    I had this random idea of Neo having a British accent and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since. Am I the only one who thinks it would suit her? What if Ellie became her voice actress? 


    Bear in mind that this is if she gets a voice. Honestly, I'd prefer her silent for the rest of the show, but the idea of a British Neo is becoming quite appealing too...

    Well, like many — I'd prefer she remain silent.  That's part of her charm.  That being said, if she were to get a voice, Ellie wouldn't be a bad choice.

    Are you imagining her as an evil Mary Poppins?

    Neo is adorable. I feel like a british voice would add sexiness and I like adorable Neo more.

    She'll never not be adorable though, unless something most of us wouldn't appreciate were to happen. Also it depends on the tone they give her. I don't think a Cinder-y tone would suit her (F U CINDER BTW) but you can get many other ones that don't sound what is generally considered sexy at all (eg. Ilia - just an example). Just like in American English, there are many different voices someone can use in British English too. I guess it's down to personal preference and interpretation though...

    Actually I haven't watched Mary Poppins yet. It's on my list but I've never sat down to do so. But with what limited knowledge I have about her and the movie, that sounds fun XD

    As a brit i know their are many british accents that would be horrible for her to have. Actual cockney and scouse being the worst. After mentioning Mary Poppins i remembered Guardians of the galaxy 2... not sure which Mary Poppins i would want her too be like :)

    Lol imagine Neo going full Brummie on Salem XD

    "Y'alright bab? Good. Not for long though, I know what you did to Roman. I'LL MAKE YOU MY FISH AND CHIPS"

    Harry Potter also offers a few other examples. Like, Hermione's feels light and then you have dear Snape.

    A really bad accent might explain why she dose not speak much. I liked the idea of her being a mute character, but the idea of her just having a bad accent and trying to hide it is rather funny.

    Oh wow. Never thought of it like that XD 

    The plot twist though... that would be amazing. Imagine if it's next one in their plot twist agenda.

    More likely she is the one on the other end of the grimm jellyfish last volume. The one looking for the fall maiden vault at beacon.

    We see her use the umbrella/parasol to slow her fall when Roman looks over the edge. So the question was not if the fall killed her but if one of the many flying grimm decided to go for a mid air snack while she she was failing. 


    That said i don't think their is a plan to bring Neo back into the series at this point.

    The Grimm wouldn't be attracted to her if she was to stay calm (negative emotions and all that), but we never know, the girl may be scared of heights (unlikely)...

    Also, she could use her semblence (on the wiki it says it's illusion but idk how official that is) and she could make it appear as if she isn't there at all to evade the Grimm until she lands. Aura taking the hit quite a good point, but with her size and weight, taking into account the durability of her umbrella (Seriously, where do you find an umbrella that strong? Can i have one?) she might've Mary Poppinsed it
