It would not allow her to take innocent blood.

I think Tiff even said something to the effect, “What’s wrong with you today?” Addressing the sword itself.

JZ: as described earlier (be me), you can get back sheaths designed to allow swords to be drawn while still on the back, but you are correct that most are simply ‘normal’ sheaths placed on the back for ease of travel

Like when the priests attempted to reverse the curse, they instead trigger a backlash that renders them female. But if this was not a curse but instead a cure. A cure that was using powerful magic to restore a natural state then the power of that backlash can be better understood. Or I could just be dead wrong.

Has anyone given any thought that the curse as always been broken? That it was in fact broken by Faden unintentionally?. Think about the attitude towards woman Tiffany learned. She would have learned that primarily from her father. And with an attitude like that dear ol’ dad may not have been that thrilled to have sired a girl. Could it be that the curse that was placed on her was just a means to create a son where nature had dictated otherwise?. That her male existence was in fact the artificial existence all along? Just a thought, so what do you think?

While there are apparently sheathes to carry huge swords on the back, they are only for travel – you cannot draw a sword from one without taking the sheathe off your back first, any more than you can dig something out of the bottom of a backpack without taking the thing off.

But Animals he liked like a dog. He loved women and aproved of them and like the old joke goes thought every Man Should “OWN” at least 2!
He saw them Literally as Valuable Objects . Really is a worse Attitude than “I hate Woman” to think “I Pity Women it is my Duty to by a Kind OWNER, Its not there fault there CURSED to be Born honorless Women! My Mother Was a Woman After all! ”

His dad was a real Misogynist, but Typh was actually the more dangerous type of Hate,more insidious.

You didn’t unless you count the post you’re responding to… where you would have also read that it is what *I THINK* is going on.

I hope the reveal isn’t the end! I’m not the storyteller here but I think I like the characters enough that I’m interested in them and their stories far beyond the current story arc involving Tiffany’s transformation.
