Please keep coming back to and updating it. The Hemospectrum is the spectrum of blood colors possessed by trolls, which forms the basis of their caste system, with social and biological implications. The blood of a lusus has the same color of its associated troll, implying that it is a large factor in the selection of a lusus. The cherubs possess different blood colors as well. The caste system on Alternia is based on the color of an individual’s blood. The hierarchy follows a rainbow, with red being the lowest and fuchsia being the highest. There are several terms covering chunks of the hemospectrum.
Lowbloods” is used to refer to the lower half of the spectrum, and “highbloods” is used to refer to the upper half of the spectrum. Midbloods” is used, rarely, to refer to olive to cerulean bloods, but the castes within it are usually referred to as lowbloods or highbloods depending on their position in the spectrum. Higher blood castes seem to have more lavish hives: both Equius’ and Vriska’s hives resemble castles as opposed to Aradia’s humble hive. Both Eridan and Feferi wear jewelry as well. Karkat masks his blood color in anonymity by associating to a dark grey color due to his candy red blood, a mutation that places him and his ancestor outside the hemospectrum. Initially some of the trolls believed human blood works on a similar system, although only Equius, Eridan, and a sobered Gamzee seem to care much about the hemospectrum.
