An Otome Game Heroine Dream

As the release date for Norn9 approaches (I'm very excited), one thing in particular has been on my mind: A heroine with multiple personalities.

However, I don't mean a heroine with split personalities. This has been something I've always wanted to put in motion since I seriously began playing otome games. My current dream is to make a heroine with a personality that you can choose.

In almost every otome game, the heroines align to the Japanese standard of the ideal girl. They're cute, sweet, soft-spoken, polite, normal, and in the case of R18 games, completely innocent virgins. That's totally fine for some, but to my "outspoken" American personality, I'd like a heroine with a little more backbone. I'm not one of the people who projects themselves on a heroine, so I would rather feel like I'm reading along with that character instead.

Norn9 will do something similar, but each character can only pursue certain guys, which is definitely not what I want. I'd like you to be able to choose personality at the opening of the game, and be able to pursue all the characters. Coding-wise, I could see it as possible, if not tricky, however, I can't tell if it's ever been done before.

I'm sure I'm probably not the only one who would like this, or if anyone has examples of games like this, or similar, it would be greatly appreciated.
