I just wanted to visualize skin tone and hair color. BUT...
omg. I fail so bad. For the longest time ever, I've always thought Araris had black hair and from the start, I saw Miles with blond hair. GAH, when I found out they were brothers I was like, "OH HECKS NAW." And then in AF, it mentions Araris had brown hair which threw me off completely. Poo. So I fixed that, despite how unhappy I was about it.
And then Aldrick. I've pictured him kinda looking like Haar from Fire Emblem (except buffer and without the eyepatch, duh) --> [link]
Of course, that was thrown out the widow too when I found out that he was dark skinned and had a beard. (I still have no idea what his hair color is though..)
So probably the most accurate design I have right now is Septimus. Because he was sorta dead before the series started and only appears in flashbacks. Drat. >___>
