Here's a little bit about red/violet eyes:

"Red irides are a result of albinism. Albinism is where there is no melanin in the melanocytes at all. Therefore all of the blood vessels (in the iris and retina) are seen and a redder appearance is given. In practice only very few albinos have red eyes, the blue reflections of the collagen show up stronger and so most have blue/grey or even brown. The mixing of red and blue reflections can also give rise to violet eyes."

Quoted from this site:
pretty reliable information I'd say...

Here's a picture how the eyecoloring works:

So, violet eye color does exist, for sure, but Alexandria's Genesis sounds more like a myth to me.

Its known as the royal color because elite romans would wear purple boarderd togas. the purple dye would come from the middle east or medeteranian or africa, i dont remember where. Dye makers would crush some rare snails to make the dye, this took a lot of work and it also took alot of work to get the dye to rome. supply and demand made purple the royal color.... not Alexandria Genisis

Sorry hon, but I can't believe you. It's word for word of this RPG fan fiction here

This is right. I have found no other detailed description or facts that state a theory even exists by trained scientists on "alexandria's genesis". It was a story written a long time ago and nobody knew if it was true. I don't know who exists on the world who has purple eyes, but "alexandria's genesis" is RPG fiction.

for anyone who wanted to see a purple eyed person, these are my own eyes (: just trying to learn more about them and this popped up on top of google. thanks for the info.

Alexandria's Genesis seems real enough looking at the web, but I'm not totally convinced that all the symptoms or characteristics are real. I can believe the purple eyes, the slim body, the pale skin, the dark hair, and the perfect eyesight but the rest of it could just be made up wishfully. National speak like a pirate day was made real online so why not Alexandria's Genesis?
Most of what couldn't be natural hasn't been proven to actually occur.

It would be cool if it were real though.

Hi, I find this condition interesting. I have a 2 month old duaghter who was born with blue eyes, but now are starting to turn a blue/purple. Her mother and I are both cuacasion and of European descent. Is it a myth? not at all sure, but the proof stares at me and smiles. I have taken a picture of her with her eyes open but the flash from the camara white washes the colors in the picture a bit. For instance her pink sleeper looks for white, but her eyes still exhibit some of the purple tint. With out the flash white washing the colors the purple would be more vibrant and visible. She however at birth does have "peach fuzz" all over her body, but she was born with an abnormaly large amount of hair on her head. she does have fair skin and is very beautiful. We recently took her to get her 2 month wellness visit and the Doctor was able to see the purple pigmentation as well. Not sure if the entire story is true about Alexandria's Genisis, but the eye color so far is in existance. As a side note, I have very bright blue eyes, my son has very bright blue almost silver blue eyes, my wife has dark brown eyes. Research and genetics tell me that blue eyes are a recessive gene and that brown is more dominant. That explains why approximately 80% of the worlds populous has brown eyes. I think that perhaps the Alexandria Genisis mutation gene might be present in myself and my wife and has manifested in my daughter causing her to have the blue/purple eyes that appear to be more purple every day, and my son with his blue/silver eyes is very stunning as well. Just wanted to share that with the world. Remember, there are things of this world that are unexplained. Science and Religion may never figure these things out as both tend to be closed minded.

i am currently trying to piece out how alexandria's genesis can happen in a person. in several instances in the bible, it is said that people lived to be 200 year old. sara herself was said to have a child at age 150. the years might be off since the calandar was different, but i don't think that they were that far off. it actually might be possible. if anyone knows anything more, please post! i'll keep you posted on what i find!

i dont know about purple eyes in humans, but they do exist in other species. horses, for one can very rarely have purple eyes. (VERY rarely)

I'm not an Optometrist or an Opthamologist... but I don't know of any true "violet eyed" individuals. A previous poster alluded to the fact of differing angles and lens shapes giving different refractions that can make an eye look purple from an angle. For once, Wikipedia has a decent article about it ....and I thought I would post it here. It is interesting to note that eye color can be changed due to disease, injury and even medications....

Hey, Im new here and i actually joined because of this post
anyway, I think Alexandria's Genesis is really fascinating and I totally believe it. For one thing, I have very pale skin which no matter what I do never tans, and I have an amazingly fast metabolism, I'm actually trying to gain weight right now and it's pretty hard. I have perfect vision, and not too much body hair, and I don't use the bathroom very often. Though I don't have purple eyes, I have a weird form of hazel. Instead of being light brown with some green (traditional hazel colors), they're brown right around the pupil, fade into green, fade into a light blue, and are dark blue violet-ish on the edges. Everyone else in my family needs glasses and the only other one who doesnt have brown eyes in my family is my grandma. Though I was a sperm donor baby, so half of my family history is a complete mystery to me.
Anway thanks for posting this, this is really interesting

I don't know if anyone's interested in looking into this, but it seems as though there was a strange group of people living in/around tennessee that the cherokee indians found (according to benjamin smith barton's book 'New Views of the Origin of the Tribes and Nations of America', 1797) living in houses in a small community. The cherokee said they were strange people with very odd eyes, slightly large and sensitive to light, allowing them to only see at night.

This has nothing to do with that specifically, but it's also interesting to note that Woodrow Derenberger, a central figure in the events around the mothman sightings in Point Pleasant, WV in the 1960's, spoke to one 'indrid cold', who claimed to be from a planet called 'lanulos' in the ganymede galaxy. What makes this somewhat relevant is that the people of 'lanulos' had an average lifespan of 125-175 years, and it was a mostly perfect world.

I know both of those things are seemingly unrelated, but they have interesting similarities at least.

I have Alexandria's Genesis. But a lot of what people say about it isn't true. Yes I'm *crazy* pale. And I've only been sunburned once (I never wear sunscreen). I have dark hair (black), and, of course, purple (not violet) eyes. Also I have a *very* fast metabolism. It's hard for me to put on weight. I. Hate. It. (I'm a 6'1'' boy who weighs 125):

I poop, just like everyone else.

I look young for my age (then again most twinks do

I've been told my body makes a lot of white blood cells (like abnormally so), but I've still been sick before. And I'm pretty sure I can get diseases (wrap it up people
, but I'd rather not test that...


Here's what I think. All the things I've mentioned can happen to people w/o Alexandria's Genesis. Some people have fast metabolisms, or an above average white blood cell count. A lot of people are pale. Some people don't really burn or tan (it's a curse I'm afraid). Some people look young for their age (again, every twink in the gay community). And lots of people have black hair.


I think AG only effects peoples pigmentation and metabolism and white blood cell count somehow (pale, purple, and skinny
). All of which are largely based on Hormonal signals. So maybe I have somethin wierd goin on in my pituitary which happens to cause these things to happen.


I feel like someone in ye olden times got Alexandria's Genesis and realized that being pale and having eyes the color of royalty could work out in their favor if they played their cards right (being pale was a sign of wealth). So they decided to spice it up a little by saying they don't create waste, or menstruate, or grow old (all of which make them sound *very* appealing).

Then maybe their metabolism made them live a lot longer then most (who died at 30), so the common folk just kept exaggerating until dieing at 90 became dieing at 130. And then the person became something of a folk legend and other things were thrown in to spice up the story (like appearing in a beam of light).


That's my theory anyway.

Also the back story could have been added by the ff writer.

A lot of the symptoms of AG are pretty normal when you think about it. Some people have really weird eyes! There's; black, brown, grey, green, blue, red (albino's), yellow (*extremely* rare), violet, and hazel (orange in the right light). So, why is purple so hard to believe?


OH! And one more thing. I believe in aliens. But the back story just sounds very "folklore" to me. Personal opinion

Having white pale skin has been an obsession among royals.They also claim to have blue blood and married within the family tree.

There are connections made linking royalty back to Rome Greece, Israel and Egypt.
There was talk about preserving a genetic something . This was why they married among each other. They preserved and advanced this gene. Only the bloodlines got dirty.

This story would explain it all.

As much as I'd love to believe this i doubt it's completely true it's probably just one of those myths thats has been edited with a load of rubbish infact i wouldnt be surprised if in years to come alexandria's were the new vampires, the beautiful purple eyed creatures who kill people or something
infact if you've ever read any books involving faeries they could be their non winged cousins

I'm tempted to believe that anything listed on that link is fictitious as it is listed in 'fanfic' on the server. Fanfic is typically short for 'fan fiction' and is a branch of writing where people take a popular book/tv show/etc and write their own stories within the world of that existing work.
