I'm brownLet's just say thank you to Uncle Adolf...
I'm very German. And we don't tan well. At all.
I look like Glorfindel in The Lord of the Rings when the Nazgul try to cross the Ford of Bruinen into Rivendell...
"Suddenly into view below came a white horse, gleaming in the shadows, running swiftly. In the dusk, its headstall flickered and flashed, as if it were studded with gems like living stars. The rider's cloak streamed behind him, and his hood was thrown back; his golden hair flowed shimmering in the wind of his speed....it appeared that white light was shining through the form and raiment of the rider as if though through a thin veil."
"...а shining figure of white light...an Elf-lord revealed in his wrath."
Or "beautiful and terrible as the dawn. Fair as the sea and the sun and the snow upon the mountain."

Or perhaps raw chicken with the skin on it? Like milk or pearl in the moonlight?
The point is I'm super pale.
I have a natural tan and I avoid sunshine at all times, I don't want to look like a piece of leather when I turn 25.
