The engineers robes in the background seem more white? Are they engineer women? How do you picture engineer women would be like? If we will see any more of the engineers at all in the films, will we get to meet them? Or perhaps engineers are hermaphrodites?

I have never come across any evidence of a female pretense with the engineers. Everything I have read has suggested that the engineers nay have lost the capacity to reproduce in the way typical humans do. Could you explain why the ones you identified would be female?

It was just a thought. They stand at a distance (separated from the others) and their robes seem more whitish?

I see what you are saying with this image. The four in the back ground appear luminescent or whiter as you said. Tough to say since it is a still of a likely CGI shot. They do seem visually different in this shot though.

On a different note- maybe they were the more important ones. In many cases, the ones who want to find out what is going on stand at a distance and observe what happens- sending "lesser" ones to actually get up close and personal and execute the deed.

I don't see any female looking Engineers in that scene.

However, Covenant will show us [dead] female Elders, probably in a flashback scene, as you could see them in the leaked temple images.

What I find interesting is that Alex Kozhanov AKA Gutalin, was hired to work on concepts for PROMETHEUS. Some of that work contained what appeared to be female Engineers. Perhaps they were considered for PROMETHEUS at one point? 

His website THE ART OF ALEX KOZHANOV- GUTALIN used to have a lot of male and female Engineer concepts, but they have since disappeared, apart from the two below-

Well, since there was a DNA-match between humans and engineers, I suppose there must (have) be(en) engineer women somewhere?

Well indeed some Prometheus Concept work had Female Engineers, they did not have breasts though... just nipples.

Ridley had said the Engineers could create life in other ways.. and the Sacrificial Scene was just how they chose to do so.

and Alien Covenant WILL show Female Engineers as they are in those disaster scenes...

However they may not be Engineers as in LV-223 ones... but then also the Paradise ones which include Females, could be the same as the Sacrificial Engineer Scene Engineers and Elders and the LV-223 ones are thus different...

Biological Terminators created for same reasons we created David.
