First unveiled in a trailer for Uncharted 4 at the 2015 Game Awards, Nadine has caught our attention ever since. Those of you who have played Nathan Drake's latest outing will know about the South African mercenary, or maybe you weren't playing close enough attention, here's five fun facts about Uncharted 4's beautiful Nadine Ross.
Nadine Can Probably Kick Your Ass
Appearances can be deceiving, especially in the case of Nadine. Despite her innocent looks, she's a highly skilled and impressive martial arts expert who exceeds in hand to hand combat. Nadine's easily able to hold her own against Nathan Drake and Sam in one instance, both of whom are much larger in stature than she is.
She Controls an Army of Powerful Men
Not only is Nadine a ruthless mercenary but she also controls a private military company called Shoreline, an army that was originally controlled by her father who has since passed away. Once he died Nadine took charge of the private company and became it's new leader, her army takes on various security and military contracts globally.
Nadine's a Very Important Character in Uncharted 4
Nadine's the secondary antagonist in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, meaning she's a pretty important character in the game and not some insignificant pest that Nathan Drake drops with ease. Throughout Uncharted 4, Nadine and her army of men assist Rafe Adler in his quest to find the mythological pirate settlement of Libertalia.
Nadine is The Only Major Antagonist to Survive In Uncharted.
After Naughty Dog killed off all their black characters in The Last of Us (2013), we could only imagine the worst possible outcome for Nadine in A Thief's End, but ironically Nadine is the only major villain in the series to survive. (We love it!)
She's Voiced by Laura Bailey
Although Nadine Ross is a South African woman, she is in fact voiced by Laura Bailey, a White American voice actress. This sparked understandable controversy as some people felt that Nadine should have been voiced by a black voice actor. Nevertheless Naughty Dog defended their decision in casting Laura Bailey for a black role.
