In that regard, she sort of does resemble Atalanta (although in mythology Atalanta was not actually one of the Amazons, she was a huntress and athlete) she would challenge her suitors to a footrace to prove themselves worthy of her.
Lorelai also compares herself to Miakis when she finds out that Miakis used to challenge all the guys she grew up with, saying "perhaps you and I are not so different..."
Lorelai's relationship with Zweig is interesting, though. She doesn't seem to be attracted to him in any sexual or romantic kind of way (personally I think Zweig likes men), but she clearly does respect him as a scholar who knows a lot about the Sindar civilization. And she never challenges him physically, even though he's a decent fighter. He's more of a brains over brawn kind of guy. I'd like to know more about what happened between them before and after events in S5.

But what makes you believe Zweig is gay? He never saw any signs he's attracted to men. On the other hand he might like Lorelai (remember the bath scene?)

Exactly - he jumps in the bath with two young naked women and is more interested in chatting about Sindarin mysteries than anything else.
Plus Zweig seems quite flattered that Georg Prime offers to escort him through the final dungeon.

I think Wolk means women who play TYPICALLY male roles, as in jobs that are NORMALLY left to men, but not always. If there is a woman capable of doing the job just as well as, if not better than, any man who is qualified, then some might consider her an Amazon.
Most countries in Suikoden do treat sexes equally, and have women who lead armies. I'd say Highland is the most typically male dominated country in Suikoden because they have no women in their army, and their princess is just used to ensure the royal blood line continues (Jillia says herself as a princess and as a woman there is little I can do) the only time we see a woman fight for Highland is when Jowy enlists Lucia's help in fighting the State.
Wouldn't you be flattered if you had the honor to be escorted by one of the Queen's Knights?

Guess it's Pahn's feminine side i believe.

Writing journal entries about what food you ate today is hardly a girly or boyish thing to do, it's just an interest or pass time. Sonya's journal entries could be seen as girly because of how she writes about her feelings for Teo, but then a gentleman shouldn't be prying into his dad's girlfriend's thoughts, you sick little pervert. No wonder Cleo keeps her diary padlocked.
