Greg Weisman's latest Magic: The Gathering novel, War of the Spark: Forsaken, may have thwarted fans' expectations about Chandra Nalaar's romantic relationship with Nissa, and changed her bisexual/pansexual sexuality that the lore has developed for years, but now it seems that we have a clear answer despite how the poorly-reviewed novel depicted the pyromancer planeswalker.
When a fan asked Mark Rosewater if Chandra is pansexual, the MTG head designer took it to his Blogatog to provide an answer that defined that term: "I’m horrible with terminology. She’s attracted to others regardless of gender. What’s that called?"
So does Rosewater's description make Weisman's words non-canon? Well, at least he provided a clearer answer compared to the official statement that Wizards of the Coast addressed about the criticisms, and at least his Blogatog is not blocked in China, Russia, and other countries, as far as we know.
Weisman recently responded to the controversy, admitting that his depiction of Chandra in Forsaken is "understably negative".
Have you always seen Chandra as pansexual? Feel free to discuss in the comments section below.
