I may possibly not use new pronouns for the alien species in the game. I have not decided yet.

I was aiming for a fun character with Vanity. haha And I may have to look at that fight, it may give me ideas!
I was just thinking, how you put the english pronouns really fits for the hierarchy on He'El, right down to using "it" for prisoners/exiled ones. I just thought I would tell you this.
I think all the Asagi clones do end up getting into an argument about who is the best Asagi too! Though the original Asagi isn't actually nearly as vain/self-centered as her clones are and basically created al the clones on accident, so it's not quite the same.
It's not a perfect fit for the hierarchy and implies a particular gender bias, but I think that's kind of my point. The translations are awkward and often misleading, but that's how language often is. For example: Native Americans were often called 'Indians' because it was once thought that America was part of or near India, the Roma people are often called 'Gypsies' because they were once thought to have come originally from Egypt, and so on. :3
That is hilarious! XD
After reading this and your comment again, I realize you are correct. I guess maybe I was just thinking of the prisoner/exiled ones pronouns, which would actually translate to "it", given the limits of english and the implications of calling a living being, especially one with noticeable intelligence, "it". The voi/vois and nov/novs pronouns are intended to be demeaning. They very much mean "lesser one". Nov/novs means that to a greater scale, as those with voi/vois are considered still redeemable if enough effort is put in, but for the most part, "it" would be a generically correct translation.
