Don't know if I'll ever get to the bottom of the meaning of that word.
Either way, the concept of that alone is so making me favor female Portugal more. It seems so delicate and sentimental (don't know if that the right word here?)
(And so Portuguese I don't even know why)
She(or he) make such an interesting character. The more I read, the more I look, only make me love them more. Portugal make amazing contrast to Spain, although the male version almost looks like his twin. I just know he'll give off such different air it'll be no trouble telling them apart.
For me, Portugal is so much more sensitive and delicate than Spain. As a woman, she has a masculine side to her that allow her to survive among all the males around her. As a man, he has a gentle side that differentiate him from Spain. (well, since my Spain is one step next to a lunatic, Portugal has a lot more sanity in him)
Having said that, I'm never going to drop a sadistic trait in both of them, especially the female Portugal. Even Spain can't mess with her.
I just love how these concept of each countries fit the character so perfectly. Even if it sometimes seems 180 to what we see in Hetalia.
