There are many ways to portray a character, and a fantasy setting offers a wide variety of additional options that can be used in the process, where gender is mostly considered just one of the many defining attributes of any and all characters.

There are many races with a matriarchal society, while others simply disregard gender as anything meaningful, instead focusing on more important things like personal merit, skill, knowledge, and contribution to the community they live in.

In fact, some females performed such heroic but also despicable deeds, and the fame and notoriety that follows each of them has spread, making their names known, names such as Biphia Kerynkiir, Fui Vrumzura, Urnor Skyer, and Asa Laughingsteel.

Female characters have long been a major part of numerous stories where their actions have spoken louder than words, and they continue to write history wherever they may go next. Gender is no obstacle to any kind of character’s progress, by any means, so focus on the innate abilities and talent that will be the very foundation of their development. Think about the race they belong to, the place where they were born, the society they lived in, what did they learn as they were growing up, and what skills might have they acquired along the way, and think of a name worthy of the adventures they will have no matter where they go.
