So, What gender do you think of Quina as? Male, Female, or both?

I always thought of 'it' with a odd sorta voice, that could belong to either gender. I thought of 'it' as a male sometimes, but a female most of the time.

So Quina's gender...post away!

Quina is neither male nor female. The Qu are androgynous. This is fact rather than opinion, I'm afraid...

Exactly, what do you think of s/he as?

Plus I just thought of something...If they are Androgynous, why did Vivi call his adoptive father, 'Uncle' Which could go with, how do they reproduce?

They reproduce by mating, just like any other species. Only thing is, they don't have to look for someone of the opposite sex. Kinda full of opportunities, don't ya think?

Vivi probably called Quan 'uncle' for want of a better term. Uncle/aunt is a but cumbersome if you try to say it too often.

Lots of Opportunities.:D Okay, I just wasted 6 minutes of my life trying to think of something that would be a good discussion to talk about. I didn't thnk of a single thing.

In the game, characters generally refer to Quina as 's/he'. It's difficult to say without sounding dopey, but it's accurate enough.

*votes cupcakes, just because*

But seriously, I dont believe that Quina is either, but i kind of think of Quina as a girl, it evens out the numbers.

BTW... this is already a thread, "the ultimate mystery"

Oh dear oh dear... that comment's going to get some great responses.

Ir's made fairly clear that all Qu are androgynous. So basically, Quina could become either a mother or a father - depends on the specifics of Qu mating, though, which is something that doesn't bear thinking about.

I always thought that he was one or the other, but they just didn't tell you, and nobody in the party cared enough to ask.

Cupcakes, for being a chef and the game being vague with the s/he stuff :p

I've always thought that too. :p

a GIRL of course. If she was a boy...... she would have "married" vivi.... thus making her gay. I dont think that square would put that in a t rated game. plus.... she wears pink. sure... some men wear pink. but a pink APRON.......yes... defenately female.

I just looked it up on www.playonline.com and Big D is right. she is Andrngous.......er... andronigous......er..... that word that starts with an A.

What does being gay have to do with the rating?

07-10-2003, 06:26 PM
I, myself, have nothing against homosexuals or lesbians... But a lot of people see 'gays' as a taboo... So that's the reason...

" why did Vivi call his adoptive father, 'Uncle' " From what I remember he called him his grandfather not uncle, But I may be wrong I aint played that game in so long. But I think he does.

Quina is clearly defined as having no gender, but it always seemed more feminine than Quale and Quan. Although I was aware of its' lack of gender, I did think it was female, if it had to be defined.

Quina's gender never needed 'defining', for me. Quina is neither male or female - or both, if you prefer. This is a fact, from the game. Quina is neither a "boy", nor a "girl".

However, I'm awfully tempted to abuse my modly powers and change that poll so that five thousand people are in favour of "cupcakes". ;)
But I think I'll hold back...

I thought it was a dude, but then again, Quina's scary and says and does really weird things.

11-22-2003, 04:50 PM
Seems neither male nor female to me...And maybe Qus reproduce through binary fission LOL

But Quina and Vivi Did get married, right aloung side Zinane and Dagger! My file can prove it, 101 marrages, the plaque reads, while before it read 99, so I say that Quina is female. And that's what I voted too. Imagine that.:rolleyes2
