Green-eyed synths Mia, Niska and Max are all attempting to rehabilitate the image of synthetics after Day Zero meant they were largely shunned and denied basic rights.
Synths’ eyes do change colour as they are built with blue eyes which turn the famous green when attached to their primary user.
It’s unknown whether the eyes of the unconscious manufactured post-Day Zero synths will turn green if any are awakened.
