Freckles refer to the numerous dots on the face that resemble small eggs, and also are a moe point in ACG subculture. They are common in fair-skinned people.
The occurrence of freckles is multifaceted. In addition, it is also related to the living environment and genetic factors.
People with red hair are more likely to have freckles because of genetic reasons (the same is true in real life). Both Annie from Little Orphan Annie and Pippi from Pippi Longstocking are redheads and have freckles at the same time.
Sometimes the freckles in ACG works appear as passers-by and harlequins, but there are also a considerable number of heroes.
If there are too many freckles or too thick, they will generally affect the appearance. If the number of freckles is small, or lighter, and the distribution is properly matched, sometimes it will add a certain sense of beauty.
Most freckled people have the characteristics of being humble, coming from outside the city, or informal, full of vitality and so on.
