Funny thing about the screenshot, Saga's hair went from blonde to black, just like certain someone. 

 

It seems that grow-up Saga has black skin and black hair. She has stars-moon shirt.

I am not sure if I am the only one, but I certainly don't see that change in colour on Saga's hair and skin tone. I mean, I may not have the best screen in the world, but that screenshot just looks like someone in shadow. If you look at the reflections in the small lock of hair near hear ear, it does look blonde. And her skin looks no darker than the sleeve of her shirt (which is probably pink).

 

Again, maybe it's just me, but that person definitely looks like a grown-up Saga to me.

You are not the only one. She also looks to me just like someone in the shadow. Lightening up the picture in Photoshop shows a rather fair skin and her hair has a blue/green shade. For whatever reason, she reminds me of the White.

Black hair...April was a blonde as child but later she had black hair. Saga was blonde as child but now she seems to have black hair. Another connection between April and Saga.

I could be totally colour blind :P. But Saga's hair looks more grey or white then black. But again I could be wrong!

You guys are sure coming up with a lot based on one screenshot with dubious lighting. ;)

I do not see how her hair qualifies as being "black".

As annoying (in my opinion) as it was it does fit this particular situation xD

I think it's pretty obvious now her hair is turning green like Etta's. In the Christmas card she had that green streak.

Natural green hair? Now where did I see THAT before...

I'm not sure it's Saga at all. Never was.

Actually we solved that. The dress is black and blue, but it's a bad quality picture with the contrast and balance suffering. The reason some see it as gold and white is that their brains are over-interpreting the picture (scientists have measured a statistically significant average increased activity in the visual processing centers of people who see white and golden).


April Ryan is my friend,
Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

I'm positive it's Saga for several reasons. 

 

I'm not going to comment on her color palette until I see her in proper lighting, though. :P (Though I do feel That Damn Dress is certainly applicable here.)

I'm pretty sure it's Saga as well, and I'm also still strongly a believer in Saga being young April. In fact, I suspect that this Interlude is taking place on "that CRAZY day" that April mentions in her diary in TLJ.

I don't think so. April's hair looked pretty dark in dark places, but in the light it was dark red in TLG and more brown-ish in Dreamfall.

...So you think Magnus is abusing Saga, that April changed her name moving to Newport and didn't recognise the house she grew up in when Lady Alvane opened a portal to it for her?

Here, I optimized that picture further. Hair color is now clearly discernible!

No - I think that at the end of Interlude 2, four-year-old Saga shifted to Stark, where she wound up in an orphanage, was adopted by the Ryan family, and renamed April. Time passes, adoptive dad is a jerk, and at some point in later childhood, on the "crazy day" at the lake, Interlude 3 happens, and she shifts back to the HoAW, finds it abandoned, and winds up back in Stark.

That's my working theory.

Don't want to poke too many happy holes in it, but by the beginning of Book 3, Saga is seven already. That's fairly old to just forget about six years alone with her father...
