Runescape

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

This article is about the low-level NPC known only as "Woman". For information on females in general, see Gender.

Women are NPCs that can be found in many places across the world. The women in RuneScape are very similar to the men, the only major difference being the appearance. They can also be a good source of herbs for low level players. Players can pick a woman's pocket at level 1 Thieving, giving 8 experience.

Contents

Locations

Women can be found almost anywhere in RuneScape along with Men.

They used to dominate the city of Lumbridge, but with the introduction of the 'Work-for' option they were replaced by non-attackable NPCs.

To date, the area most abundantly filled with Men/Women would be Edgeville, right next to the jail.

Trivia

  • There is a glitch that can be done while attacking a woman by talking to a woman when she is dead.
  • There is an unresponsive woman at the top of the Lumbridge cellar house (where learning the ropes is completed) if talked to, the words "Nothing interesting happens" appear. If you examine her, the text will appear as "She seems to doubt the existence of a dragon at all" this likely an Easter egg, that Jagex put in, as the dragon appeared in the cellar directly under the house.

(Redirected to Sexes article)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A pair of Humans, male (left) and female (right).

Most beings in the galaxy belonged to one of two sexes, male or female. However, some species, such as the Hutts, could adopt the sexual characteristics of either gender, and were classified as hermaphrodites. Other variable species, like the X'Ting, changed gender periodically based on hormonal cycles. Some alien species had more than two sexes (the insectoid Xi'Dec had over 180 different sexes, presumably due to variations in compatible genitalia). Finally, some species, like the Filordi, were asexual, with individuals being able to reproduce on their own. The Fnessian race had a previously undocumented gender called Thos. The Rakririans also had a third sex, known as facilitator drones.

Hermaphrodites

A number of species reproduced hermaphrodically. For instance, individual Hutts contained both male and female reproductive organs.[1] Other hermaphroditic species included the Pui-ui,[2] the Verpine, and Strills.

Another example of an hermaphrodite species is the Vratix. A Vratix individual would, during his life assume both the role of impregnator and gestator ("male" and "female"), depending on its age.[3]

Dimorphism

Most species possessed distinct characteristics that distinguished males and females. Females tended to have slighter frames than males and possessed voices with a higher pitch and tonal quality. Females of most mammalian species (and some reptilian species) were distinguished by their breasts. Social practices also further characterized females by how they are expected to act, the clothing they wear, and how they are expected to style their hair (if that species grew it).

Males tended to be larger, with broader shoulders and deeper voices. Males had more muscle mass and were expected to perform better with manual labor than females. Social practices expected males to behave in certain ways, wear certain clothing, and style their hair in a way that was considered "masculine" in order to further differentiate that gender from the females of the species.

Excargans sexes were undetermined in their youth, with both males and females having similar features. Around their thirteenth birthday, an Exargan's sex would then develop.

Droid gender programming

Droids, especially those with complex personalities and those which worked in close partnerships with organic beings, such as protocol droids and astromech droids, were often programmed to have stereotypically masculine or feminine personalities. Thus, even mechanical beings were usually designated he or she.

Behind the scenes

Several Star Wars games allow the player to choose and customize the main character's sex. Such characters are Rookie One, Jaden Korr, Revan and the Jedi Exile. Since Star Wars has a definite story and canon, subsequent publications have defined the canonical sex of those persons in the historical 'reality' of the Star Wars continuity. While Rookie One,[4] Revan, and Jaden Korr were canonized as male, the Jedi Exile was made into a female character,[5] which caused some consternation among the Star Wars community. In addition, Star Wars Galaxies allows the player to choose the sex of his or her character. Unlike the above characters, however, Galaxies player characters are not canonical, but many of the events they take part in in-game are and are referred to as spacers on Wookieepedia.
