There are roughly twice as many men as women in terms of main characters. I just wondered why this was.
I don't think the reason could be that women are less likely to survive, as there are pretty much even numbers of male and female walkers.
As for who I am counting, the 'maths' goes as follows:
Males: Lee, Kenny, Larry, Duck, Hershel, Shaun, Doug, Ben, Mark, Andy, Danny, Glenn, Vernon, Omid, Chuck, Total: 15
Females: Clementine, Carley, Lilly, Katjaa, Brenda, Christa, Brie, Molly, Total: 8 Even if we include very minor characters like Irene, Joyce, Clive or Boyd, the numbers are still way out of balance.
I wouldn't speak up if the numbers were like 60% male, 40% female as this seems to be a common theme with most games and books and stuff, but I just found it very noticeable.
