Big Daddy notes:
-Big Daddies are hulking bio-mechanical monsters with the primary purpose of protecting little sisters. They are encased in enlarged diving suits, armed with either a large drill, rivet gun, or a shoulder-operated grenade launcher, An earlier, failed line of big daddies, dubbed the "Alpha series" have access to an arsenal of weapons, including: The drill (witch is detachable and goes over the hand), the rivet gun, the machine gun, the spear gun, the shotgun, and the grenade launcher. The Alpha series also have to ability to use plasmids, this versitility sacrifices some of the armor that the later big daddy models (Bouncer, Rosie, Rumbler) have. These big daddies have been mentally conditioned by the late Dr. Suchong, who was impaled by a unknowingly bonded big daddy when he hurt the daddy's little sister. The big daddies are seen as golden knights by the little sisters, and are all seen as the same person by them.
