In the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, “Out of Darkness”, we were introduced to a new and mysterious character called Fulcrum. Hera and Fulcrum stay in communication to trade information and supplies. Though Fulcrum’s voice actor did not appear in the credits, we have a strong suspicion that Fulcrum is a woman.
Earlier today, I decided to open Audacity and figure it out. Here’s what I found:
I was playing around with Fulcrum’s audio in Audacity and changed the pitch. I also included different pitches for Zeb’s and Kanan’s voices. Keep in mind, though, that Zeb’s and Kanan’s voices weren’t masked like Fulcrum’s voice. However, even though their pitches are higher, they’re still distinctly male—at least, in my opinion. Fulcrum’s voice comes across as female. This is not proof that Fulcrum is a woman, but I just thought it’d add to the conversation.

Update: Rebels Report also analyzed the clip and changed it by four and six semi-tones.
