One-Eyed Bear 1

I wonder… can Michelle control the glowing eyes with the medallion, but just doesn’t care (or notice) because she’s with that group, or do her eyes always glow in the dark?


Or maybe it’s just a tapetum lucidum. Cats have them (as do many other animals). The short explanation is that it’s a reflective membrane at the back of the eye, giving the receptors a second chance to detect light. So it might not be that her eyes are literally glowing; maybe we’re just seeing light reflected off that membrane.

(Yes, this is why the eyes of dogs, cats, deer, etc. all seem to glow when you shine a light on them.)
