Over the years, Gola’s blindness has largely been alluded but rarely directly stated, it was something I never made a big deal out of because I wasn’t 100% on board with the idea myself. Even so I’ve always depicted her with dark glasses and light blue irises and no pupils (up until the events of the last story, of course). But yes, she has effectively been blind most of her life and this is how it happened. As for how she can apparently see anyway… that will be discussed shortly although a major clue was dropped near the end of Redux. Poor Gola – horrible things are always happening to her!
