    It's going to vary from person to person. For some Tya, their status might have nothing to do with their gender or sexual identity, relating only to the gendered roles they want to perform. For others, it is a matter of how they identify themselves. Good manners in the West would default to the male pronoun, but I'm not sure which Righteous Tsunami was written with.

    (My understanding was that since the Tya consider themselves male, referring to one as "she" would be pretty rude.)

    The other person is Righteous Tsunami, and he is the best.

    Nazri has a little headshot in MoEP: Sidereals in the same section that has bits on um...Chejop's there, and Ayesha Ura, I think Gracious Shaia too? And like one other person, maybe. He looked vaguely Nigerian to me, and was smiling warmly.

    To be fair, her backstory predates akuma.

    Nazri? He's the head of the Convention of Fire, I think, and tries to help young independents, but he isn't a leader of them, because that's like herding cats. And he's probably too dedicated to his actual job to bother with that even if some independents wanted him to lead a new faction.

    I dunno what he looks like.

    Weellll I didn't know/remember most of that or see it in that light before. Wow, yeah that's not good.

    Also I just remembered that the most prominant black woman was sold into slavery as a baby and grew up in an evil demon cult. Which would probably be fine and an interesting background for a Solar*, on her own, but suddenly in the context of the sig circle it looks less cool.


    *I do have to laugh though at the Salmalin for kicking her out. A woman they raised from birth told them she had magical Exalted powers and asked how the demons wanted her to use them, and they somehow decided they didn't want a completely loyal Solar akuma in their cult. *shakes head*

    The fact that both you and I can only kinda hazily recall that guy is probably a good indicator that's he not a prominent character.

    ...okay, when you put it that way I feel kind of ashamed for thinking he was a cool character.

    "With his shirt off" implies he, in fact, owns a shirt. I'm not so sure of that.

    Though I have never been certain why he is so disliked, having only 2 books that depict him. Is it that he's the Angry Black Man trope? He does seem like that.

    Literally nothing.

    And that's not a colloquial "literally." It's a literal "literally."
