While most guys wished to be blue-eyed (and blonde), I wished for purple eyes.
*As described by the photo’s owner, this one’s edited.*
I think I started wanting a pair of bright purple eyes when I saw an actress on a movie (whose title I forgot) who had one. She is most probably wearing contacts but I found it really pretty and undeniably unique. Then not long ago, I saw this and decided to look it up on other sites.
Having purple eyes is allegedly a result of something called Alexandria’s Genesis. A person born with this fictional (yes, it’s created as part of Daria fan fiction) genetic mutation will have blue or gray eyes (at first) that will gradually deepen in color and will eventually be in a purple/violet shade. This doesn’t affect the person’s eyesight though.
Here are some of the other interesting traits one would get if you have Alexandria’s Genesis:
No facial or body hair growth beyond what was already there at birth
Dark brown or black hair
Shimmering white skin that resist tanning and burning
Lack of menstruation cycle but remains fertile (in women)
Highly evolved immune system (has been known to resist every disease known to man so far)
Appear 5-20 years younger (after the age of 21, the aging process slows down greatly; it stops completely between the ages of 40-50)
Long life span (ranges from 130-170 years)
Never overweight (their metabolism prevents the gaining of too much fat)
Well-developed and proportioned bodies
A no waste-producing digestive system
Found mainly in women of Euro-American descent
Women are the primary carriers of the mutation
Children born from mothers with the mutation are also carriers
Mutation remains active generation after generation
Mutation grows stronger generation after generation
Well, well, well. No wonder people wish they have A.G. Still, though some claim they have it, I believe Alexandria’s Genesis is fictional. Having purple eyes is possible (see here and here) but I doubt it’s because of A.G.
