* StrongFamilyResemblance: His facial features bear a resemblance to Varth, Haynee and Xargos. Only natural, since Varth and Haynee were his parents, while Xargos was his maternal grandfather. The family resemblance between Thorgal and his grandfather isn't as clear as it is with his parents, on account of Xargos being quite aged, with a long beard, when we see him. However, in the flashback sequence showing the Star People in space, we see a younger and cleanshaven Xargos, back when he commanded the expedition to Earth. He basically looks like a middle-aged Thorgal with short hair.
