Blood redirects here. For the aspect, see Blood (Aspect).

The Hemospectrum is the spectrum of blood colors possessed by trolls, which forms the basis of their caste system, with social and biological implications.

Social Aspects

The caste system on Repiton is based on the color of an individual's blood.

It is possible that the blood-color caste system may correspond with medieval class systems on Earth.

Based on this supposition, purple blood would be high royalty, blue would be nobility of sorts, green would probably be lesser nobility, and red would be peasantry. The intermediary colors are harder to discern but may correspond to other roles in feudal society or may fall under the previously listed four groups.

Hemotyping

Hemotyping is a tradition in troll society where a person uses their blood color for writing and as the color of their symbol. All of the trolls shown in Vast Error practice hemotyping.

Biological Aspects

Blood color seems to have several biological consequences in addition to the social consequences of the caste system. Troll tears, sweat, gums, and tongues are apparently the same color as their blood, though more diluted in color.other features include the survival abilites most lowbloods have. the psyops possessed by purple bloods. and the fact that Trolls within the violetblood and fuchsiablood castes also have aquatic physiological differences compared to the rest of their species (e.g. facial fins and gills).
