Man, they really wanted to hammer home the idea Mr. Schnee does not belong.
Notice how one of these things is not like the other? He’s the only one whose name doesn’t start with W. It’s also the only name that doesn’t come from a Germanic language. (Jacques is French and ultimately goes back to Hebrew. Weiss is German, Winter goes back to Old English and German, and possibly even further than that, Whitley seems to be English, and Willow comes from Old German or Dutch)
He’s also the only one who isn’t naturally white haired.
He went white over time.
Guess that means he married in.
I have to wonder if this is why Winter and Weiss both rather be huntresses. Since at the moment, Willow doesn’t seem to be too involved with the actual operation of the company, despite possibly being the daughter of its founder. Maybe they weren’t ever going to be in charge at all…
Especially since Whitley seems to be daddy’s favorite. (He’s the one on the desk)
