I agree that talking to upstream is unlikely to help. If they thought replacing a neutral character with Sara was a good idea then they are not likely to see any issues with Sara. They like her and want her in the game. I think they will continue to head more in this direction no matter what any of us might say. They are altering the basic nature of the game from a children's game to a teen or adult male game, they are doing so deliberately, and if a fork to preserve the children's nature of the game is not possible then the game should not be included in Debian anymore.
