If that be the case then I am completely lost.

My guess is that Sasha was born transgendered and raised/identifies as a male.
Risha and Jay Chan? Yeah, I ship'em.

His condition seems to be hormonal, but I'll wager that his hormones are genetic. Either Doris gave him an extra chromosome, or Sergei gave him a damaged one.
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

I suggest you read the FAQs.  All Kuvvies are born transgendered, they than tend to lean one direction or the other by a certain age.  As with all animals hormones effect individuals differently.

From reading the comics and comments from Noben, I think Sasha is just an androgynous male and likes females.  Maybe I don't read into stuff enough, but from what I've heard and seen that seems to be the best conclusion.

Per the FAQ, true transgendered are possible, though uncommon. So it is possible for Sasha to be a teenage transgendered kuvvie.

I have a feeling the plot will allay our speculations one way or another in a future arc.
Meanwhile Noben's responses regarding his physical sex are decidedly ambiguous, and Sasha's figure remains decidedly androgynous. Actually that's not true, it's positively feminine. And nobody's complaining!

The FAQ mentions that there used to be 5 recognized genders, but that social norms have changed since that point to only recognize two. I'm guessing that Sasha is at the biological point that would have been recognized as smack dab in the middle (certainly he wouldn't be the the 100% male side), but self identifies as purely male and is attracted to women. Physical sex vs. gender vs. sexual orientation. Three totally separate categories.

5 recognized genders

aFemale (CC), bFemale (T-Square), Androgynous (Sasha*), bMale (Risha**), and aMale (D'shea). Or at least that's how I have It figured.

Note that both CC and D'shea are both Skylords. Before they had 5 genders, Kuvrahks were full-on herms, if memory serves. The Skylords were the first to evolve separate genders, and by the time everyone else caught up, they were already fully binary.

*Sasha seems to be on the male side of Androgynous genetically, and on the female side hormonally. Put simply, he's biologically confused.

**Risha is hormonally full-on male but genetically, and therefore anatomically, male-androgynous.

I think Caz has mentioned that it's entirely hormonal, and that sex is not a genetically determined trait in Kuvrahks.

So what is everyone's feelings on the comic itself at this point? Lots of Cameos!

If that's the case, then Sasha would be even more complicated than we've been led to believe. If Kuvrahk sex is entirely determined by hormones, how can Sasha be so girly, and yet still be anatomically male? And, if not genetics, what factors determine your hormones? Certainly not personality; If that were true, then Sasha would be just as male as D'shea!

I think caution should be invoked now before catgirls start dying.
