[Poll] Is Morel really male or female?

Gender of Morel is ambiguous. So, I create a poll to find out if Morel is male or female (or other) by voting. I know it might not be true but I think it is interesting to know how do people think about Morel gender :slightly_smiling_face:

@Aeryn That isn’t a Devs’s conforming. It just @Guvnor 's initial guess.

from the general appearances and names:

morel: male
lepiota: female
russula: female

from pervious artworks, SG mostly makes heroes pretty obvious from face/body details and leaves very little room of confusion.

Always an interesting topic… :stuck_out_tongue:

The vibe I personally get from the artwork is female.

What is Morel’s “title”? Sometimes that gives a clue.

I think someone pointed out that the french title suggested morel is male

“Eloi Hunter”. I also add the “title” image too. But I am not sure if we can assume that “Hunter = Male” or not since I never seen “Huntress” in any heroes’ title in this game.

Confirmed in the main Morel thread via French title that Morel is male: :male_detective: Morel – S4 Hero – 5* Ice/ Blue: Thoughts, Discussion & Summon Results with Feedback

reposting the French pic with title here:

‘Chasseur’ is male. Mystery solved! :rofl:

(tbh, i thought he/she/it was female on first glance but i guess not. pretty androgynous really)

Yeah, but translation to other language can be different. It also happen to some other heroes.

How are people seeing female here? It’s pretty obvious to me that he’s a male. And does it matter either way? 1/3 of us are confused I guess.

Yes, mentioned in the thread. Female huntress in French would be chasseuse.

In fact, if you focus on face and Morel’s hair style

in portuguese (brasil) the title is “caçador”, so male, if it was “caçadora” it would be female (at least for brasilian players).

Does this really matter? As far as im concerned since all i keep getting are carvers and wu this is the least of my concerns. Ppl put way too much concern on this inclusive and labeling thing. :laughing: Still sore that zeline had to get panties cause it offended others …smh.

Did you just assume it’s gender? Maybe it’s a Sherman tank for all we know. Reeeeeeeeeeeee

Morel is predominantly a male name.
It’s not totally uncommon in France so it makes sense for him to be androgynous :woman_shrugging:t3:

Some of you might like to know that beyond being a species of fungi, Morel is a [male] character from a The invention of Morel a book whose main character hints at Dr. Moreau.
I don’t know if this is intentional from SG but finding a character that is both in the fungi theme and the Moreau/adventure theme is poetic.
So, if it was on purpose, kudos to them.

La invención de Morel is worth reading and has been made into several adaptations for movies and theater.
Unbeknownst to most it is the novel Lost is based upon and at one point in the series Sawyer does read it.

So… Male, without a doubt.

I found a evidence that Morel might be female. It is the triangle face-paint.

Helo who is obviously male has triangle face-paint point upward and is dark-purple color.

Lepiota who is obviously female has triangle face-paint point downward and is black color.

Morel has triangle face-paint point downward and is black color similar to Lepiota.

However, there may be no relation between triangle face-paint and Eloi’s gender and Helo isn’t also fungus name :smile:
