Didn't he have a rapier? I will look later in the summer updates. Summer Update 40:
"Nonsense! I'm telling you, we should do it more. The enemy is." He stepped back and put his hand on his hip, beside the hilt of his rapier. "Anyway, Prince's privilege. I knew I'd want to talk to you after diplomatic rounds."

Oh. I was just going by appearance.

So are we allowed to say that Tramennis is gay yet without starting an all-out flame-war (oh dear God, no pun intended but what alternative term is there)? I started to suggest it when I first posted my comment back in January, but decided not to shake things up until there was more proof; after all, Tramennis could have simply turned out to be effeminate but straight (like the Scarlet Pimpernel, perhaps). However, after LIAB Text 42 it would seem rather absurd to suggest that Tramennis was straight but was denied the throne because he was a bit effeminate, which would be the alternative interpretation of King Slateley's line: '"So who cares if he's a— If his Signamancy is less...than manly."
