Rainbow Six Siege gets its first openly gay character

Ubisoft has been adding new playable operators to Rainbow Six Siege for a number of years now. As a result, the game features a pretty diverse cast of characters. Although the multiplayer shooter doesn’t place much of a focus on narrative, its characters do each come with some lore to help ground them in the game’s universe. This has led to players becoming increasingly interested in Flores’ sexuality. So, is Flores gay in Rainbow Six Siege? Here’s the need-to-know.

Rainbow Six Siege: Is Flores gay?

Is Flores gay in Rainbow Six Siege?

Yes, Rainbow Six Siege operator Flores is gay.

An in-game report states that Flores is married to another man. Flores shows constant dedication to the relationship, calling his husband each and every night to catch up and never letting his wedding ring leave his person.

Here’s an excerpt from the in-game document:

“Every night [Flores] calls home to talk to his husband, but he’s very private about their relationship (with me at least). He cares about people in general, but his marriage is on another level. Even when he takes off his ring, it never leaves his person.”

Flores is also a master thief, which helps to set him further apart from the rest of the cast. He doesn’t share a similar militaristic background to the other operators — instead, he’s a reformed criminal.

The attacking operator has style to boot, showing off his groomed facial hair while accessorizing with a flat cap and tinted shades. Flores definitely exudes more personality in his appearance than many of the operators kitted out in heavy tactical gear.

Elsewhere in the world of gaming, Resident Evil 4 VR is set to be the first Oculus Quest 2 exclusive. Previously, Facebook and Oculus have ensured content parity between both Quest devices.

People Can Fly, the team behind Outriders, is granting free gifts as an apology for the game’s turbulent launch.
