The Theory[edit | edit source]

Many people think that characters in Keeper of the Lost Cities are LGBTQ+, a likely occurrence due to the high population of LGBTQ+ citizens of the world.

Dex[edit | edit source]

Many people think Dex is bisexual. This is shown through many instances and ships such as Detz/FedEx. Some people think that even though Dex doesn't hate Fitz anymore, he can't possibly like "Wonderboy" even if he stopped with the nickname, but others believe that the nickname is just a way of Dex trying to hide his feelings. He is also headcanoned as genderfluid, pansexual, nonbinary, and/or demiromantic. He is often shipped with Keefe (Keefex/Dexeefe).

Biana[edit | edit source]

Many people headcanon Biana as bisexual (Bi-ana), but others headcanon her as lesbian, dubbing her "Lesbiana" and pairing her with Sophie (Sophiana/Biophie), Marella (Marelliana/Biella), Linh (Linhiana/Binh), or both Linh and Sophie (Solinhiana).

Sophie[edit | edit source]

Some people think Sophie is bisexual, asexual, pansexual, nonbinary, demigirl, gray-ace, or lesbian, though it is not clear. She is shipped with Linh (Solinh/Lophie), Biana (Sophiana/Biophie), both Linh and Biana (Solinhiana), and/or Marella (Sophella/Marphie).

Keefe[edit | edit source]

Keefe is widely headcanoned to be bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or gay. Some people ship him with Fitz (Feefe/Keefitz), Dex (Deefe/Keefex), Tam (Teefe/Kam), or both Biana and Tam. He flirts with most people, so there is not much evidence to hint on who he likes other than maybe Sophie. He has also been headcanoned as trans, genderfluid, and nonbinary.

Tam[edit | edit source]

Tam is headcanoned by many as gay, bisexual, nonbinary, transgender, demiromantic, demisexual, aromantic and/or asexual, and shipped with Keefe (Teefe/Kam) due to them hating each other, similar to Drarry (Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter from the Harry Potter franchise), and with Fitz (Titz/Fam), Tam likes Fitz in some way, he likes his hair and suit. He has also been headcanoned as transgender due to it being impossible for identical twins to be born of opposite sexes.

Linh[edit | edit source]

Linh is mainly headcanoned as asexual and/or lesbian and liking Sophie (Solinh/Lophie), Biana (Linhiana/Binh), both Sophie and Biana (Solinhiana), or Marella (Marellinh/Linhella). She has also been headcanoned as trans, similar to Tam.

Fitz[edit | edit source]

Fitz is widely headcanoned as bisexual, transgender, gay, pansexual, genderfluid, aromantic, and many others. People ship him with Dex (Detz/FedEx), again due to their supposed rivalry in the beginning of their friendship. People also ship him with Tam (Titz/Fam), or Keefe (Feefe/Keefitz) due to them being best friends.

Wylie[edit | edit source]

Wylie is headcanoned as gay and/or a trans boy (assigned female at birth but is a male).

Marella[edit | edit source]

Marella is headcanoned as being lesbian, pansexual, or bisexual and being romantically involved with Sophie (Sophella/Marphie), Biana (Marelliana/Biella), Stina (Stinella) or Linh (Marellinh/Linhella). She is also headcanoned as aromantic and/or demisexual.
