Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Providence (Bravely Second)". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

Providence is obviously female. Just because the English translation botched the job doesn't make her officially a him. This page needs to be fixed to reflect the correct gender. Jarie スイクン 15:18, March 23, 2016 (UTC)

English versions are also official versions. They're the ones we use first, but other official versions can be mentioned.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 16:58, March 23, 2016 (UTC)
Seriously? Despite her humanoid body being an obvious female and her voice being female in Japanese, or effeminate male for the English voice? Why can't a female character have a masculine voice? (It'd be an interesting inversion of the standard.) (Granted, I wouldn't dare play the dub so haven't heard how they did it, but sad.)Jarie スイクン 19:06, March 23, 2016 (UTC)
The wiki is a secondary FF source, not a primary FF source. Square Enix is the primary source. It's gonna have to be the way they do it, so all of their potential mistakes are "preserved" on the wiki. This is the only way the wiki can be seen as a reliable source.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:57, March 23, 2016 (UTC)
Does the JP version actually state Providence to be a female in itself (we know Japanese can more easily avoid stating a subject's gender unless specifically emphasised)? For all we know, any feminine undertones (eg. its first form) could be due to its long-time possession of Vega (and you'll notice I've been calling Providence an "it" because I've not seen confirmation either way); its true form is literally an inverted Illuminati pyramid (closer to a construct, or at least something that can't be biologically sexed).
