The Theory

Many people think that characters in Keeper of the Lost Cities are LGBTQ+, which is normal, considering that there are many LGBTQ+ people in the world.


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 and demiromantic.


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


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


Keefe is widely headcanoned to be bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or gay. Some people ship him with Fitz (Feefe), Dex (Deefe), or Tam (Kam).


Tam is headcanoned by many as gay, aromantic, nonbinary, and/or asexual, and shipped with Keefe (Kam) due to them hating each other, similar to Drarry. He is also headcanoned as bisexual.


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


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


Wylie is headcanoned as gay and/or a trans boy (born in a female body but identifies as a male).


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

A sexual or gender identity that does not correspond to established ideas of sexuality and gender, especially heterosexual norms. (The word "q***r" originated as a slur, meaning "strange" or "wrong", but many members of the LGBTQ+ community have reclaimed the slur and use it either to describe their sexuality or as an umbrella-term referring to non-straight and non-cis identities. However, some still view the word as homophobic. On this page, the word is not intended to offend anyone. We are not using it against any person, real or fictional. It is merely present in order to help inform and educate people in a safe space.)


Someone who is unsure about their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.[13]
