What's with the Marguerit palatte swap? by coffeelemental

Well, the long and the short of it is – accuracy!

My big thing in all of my fan works is that I try to adhere to canon as much as I can, while also having fun with the gaps in it here and there. Marguerit was one such gap. While we have an existing model for Bart and know what he looks like, there’s been no indication of how Paul and Marguerit may have appeared.

I based Marguerit’s appearance after a badge I found in one of her lockers, although the picture on that badge was in black and white and I just had to guess at her coloration. However, the UWE dev team did an AMA a while back and when I asked about the badge, they confirmed to me that it was just a placeholder – basically meaning my Marg was wrong. :P

The surname Maida originates in southern Italy, but we also know Marguerit was born in the Mongolian states. Whether Mongolian space is 100% ethnically Mongolian or not is unclear, since the Torgals are associated with them and it sounds like the Mongolians grabbed up a lot of abandoned colonies after the expansion war. It’s entirely possible that the Mongolian states are actually pretty diverse.

So, with all that in mind, I decided to rework Marguerit a bit using the few canon clues we have. Black hair and brown eyes is a better bet for someone of potential Italian/Mongolian lineage. I will, however, miss ginger Marg. Red was a good fit for her.

Brand new comic, whoo! Hopefully everything's in order, but if something's not, let me know and I'll fix it ASAP.
