Because we haven't seen any ambiguously gendered, long-haired male characters yet, and this is a JRPG parody, so Ione could potentially fit the bill? Honestly, I'm beginning to like this theory myself, although I am getting a fairly female vibe.

I see what you mean, but honestly this isn't strictly a JRPG parody. It's a console RPG parody. A lot of those just happen to be japanese.

indeed. and i will get angry if legendary starts to heavily parody FFXII or other games that are on console but aren't viewed as console games by humble me.
yeah. (no need to argue with that point, it is kinda silly. but only kinda.)

In other news, yeah, Ione looks like a girl, sounds like a girl and behaves like a (stereotypical) girl (as written by a guy). That's why it would be a better parody/satire of a large portion of them console RPGs if it turned out to be a guy after all.

Eh wot? I dunno how she behaves like a girl... but I suppose my lack of RPGs really outside of Dragon Warrior might explain that. And Golden Sun. And Megaman BN. Feh.

I have a question.

Also, I don't see anything stereotypically girly about Ione, although (s)he is polite, reserved, and tends to be smarter than the men around her, like many female RPG characters. Anyway, I'm sure we'll find out soon. I mean, it's not like Legendary is the kind of jerk who would keep a major named character cloaked and hooded for 182 strips. Or purposefully make a character gender-ambiguous for the sake of irritating his forum-goers. Or draw stick figures and call them art. Wait.

I seriously don't think ElfLad would do any of those things. He is above that...






OR IS HE????
