N. B.

A tiny sculpture of a succubus has appeared in each of the Adventure Paths. They are a type of easter egg put in by James Jacobs. Ayavah has not necessarily been the sculptor who created all of them, but she is certainly tied to this tradition. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 14:55, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Gender

Is "hermaphrodite" a gender? The article uses female pronouns for Avaya, which leads me to believe she identifies as female. What set(s) of genitalia she has seems irrelevant.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 20:17, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

This led to some interesting reading.... I guess in the Victorian times hermaphrodite was considered a third gender, but modern times has dropped this practice as we adopted the idea of categorizing people with the gender they identify with. - Cpt kirstov (talk) 22:05, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Her gender on p. 40 of Magnimar, City of Monuments is listed as "hermaphrodite". I was simply following that classification, but am willing to discuss changing her gender to female in the infobox and merely mentioning her hermaphroditism in the text. --Brandingopportunity (talk) 23:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
I would prefer that, as this sets a weird precedent that I don't think we'd be likely to continue in future books. I think it's fine to mention it in the running text as it at least provides a bit more context than simply including the word in an infobox with nothing else said about it.—Paizo Publishing, LLC.png Yoda8myhead (talk) 00:29, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
