Default Stripes?

My mind is failing me...Jeran and Cera and Larak all had white streaks like Damia, right? So it's possible that their children have streaky hair too?

My memory is awful, too. Did they all have dark hair, the same as Damia, or were some of them lighter?

For some reason I have Jeran and Cera in my head as blond, but I have no idea whether that's canon, or brain malfunction.

Damia has dark hair. I know Rojer and Thian had darker hair, and Laria had blond hair. Don't remember that Jeran and Cera's hair were ever really mentioned.

Actually, the covers on the books are wrong; Laria has dark hair. I think Romas took some artistic license with making the girls blond like Afra, and the boys black-haired like Damia.

Jovian - in my head I have Kaltia as blond, since she has her father's yellow eyes. I also picture Zara as completely silver-haired like her grandmother, but neither one has ever had anything mentioned in canon like that.

I was sure the book actually mentioned the blond hair!

I seem to remember that too. Would go well with Kaltia's super-sensitive skin. The Mrdini homeworld really wasn't the right place for her.

I remember thinking it was blond too, and then being very surprised when it mentioned she had dark hair. Don't recall which book it was, though. I still love the Romas covers, though.

I don't suppose you can provide a quote where it mentions Laria has dark hair? My brain is refusing to remember this.

I'll see if I can find it. It doesn't say the specific color; it just says dark. Possibly somewhere around the line that describes Laria as a "classic beauty".
