All the women of the Alpha Clan are known to have strong wills and want to live independently of men. Because of this a lot of them are stereotyped as lesbians. Phoenix in particular is a big time male hater and loves taking her frustration against men out on the bounties she catches. All the men of the Alpha Clan find them difficult to swoon. Most male members of the Alpha Clan marry outside of thier clan, but somehow the Alpha Clan endures. More than likely, the Alpha Clan increases by adopting members such as Io was.
