Alas, it is male. Good for me because Boys>Girls (no sexism), but bad for GC because of upset balance of gender equality and another boy for the children to drool over.
Hey, the new Elsword character could turn out to be a woman.
And with that, the male dominated Grand Chase gets a new male character, meaning two more males than females. Then the female dominated Elsword gets a new Samusesque female character, putting Elsword at two more females than males.
Then between the two, KoG will have attained gender equality!
.....But KoG has this third game, "Fighter's Club" or something like that. I don't think there's any female characters in that. So I guess we're screwed out of equality no matter what.
