According to the Borderlands Wiki, Angel's mother is unidentified.
Angel is the daughter of Hyperion programmer Handsome Jack. The identity of her mother remains unknown, but her absence from Angel's life is reportedly a result of Angel's Siren powers.
I would heavily recommend playing them in release order, with Borderlands 2 before the Pre-Sequel, even though most of the events in the Pre-sequel take place before Borderlands 2 (as it's told as a flashback)
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Tales from the Borderlands
Per the Steam store page (emphasis mine):
Discover the story behind Borderlands 2 villain, Handsome Jack, and
his rise to power. Taking place between the original Borderlands and
Borderlands 2, the Pre-Sequel gives you a whole lotta new gameplay
featuring the genre blending fusion of shooter and RPG mechanics that
players have come to love.
Yes and no. Pandora as a planet does not appear to actually cause insanity. However, The Vault appears to have a psychosis-inducing effect, evidenced by the Psychos and the vault symbols etched into...just about everything.
The Vault's insane-ifying effects seem apparent due to the Psychos and the Borderlands Wikia points to the Headstone Mine incident as a ...
The elements from BL1 are unchanged, so shock is good versus blue shield bars, fire against red health bars, and corrosive against yellow armor bars. There's also explosive, which is sort of an all around element. Slag has been added, and it increases the damage taken from other weapons instead of causing a damage-over-time effect.
The Commando class has ...
My best guess is that Terra's massive growth is due to exposure to Eridium or slag.
For example, Bloodwing was exposed to a lot of slag at the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve, and grew very large in a short amount of time.
Tannis gives you some hints to this when she tells you the history of Dahl and Atlas and the like.
The bandits you fight out there used to be family men,
workers, scientists... We're all broken because of them.
These big corporations brought people in, then just abandoned them. It's easy to get to Pandora when your company deploys you there, and much ...
I don t know how the game will handle your save file if you don t have DLC installed. BUT!
You have the DLC on disk, just bring them and install them on your friends's PS3, it is legal and will work.
This way, no need to worry about version of PS3 software, Game version, your friends will have the same DLC as you, and the save will work : )
(Also, your ...
In the Pre-Sequel, Handsome Jack was really nice. Had nothing really wrong with him. But he came to Pandora, and decides the best way to stabilise the planet is to kill everyone who appears insane! With the way he talks in BL2, it's clear something happened to Jack, and same goes for others on Pandora. But remember, people were the same on Elpis.
Initially, Lilith is the only known siren. However, there was some fan speculation that Commander Steele was also a siren (later confirmed in the Origins comic books), due to her having similar tattoos as Lilith.
Borderlands 2 introduced Maya and revealed Angel to be a siren. It also included the idea of there being (only) 6 sirens in the universe. ...
If I understand your question correctly, you wish to play Borderlands on your Xbox One, by borrowing it from a friend who only has an Xbox 360.
If that is the case - yes, you can play it. There is a set list of games that the Xbox One is compatible with from the Xbox 360, and Borderlands 1, and 2 are on that list.
However, if you are talking about the ...
Could be Steele. She was also a siren and Angel basically lured steele into opening the vault first to be killed by the destroyer. could be what Jack means by "you didn't see what she did to her mother.
Borderlands: The Presequel is between Borderlands 2 (the sequel) and Borderlands 1.
And here's a quote from Tales from the Borderlands FAQ:
(5) When and where in the Borderlands timeline is this game set?
During the Tales from the Borderlands SXSW panel, it was mentioned
that the game takes place in Pandora after Borderlands 2 and its DLC.
Your first guess was correct. It is (in all bar the title) Borderlands 1.5.
I can't speak for the dev's on this one, sadly because I'm not on the team, but I would say it would be for reasons to do with the storyline. What and why exactly I cannot say.
The low number of peaceful people compared to psychos is, most likely, a game mechanic. I.e. the game is a shooter, so it needs hordes or respawning enemies, and pretty much doesn't need any civilians beside Marcus, so there are just a few.
The line between NPCs and enemies is more blurry than "real humans or not" - Marauders are human, you can't even call ...
