So our viewpoint character had to be gender neutral, neither male nor female but applicable to both. To avoid the mention of gender in our writing we felt it best to name our character, but even an ambiguous name like Sam or Alex didn't feel right. And so, as a questioner consulting a deck is called a seeker, our character was named The Seeker – an Everyman.
We tried to reflect the Everyman status in the images of the cards, using the artwork available to us from Claudia’s gallery. Throughout the deck the focal character changes, representing different men and women.
The Hero represents the male reader and The Heroine is for the female reader, with the opposite being their love interest or partner. However, cards 59 and 60 provide an alternative Hero and Heroine that can be swapped for a reading for a gay person. In addition, the two alternative cards can be included where another party is involved. Personally, we like to leave them in to represent a mystery man or woman; someone who will be important in our situation in some way. However you decide to use them, we hope it provides you with as much flexibility as possible.
