Velvet Dark is Joanna Dark's assumed sister, and appears as a simulant or second player buddy in Perfect Dark's Co-op mode. She is unlocked by default, and carries a Falcon 2.


In-game, the AI Velvet behaves as a normal guard would; the only modifiers occur when the player uses the order menu to have her either be more aggressive (in which she will chase enemies to shoot them, instead of waiting for them to appear), or more passive (in which she will stay close to the player). If shot, no wound will appear. The player cannot hurt Velvet. When playing, she will shoot all enemies, regardless if they are surrendering or if you are in a stealth mission.

Leaked image of a new game called "Velvet Dark" - being a game which the protagonist is Joanna Dark's sister. The game was never released.

She is the only Co-Op partner in the campaign that can be controlled by the second player. When the Velvet player completes the last mission objective first, she will replace Joanna in the accompanying cutscene, and speak her lines. The playable Velvet changes costume per level just as Joanna does.

Voice Clips

As a player, Velvet's voice clips are shared with Joanna's during certain events, as well as in the opening and endings of a mission (due to her model replacing Joanna's if Velvet completes the mission before Joanna does), while still maintaining the generic female voice clips when being hurt by the enemy. When set as an AI, Velvet borrows a set of generic voice clips that's applied on Cassandra De Vries's Bodyguards that appear in the missions: dataDyne Central: Extraction, and in Mr. Blonde's Revenge. Unlike Cassandra's bodyguards, Velvet never has any lines of death being said when gunned down to prevent any shame upon the Player's Simulant's death.


Spotting / Attacking an Enemy

  • "Hey!"
  • "Hey! You! Come here!"
  • "Get her!"
  • "Come on!"
  • "Did that hurt?"
  • "You want some more?"

Missing the Enemy Target

  • "This gun is useless!"

Attacked by Enemy

  • "I'm wounded..."
  • "Help me out!"
  • "I'm in trouble!"


  • Due to her voice clips being shared, she will call out to her enemies as female regardless of gender or race due to the generic voice clips being meant to be used towards Joanna.
