No idea why but the main character gets random red hair during the Samantha section. It happens when you go the blue text route for her and give her the drink.
It happens at this dialogue too in the Betan Church: "I need the help of a holy man. I've found a woman" Ralph has red hair in the avatar pic.
Despite Continue Searching appearing as an option, after 6 barrels of wine from the ship wreck you can't use this option to find more. Game said I had 8 too.
