I think I've discovered a real-life version of Tuon, in the form of Lizz Wright, a jazz/gospel singer:

She's from GA, so she even has the drawl.

Yeah, she's short, skinny, and black. Representing racial diversity in WoT all by herself..... *lol*

Don't forget Semhirage. And Julian Sandar? Or is he more of an Arabic/Indian brown? I'm sure there are others. Seems like most folk in Randland are brown, pale (I still don't understand how the Aiel coujld spend centuries in a desert and still have an Irish complexion) or Andoran.

No, the Aiel don't have an Irish complexion - the Irish are pale and incapable of tanning.

The Aiel are just white people who tan well. They're always described as being quite tanned, but very pale where their skin doesn't see the sun. A Germanic sort of complexion, I guess.

Somehow I never remembered Semirhage as being described as black until the whole Anath business went down... And yeah, I think I thought of Juilin as more of an India complexion.

And I guess there's a little Asian in some of the countries, I guess.

Anyway...
