In which Tama unintentionally strikes a nerve. On a nerdy note, Tamakepe DO have pupils, but due to a bio-luminescence in their eyes you can’t typically see them unless they’re in extreme shadow. I toyed a bit with giving them reflective, mirror eyes, a trait unique to the Spookfish on our planet, as it would allow them to have no pupils, but still have cones, which would make it possible for Pakku to have red/green colorblindness. BUUUUUT that would also require genetic divergence that was a little too extreme. SO you get the far less sciency bio-luminescence excuse. Still, you should look up Spookfish. They’re pretty awesome.
