Please please I want the citation in the book about his hair because I dont remember it aaaaaa (Sorry for bad english ??)
Hey! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you. It was a combination of “Hmm is there anything else you can add?” and “I’ll get back to this later!” LOL
Anyway, here are some excerpts that give the readers some information about Laurent’s hair:
Captive Prince, Chapter 10:
Laurent’s body was a series of graceful lines under the shirt’s soft folds. Damen’s eyes lifted to the white column of his throat, and above that the golden hair, parting around the shell cup of an unjewelled ear. The image was damascened, as beaten metal. He was reading.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 2:
In order to begin unlacing the garment, he had to lift his fingers and brush to one side the ends of the gilt hair, soft as fox fur. When he did so, Laurent tipped his head very slightly, offering better access.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 14:
Damen looked downwards and saw the way that the white fabric shifted slightly under his thumbs. Laurent’s shirt hung on his body, a containing layer. Then Damen’s eyes travelled up along the balanced nape, to a wick of golden hair tucked behind an ear.
Prince’s Gambit, Chapter 18:
Laurent looked like any young man who has been pressed against a battlement and kissed. The slight disturbance of the hair at Laurent’s nape was wonderful. His hand had lain there.
Kings Rising, Chapter 12:
Damen lifted his hand, slid his fingers into the short, soft hair at the back of Laurent’s neck, cupping his head. They had never been this close, not with the fact of who he was open between them.
There was only the feel of it, the slide of his chest against Laurent’s back, the dip of Laurent’s head, and the sweat-damp hair at the nape of Laurent’s neck.
Kings Rising, Chapter 14:
The light through the trees dappled Laurent’s hair, which was longer now than it had been in the palace, and showing signs of minor disarray.
The Summer Palace:
He remembered - the steam of those other baths, the moment he had caught Laurent’s wrist in his hand. This close, he could see the wet tops of Laurent’s shoulders. Above that, the tips of Laurent’s hair were wet too, from steam or from the splash from the pitcher.
The passage from The Summer Palace (TSP) clearly states that Laurent’s hair is slightly above shoulder length. Since TSP occurs near the end of this series’ timeline AND Chapter 14 of King’s Rising (KR) states that Laurent’s hair grows throughout the trilogy, I can make assumptions of the length of Laurent’s hair from earlier.
I believe that at the beginning of the trilogy, Laurent’s hair is at/around chin level. In Chapter 10 of Captive Prince (CP), Laurent’s hair is described to be tucked behind his ear. Hair that is chin level (speaking from personal experience because mine is that short) is easily able to be tucked behind the ear. Any shorter than chin length is hard to brush behind the ear.
Laurent’s hair is constantly described as at the nape, aka the back of the neck. Since we know that Laurent’s hair is at chin level in CP and is shoulder length in TSP, I can conclude that his hair grows throughout Prince’s Gambit (PG) and KR.
TL;DR - Laurent’s hair begins at chin level, gradually grows throughout the trilogy, and is now at shoulder level. He has “medium” length hair.
I feel like she would be the short haired twin? I guess cause all the fire spells having long hair would be a problem? Tho I cant decide if she should have like wavy medium/short length hair or like short hair like this? I also wanna give her like blue hair dye too? She is also definitely the buff twin. I’ll draw that content later tho-
things i never talk about enough which should be considered like a minor crime: berg with his hair down and unstyled vs that time his hair got singed during work and they had to cut off as much as they could to save what was left. thankfully his hair grows super fast so he was only down in the dumps for like a month or two
so among the recent criticism of pearl recently I’ve come to a conclusion that pearl isn’t an inkling, but a cuttlefish i present my evidence
#1: Her hair
despite the hair in splatoon being presented as different hair styles pearls hair is still slightly different than that of the inklings
notice how, despite its short length, her hair is straight and then curves at the ends (kinda like a bob) its similar to the shape of your generic cuttlefish appendage. Her hair also follows the tentacle/limb rule where the number of hair tentacles + arms and legs equals the number of tentacles that species would have in real life. Which for a cuttlefish is 8
plus her color palette consists of pink and white, which are both colors a cuttlefish can be. And yeah she has spots on her hair like an inkling (unlike an octoling which have solid colors) but cuttlefish can also be spotted
#2 Her face
one of the most notable things people have noticed about her is her “unusual” face shape; large forehead, slightly different eye shape than a regular inkling (which i wouldn’t make exceptions that inklings are younger and more likely to just be similar because youth because Callie and Marie have eye shapes that, while are slightly different, are too similar to say otherwise shape). And because we haven’t seen an octolings pupils until now we can make conclusions that within the splatoon world cuttlefish, octolings, and inklings all exists having similar eyes with different variants. If we assume pearl is in fact a cuttlefish this variant would mean slightly narrower eyes since her eye shape is different despite having that connecting black outline they have.
(her eye shape could allude to that U shape the space between a cuttlefish’s eyes makes)
Another variant among the inklings, octolings, and cuttlefish being teeth. Both Marina and Pearl have different teeth than any other cephalopod we’ve seen within the splatoon canon
#3 The fact that she’s in a duo with an octoling
as cool as it is to see an octoling getting along with inklings it would still seem a little out of place to have one soul non-inkling, it would make sense for her to be in a duo with another non-inkling possibly as a sign of the inklings trying to make peace with the octarians since the turf wars.
It would also add to another difference between Marian and Pearl and the Squid Sisters, to have a duo that is entirely non-inkling “take their place” as the main musical group for the game
