Definitely female.  And I thought everyone knew that I was Captain
Killfile's mo-- *stampeded by weevils*

(It will be *so refreshing* to have male hero/female villain without an
ounce of sexual tension.  I can't wait.)

Ooooh, yes.  I like it.

Innnnnnnnnteresting.  Does he get a name beyond "Death"? (Perhaps a
reference to the cosmic beings Killfile and Are.Em.  See Limp-Asparagus Lad

...I love this paragraph.
