One character that new players might be curious about is Bloodhound; many might ask if “Bloodhound is a boy or a girl,” possibly without awareness of other gender identities.

Bloodhound Apex Legends lore

Bloodhound’s real name is Blódhundr, and they are a non-binary person who identifies with they/them pronouns. Bloodhound was trained in “the Old Ways” by their uncle Artur, a philosophy that is based on Old Norse mythology and rejects the use of technology. However, as players know, Bloodhound mixes both their hunting prowess with technological aid, such as their scanner.

Comics and limited-time events have expanded on Bloodhound’s backstory, most notably in Old Ways, New Dawn, which provided missions as Bloodhound that culminated in an emotional cinematic moment.

Bloodhound is generally a secretive person, making their identity and personality a mystery not only to the other Legends but to players of Apex Legends. That enigmatic aspect of Bloodhound likely led players to wonder more about their background.
