I can't help with the stats but a couple of descriptions of Kallyr are
given in Wyrms Footprints and the Rough Guide to Boldhome. King Richard's
character was fleshed out for the Sog City and Rise of Ralios freeforms
so the organisers of those will have access to a nice description of
King Richard.

The Lunar would still consider crimson and pink to be variations
of red. However the Lunars do acknowlege the Eight Colours (No,
Octarion is _not_ one of them) from Pelorian (and Yelmic) Mythology
although only four of them (Yellow, White, Red and Blue) are actually
been listed.

I have no idea what the Malkioni or the Kralori acknowlege as a
primary colour. The Logical Malkioni may take their colors from
the rainbow but this does not mean that they see seven colors
(Indigo is not a primary colour but an evil fudge invented by
Isaac Newton to fulfill his numerological fantasies).

Michael Cule:

Which was also decided upon when I looked at Vormain with some others on
this list. However I have been informed that the Oceans Book has taken
a different tangent with respect to Vormain in general and so all bets
are off.

Kilts are not feminine in Orlanthi eyes.
