Default Re: Green vs. Yellow

That was something I've been wondering about for awhile - Afra's skin and eye color. Though it seems only he has such outstanding attributes, in the latter part of the series, other Capellans aren't mentioned as having odd skin...must wonder what the Mrdini really thought of Afra when they met him in person!

How long would it take for such a change to become apparent in human genomes to 'breed true' each generation? Remember that for us, yellowed eyes denote jaundice, though that's usually in the whites of the eyes, not the iris.

Always made me think of F'lar's amber eyes - that slightly golden brown tone...
