How can you know between priest and priestess ?

High Valyrian doesn't use separate words for priest and priestess. Think of it the way that English has the profession "writer" - there's no distinction in name between a male writer or a female writer. When asked to translate voktys, priest or priestess should both be accepted answers (unless the sentence clearly indicates otherwise, e.g. Vala voktys issa "The man is a priest").
