Guys I choking even Naoto Ohshima isn't sure of Pelon's gender. He said he'll check for me.

If the motherfucking director for BLiNX 2 doesn't know if Pelon's male or female, I say it's up in the air.  Kind of curious as to who he's even checking with and how that random question would come across.

"Hey, remember that game we worked on thirteen years ago?  Do you remember one of the minor support characters?  I can't even tell if it's a guy or a girl."

Granted he probably hasn't thought about Pelon in years but obviously knows that Pelon was the initial name of the project. You'd still expect him to know though. I guess he would have to ask someone who worked in Artoon, who may be in Arzest now. Someone in the US who worked with Blinx 2 may also know but Ed Fries saw my tweet and didn't reply to me so even the US side seems uncertain.

It amuses me that I may have prompted Ohshima to ask that kind of question. My reasons are purely selfish but I'm tempted to draw him a picture of Pelon to push him to get the answer for me.

Maybe we just have to accept that Pelon's gender is undetermined and purely to inturpretation. That's part of Pelon's character now even if we did find out his true gender. But I want to know while I have this opportunity!

Well, at least the androgyny gives Pelon something unique.  Kind of hard to find details in the side characters to cling to and imagine as actually affecting them in any way (actually, that kind of applies to Blinx, too, which is probably part of what led to us poking fun at the piercings so much).

I am very amused that nobody seems to know, though.  Not remembering the character could easily be the main reason, but I find a certain humour in a random character accidentally being so androgynous in voice and appearance that not even the devs know if they're male or female.
