When it comes to female Khajiit, there is no actor more authentic than Natalie Loftus. She absolutely nails it. She nailed it so hard it shattered the lumber and has left my face covered in splinters. Which is cool because I’ve always wanted to have a beard, just never knew how. Then Natalie nailed it, as Natalie tends to do.
Of course, the problem is, it seems nobody knows this but me, for the simple fact that Ms. Loftus is a very busy woman, and is not exactly keen on slavery, which is what the work essentially is. It’s murder on the throat and incredibly time-consuming and there are no rewards to speak of. So the basket full of Khajiit roles sits and waits in her inbox, and I’m okay with her taking all the time she needs, because I’m pretty sure I won’t find a better voice.
The question is, what to do with these characters in the meantime? It’s quite possible these roles will not be voiced until 2018, at which point I will already have moved on to writing Zora/Amalee slash-fiction. No one will want to voice these roles temporarily if it means they will eventually be sucked into Natalie’s gravitational vortex. Well, no one save me.
So, here is a sampling of what can be placeholder audio until these get recorded. If people can stomach it, I’ll record the rest and add it to an update. I can’t act, but I have a decent mic and an idea of what the inflections should sound like.
