Have made my zerrikaniana blonde, a brunette in the comics, because the artist could, as an artist, have to do it. Troy: Fall of a City, Netflix, Achilles is played by a black actor.
Achilles was, as we know, the son of king Peleus of Thessaly and of the nereid Thetis. The series seems to put into question its image as canonical, and suggest an interference to the nubian. And this is not far-fetched, indeed.
My story is not slavic or medieval, is simply fantasy canon, and the influences are manifold, not only from slavic mythology” the previous words of Sapkowski to Wyborcza, with the interview, translated on Reddit.
