    I already said it in my previous comment but I vote for a male.

    Also, it surprises me to see that nobody has been tossing ideas here for the past few days, or even at least voting for the gender. That makes me a little worried about the project. I've already said it in my previous comments but this idea of creating a character together looks really interesting and neat. It would be a shame if everybody was already losing interest...

    As @ty4brawl suggested, you could make strawpolls. Maybe that would help? Perhaps some members just don't want to comment or post anything and prefer voting on an actual poll.

    I agree with @ty4brawl and @HeartClock about making a straw poll.

    Just in case you don't, I vote Female

    So that's 1 male, 1 female and 1 gender fluid.

    Considering the entirety of the cast (and I think planned cast additions as well?) minus Fred are female, having one male character might be a bit odd. Especially if they're predator-passing. So I suppose I'll pitch in for a female character.

    Male for me. Though I vote that he throws heavy rocks as one of his ranged attacks, or closes his wings in front awhile grounded to shield his face.

    I was actually thinking the same thing about the wings part. Would be great for the blocking.

    1 fluid, 2 female, 3 male.

    Seems like male is leading. Anyone else for the voting?

    There are chances that the Mane6 will add male characters, not juste female ones.
    And the problem is that if we follow this logic for every character to be created/added, then we will never have male characters.

    Since it was brought up but never done, I figured I'd go ahead and make a Strawpoll for the character's gender.

    Link here: Them's Fightin' Herds Community Character Poll: Gender

    This way, we can have people in The Hold vote without confusion like that which happened before in the thread, give Vidz and everyone else an easier way to keep track of answers, and not require people who want to vote to make a post about it (most of the time). Hope this helps, and go vote!

    I've been away from this for a while, huh? Sorry everyone :(

    But it seems Delusional's strawpoll was an excellent way to collect votes! With a total of twelve votes, it appears we've got a Female Griffin on our hands! Now, if anyone's still interested, let's mold this character!

    But where should we begin? Fighting style? Character traits? What kind of ideas do you guys have for our Griffin?

    I think we should work on the character traits first before the fighting style and moveset.
    She has to be different from the other characters personality-wise.

    If we're looking for a personality to distinguish from the others, maybe we could do someone who's got a motherly vibe or mature at an early age vibe? Idk the exact age everyone else is, but based on what I've read/heard from voice lines and lore, I get the impression the girls are young adult or younger in terms of mental maturity (is that even the right term?). So, it could be a nice change to have an older character/character who thinks more like an older adult in the mix.

    You've just got make sure it isn't too similar to a female gryphon from a certain series if you go the "complete jerk" route.

    Hmm...well if we wanna do older adult and not completely good, why don't we do something like a bitter, cynical, cold older adult type? She could be the type that only works with other people or does things if it benefits herself?
