||Wow, traditional media. And a background too...;|
This is Melisan, an NPC from the (tabletop) Blue Rose RPG setting -- a variant take on the D&D mechanics with a lot of Lackey/Pierce/etc. influence in the setting. Melisan has been living as a man for the past 15-or-so years, after she swore revenge on one of her homeland's neighbors for killing her family and realized that the only way to get that revenge was to join the (all male) priesthood that runs her country. Melisan is very used to acting male -- half the time I use male pronouns to refer to her, simply because that's how Melisan thinks of herself.
Anyway, Melisan is so used to having others perceive her as male that, when she does (read: is forced to) dress to match her biological sex, she gets nervous. The fact it was part of the PCs' plan to infiltrate Evil Neighbor Country by being an (all-female) band of traveling players wasn't helping any.
