WRITING MEME: DAY TWO: How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?

I think I tend to average around 3-10 per story, I think.  Usually closer to the lower end of that spectrum, but with Wind Spirits in hand and several other epic ideas in mind, I have to wonder how that's going to work out.  Wind Spirits has a stupidly large supporting cast that are named, even though it has maybe five main characters.  Not sure if I should "count" that or not.

But, gender wise, I'd say I tend to have more female characters than male.  I'm not really sure why this is, but large chunks of my casts tend to be of the "fairer" sex.  Certainly most of my main character's are.

Hell, let's see... All the ideas I have at least fleshed out:

Wind Spirits - Nikaya, female
Tier - Marideth, female
Gangrene - Claudia, female
Mistress Mary - Alec, male
Mirror Mirror - Joe, female
Shifters - Precious, female
Land of the Rising Sun - Nami, female
Digits - Christine, female
Dollface - Jack, female
Wayward Dreaming - Mark, FTM

So... 2 of 10. That's 1/5th. Wow. XD I should maybe think about evening this up a little.

------------ And yes, I'm only doing these on workdays, rather than sequentially. XD
