All the characters are based on their traditional appearances. Even modern Brother England now wears his old-fashioned field argent with cross gules, not the Queen's Jack, having changed to his more traditional look about 10 years ago.
Also, to paraphrase Russell Peters, Norwegians, Swedes, and Finns couldn't possibly live in the same area as the indigenous Sami without eventually having kids with them.... =)
(As for Brother/Sister Canada and Brother/Sister America, well, they never were particularly traditional to begin with. *cough* Now that I think about it, I'm kind of curious what Humon's take on Brother/Sister Metis or Brother/Sister Huron would be like! Brothers Canada and America could do with a reminder now and then, too -- of course, Brother Canada would just say "sorry", since we already have a few times!)
