So, I know there has been a lot of debate about how "light" someone's eyes need to be in order to actually be considered a lighteyes, but I haven't seen anyone bring up heterochromia? Eyes with more than one color? I know there's the Veden king's bastard son, but to my understanding, that was a genetic thing, whereas heterochromia, to my knowledge, involves a mild injury during birth that results in either whole or part of the eye's pigment changing (not really sure how it works, that's just what research has told me). Are there any ideas about where this would put someone in the Alethi system?

Being light in one and dark in the other is genetic on Roshar, I'm pretty sure.

No weirder than multicolored hair.

The last question here has plenty on heterochromia and its effect on your ranking. Apparently it's common for the children of lighteyes and darkeyes to have it.

Actually heterochromia (technically heterochromia iridum) is sometimes genetic in our world as well, it isn't exclusively caused by injury.  Though now I do wonder if if secotral and central heterochromia exist on Roshar as well and what significance they hold...

Hm, probably if one eye is heterochromatic, this could be understood as holy and/or blasphemous, in reference to the eye of the almighty.
