what's up with nell and sami?

Postby delpo » Mon Sep 16, 2013 7:18 pm

just beat aw1 for the second time, and I'm confused about nell and sami. I don't understand why sami is nell's bitch just because nell is smarter than her. they're both CO's and, therefore, of the same rank, right?

Nell is actually the Commander in Chief - She's the head of the Military in Orange Star.

So she does outrank Sami.

Commanding Officer is also not a rank.

It's just a term to denote someone who's in command of a unit.

Two CO's can perfectly well hold different ranks, as they did in AW4 (Brenner was a captain while Lin was lieutenant IIRC).

From what I understand, they are of similar age and apparently went to military school/academy together (though it's not said whether they were in the same year). So Sami might be a tad bitter Nell got a faster track to the top?
