What the Hell with the changes to Keani's appearance with the Halloween update?!? Why is she suddenly a fair-skinned redhead instead of the native Pacific islander she started out as? A costume change is one thing, but race and nationality changes are something else entirely! Not a good choice, King!

I thought she looked like a Native Pacific Islander who tried to lighten her hair and got that rusty red color that lives underneath for most brunettes.

She is wearing her Bubble Witch Halloween costume. It comes from another King game that is pretty popular, so I guess they assumed we would all recognize the costume. (I didn’t.)

IMO the real question is, why does she look like a Pacific Islander in the first place when this Island is supposed to be in the Caribbean? (Tortuga has been mentioned in storyline dialogs, and that is a real place.)

I thought Keani went on vacation and they brought in Bubble Witch to fill in? :lol: :lol:

I would prefer her to look like the Pacific Islander myself too :D

Maybe as a reminder where from Halloween tradition was originated?

Thanks Snooby, truth is I do not know much about it, as we do not have Halloween tradition here, I only saw it in movies, so I Googled it when we had first Halloween event :oops: Interesting story behind it

Maybe the red hair is part of her costume!

Excellent insights all around, everyone! I realized after I posted that it probably was a Bubble Witch Saga homage... And the point about Tortuga is an excellent one, too. I never saw that mentioned in game , but having been born and raised in St.Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Tortuga is definitely more Caribbean than, say, Hawaii or Fiji, as Keani looks to be from.

Thank you for being so polite in your replies. I appreciate that! ☺️ Happy Halloween, all!

This is a King cross promotion- recycled from last year- our typical Keani returns after the season is over!
