So idk if anyone else has mentioned this but I noticed something when we first saw Lotor:
He has irises… All the other galra we’ve seen have had solid coloured eyes.
(Zarkon’s the only one who has purple eyes, probably because of all the quintessence ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ They’re still a solid colour)
Etc. You get the idea. They (mostly) all have solid yellow eyes. So why tf does Lotor have irises? At first I thought they were just trying to make Lotor look more like his original version, but why? All the other galra had irises in the original as well, but not in vld. So why give just Lotor irises???
Then we found out about the four female galra: (Sorry for the shit quality, it’s the only pic I could find)
So, what do we know about them? They’re all only half galra. And they all seem to have irises. My theory is that Lotor is probably only half galra too, which explains his irises and why he’s more open to having half galra soldiers.
I’m not sure if any of this matters much, but I’m also willing to bet that Haggar is Lotor’s mother. They have similar face shapes, and it would explain his ear shape and hair colour.
Tl;dr: Lotor’s only half galra and Haggar’s probably his mother.
