Lucy was always the prettier, flashier one. Mina was the smart, sensible one.
Well, back in college I had a really gorgeous theater-major friend who played Mina in an original musical, so maybe that colors my perceptions. Perhaps she was cast in the wrong role? But it was the lead role of the play, so I'm not going to complain.

Anyway, even if Mina's not supposed to be as flashy, at least she should be appealing as a person, and De Gouw doesn't really achieve that for me, not from what I've seen so far, anyway.
