An interesting proposition. I, however, do not think Bandos cared for his followers gender. Bandos valued strength and strength alone. I see your point about the chosen commander quest, but could that not be a coincidence?
Zanik is now potentially dead (post-mighty fall)
, so do you still believe your proposition?
-Bandos.Though our god fallen, our brothers and sisters scattered... ready we remain; for one more battle.
Not potentially dead; in Nomad's Elegy, it's revealed that she dies even if you choose to let her try to start a new life for the Bandosians She recovered from her illness, briefly, while on Yu'biusk, but eventually she began to relapse, and after a while, she died in her sleep.
