I'd switch genders if you wish, but the style of play my character would do simply would not work with a male. Sorry :/
I could switch if you want me to, but it'd require me to completely redo my character, though my partner would still work. Yeah, I could redo the character if you don't mind a bit of strife between the group once they get into the digital world. Could even make it work with the faith crest in such a way that'd really show the quality, something that Melody would have done subtly. You mind? It'd take a bit for me to re-edit my post, something that'd be required.
As to the corpses thing, as far as I can tell corpses disappear in the digital world (this would include humans, mind you). So yeah a bit more description would be good, but it'd have to be from situation to situation. As I said before, I look forward to how DKDBSD pulls it off.
