She's the average, well-rounded character that's been ignored in video games for generations, akin to Sion Barzahd in The Bouncer or Mario in Super Mario Bros. 2. Except that in these two cases, the average character as least has the advantage of being the main focal point for the game's storyline; Latisha has no such advantage.
