Default redheads and the nature of the soulless

Does anyone find it strange that despite there being a huge percentage of redheads in the wheel of time redheaded darkfriends are so rare. Also red haired soulless are unheard of or at least not ever mentioned.

What makes you think redhead Darkfriends are rare? Sheriam comes to mind. Maybe Couladin. I don't think we know enough Darkfriend names to say redheads are rare among them, and I don't think redheads are particularly common outside the Aiel, either.

So far, we've mostly seen the soulless operate in places where there are few redheads. Sending a redhead (who then stands out because of hair colour) to do a job where it is essential not to stand out would be tactically unsound.

Well Melindhra was a redheaded DF.
When it comes to gray men I'd refer to Gonzo's comment.

Don't forget Lord Luc. Seems there are a lot of darkfriend redheads.

I still think that Luc isn't really a darkfriend, just controlled in part by Islam.
