going into DLC 3:
The Jakobs logo is a no-brainer, the Anshin one is because of some Eastern imagery and Anshin itself might even be involved, the gold plate seemed fitting and Butt Stallion’s tail…is because she’s a horse? Dunno…
Also, what did you name your pets? At the moment, mine are:
- skag: Carlo (it’s a running joke with my friends to call characters in that way)
- jabber: Gary (so I can scream Alani’s best quote whenever I use the attack command)
- spiderant: Helena (in honor of Pierce)
Basically all we know about Fl4k comes from their personal ECHO-log:
What we can deduce is that, at some point, they somehow left the Grand Archivist and started travelling the galaxy, having been to at least Pandora before Borderlands 3. In their travels, Fl4k rescued and helped various injured animals (his three pets and an unclear number of rakks). Here are some interesting facts:
When their lives are in danger, they sometimes talk about some sort of guilt for an unknown event, and that they can’t go back to “them” until that is fixed, probably by doing Death’s bidding. The Grand Archivist refers to Fl4k as an indexing unit, but they repeat multiple times that they’re “the only ones of their kind in the universe”. Is it possible that many robots identical to Fl4k used to work inside this “Grand Archive”, but then they (inadvertedly or purposely) were destroyed by Fl4k?
Fl4k not only looks like immortality-suit Loader-bot, but also like Tiffany (if you don’t know her, check out this thread):
This old reddit post I saw talks about the interpretation of Fl4k’s BL2 ECHO-log and the possibility that they used to have some sandworm pets. What do you think?
The BL2 ECHO-log makes it seem like Fl4k were on Pandora around the time of the Fight for Sanctuary; yet, after killing Shiv, they’re surprised about how savage Pandora’s humans are.
