LOOK, I’m just excited I can finally translate things from the Official Data File because, again, I finished translating all of Gilles’ volumes, ohohoho. The only reason I haven’t done it for the other men is because I want to spoil Arlen first, but every time I look at Arlen I burst into tears so I can’t get anywhere LOL.
Anyway, when they were preparing this ODF, they asked the fans to send questions and they picked a few of them to answer in the ODF. Surprisingly, Gilles was so popular that even though we knew nothing about him at the time (the ODF was released just after the first season) he still got a section. Even Mikado is touched at how Gilles, who started off as a nobody with just a name in Arlen’s Double Down CD, ended up becoming a whole character.
Well, let’s see what our watchdog has to say!
Q: Tell us about Arlen’s chauffeur!
A: You’re referring to me, I see. I’m Gilles. My full name is Gilles Lagrene. I have just a little French blood in me. So far as it goes, I’ve become Arlen’s aide but you can think of me as a jack of all trades and I do anything from chauffeuring to being a bodyguard to miscellaneous tasks.
Q: Is there any part of the boss you’d like him to fix that you can’t say to him?
A: On rare occasions, he heads out alone without a bodyguard and I would appreciate it if he stopped that. I’ll be in trouble if that person dies.
Q: I want to know what Gilles likes! For example, your favorite food or your favorite movie. Anything is fine, I just want to know!
A: If we’re talking about Japanese food then I like sushi. Arlen dislikes raw fish so, unfortunately, there aren’t many opportunities for me to go and eat that. For movies, I prefer action ones I can enjoy without having to think about anything.
Q: I know Arlen is, to Gilles, your superior but were there any times you wanted to be cut some slack, even if it was Arlen’s orders? Please continue to do your best and not lose to your boss, who asks for unreasonable things!
A: That person’s orders to withdraw from a location are always rushed. Even when we decided to abandon the high-rise apartment building, the extension of time I was given to destroy evidence and remove all the data was only around 6 hours. Then, like that, I had to secure a helicopter for escape and carry that injured person… that was pretty rough even for me.
