@Erthaelion... While I agree that it is a lot harder to imagine a sexual misfit as female, there is the possibility that the skin-spies are hermaphrodites, i.e. they have flexible genital organs or two sets thereof (I'll leave it to the author to supply the gross details of those contraptions!). Regarding the observation that we've seen no "female" skin-spies, wasn't there a scene when it was implied that one of Esmenet's fellow prostitutes was a closet skin-spy? Mind you, as you say it doesn't make sense to impersonate a female in the Three Seas - there are few that hold any power. On the other hand a female is more likely to be overlooked and therefore a more effective spy. view post
