Answer: Actually, I "said" his/her, so you should assume that it's a man, a woman or some combination of both. In related news, allow me to clarify a clue that I dropped in my vodcast last week regarding the upcoming death. The character about to get Grim Reapered has never been presumed dead by the audience. It's an important distinction.
