Okay this is kind of a theory, but it's mainly a question that's been on my mind for quite sometime. To this day, I never really understood the dynamic between The Sole Survivor and Preston Garvey in regards to their roles within The Minutemen. Like even though "officially" The Sole Survivor is supposed to be The General, while Preston serves as the right hand man to said "General", it feels and seems like it's the other way around. I mean seriously, most of the time it's Preston ordering The Sole Survivor (YOU) around to go save some settlements, while he just simply lays back and bums around Sanctuary! You know, I wonder if this was Preston's plan all along, to have somebody be the figurehead, the face of The Minutemen while he, (being the actual General) leads them from the shadows via the in-name only General in The Sole Survivor. Oh, and he also doesn't have to do the heavy lifting when it comes to things like making the tough decisions. That's up to "The General" to deal with! I don't know, what do you guys think? I know this post is kind of a ramble, but I've been wanting to know some other people's thoughts on this topic. So what is it then, is The Sole Survivor nothing but a puppet for Preston Garvey?
