Which gender is the makeover mage? It says the he does this then she does that?????
He/she's the Makeover Mage. His/her gender keeps changing. Originally he was just a guy, but he's sometimes a she now. --Avian Maid 10:42, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Heh... In another game I once played (Materia Magica, text based), one could change one's gender, and sometimes came out a neuter. Too bad Runescape doesn't have this (How would it be rendered?) Mathwhiz90601 07:46, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Sells item? Edit

To me, having "he/she", "him/her" and "his/her" throughout this article really makes it hard to read. We should establish in the opening paragraph that he/she does not have a fixed gender, and then pick one or the other to refer to him/her as for the remainder of the article. I think this would be preferable to the "he/she" as it is now, and preferable to using "they" (even though it is a long-established practice, it doesn't read very well to me like that).
In practice what I am saying is that we should refer to this NPC as "he" for the remainder of the article. I know it seems sexist to pick this over "she" for no particular reason other than convention, but I think it would improve the article. If I don't see any objections I will go ahead and do it in due course. Leevclarke talk 15:30, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
Why not refer to it as "it"? 18.104.22.168 01:18, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
- That seems sort of impersonal - the Makeover Mage is still a person, and even intersex people are called either "he" or "she", depending on how they identify. Since the Mage doesn't seem to identify either way (someone correct me if I am wrong), defaulting to "he" seems like the best option. Even though it is arguably sexist to make him/her male by default, I am only intending to make the text easier to read by using one personal pronoun consistently. Anyone else is welcome to disagree - I am only raising this in the name of clarity. ;-) Leevclarke talk 01:11, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
- The Makeover Mage is a person who has no defined gender. They are... They do... Works for other languages, will work here. Completely gender neutral. 22.214.171.124 09:45, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
- How about the gender-neutral "ze" and "hir"? Nominell 21:27, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
Updated with new information Edit
In the 5th Postbag Pete quotes this: "I don’t want to go back to bending spoons for a living." This is a clear reference to Uri Geller an Israeli born mystifier. Look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uri_Geller
Skin tone Edit
So, in theory, could we add some pics of all the different shades of skin? Or has that already been made in the past to later have been deleted? Or.. what's the story?
I was wondering the same thing. There should at least be a picture of the Makeover mage's gender/skin interface. I personally think skin color is worthy of it's own page now, as with the new vanity green skin having it's own page. Xhanort7 15:19, October 22, 2011 (UTC)
