In case you thought this couldn’t get any worse, you’re quite wrong. Why? Because Sadam is making Zelgadis black. As in African-American black. No, he’s still a “rockman”, as Satan puts it, but in his original human form, he’s black. The reason? To make it more ethnically diverse. Though never mind he uses voodoo and talks in ebonics.
Oddly enough, compared to most of the other character changes, Amelia’s are very little. She’s only 18, and a high priestess, and not a princess, but she still has that whole warrior of justice bit. I guess one can take what little graces that are given.
