Beauty can be defined both internally and externally. External beauty is comprised only of socially acceptable standards of attractiveness, sexual or otherwise. For the most part, it’s unclear whether beauty is a curse or a blessing.

In addition, for the most part, characters’ outward appearances tend to reflect their inner character.
