I have played many times and through different routes. Usually, if I pick a female MC and with no gender preference for romance I get Xelara, not Xelef. Have you changed it? I usually use the same play saving at different points to see all the possibilities but I like Xelara, Dara and Rozerîn (actually i like both Azad/Ashti the same). I can't find the save btw so I was starting over and Xelara keeps being Xelef... is it a bug or the new cannon? Just to be sure.
