Redheads are like blondes;plenty of children have this hair color, but past puberty the vast majority of women have to get their hair dyed or bleached to keep the color they had as children.

Fun fact: there were no redheads in Ireland until the Vikings invaded. :D

I thought this might be a vampire, until your description. Then I remembered, "Gingers have no soul."

Thanks for an excellent entry, in every sense!

Great puzzle!

Kristen, they almost are vampires with their fear of the sun

True, redheads don't tan, they burst into flames. :)

Just couldn't quite get the last couple of squares. Gave up. Well designed if others could get it. Ran out of patience.

Nicely done, Kevin. Challenging solve, but lots of fun.

I didn't know red hair was a mutation. How interesting.

Great article! Now I have to edit my Fun Fact: Vikings *contributed* to the number of redheads in Ireland and Scotland. :)

Congrats Kevin!
I spent a while on this one, but finished it with line/color logic alone.
I had never heard the "... have no souls" expression before.
I like mutants also, but prefer them witout red eyes. ;)
BTW, who's your lovely model?

Hey, Kadou, you read my mind. Answer that question in the 3Q interview, Kevin.

Info from the "know your meme" web site: The phrase “gingers have no soul” comes from the South Park episode “Ginger Kids” that first aired on November 9th, 2005. At the beginning of this episode, Eric Cartman gives a class presentation on the subject of red-headed children and “Gingervitis,” a made-up disease.

That totally makes sense. It sounds like something Cartman would say.

I too thought this was a vampire until I finished the mouth. My dad is a redhead and longed for some redhead offspring. Not a one of his four children and many grandchildren carried this trait on. Nice image!

She's gorgeous, but those red eyes are scary. :)
