The Maerynians are a race of aquatic aliens in the Sentinels universe. While most Maerynians appear male, including the playable hero Tempest, they are actually a single-gender race. Because of this, any relationship involving Tempest or any of the other Maerynians is complicated in regards to LGBT representation. While male pronouns are exclusively used when referring to Tempest, the creators have specifically identified him as non-binary.
