Females are often credited for being agile and smart. However, each race values these traits differently.

Some races are more likely to have female offspring than others. The eagles and hares both rely on their females for gathering food. While the eagles value females greatly and hold them in high regard, the hares view females as little better than slaves. Indeed, a hare female is required to join a harem by her third cycle or leave the warren.

Turtles and rats view females as breeding stock, but their approaches differ. The turtles coddle and hide away their females, as they are rarely born and tend to be relatively frail by turtle standards. The rats, on the other hand, are lead by the females, who insist on being pampered whenever possible. Foxes, monkeys, and wolves are also lead by the females of their respective races. Additionally these three races, as well as otters, rely on the females to defend settlements or dwellings.

While crocodiles, foxes, and panthers have found that females make the best teachers, the fox females do not make the best caretakers. Vipers, otters, bears, and monkeys all task their females with caring for the young, yet each for its own reason.

Most females heed the calling of the archer, assassin, rogue, or skirmisher, as these lend themselves well towards the innate traits in most females. Less often do females become channelers, finishers, scouts, or warriors, more often due to circumstances rather than choice. The other callings do not ring loud in the hearts or lives of females and, as such, they are often the butt of jokes and the main characters in tales of tragedy.
