@JacobSKellogg I'm not comfortable answering that or making suggestions. You're dealing with something very far outside my experience as a creative (I'm a writer, so clearly defined characters are central to everything I do) and I am white so can only speak to what I have been told.
My own marginalizations are usually invisible. They just wouldn't come up at all in the kind of video game you are talking about.
Def reach out to any PoC you know who are willing to discuss this kind of thing.
