Y'know, you have a point...she does seem to show respect towards other women a LOT more often than she does males. It seems so odd to think of any elf as having gender-bias, though...even a small one.
It's interesting...someone (I think it was wingthing) commented how more wolfrider women than wolfrider men bite the dust. But when it comes to the wise, powerful elves...almost none of the men made it. There are three "queens" as it were - Savah, Timmain, and Winnowill - but no "kings" left. Voll gone. Door gone crazy and then gone. We have Aurek/Egg still, thank goodness, but he's been severely marginalized and we know almost nothing about him. Surge had "king" potential, but he was crazy, cranky man instead.
The world of two moons is not nice to tall men! Almost makes me afraid for poor Sunstream now that he's tall and on his way to becoming the equal of Savah for magic and wisdom.
