Her exact motives in ordering the mercenary teams employed by both her companies into mortal combat on a regular basis remain mysterious. The Administrator is attended by a number of staff, including loyal assistant Miss Pauling and several messengers.

In my experience, Miss Pauling, nothing kills friendship faster After her assistant Miss Pauling brought it to her attention that the RED Demoman and BLU Soldier had become friends, she had communication channels opened up specifically to them both.

Through these, she personally encouraged each to kill their new friend in order to earn a mysterious and valuable new weapon developed under Mann Co.

Just as intended, this quickly destroyed their blossoming friendship and thus beginning the seven day war.

She gave them the undisclosed info, which included talk of her stockpiling Australium for years, and eighteen idiots to help her with it. The senators all were shocked by the story, and decided to end their questioning quickly afterwards. He's too stupid to divine our reasons for commissioning him. Too arrogant to listen to anything our mercs are actually telling him. And he records everything. Not intent on keeping him for long as she considers him to be a dupe and as sub-normal as the mercenaries, she gives the order to Miss Pauling to kill the director afterwards in a mine shaft.

After the mercenaries kill the messenger, she chastises them since the mini-television sets they carry are apparently extremely expensive, and warns them of the dangers of discussing the terms of their contracts with anyone. She does let them know that in this case, it was a rather absurd example and all gathered evidence — except the Soldier's heads — was destroyed.

She was later revealed to be giving orders to Miss Pauling, namely to gather all the fired mercenaries to search for the last Australium cache. The Engineer is also revealed to be most likely working for her, upgrading her machine to be more efficient, giving her enough time to "settle an old debt" if Helen is Emily and Elizabeth, that is.

Ancestry Because of the resemblances in appearance, habits, demeanor, and connections with the Mann family, Administrator Helen is presumed to be related to a woman named Elizabethportrayed in in Loose Canon with another woman portrayed inalso in the same issue. The three women played Redmond and Blutarch against each other for years while amassing the largest supply of Australium in the world.

The Administrator Helen kept the Mann family portrait on her control panel. Zepheniah Mann left his remaining fortune to Elizabeth with the hope that she would find the gravel he was unable to find.

Emily disclosed her search for Australium to Dell Conagher, perhaps the source of the map of Australium caches buried with Radigan Conagher. Zepheniah's final bequest to Elizabeth was the entirety of his cache of Australian "miracle" gravel with the instruction that she keep it secretparticularly from Gray Mann.

In a move that seems in keeping with a generational trust given to Elizabeth, Helen hid the Mann Co.

It started with a fan rendition by the artist Makaniwhich spread around the Internet, proving to be rather popular. The first video in the series released in MayMeet the Heavy, is almost word-for-word what Valve used to cast actor Gary Schwartz.

The video was made on the heels of a Portal video used to promote the personality of that game. After the first short was released, viewers praised both the quality of the animation and the humour of the script, likening it to productions by professional animation studios such as Pixar. Due to this highly positive reception, Valve announced plans to release a Meet the Team video for each individual class in the game, with possible side-features for items and non-player characters such as Meet the Sandvich.

Developer Robin Walker has stated that the shorts "tie in to the strategy we have with TF2 of continually updating the service What the videos do is give ways for people who don't even have Team Fortress 2 yet to get some entertainment from the game.


And that may turn them into TF2 players and customers. Game writer Eric Wolpaw said creating the series "helped everyone on the team get a little bit more in tune with who that particular character was, so we just kept knocking them out and they kept on being popular".

An example of the series' influence on the design of the game was the Sandvich. According to Walker, the item "came almost directly out of the movie We felt the movie had justified and created a way for us to have a 'Sandvich' in the game and have that action [of eating it] make any kind of sense in our game world". Another item to be introduced after its appearance in the series was Jarate which was added after its debut in Meet the Sniper.

The series also assisted in the development of game technology. Valve used Meet the Heavy to test the facial animation system the studio was developing for Team Fortress 2. According to Walker, the new system "allowed our characters to have a much greater range of expressions than we were able to do in Half-Life
