Androgyne is the Aardwolf neutral (non-binary) gender. In-game actions 
and commands will use they/them/their pronouns for characters with this 

After adding a non-binary / neutral gender into Aardwolf, we had some fairly
long conversations about what to call it. Neutral was too easily confused
with Neutral alignment. We had 'genderless' for a while and it just seemed
too bland. The Wikipedia description for 'Androgyne' fits exactly what we
want to accommodate and also has a "kind of RPG" feel to it:

"An androgyne is a person who does not fit cleanly into the typical
 gender roles of [their] society. Androgynes may identify as beyond
 gender, between genders, moving across genders, entirely genderless, or 
 any combination or all of these. Androgyne identities include pangender,
 bigender, ambigender, nongendered, agender, gender fluid, or intergender.
 Androgyny can be either physical or psychological; it does not depend on
 birth sex and is not limited to intersex people."

"An androgyne may or may not look androgynous. Someone who looks 
 androgynous may or may not be an androgyne. A "psychological androgyne" 
 is one term for a person who has an androgynous gender identity, but 
 doesn't necessarily look androgynous."
