(Not that I ever claimed to understand the workings of the female mind, but it seems the author's gender shines through more than I expected (maybe I should rather research the workings of the male mind!?). So I'm probably better off considering it a male in future).

It really does, Glance. You wouldn't believe how many writers can't write the opposite sex at all believably - including many professionals - because they don't understand the tremendous shift in mindset you need to carry it off.

We all naturally default to our own gender.

Not a lot of female characters? Just two, but a lot of them? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Anyway thanks for the explanation - though that means, if I really wanted to keep the issue open, it would be terribly hard to achieve. Especially over a longer period of time and interaction (which I seriously considered).

Almost impossible, in fact. Unless you decided the Lupogryph was asexual, and thus, having no sex, could act in any way you chose.
