Historically, this is probably inspired by canines, felines, reptiles and birds of prey, which can have Amber, yellow, or Orange irises, and are associated with being conniving, clever, and wise. Also reptiles and toads are sometimes [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent associated with villainy]], and can have yellow eyes. Ironically in these animals what you're usually seeing are larger irises which were probably mistaken for a yellow sclera.
