Why Is My Guppy Continuously Following My Swordtail?

I have two male guppies in my tank (yellow one is Harold, black one is Kumar), and I just got a brand new orange swordtail (named Drake of Drake and Josh). I have noticed my black guppy ALWAYS follows and stays right up close to the swordtail. Are they new brothers? Why is Kumar doing this to poor Drake?

It doesn't mean that drake is a girl. Female guppies are larger than males so when male guppies are kept without any females and they see a larger livebearer they hope it is female.
Keep an eye on it. You may want to separate them if the guppies are chasing Drake constantly, it could stress poor Drake out.
