View Full Version : Is Your White Mage a Male or Female?

10-16-2011, 06:29 AM

I named my White Mage Rarity (I'm playing the GBA version, so all the letters fit) so I suppose that makes her a girl! :flirt: I don't know if Rarity would be too pleased to find out that she's actually a guy!

In pretty much all Final Fantasy games, the characters who were White Mages were female, or had a higher Magic stat than males it seemed.

In the Dawn of Souls version of Final Fantasy I, the auto names for White Mages are all female names (except for Noah)

So, it seems that Square Enix sees White Mages as female. I personally see White Mages as female.

Hehehe, I have always thought that White Mages are female (except FF III on NES). I named my White Mage in FF I *cough cough* Qibel *cough*
Pretty strange...

All my FF1 characters are female.

Except for my Laddy, they're all women. Laddy just has delicate features! :jess:

I always give my White Mages guy names. I don't know why, I just always thought they were meant to be male.

but white mages are girls, you can see it when they become

I think the term wizard is quite masculine and so it is more of an argument for them being male than female.

My White Mage always has a female name, unless I'm playing the NES version in which case I can go either way.

On one occasion I couldn't think of a female friend to name her after, so I named her after a male friend with a feminised name. In other words, Ben became Benne. It was hilarious.

I used the random names and wound up with Mikoto (mostly chosen because if I ever saw a sequel to IX, I'd want to see her involved somehow), so I guess mine's female. I always assumed the white mage was female anyway, since I didn't play any game prior to and inclusive of VI I until it was released on PSOne, and the white mages were all female up to that point. Thanks to IX, I also just assumed the Black Mage was male.

White Mages are females. Otherwise who would Black Mage hit on?

01-01-2012, 09:53 PM
Female. In games like FFT or FF12 I make my females into healers, young boys into arcane/damage casters, and men in to straight DD or tanks.

White mages actually are the first effeminate final fantasy character. Which, by default, makes them the lead character for Final Fantasy.

The black mage is obviously a chick. The black glow beneath their clothes is all censorship.

Mine are both.

Mine are both.

Hermaphrodites are gross.

It's not their fault. You need to be more accepting

01-07-2012, 07:16 PM

Hermaphrodites are gross.
Or he could have two White Mages in the party. Way to jump to conclusions!

01-08-2012, 06:58 PM
The best thing about being all robed up is that you can pretty much decide for yourself.

And yeah don't jump to conclusions. :p

01-08-2012, 08:06 PM
To where exactly am I supposed to jump then?

And if I can't blame Hermaphrodites for being born that way, what's next? You gonna tell me I can't blame the gays for being gay? Huh, are ya!? Didn't think so. I had the foresight to make sure I didn't have a vagina before I was born. I expect no less from everyone else.

Seriously though, I understand that making all my white mages girls and all my girls white mages is sexist, but I blame Square Enix, they made me this way. If it helps any, one of my favorite characters is Beatrix from FFIX.

How is that related?

Beatrix isn't a typical pigeon-holed sexist version of a female character. It's proof I'm not totally sexist.

01-09-2012, 06:05 PM
Alright, I'll pay that. :p

What you mean the stoic borderline bitch female who suddenly goes all lovey dovey once a man captures her attention? Not a typical pigeon-holed sexist version of a female character at all.

01-09-2012, 07:13 PM
Don't you belittle Beatrix and Steiner's love! It's the real thing, not a copy, not a sham! I think your viewing Beatrix's attitude early on as "borderline bitch" is the real sexism going on here. So if a woman is reserved and dutiful, she's a bitch?

FFIX played rather thoroughly with the concept of gender. One of the reasons I thoroughly enjoy it.

01-09-2012, 07:19 PM
In the middle she is reserved and doubtful. At the beginning she is brought out to be far to un-personable. I don't this is a reflection of her over all character, but a writing decision to make her fit more into the stereotype. But alas we should probably move this to the FF9 forum.

Well, I named my party after the Bonne pirates from the Mega Man Legends series. I always do in this game. That's how I first played the game, and it became a tradition. If I use a White Mage, then I give that job the name Tron, the female pirate. It looks the most feminine of all of the jobs, after all.

>>> The FF1 WM has always been female for me..:luca:

12-02-2013, 01:20 AM
Always gave the White Mage a female name and pretended they were female, even though I have reason to believe it was meant to be a guy. I just wanted at least one female in the party.

12-02-2013, 02:57 AM
Tas told me the white mage has always been female even though i assumed it was a guy. i agree though because on the back of the cd case for FF origins the white mage has a female name xD

so yes. i vote female.

Mine is Evee.

I like having a woman around, gives things some color.
