Yuna's Heterochromia *slight spoilers, kind of*

#1VetisTheWickedPosted 4/29/2014 3:54:38 PM
does yuna have two diferent eye colors because al bhed always have green eyes so being half al bhed she has some sort of eye color mutation? she doesnt appear to have any sort of chromosomal abnormality or chimerism or anything. is there a story or symbolic reason she has the condition?

It's because she's half Al Bhed.

The Al Bhed all have Blonde hair, green irises, and swirl pupils. Her being half Al Bhed is the reason.

I don't get it, though. Why would her half-genes act on one eye, and not even giving her the swirl?

The Al Bhed thing has nothing to do with it. It's just a rare genetic trait.

No, it is because of her Al Bhed heritage.

I wouldn't mind that, if you can provide such explanation (a link to some explanation would be fine, too, if it's quite lengthy).

The thing is, okay she's half Al-Bhed, but let's say humans, they have different eye colors too. Just because one of the parents had green eyes does not mean the child will have ONE green eye. He could inherit a pair green eyes, or just completely go for a different color (the other parent's, or a new one). The one-eye thing is an extremely rare mutation, so "she's half Al-Bhed" seems too convenient for my taste. It's like they make it out to be as if it's the "normal" thing in Spira. Which doesn't make sense to me. And yes, I may be overthinking it right now XD
