Do you know what it's called when someone has eyes of two different colors, like Kat and the others who are Graced? Heterochromia - in this case, heterochromia of the eye. From Wikipedia:
"Heterochromia of the eye (heterochromia iridis or heterochromia iridum) is of two kinds. In complete heterochromia, one iris is a different color from the other. In partial heterochromia or sectoral heterochromia, part of one iris is a different color from its remainder."
You may be familiar with some well-known people with heterochromia, such as Jane Seymour and Kiefer Sutherland. Here's a fun fact: Anastasius I had one black eye and one blue eye, so his nickname was Dicorus, which means "two-pupiled."
Do you know anyone with two differently-colored eyes? What color are your eyes?
