If depending on who's walking sprite is out do certain NPCs dialogues change? If so your MC should just be like. "Do you even lift?" Then proceed to have a weightlifting mini game :D
I did have it so that you'd get different reactions from the group leader depending on who would be on point, but I've changed it so that Zephyr is always the character that the player controls when visiting Bacchus Garrison. I did this so that things such as the Biggs & Wedge side quests would flow/work better.
