​Illi Anna Heger was born in 1978 in Berlin. They have a background in science and IT. They currently work as a freelance author and comic artist in Munich. Their comics document graphically, tell biographic stories, analyse societal structures and aim to make theory more tangible. In 2009, they started developing pronouns like "sier" and "xier" to fill a language gap in German and provide an alternative to she and he. These pronouns represent one aspect of gender inclusive language and are used in books, articles, games and even Netflix series.
