LotF Character Eye Color Headcanons and also general blathering about it
Jack Merridew: The only character with a canon eye color that’s emphasized twice; a bright but pale blue. They’re wild, intense eyes; some might describe them as frosty in hue, but a more apt comparison would be a jolt of blueish lightning. In all his school pictures they’d turn out a very light grey, which gives him a strange, otherworldly look. I feel like adults back home would tell him it’s his best feature.
Ralph: A warm, orange-y brown. Something about them draws you to them, like burning embers tempt a moth. They comfort, strangely. They also compliment his look very well– golden hair and copper eyes, sculpted from the finest materials.
Simon: Described in the book as having eyes “so bright they had deceived Ralph into thinking him delightfully gay and wicked”. Personally, I like to view them as hazel, the sort that start out from the pupil with streams of gold that flow into greens, like a polar panorama of a deep forest in the early morning.
Piggy: They’re difficult to make out beneath his thick lenses, but they’re gray. His eyes are steaming cauldrons of molten metal, constantly brimming and bubbling with practical knowledge, waiting desperately to be poured out and used.
Roger: Dark brown, nearly black. Like a deep, mysterious, unknowable void that you can only glance at for a second before getting paranoid about what’s waiting in the darkness for you.
