>> I know someone with eyes like that ... thankfully, her beloved is not among her losses, and I hope to see that her eyes are blue next I see her. <<

I hope so too. I've seen the effect myself, and it's unsettling.

>> Hmmm. Heroes and villains alike part for her .... but who will comfort her? That's a hard job... but satisfying. <<

I'm not sure who she has to lean on, or if she wants anyone.

There is a superhera in this setting whose power is lifting depression. That's mainly about getting people unstuck, though, not about removing natural emotions. I don't adhere to the modern idea that more than two weeks of intense low is clinical depression even if you've just suffered a major loss. It takes about 8 years after losing a spouse for someone's life to return to former levels of contentment.
