18. How does this deity stand in terms of gender and sexuality? (historical and/or UPG) I’m afraid that this is going to be a fairly short, fairly boring topic. Wayland presents as a cisgendered, heterosexual male in the lore, and in my own experience of him. I do not know of any UPG to challenge this, though if he is considered one of the Vanir, it then it stands to reason he could potentially be bisexual. I have not yet heard of anyone encountering such a manifestation, but there is a first time for everything.
