The facial features in that image are not even remotely close to being detailed enough to dispute whether it's a male or female.

I may have gotten a bit too excited, I agree with the above poster... it is a tad ambiguous... However, SE would be crazy not to let us have them.

I just noticed that myself. It certainly looks more male than female. Not guarantee that they're going to be playable though.

Well we practically know assume that that is a male mithra, the only question really is if they are going to be playable (which they ruddy well will be!). Since they've probably put one smack dab in the centre of the picture, you'd think that's a pretty big hint that they are going to be playable, but we can't be certain yet. They might just be putting him there to tease us. ;_;

It's way to smeary to say whether it's a male or a female, and its chest is hidden.

That does, however, appear to be a Tarutaru sitting next to it.

From what people have gathered there will be Male Mithra in FFXIV. Of course, it's not been confirmed, but if you watch the trailer, the Mithra casting the magic shield looks very boyish. Not to mention the obvious Male Mithra in the picture on the FFXIV art. Denying it is a bit silly, whether they will be playable or not is another question, but that is obviously a guy Mithra. Look at the other Mithra in that art, they all look very feminine and Mithra like, he stands out.

Another thing is, having Male Mithra is something both the western and eastern playerbase has been begging for, for a very long time. Especially in Japan, and as much as I hate to say it, with how much the furry thing has become popular, there is a huge demand for it. I'm not a furry myself but I've always wanted to be a Male Mithra. As I said in another thread, they exist in FFXI and are common in their HOMELAND. We just do not see them because they seldom venture from there. The Mithra tribes living in Windurst and Elshimo are just "Renegade" tribes who are comprised of Women~Cat~Hunters and all that lore, but Male Mithra are perfectly common (From what we learn in some missions and even some random NPC conversations) on their homeland.

Now, we know FFXIV isn't going to be FFXI and all that as of today. But it is obvious, and they said they are making the races to be very similar so people have that same feel that they love. It's always been a design flaw them not allowing you to play Male Mithra, and what more of a perfect time to add them? I think there would be a HUGE upset in the community if they didn't allow for it.

Another thing to consider is this game looks very largely built around Fanservice. Easier to play, Prettier, Less stressful and Time Restraining, all of which are very good, and it looks like they are listening to the fans and to what people want as far as this game will go (so far).

So I think it's very safe to say, if you look at all the evidence and possibilities, and what people want and what they can do, and the freedom they have to explore new possibilities, it's pretty certain that we will have Male Mithra in FFXIV.

Right, but once again, even in Vana Diel, they do exist, and are common in their homeland. People have asked and begged for a long time that they add them to FFXI some how, perhaps through a expansion going to their homeland, but have been shot down for various reasons.

What better time, and what better way to finally give people what they've been asking for in this regard? This finally gives them the chance to be creative and have more freedom to do things like this. And so far FFXIV seems to be all about pleasing the players. So yeah, I would say more than it's possible in all complete honesty, and with complete respect. I would have to personally say it's probable with about a 99% chance. I don't see them not being added.

Also, take a look at FFXI, they KNOW people want Male Mithra, which is why they added Lehko (The Male Mithra NPC in the FFXI WOTG Storyline). They know the demand is there. So I'm sure they will play off of this. It will add something new, fresh, and creative, and simply make them more money off of the fanservice off of it.

Ok so here is MY weak argument, to ME the anatomy looks male, with the face being your typical bishi XI male face(even accounting it's a mithra).

The shoulder and the chest seem more male to me, especially comparing to the mithra on the far left of the image. Anyways, here is a quick image sketch over of what I first saw when I saw it on the left, and a female version on the right just for comparison.

Like I said, that's just a weak argument, but that's how my eyes saw it when I saw the image.

Compared to the clearly female Mithra on each side of the piece, it's almost definitely a male mithra.

I really hope there's male Mithras and they are playable, I've known more then a few guys who played a Mithra because they like the looks and the racial stats but would have liked to be male too. I plan on being a female Mithra and would love to run into boy kitties =^-^=
