Nope best if the Beib had his head taken off by a cannon ball or maybe as a guest of the inquisition and Clyntahn at the end.

Why do people keep suggesting actresses 10+ years older than Sharleyan is, at least at the start of the series, to play her?

Because it's easier to act younger than you are than older? And then to age into a role.

Too young looking for Nynian.

For some reason I think that the story describes Charisians as Pacific islanders. The image I have is for Cayleb to be an Maylay Eurasian. Charis and Emerald are Eurasian/full Maylay. Chisholmians are darker complected with African and semitic features. Siddermarkians are American Anglo. Corisandians are Celtic with fairer features but still not really blonde or red headed. All the nations will have a smattering of human phenotypes but in general their characteristics corespondent to the above.

I also envision all their accents mixed and matched from all over the English speaking world. Siddermark is Asian indian. Charis is American south. Emerald is American deep south. Corisande is some vulgar British accent for the aristocracy while commoners use something more like the Cambridge accent. Temple Lands are strong Aussie. Harchong have a heavy Slavic accent. South Harchong are Boston Bahmin to their toes. Delthak is Brooklyn and Howard is various eastcoast accents.

SNIP

I like it. Any chance you could point to a description of these? Anglo-American would in clude Western European? Eurasian would cover slavic, midddle east and the northern himalayas? Malay is epicanthic fold, brown-yellow skin, china/japan/vietnamese?

So then, Lynda Carter, one of the earliest Wonder Women for Nynian.

But then you'd still have to see his face. Floating face down is more artistically pleasing.
