Eh, yeah, but that's kinda the thing though. Angrboda is not an outsider. She's a jotun, basically an indigenous people in norse mythology. So if she's black, jotuns in general should be black. Or at least, large portions of the population should be, keeping in mind jotuns come in all shaoes and sizes.Its also been explained that how someone with dark skin could plausibly exist in a setting like this, but that didn't seem to change the conversation much.
If she's an outsider, ending up there for reasons unknown. Then is she even a jotun? Or are there jotuns all over the world in this game world. How does that relate to other mythologies? She being dark skinned just poses a ton of question, and I just really hope the devs intend to answer those. It'd make the story better,more compelling. And this doesn't mean they need to spend tons of time on it. Showing it through background characters or background chatter could suffise. I just hope they ground everything.
I can't wait to see what the welsh viking has to say on this. He had a great video on Thor, and he creates a lot of very insightful videos on all things viking. I highly recommend.
