    • Cinder is Lunar, but in Marissa Meyer's blog it shows that she her ethnicity is mixed (asian/Caucasian)

        Loading editor
    • No, she is not, she is Lunar. She appears a mix of Caucasian with a hint of Asian. 

        Loading editor
    • She is both Lunar and Asian. She's not white.

    • If the author says she's asian, she's asian. Stop whitewashing her.

      Author wrote the book, and gave life to Cinder, and she is described through the book, (as well as on her personal website) , as having Asian/Caucasian appearance.. She originates from Luna yes, but her appearance is Asian/Caucasian.. I live in australia, but my heritage is Irish/Scottish. and I appear caucasian. Not like the indigenous aussies... think on that before you jump on people about their thoughts. I think people are getting "full out rage" about you whitewashing a character. It is amazing that this series has given life to a lot of cutural appearances (Snow White ... isnt White... Love it) 


      PS: noone was judging anything, they were answering the original poster. Only thing to judge here is how one thinks that writing in all capitals is going to change the reality of the fact that Linh Cinder is of Chinese origin. (the giveaway... the name, the surname is set before the first name... :) Google: a guide to Lunar Chronicles Character Traits. it will answer it all there

    • oh, and PPS: Lunars originated from Earth :)

    • Has anyone ever considered that perhaps her biological father was Asian?

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, you never know, we never know much about cinder's biological father, if the lunar's did originate on earth than it could be a lunar who has Asian descendants.

    • Cinder is not Asian, she was raised in Asia, but is Lunar, she has olive skin, and looks like Channary, Who was pretty tan.

    • Cinder as Marissa Meyer has stated in her website is a Lunar of mixed ethnicity she is Asian/Caucasian and she wrote possibly in the description. Here is the link to the guide to lunar chronicles character traits. http://www.marissameyer.com/blogtype/a-guide-to-lunar-chronicles-character-traits/ Hope that answers people's questions about her ethnicity.

      FYI you need to read the books not all Lunars are white. What about Princess Winter? She is Lunar and she is not white. Lunars when they colonised the moon they came from all sorts of different backgrounds and after 60 years of being just a colony they were recognised as their own country. If you want more information on Lunar history you should read more on Marissa's website. In fact I recommend you do because your ignorance is showing.

    • Cinder is Asian without a doubt for me. Ancestry/looking wise at some extent and most important, culturally - when you live all your life in one place, at least most you can remember, that's your culture too. Although she feels misplaced everywhere she goes, in one of the series chapters is pointed out that, how she misses there (not the abuse of the home, but the familiarity of the city and its background). And now ethnically descent speaking, I think the may point of this topic, like many already pointed out, Lunar is a place of multiethnic descent, from little blue-eyed blondes like Cress to brown dark skinned curly haired girls like Winter and how they look tells a lot of their heritage mix. Within that being said, when we say Cinder is Asian, means she is distinguishly of that descent (that meaning a wide range of how an Asian person can look like), and as well of European descent (same). Of course she's Lunar, that's not undermining that. And to think of it  Marissa Meyer's made this canon on her series guide online and answered about it over and over on interviews (check this one, last question: http://izabella.tumblr.com/post/55065922902/we-skyped-with-marissa-meyer-and-she-answered-our). And if it turns out that there's going to be a movie or tv show adaptation, I really hope they stick for that description because it would be a great opportunity of having Asian representation on the screen, on such a powerful role. My fancasts (within the age proximity necessary) it would be Devyn Nekoda or Lana Condor.

    • she could be be part south east asian, which would explain tan skin, but she's definitely not white

    • Cinder is said to have olive/tanned skin. She is also said to be a Caucasian/Asian mix. But, what kind of Asian? What if she’s also part Indian or middle eastern? I’m not saying she has to be, that’s just what I thought while reading the books.

      Reading the series, that was what also occured to me! It seemed fairly plausible too, because, throughout the series, Cinder feeling out of place was heavily emphasized, regardless of the people she was around.
