Wasn't there a theory a while back that had pupils as a connection to stupidworld? Or maybe the Wanda - Jillian - Jack love triangle has something to do with it? (But then why not Ansom as well?) Or maybe FAQ has something to do with it (but then why not Marie as well?) Or maybe it's something about free will. (But then why not Jojo as well? Actually this one seems on to something. The others simply aren't important enough story-wise to buck the existing Color Coded for Your Convenience policy.)
There's been a fair bit of speculation on this topic... going many which ways. I'll limit this response to mentioning several weird observations that have come up from this talk:
1. Most Erfworlders lack pupils and
Pupils: Parson (sometimes)
Sclera: Parson, Jillian, Wanda, Jack, and Manpower the Temporary (Sometimes... I think each of these characters has been drawn without sclera, with the possible exception of Parson, at least once).
2. Parson seems to be drawn without pupils more often now than before.
My favorite theory from this is that sclera are a sign of a player character involvement... though this theory only holds any water at all if you assume that Manpower was just a placeholder for Parson.
