Hi, I'm trying to prep for NaNoWriMo. In seeking visual images for my main character, I found the perfect skin tone for her (she's a star fragment who took a human form). I feel terrible with colors, so I'm not even sure if she's considered "olive" or "brown" or what. She also has a golden glow to her skin:

I know people of all color can be born from anywhere nowadays, but since I'm trying to figure out what kind of town she lives in... I remember reading that way back when, the environment and amount of sun played a part in human skin color? What kind of environment makes sense for my main character's skin color? All I can think of is the desert, but that's so stereotypical. Maybe islands or the beach?
