X or Y.

HE is a nightbird solitary and discreet. SHE is a confident, beautiful and enterprising woman.
HE is SHE, SHE is HE.
A body for two people. This woman embodies all what he delivers, what he would be without never admitting it. SHE only exists in his subconscious. She translates his desires, his impulses, his repressed fantasies.
