In the real world.


And on Teragard as well.

The previous discussions largely sum it up, it's due to the UV levels encountered. House Charron's ancestry goes back to a region where UV was relatively high, which encouraged the particular genetic traits Oreb now demonstrates.

An entire world of humans (and elves, and gnomes) will likely display quite a wide variation.

Whilst many Teragardians have now moved closer to the schism, they weren't always so reliant on it. But that's information for another Teragardian info dump, which feels like something to save for the future.

Hope this helps this discussion.

...You don't actually think Saradomin was blue as a human, right? x]
It's a side-effect of his ascension - pretty sure he explicitly says that in Sliske's Endgame if you ask him. V got lava abs, Saradomin got blue skin -shrug-
Edit: Yep, checked the transcript. He says he doesn't know why he got blue skin as a product of his transformation, indicating he didn't have it as a mortal.
Mods pls notice me

I see my stab at humor was completely lost on you. I don't think he has Argyria, lol.

I have always assumed it was a result of his ascension to godhood. I never questioned that but I must have missed or forgotten this little strip of dialogue confirming it.

Something else I've noticed is remarkably noticeable about Oreb is he somewhat resembles one of those 'chaos' people from Warhammer 40k that are enemies of the 'god-emperor' in what he wears?
