Hi, does anyone know if you can change your characters gender in-game somehow?

I made my account 4 years ago and last year realized i was trans and now go as a boy, thus i sort of feel disconnected and uncomfortable playing my character now and i have a mask equipped to hide their face now lol

if there's not an option for this then is there any other workaround to this that ya'll may know? if not that's fine and thanks in advanced.

Unfortunately, there isn't to my knowledge, though, if they did, it would either be very costly and with Gems and/or it would bring big controversies in spite of being a highly requested suggestion among players.

I'm LPS100, Genderfluid (any prounouns) and I'm a SoD veteran playing since August 15th, 2014. Still playing because "why not?". I consider myself the "Grinch of School of Dragons" due to SoD being the game that received the most negativity out of me (for multiple reasons).

 

In-Game Info and SoD Wiki:

I'm only in the game mainly for Wikia purposes. I only turn MMO on during battles but don't bother talk with me as I never use the chat as a form of communication. I have trained all the Dragons Species but the Thunderpede and the Scuttleclaw are my biggest favorite - my Dragon List is currently a WIP.

Because here, you ARE male or female, and you cannot change that. It's just people not understanding trans/genderfluid/other people like us exsist and refusing to admit they're wrong. People don't like people who identify as somethig they don't, so they bash them, etc. +H.o.m.o.p.h.o.b.i.c./trans.phobic people exist, and I know there could well be a ton of them here.

'Bout me:

Name: Goldenwolfmidna; Goldenwolf; Golden; Midna; etc.

Name IRL: Call me Dave, I respond

Gender/pronouns: Dysphoria, so much dysphoria. Pangender/agender/not cis.  They/them

Favorite Dragon: Skrill, my dear children. Lightning breath and a bad attitude? It's me, dragon-fied!

Favorite color: Orange, probably, then blues

What I'm like: I'm a tired, oftentimes snippy and sarcastic, human. I enjoy art and playing video games. I am extremely passionate about genders and se.xualities, so if you want a long-winded rant about how I'm a human too, PM me and tell me! I'm always happy to explain what it's like being pangendered/agendered and panromantic/ase.xual!

Other crap: I am: panromantic, meaning I can be attracted to people of any and all genders in a romantic sense; I am ase.xual, meaning I am not attracted to people in a se.xual way.

I like to draw, so if you have a request of a dragon for an artist, PM me a picture of a dragon, its backstory, and what you want. If I feel so inclned, I will complete your request.

I am a huge nerd and proud of it. I play D&D soon-to-be three times a week, as a DM one time, a Drow Swashbucker, and a Dragonborn Paladin named Ajoke in the last. Fun fact; Ameme, Ajoke's father, was posessed by Bahamut one time. Bahamut is the D&D Dragon God of Good. 

 

Adopts and OCs:

Flikrr, made by the AMAZING Chamishida!

I looked around, nose in the air. It told me there was boar near. I, fire burning hotly within myself, looked around. Sure enough, fifty paces off, more or less, was a full-grown boar. I was getting rather hungry, and a boar makes a nice meal. I stealthily approched it, thinking of the feast I'd have today.

The boar's head jerked up- great. I must have been too loud. And then I heard it as well: crunching leaves beneath a foot. It was leaf-fall, so this was no big surprise. I lunged at the boar, and it gave a shrill whine of terror before I rammed into it, scorching the fur. Within seconds, it was d'ead. I tore into it, hunger stopping all other thought until I saw a shadow and heard the hushed voices: "Is it real?" "Is that a Coalskin?" "How are we not in Valhalla yet?"

I turned. There was a group of Viking children, watching me. They speak in whispers among themselves, but I hear. I turn to look at them, and the voices fall silent. They look scared, except one. I give a ROAR and the group scatters. Not one, though. She approaches me, and says quitely, "They're not going to hurt you." I look at the Viking. She's nothing special, really. She's just braver than the rest. I like that.

I look at the girl, and think about what I'm doing. I then dip my head, slightly. A respectful bow. I respect bravery, and this child, no less, has stood to a Coalskin. In my opinion, we are the most scary dragons out there. The girl returns the bow, and she begins to walk off, and I follow. 

"You need a name." Her voice cuts the silence of the forest. I look at her. I have a name, but nothing she can pronounce. It's 'Hrrrrr', all long and dragged out, and low, very low, until the end, where it flares up into a high pitch. But this girl doesn't know that. "Flicker? Nah, too generic. Flickrr." I like this new human-name. It cuts the 'e' sound, leaving you with a harsh 'rrr' sound. We walk back, both content walking in silence.

And that's how it's been ever since. Once Holly foud her island, I have stayed to keep it save from all who wish her harm.  I am a guardian, one who will keep this land I call my home. The other dragons, like Birchbark, all accept me as a protecter, and know better than to cross me. I am kept 'in check' by Holly's Groncicles, who I do adore, as they let me run free, so long as no fires start in my wake. Dragons come and go, taken to great beyonds, and although I cannot go on adventures 'round the world, I keep my own world safe, for myself, for Holly, and for the other dragons. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brichbark, made by, again, the amazing Chamishida! Thank you so much, Chamishida!

 Birch was found by Lightning, Holly's Skrill, on a stormy day. The small Sinisterous Woodreaper, being about two months old and having a broken leg, snuggled up with the large Skrill. Holly found them some time later, and saw the leg. She quickly bound it and took the dragon home. A few months later, the small dragon was healed and had the name of Birchbark. Holly set the dragon free but the dragon wouldn't leave. Holly relented and kep the dragon, letting her roam free on the island Holly and her dragons called home. Birchbark si all grown up now, and helps to protect the island.

~~~~~~~~~

Drym, made by the wonderful KasaneLover!

How Holly managed to tame this dragon is beyone her. After Drym had eaten enough of Holly's food, they just decided to follow along after her, and now is one of the dragons of her island.

~~~~~~~~

If you're down here, then know this is a WIP. And it shall continue to be for quite a while.

Also, PM me 'wer aunel di vi darastrix' and you'll get a special dergon art!

it's to be expected on the internet, people are always going to be against something you do, say or feel- but why would it even matter to them? it's not like it's really affecting them by seeing a character with shorter hair and a taller frame lmao it's kinda dumb in my opinion, but to each their own I suppose?
I didn't know you were in the same boat as me, sorry about that, it's hard out here for us sometimes, good to stick together, right? haha

yeah, but it would make some people who are against us 'feel uncomfterable' or something and so we are shoved under the bridge, out of sight. And although it wouldn't really affect anyone, the devs make it so our characs must be cisgendered, which is annoying to me, a pan/agendered human.

The problem is that it would make the game very... confusing. In the game girls and guys have seperate clothing models. If this were the case, each gender would need their own clothing and hair design. I read somewhere that there are 63 genders and each gender would need their own clothing style to accurately represent their sexuality, that is just a huge work load for the animators. Not to mention how confusing it would be in the game. Some of the female hair styles are pretty androgynous so I guess you could use that, but the clothing is typically form-fitting and shows some of the curves. All in all, if we included one extra gender, the rest of the spectrum wouod need to be included as would well to make it fair and that is far too complicated and too much of a work load.

So, to clarify, there are a lot of genders, but we only really need three models- a male, female, and androgenous. Most genders that aren't male or female are fine being grouped in 'non-binary'. And we - or at least I - would be fine with a male model with more hairstyles.

No, dude. There are 2 genders, but TQ are not “genders” per say

Yes, trans and genderfluid people exist and it is proven by science that it's a birth condition. It has always existed, always will and people being born as trans or genderfluid are born through mere chance, and there is nothing people can do about that. You cannot choose whether or not you are; if you suppress it or try to live as another gender you will feel instinctively very unhappy deep down. It's a set thing, you've got it for life and it's impossible to change your mental gender. It's not a disease or mental illness; it's just where the foetus receives the wrong proportions of hormones during the first trimester, but otherwise trans and genderfluid people function like normal everyday human beings.

 

If you can "become" or "unbecome" trans then you were not trans to begin with. I think the term "identifying as trans" should not be a thing. That's not how it works. You don't get to choose whether you're trans, and it's deeply shameful to think that DreamWorks are ignoring basic science to keep any controversy off the table. They can make fart and poop jokes, but disrespecting their customers' basic needs in favour of more money? Yeh!

 

Unfortunately I don't think DreamWorks want to spark any sort of controversy, but Roblox did it, and nobody seems to have a problem with that. They are fully capable of just switching the player models as soon as you customise it.

Account One:

 

Nightstrike the Titan Nightmare

​Nightstrike was my First Dragon on School of Dragons

 

​Born: 30th March 2013

 

Since he's the oldest he has a tendancy to consider

himself the boss of the lot. He's the bravest and

most courageous Monsterous Nightmare, and

reached his Titan stage at the age of 5 (25 in dragon

years)

He stands as Leading Ambassador for the

Alpha Falcon Titans. He is surprisingly intelligent for

his... fire-first-ask-questions-later species of

Nightmare, and can communicate well with any

other dragons.

 

Posiedon the Thunderdrum

Poseidon's #1 passion is for ruling the sea,

whether in the air to the depths of the ocean. A

boisterous giant, he makes it clear that this is his

territory, and does not tolerate a single Dragon

Hunter ship unaccounted for.

 

Gemshard the Whispering Death

Gemshard was rescued from the cave incident

set up by Alvin the Treacherous, and raised in

good care. Interestingly, unlike his spiny hostile

brothers, gemshard's spines consisted of a hard,

crystillic substance, hence his name, which leads us to believe

that one of his ancestors may have been a

Crystal Sand Wraith, which puts a whole new

perspective on dragon heratage

 

Apophis the Whispering Death

 

​Apophis, surprisingly seemed to be the literal

personification of what a wild Whispering Death

was... and more! Apophis grew up to be

incredibly sneeky, and took pride and pleasure in

causing havok, (I'm honestly not surprised he got

along with the twins- that is, until he destroyed

their Monstrous Nightmare Gel Bombs), and hard

at hearing to anyone except for me. He does get

along with Barf and Belch though. His name

came to him when I noticed he took a keen

interest in Hyroglyphic paintings of the Egyptian

primordail snake of Chaos, and somehow seemed

to enjoy learning bedtime stories about him...

 

Spark and Ember the Zippleback

​Spark and Ember... those strange two. Spark and

Ember seem to posess different genders of

personality... Which is strange considering both

heads protrude from the same body... Anyhow,

their favourite hobbies include testing who can

make the biggest Zippleback explosion. They also 

try to be the fastest they can, even though Stormflash can easily beat them without breaking

a sweat

 

Celestio the Raincutter

 

Travelling wise, this dragon doesn't cut the flight

speed of Tootless .org the Skrill, but watch him

very carefully, and you might find half a raindrop

on your doorstep tomorrow...EXACTLY HALF

 

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY the Death Song

 

IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? Or is this just fantasy? Well it

feels like fantasy to have this wonderful dragon

around. To honour Fred hideMercury, Bohemian

Rhapsody was named on the 20th June 2019.

This gigantic bundle of joy is known for his habit of 

getting up in the morning... and then following, the

sound of “Mamaaaaa ooooooooh”... I wonder why that

is?

 

Railgun the Razorwhip

 

Stormflash the Champion Racing

 

Skrill

 

​Stormflash is the most competetive Skrill I've

ever met. He is incredibly smart, showing an

ability to understand event the most

sophisticated vocabulary (hey, I read tales of the

Norse Gods, and he understood it just fine). On

those days where we all get a little tired he

even outsmarts me. One time for Loki Day he hid

behind a bush while I looked for him, and he sat

there throwing chickens at me. It was awesome.

Feathers Galore!

When he was a newborn baby I showed him to

Hiccup, and during a long and nerdy conversation

he snuck into Hiccup's Room and tried on one of

Toothless's tails... Obviously it was way too big

for him and he didn't need it anyway, but if I've

learnt anything from my Champion Skrill, it's

that anyone, even a dragon, can dream big!

 

Discovery

Discovery is constantly curious about what

happens to the world outside her nest. Although

she's just a baby, she has already flown solo to

the Edge and back- obviously not the Twins' fault

*Ahem; and unintentionally stolen a

boneknapper egg so she could study it. (Had fun

putting that one back I might say)

 

Here’s your stupid image that I spent an hour drawing, and it taking me even longer to figure out how to use this freaking forum.

Oh my God. This forum is so inconvenient for posting regular and easy comments and keeping up with my clan.

Unfortunately, there is no way to change your avatar's gender, but this does not mean your avatar has to represent you. I have plenty of male avatars, even though I am female. Maybe your in-game avatar is not a representation of you and is just a character. Someone else. Thinking about it this way may help reduce the dysphoria.

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

This is a good bit of advice. I have a male viking alongside my two female vikings myself.

 

 

 

Another thing they could do is to turn it into a running gag. Like maybe the viking is a dude but because they happen to look like a girl EVERYONE including Hiccup's gang makes the mistake of calling them a girl and they get super mad about it.

 

 

A third option could be interesting. RP the problem. Turn it into a character who is trans but who can't get a surgery because they live in viking times so instead they have to figure out their own ways to be a boy and not all vikings around them respect that and some make honist mistakes calling him a female just like some people s.crew up in real life. Some trans-phobic RPs might kick the character for this but it could prove really interesting.

I, surprisingly, actualyl understand what you feel, and while there is no way to change a character's biological apperence, you can just have the character identify as male now as well. I'm really sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I really do think it's something that should be added to the game :D Especially to those who have been around a long time on the game and have come to know who they truly are since when they first started. Options such as those are also something that would set the game apart from others and make it more unique. Until then, if you're not comfortable with the gender of how your viking looks, as others have said, you can always make a new viking or a new account c:

Hey dude! I totally get it!

I'm a trans girl and when I first registered I registered as a boy when I didn't realise I was trans, but now whenever I play with my character it's like a weird reminder that I am not physically a woman yet, and I get a tinge of dysphoria from it again. It's really not fun, and I wish there was an option to change my character's gender so I feel more like myself again. Right now this is a minor turn-off from the game, because it reminds me of that feeling I had constantly as a kid where my gut feels like it's swallowing itself.

 

Oddly enough, I searched up how to change my character's gender. I didn't expect I'd find another trans person, let alone one that was so outspoken. Wow. What an interesting day.

If you want to make your character like a boy, I suggest putting on the Alvin outfit and using the short hairstyle that you get at the beginning of the game.
