Okay, something that's been bugging me for a while, and not even bringing it up on Ian's board has given a significant fanwank for it, so I guess I'll go for the source: what was the intention behind Rotor's new "older" look, after the missing year? I mean, the bangs, cheek fuzz and eyeglasses make him look much older than the 18 he's supposed to be. The glasses are of particular irritation for me; why did he get them? There's nothing that hinted that his eyesight was bad, before, so was there some incident in the missing year that made it necessary for him to have those glasses?
Another point of contention for me is Cobar's age; no offense, but he looks like a prune compared to even Rotor or the others, and they're in their early 40's, so for Cobar to look that wilted means he must have been much older than Rotor when they met. So, what age was he meant to be?
