While I was working today I entertained myself by wondering what male characters would've made decent romantic interests in Quest for Glory 5 (if the hero could've been a lady, or if same-gender LIs had been allowed.) This contains spoilers for the entire game series, obviously.

It's not an easy question. I'm trying to stick to the same sorts of LIs that were actually in QfG5, who were single and young (or young-appearing) and human. And I'm finding there aren't a lot of options here.

QfG1: While Barnard von Speilberg might be an interesting option, I wouldn't be interested unless his storyline involved a lot of him getting over himself. (It would have to be a situation where he wasn't the Baron. Maybe there was some kind of revolt, I don't know. From what I gathered, he wasn't a popular leader.) I really can't think of any others.

QfG2: I'm drawing a blank... um. Ugarte, maybe?? Although certain scripted events in QfG5 would make that difficult. (It might help that you can save his life, though. And maybe part of his sidequest would involve helping him win his competition.)

QfG3: Yesufu would be a good one, if Johari hadn't randomly married him at the end of the game. (Although I would've romanced Johari if she'd been available, myself.) Honestly, he's the only young man I can even remember in that game.

QfG4: My first thought was Blackjack Davy (the one you save by rescuing Igor, and then you get your fortune told by his grandma in thanks.) And I really don't know the ages of anyone else in this game; most of them are married or otherwise unavailable.

QfG5: Drawing a blank here, at least on characters that were only introduced in this game. I can't even think of anyone that might be an alternate option to Katrina and Erana, at least not off the top of my head.

Of course, I for one would be all for having the ladies there too (as much as possible) and would probably pick Erana over all of them, if she was available. Still interesting to think about. (There are not many attractive men in this series. Lost of girls, but no guys. I'm not horribly surprised, though.)
