Fragile, at some point, offers Sam a job working for her, noting how hard it must be for him on his own in the world.
At another point, Fragile again meets Sam, just as BTs begin manifesting near him. After the entities leave, she sheds a tear and, with Sam, watches as five floating figures survey from the sky momentarily until they disappear. Afterwards, she warns Sam to be mindful of the mysterious entities' return and remarks that timefall cannot wash everything away – the ever-clinging past in particular – before departing.
Fragile portrays herself as controlled and intelligent, shown when she tells Sam to be quiet while under threat from BTs, clearly knowing how to effectively deal with them in a calm fashion. She also remains at ease when she is captured by the Homo Demens, despite being held at gunpoint.
- Fragile was first introduced in the E3 2018 trailer.
- Hideo Kojima has revealed that Fragile is a homage to Mary Poppins.
- Kojima originally contacted Stefanie Joosten for the role of Fragile. However, he never followed up on the potential casting, and would instead cast Léa Seydoux for the role.
