adventures in eyes

Hmmm -- if I make the sorcerers in this world all have mismatched eyes, that means another character will have to overlook my heroine's if she's to be ignorant.

Now, while this character is hubristic on the order of advanced Greek tragedy, that does strike me as improbable, especially given the years involved.

I shall have to give her sectoral heterochromia, instead. Perhaps have the other character laugh at the notion that it could mean being a sorcerer.

And I may give another character mismatched eyes. Without his being a sorcerer. He observes that perhaps it was best that his parents gave him to the Church, even without needing the training, because it was a symptom. But it gives him some backstory.
