I haven't seen the original, but I was surprised the new one I actually like and was good. Warning SpoilERS!!
Kevin Flynn: A DA SEI programmer who creates a modified copy of himself: Clue. He always see the other counterpoint, plus his whole zen like mindset. Has become relatively inert. Reminds me of Phil Jackson. Could also be ILE.
Tron: I think the original programmer who was Tron is ILE. Just a guess. Considered LSI or SLE too.
Clue: Tentatively typing clue SEI or EIE... others considered: LSI, ILE, LSE. His aim is "perfection" of the system. A closed loop. Which makes me think he's a DA or CD. Flynn made a mistake in creation and disregarded VS possiblities, which leads to the destruction of the ISO's.
There is also some obvious comparison to ******. Which would make Clue the EIE(LSI alt) supervisor and share a DA (CD alt) style but much more forceful and active in his values.
Cora: A vortical-synergistic creation of the Grid due to its design. Her type is.....IDK she still seems like a new creation, gullible and childlike. Partially programmed? A VS created VS?
Sam Flynn: ILE?SLE? IDK KFlynn and Clue seem the easiest to type, they are the most developed. A bit rash in his actions, doesn't see the counterpoints, just attacks opportunities. He goes straight towards the obvious solutions to what he wants.
Zuse: A player, very flamboyant, "plays all the angles" to survive and benefit. EIE?
