can We consider The Huntress as a LGBT character?

    "Like a mother" has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

    Posts like this are gross, not to be rude.

    The Huntress is, i'm pretty sure, canonly autistic and has the mind of a 8-9 year old.

    Sexuality, preference, and all those other topics, when talking about Huntress, is just gross to me.

    This has got to be bait. Right?

    In theory you couldn't come up with a WORSE way to include LGBTQ representation.

    Oh yeah, the lunatic women is a pedophile who kidnaps little girls because shes sexually interested in them and ends up killing them. PRIDE YALL!

    Maybe we will get a surprise chapter during pride month. The first gay male killer. Jeffrey Dahmer....

    We cannot conclude her sexuality from anything we currently know yet. So no. Kidnapping the girls is kind of her maternal instinct..

    if anything I would assume she is asexual, but we can’t say for certain and in case of huntress I think it wouldn’t make sense to include it in her backstory because that would be kind of retconning the existing lore: she lives alone in the Forest and kills everything and everyone but young girls. No point in adding sexuality/relations in this backstory.

    They can be whatever your imagination wants them to be.

    she captures girls because her mom died, and I'm assuming she kills only men because a father was absent in her childhood. I don't know though.

    I think people let into you enough, and you deserved it, so I was thinking:

    If any killer should be a lesbian, probably Plague. Assuming she's Babylonian since that's what she speaks, she wouldn't have been against homosexuality as it was a civilization that didn't find it taboo. https://getmaude.com/blogs/themaudern/sex-and-babylon

    And lemme tell you, a lot of us "women loves women" like the tall power lesbians. 👌

    She doesn't have 'the mind of a child,' her lore doesn't say she has any sort of intellectual disability like that, only that she is more animalistic from growing up alone without socialisation. She raised herself and is an adult and behaves as such with maternal instincts trying to find a daughter, her mind didn't hit pause just because her parents died.

  • cheetocultleadercheetocultleader Member Posts: 1,022

    Look into the effects of social isolation (not the kind where people just reject you, the kind where you're 100% alone) and children who were raised by animals or just on their own. Animalistic for humans is almost never growing up -- you don't develop any social thinking and run fully on instinct. Some can never even learn to speak. And yes, animals have innate maternal instinct. Due to what she does with the children and how she acquires them however, points to something being defunct in her mind. Even a cat can grow fond of say a puppy and not hurt it while doing the few weeks it would take to nurse it. Huntress just starves them to death.

    I like Samination's canon where Huntress is dating Tapp lol

  • TunnelVisionTunnelVision Member Posts: 863

    Pretty sure Huntress's name is Abby.

    I'm not a fan of developers and writers changing anything about a character for the sake of appeasing a group of individuals, and not for any other reason. Or better yet, in this case, introducing something completely irrelevant to the character for the same reason. If BHVR want to make a brand new character that is LGBT I'm all for it, but don't change the stuff that's already there just for that reason because it doesn't need to be changed.

  • MooksMooks Member Posts: 2,039

    It wouldn’t change anything though. Just add something to the backstory, which they do with the tomes, no one had a problem with that though.

    i agree they shouldn’t add it to characters where it does not fit, huntress for example isn’t a great fit for the introduction of her sexuality or relationships.

    but what if they want to write a backstory bit about Adam where a relationship is relevant? They wouldn’t change him if they mention a girlfriend or a boyfriend. But I guess there are other threads for this topic.

    Her name is Anna, very common name in Eastern Europe.

    How about no?

    I feel like some of the survivor customization options could read as LGBT-coded to a certain extent, which yknow, gives players options.

    Like, as a lesbian who typically duo's with a Bi girl, we often dress our Nea/Meg/Kate/Yui characters up and do like a "LETS GO, LESBIANS!!" thing.

    Not that I mind a canonically LGBTQ+ character ingame at all, just yknow sayin that if you wanna make a character LGBT that Nea with the pink hair is 👀

    See, I see the universe of DBD like something similar to DC or Marvel multiverses. Multiple games are being played in multiple realms in the whole world, at the same time. So definitely in some universes Anna could be gay, in some straight, in some bisexual and so on. I think the characters are written and and are provided with a basic lore (where they might have an ex/SO of the opposite sex/same sex as the case may be) - but it is up-to the player to make them what the former wants them to be. Sexuality isn't something that is brought out in the game. The makers do not officially confirm the sexualities of the characters, even though some of them have an ex/SO in their lores. If a player wants their Anna in their particular universe to be gay, so be it!

    I think the general fact that she saves little girls and keeps them in hostage is due to the fact that she sees herself and her childhood in them. That might be explained in the official wikias. I have seen it. Again, don't know about official statements from the makers.

    Also, I don't think she only kills men. When you play against her as a female survivor, doesn't she attack/hook/try to kill you?
