it is called heterochromia (also known as a heterochromia iridis or heterochromia iridium) is an ocular condition in which one iris is a different color from the other iris (complete heterochromia), or where the part of one iris is a different color from the remainder (partial heterochromia or sectoral heterochromia). It is a result of the relative excess or lack of pigment within an iris or part of an iris, which may be inherited or acquired by disease or injury. This uncommon condition usually results due to uneven melanin content. A number of causes are responsible, including genetic, such as chimerism, Horners Syndrome and Waardenburg syndrome.

Eye color is a polygenic phenotypic character and is determined by two distinct factors: the pigmentation of the eye's iris and the frequency-dependence of the scattering of light by the turbid medium in the stroma of the iris.

After I finished killing the master in Act 5, is the game over or will there be side quests?
Weegy: The game is over after you killed Baal in Act 5. Tyrael will appear and will tell you that he will destroy the corrupted worldstone and then the cinematics will appear showing you how he destroyed it. [ After that, you will notice that you can now play the game again with "Normal, and Nightmare" difficulty using the same character you created. The "Hell" difficulty will be available after you finish the "Nightmare" mode of the game. ] User: Thank you (More)
