Yes, if they decline to pick they can get more variety.

So, hypothetically a Sadde could be a parunia of dragonish mother and non-dragonish father, if Sadde-mom declined to pick a gender for their kid? I don't imagine Sadde-dad would like that at all

The reason I was asking is that one of my characters has ridiculously strong template attractors for being (a) nonhuman if there are any other sapient races available, (b) a dragon if that exists as a sapient race, and (c) non-binary.

What I'm getting here, and please correct me if I'm wrong, is that non-binary dragons are possible but only if the parent(s) decided not to choose gender, and that transgender dragons don't really happen.

Follow-up question, prompted by the same character: could a non-binary dragon (or indeed any dragon) pick forms of different sexes? Could they, for example, have a female human form but a male elf form? Would they need to be blue? Blue unusual or unique?

Parunias can’t be born shrens, and it seems to me at least that a dragonish Sadde would at least become a shren if their dad had any exposure to these stereotypes.

IIRC, that in particular is impossible (although I expect wizardry might in theory be able to handle it?) but there are some native Elcenian species where sex and gender work differently.

Dragon shapeshifting doesn't change sex. Wizardry can do it trivially though.

And presumably if you wizard one of your forms it just stays wizarded?

I forget, can a blue unique have multiple forms of the same species?

Also a dragon Tobias doesn't care about the gender thing at all, but he cares about shrenhood very very strongly, and if something like what happened to Mial were to happen to local Sadde then he would just leave Laura.

I don't remember for sure if I've established that but I think so.
