    Just wondering, seeing that you are of color why is the trio all white? and I also feel that only the Woods are diverse in ethnicity (not race or nationality{also mainly white}), but not Gavaldon. It’s not very diverse. It’s only white in there. No hate here because you at least put people of color. And in the SGE world, how did only white people immigrate to the Reader World because if there is no nationality or race, all the normal (not Evil/Good) people would see other people as equal (no “racism”)and immigrate for the same reasons, especially safety.

        like the woods people wouldnt hate each other because they dont have tight knit community of each ethnicity. they live in each kingdom with harmony so they could leave if there oppression or depression in their kingdoms, so did the white Elders from a few generations later wiped out the colored villagers out bc they thought they they were dark and thought they could be evil and such?

        Well I’m not Soman but weren’t most fairy takes Russian or something??? Because in Russia people are mostly white,also I don’t think there is any race as we would know it in the endless woods

          Most of the well known tales where from European countries.

          i know there is no race, so the people in the woods would coexist peacefully because here is nothing to discriminate for and already are fine with others despite their skin color there, but gavaldon seems pretty white to me. so a perfect storybook village is all white?

        I think Gavaldon is supposed to be sort of like a Russian town, because most fairy tales originated in Russia, Russia is mostly white and it’s also quite a small town so it may just be that over many decades of people breeding that each family is related in some way meaning that there is just one standard skin colour,I’m not sure if that is right but it’s always possible

        Easy answer to this — I wanted the trio to look like Disney movies, so I could subvert it. All witches, princesses and princes look the same in most Disney movies, hence why my characters look like them. As the series goes on, you’ll start to see why this comes into play… 🙂
