Orchid is Asian since she is siblings with Jago. Her look in Gold/2 was pretty much based off Janet Jackson, although she looked more like her brother Michael in that game. I kind of preferred her KI1 and KI2013 look, tbh, although I hope for the next KI she is given more Asian features.
Wow really? I think I’m missing something here. I always thought the other way around. More like, Jago is part American bc he is siblings with Orchid. I assumed either one of Orchid’s parents had a Hispanic ancestry, don’t know why, but I assumed. She could be Asian descent too.
Well, I was going off her KI1 appearance, which, while admittedly very basic, seemed to have some Asiatic features.
One common explanation that I hear for her being Black/African-American is because of her code-name being “Black Orchid”, which is kind of dumb imo.
It’s somewhat ambiguous as to what ethnicities both Jago and Orchid are, but for a while I was under the assumption that they were both Asian, although the comics and 2013 game kind of make them out to be Caucasian. It’s possible they’re mixed race. I don’t know.
