Pyro officially a girl?
This was what the original TF2 Spy Update blog entry looked like. They quickly editted it to its current form.
Notice the change in wording? I wonder if this was an honest gibe at the TF2 community or if it was a leak? Hrrmmph!!
It's definately a stab at the community. People have been speculating over the Pyro's gender for a while but there hasn't been a definitive answer. I think we'll find out in his/her 'Meet the Team' video, which hopefully will be released with this update.
Pyro is obvs a robot. Usually you can pretty much understand what people are saying through gas masks unless the speaker has a serious problem with HIS OR HER vocal chords, so therefore it's a robot, and a badly built one at that, because all it does is set people on fire.
It's like if Sgt. Bash were a humanoid.
one of the maps where every class has a locker in the starting room has a purse in the pyro locker. So ya. I dont think they will ever say the gender, its to much of a mind game at the monent. My guess will be some back shot of the pyro in the meet the pyro video that hints at a female form but that's about it.

" Pyro is OFFICIALY a girl! Hahaha look that up! ---- > http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/4607/pyroisagirl.jpg "They could change that down the line and claim one of the developers slipped it in without them knowing (when really they put it in to play mind games with us again). It's by no means official.
The pyro is Abe Lincoln
(from the official tf2 wiki)
"There seems to be evidence that the Pyro may in fact be Abraham Lincoln, former president of the United States. The original Pyro of the BLU team in 1850 looks similar to Abraham Lincoln, and when Radigan Conagher built both Blutarch and Redmond Mann life-extending machines, apparently a third was built on April 14th for an unknown user. Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14th, and supposedly died on the 15th, leaving the possibility that he did not die, and is using a life-extending machine to be the Pyro we all know today. However, the disproving factors are that he was shot in 1865, 29 years before the machines were built in 1894, and Lincoln seems to have gotten much shorter and gained some weight. "
" @Azteck said:Was never a huge Metroid person, so I can't say for myself. I just kinda went "Huh. Okay" at it." @FlamingHobo said:Not really. It was pretty awesome. "" I hope Pyro doesn't, it would kind of spoil the magic. "Sorta like finding out that Samus was a girl? "
But on topic: These are the kinds of things that make me love Valve. They are so.. community oriented.
Ok i noticed something intresting.... those who have Poker at the inventory, know that The heavy is in that game, well as an unlockable you can have the TF2 deck, on that deck is the Red queen as scouts mom without a top, and red underwear holding a blanket of some sort.... anyways but on the blue queen is a random girl with blonde pig tails, and a blue bikini, with blue boots. Rather intresting... could it be the pyro?
