file Great Symposyum wording

Hi there,
I've two versions of this card, which did not coincide with the text of the card list:Name: Great Symposium
[HttB:R/B1]
Cardtype: Master
Clan: Kiasyd
Only one Great Symposium can be played in a game.
Search your crypt for {a} Kiasyd (shuffle afterward), reveal them, and move them to your uncontrolled region, then distribute 3 blood from the blood bank among one or more Kiasyd in your uncontrolled region.
Artist: Peter Bergting

One says "search for a Kiasyd.", the other "search for any Kiasyd, reveal them". My question is: can you search for several Kiasyds and put them all on your uncontrolled region (any, them) or just for one (a)?
I'm riddled phantastique with all these pronoun shenanigans!! :)

Thanks a lot,

You're searching for a single vampire. (a)
We don't know the gender of that vampire, so the card uses singular they to represent that ambivalence. (them)

Yes you search only one. When in doubt, check the codex codex-of-the-damned.org/en/card-search.html?card=Great+Symposium

Search the crypt for only one Kiasyd, not any number. [ANK 20210304]

VTES use they/them as gender-neutral singular pronouns. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singular_they . It is confusing, but was deemed as the best alternative.

Vampires are not people thus "it" would be a solid option...
