Velvet Dark appears as a Simulant or second player Buddy in Perfect Dark's Co-op mode. She is unlocked by default, and carries a Falcon 2. She is presumably Joanna's sister.

Analysis

In-game, the AI Velvet behaves as a normal guard would; the only modifiers occur when the player uses the order menu to have her either be more aggressive (in which she will chase enemies to shoot them, instead of waiting for them to appear), or more passive (in which she will stay close to the player). If shot, no wound will appear and the player cannot hurt Velvet (when Friendly Fire is off). When playing, she will attack all enemies, regardless if they are surrendering or if you are in a stealth mission, which applies to all Buddies.

She is the only Co-Op partner in the campaign that can be controlled by the second player. When the Velvet player completes the last mission objective first or if Joanna dies, she will replace her in the accompanying cutscene, and speak her lines. The playable Velvet changes costume per level just as Joanna does.

Voice Clips

As a player, Velvet's voice clips are shared with Joanna's during certain events, as well as in the opening and endings of a mission (due to her model being the same as Joanna's), while still maintaining the generic female voice clips when being damaged by the enemy. When set as an AI, Velvet borrows the set of generic voice clips that's applied on Cassandra De Vries's Bodyguards that appear in the missions: dataDyne Central: Extraction, and in Mr. Blonde's Revenge. Unlike Cassandra's bodyguards, Velvet never has any lines of death being said when gunned down to prevent any shame upon the player's ally's death.
