This page needs to be edited, gender issues are running amuck. Nocturnal is a female.

No, Nocturnal is not a female. Daedric Princes do not have a gender. "She" just appears as a female.

Lots of Nocturnal Edits and Updates Edit
Just did a lot of editting to this page to update it from recent events from Skyrim. If anyone has any edits or corrections I'd appreciate it.
I added a note to the effect that she and Azura may be sisters, at least according to one source. Their realms definitely overlap. 18.104.22.168 00:39, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yesterday I edited the obviously errounus term "daedric queen" to "daedric prince" in this article, today someone has replaced it with "daedric princess", a term that I don't believe I have seen in the canon lore. In all instances I can recall both "male" and "female" Daedra Lords are refered to as "prince". That we in this world use "prince" for a male and "princess" for a female is totally irrelevant. The term Daedra Lord can be used if that is prefered but unless there's a canon source mentioning "daedric princess(es)" it is quite obvious that "daedric prince" is the correct term.
I agree with you. Daedric Prince is politically correct for the lore of the world. Alternatively, for instance, the word Jarless isn't used for female Jarls in Skyrim, although it may seem appropriate to us in our world. That said, just a comment on the title-system in-game in general, the words High King and High Queen are used to differentiate gender, as well as Count and Countess. Despite this, there is no proof of any such thing as a Daedric Princess, so I say change it. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 10:20, November 29, 2011 (UTC)
Daedric princes have no gender as i recall , an example is boethia who appears female in Skyrim but was male in oblivion. so princess is wrong, i'm with you on this.
well, on the loading screen for skyrim, it refers to her as a daedric mistress. just saiyan
This is a very minor point, but Nocturnal's appearance in her statue in Skyrim is anything but "nondescript." "Slinky" might be a better word: she's got a very good figure and is, shall we say, lightly dressed. Her actual in-game appearance is quite a bit harder-faced than this, though, as if she had aged.
All in all, I think it's an excellent article and reflects well on whoever wrote the bulk of it. 22.214.171.124 00:45, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
Some quick trivia I feel should be posted here:
On the PC version of Skyrim, you can equip Nocturnal's clothes. To equip her full outfit, go into the console and type
If done on a male character, the body will look just as feminine as on a female character.
Also, it seems on the console version, if you equip this on your wife/companion using the console command, the /removeallitems command will not remove Nocturnal's clothes from that person.

So if someone was a Nightingale and died, would they serve nocturnal forever? Or would they eventually be sent to Aetherius and there soul be recycled?
Daedric Princess? Edit
Well I just found here that Nocturnal is referred to as a Daedric Princess, so I don't know.
Well that's got to be either a simple oversight, or perhaps a hint that the story is fiction and inaccurate.
They are always called Princes because the terms is not gender specific, and neither are the Daedra themselves. The terms simply means that they are powerful rulers in Oblivion, but since none of them control all of Oblivion, they are not Kings.
