Just replayed KOTOR-2. Everywhere Revan was mantioned "she" + Onassi fall in love with her (it seems).

So why do we have HE here ?

Actually I have suggestion that KOTOR-2 picks Revan's sex same as player then it could explain, because I never played male. Can somebody confirm he saw Revan "he" in kotor-2 ?
There is no ignorance - there is knowledge.

Because during your first conversation with Atton in the holding cell on Peragus Station you can pick Revan's sex. Atton says something about the females being the worst and you can either reply in the affirmative or correct him, saying something along the lines about how long has he been in there because Revan was male. If you set Revan as male and light then he romances Bastila, and if he is set to female then she romances Carth. Revan's sex was canonically set in Drew Karpyshyn's novella Revan, published 2011.

You could choose during the character creation what sex Revan is going to have. Revan could be male or female.

Quote:
The canonical gender of Revan was established by The New Essential Chronology and the Chronicles of the Old Republic as male, and all further material has referred to the character as male with the exception of Knights of the Old Republic's sequel, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, in which the player can choose Revan's gender and alignment. Revan also appears in a vision to the player character, the Jedi Exile Meetra Surik, in the depths of Korriban's tombs.

Revan appears in the 2011 video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, also by BioWare and LucasArts, where he was voiced by Jeff Bennett. The Old Republic: Revan, a tie-in novel to The Old Republic by Drew Karpyshyn explains what happened to Revan and the Exile after the events of the two games. While creating the initial story of Revan, BioWare's game designers realized they needed a good antagonist, and they developed the character of Darth Malak to explain how and why Revan lost his powers and memories. With the release of The Old Republic, Lucasfilm Ltd. executive Leland Chee confirmed at Celebration VI that Revan's appearance in The Old Republic established the character's canonical appearance in Knights of the Old Republic as the character model with a mullet hairstyle.Revan is the focus of a series of four interconnected Flashpoints, or group raids, that end with Revan disappearing in a flash of violet light. Revan's survival was finally confirmed in the "Legacy of the Rakata" Flashpoint that was released in The Old Republic's Game Update 2.9, and he appears as the primary antagonist of the Digital Expansion Shadow of Revan, where he serves as the final boss of the Yavin storyline and the Temple of Sacrifice Operation.
