  • The player can determine whom the mother of Rich Knights shall be. If the player does not take Cordelia for the "Infiltrate! Alexei Gang" quest, then she will become his future wife. If the player takes Cordelia, then she will die and Labelle will become Wil's wife. The authors admit that they originally did intend to make Labelle the canonical wife of Wil, but with how little developement time Labelle was given in the story, it's no surprise that most fans of the game can only imagine Cordelia to be alongside Wil.
