What’s the deal with Talbot, anyway? If any of the characters could have benefited from further development, it’s him.
What drives him? More than fortune or power, surely. While he appears to be merely human most of the time, at others he seems like some kind of voodoo shaman. For example, he seems to be particularly gifted at influencing others: On more than one occasion I found myself wondering what exactly he was whispering in Marlowe’s ear; not to mention the ease with which he commands the drugged Nate and Cutter to do his bidding (here, in fact, he seems to be communicating with Nate telepathically).
Oh, and what about the Tarot card found in Cutter’s pocket after Talbot and Marlowe corner him in Syria? And the way he appears and disappears seemingly at will? And how he is miraculously unharmed after being shot by Cutter?
Surely it’s no coincidence that he possesses the traits of the Djinn the game repeatedly refers to. Seriously, what’s up with this prick?(submitted via arockalypse-now)

  10. jess-simsthree said: i think the tarot cards were meant to reveal the superstitious nature of marlowe’s secret society! the game also states that they gain power and control through fear; what’s more terrifying than mystery, the unknown. hence talbot’s usage of illusion.
