Mirror s Edge GC

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst starts with Faith as a carefree runner. Experience her transformation into becoming a hero. She is stubborn and unwilling to go back on her mission, even in the face of dire danger. That is what makes Faith a unique hero. And the fact that she’s a woman, obviously.
