Nowi is a Manakete(Dragon in human form) from Fire Emblem Awakening. Nowi is a controversial character due to her skimpy outfit combined with her young age as a dragon as she is proportionately 14 at most, though the localization makes Nowi act more mature to downplay the controversy.

This is made much more controversial due to the player being encouraged to marry Nowi off to other units and have children which if spoofed in this webcomic. While Now is first encountered captured, it is revealed Nowi made the outfit herself and wears it of her free will.

A Male of the same race and class for comparison.

Anyone up for a bingo?

Bingo you say?

Now, of course, there’s the argument that I’m sure will be coming about it being her choice, or her being a dragon so she doesn’t need protection, yadda yadda yadda.

Ultimately though, it’s very simple: If the most creative approach someone can take to a character concept such as a dragon in human form and decide it’s a “get out of criticism free card” for a worryingly sexualized teenage girl – then it’s safe to say the fluff was never really a big concern to you.
