    Really? Just couldn’t create a new character? Lazy. Lazy and pandering. Insulting the fandom of EVERY race and all of our intelligence in the name of political correctness.

    I really like that she finally got her own identity and shows a side of Sicilia we never really saw in the media before. 🙂
