The buzz surrounding the casting of Violet Sorrengail for the Fourth Wing series is just as intense as that for Xaden Riorson, and it’s easy to see why. Author Rebecca Yarros has struck gold with a character who is both delicate and fierce, intriguing in both her physicality and persona. With long brown hair tinged with metallic silver ends—often fashioned into a crown braid—Violet is a picture of ethereal beauty. Her pale skin, light hazel eyes with hues of blues and ambers, and petite structure have captivated the imagination of countless fans.
Violet’s character evolution adds another layer of complexity to her casting. Initially described as fragile due to her chronic illness, Violet gains muscle mass as the series progresses, thanks to intensive weights training. She also receives a radiant black relic featuring a dragon in mid-flight, stretching across her shoulders, centred by a golden dragon silhouette. This relic is a physical manifestation of her inner transformation and serves as a powerful visual cue for anyone looking to portray her.
