So, yeah, Zefonith's not male any more than Partasah was. ( And, on that note, Gilou isn't female. ) The other characters know this, which is why you're not getting dialogue like, "I gave birth to him which is possible because I am a humanoid alien hermaphrodite!
" It'd be like a human saying, "I gave birth to him, which is possible because I am a woman!
He's also fun to draw. The usual linkback.
