Help I don't know anything

Hello I am playing my first Redemption game ever (yay) with some old cards I found and have a dumb rules question cuz I know nothing. Are angels considered males? I attacked with an angel and my opponent played a card that removes male heroes from battle.

95% of Angels are male. The exceptions being any that are noted as genderless and a few female angels from the Angel Wars expansion set
Covenant with Death. That is all.

Generally, if the sex of the Card art is male, then the card is played male, if the art is female, the card is played female.  I believe that goes with "generic" cards as well such as "Elders of Jerusalem" etc.


And just in case you are confused, I used sex but some card identifiers use the word "gender" (like the promo "self") , but to clarify, as far as I know, Sex and Gender are considered the same thing in Redemption.  In other words, I am aware of not instance in Redemption where the cards"gender" is different than its  "biological sex" with "biological sex" being the only real point considered.

There is never going to be a case where the cards sex and gender do not align.

And this should not be seen as an "Anti- PC" thing, or an attack on gender rights, its just that, for the purposes of the game, there is never going to be a foreseeable reason why the two should be separated since the Bible never brings up Sex/Gender differences and it never was a factor in any of the bible stories involved.

I will admit that I have not read up much on gender differences and what the bible says, but having read through the bible several times, I cannot think of a situation that specifically addresses gender issues other than possibly homosexuality, nor can I think of one where the situation is even hinted at.  But I could be wrong.
