    Is it so bad that some people want the characters in their video games, despite the genre, to have well-written personalities to make them actually feel like they are part of the world they're in?

    Anyways, I'm getting tired of people who value "representation" in media. To an extent I get it, because sure it's cool for me to see characters that are my gender or sexuality, but it doesn't make me incapable of empathizing with other characters and understanding their motivations for doing what they do. The fact of the matter is that even if, say, Evie, was a Lesbian, that would be one of the only things about her I could relate to. Someone having the same sexual orientation, skin color, gender, etc, doesn't mean anything else about them is something that "represents" you, because people are individuals, not stereotypes.

    So, he's at least bisexual.
    Fernando is depicted as a wannabe womanizer what makes it absurd that he is gay. Even is in reality such a complex personality is possible it is not in the super-simple Paladins lore. Something like cross-dresser dwarf Barik would only work as joke in Paladins even if small crossdressers do exist in reality. Same goes for the gay Spanish wannabe womanizer knight.

    Maybe this is part of his secret identity. He is a gay Chinese squire playing a straight Spanish knight. That why he is always wearing a helmet.

    I only hope they won't change his voice lines or his default skin. since there's no real story or character development, HiRez may slap on their characters all tags they want, it wouldn't matter at all.
    but if they will go further and force this stupid retcon on 'material' level, literally changing 'Nando we all know and love, this will be true treason.
    optional skin for Gaynando will be okay, but there's no need to push this into his already existing for a long time default kit.

    It was Evie, Willo's lines were redone with Evie's VA, which is fine except that she sounded way too much like just more Evie.

    I wouldn't mind gay pride skins for several characters, regardless of their sexuality. I just always liked rainbows anyway lol

    Now that is something I always thought possible, since (like some here said) he seems like in love with himself. But them it would make sense for him to be bisexual, because of his voice-lines. Still, the explanation given some posts before that he can be gay having to act like the knight that had died before, considering that knight was a womanizer, it could solve the equations. I wonder if Hi-Rez thought about all that before doing the statement tough... I would like to see how they will fit that in the lore.
