Depending on the story, they could be either. With static stories, there are some with male and some with female protagonists. For the interactive stories, typically you define if the main character is male or female. For the cinematic or visual stories, you can choose which character is the main character for each story from a predefined set. These sets, also referred to as Scenarios, allow for the creation of parallel stories being set in the same time and place as other stories and reusing existing assets such as sets and characters, making them faster to produce while still being original and new content. In these cases, there are both male and female characters you may choose from, but changing the character will drastically change the plot line of the story, so it's not the same as with interactive stories where the plot is generally the same with just a change of gender.
