(For example, she might see a light pink aura around a small child who's keeping it a secret that they broke a vase, but she might see a deep crimson aura around someone who committed murder)
If you want to leave secrets for character reveals later, you can just let me know a color based on this:-Light grey: mundane secrets, pretty much everyone will have this if they don't have anything else. "Yes, I did take out the trash", "No, I didn't go out last weekend", that kinda thing.-Dark grey to black: this happens when the mundane secrets pile up until they're lying about pretty much everything they do and don't do. Basically, if your character's living a double life, having an affair, consistently lying about some basic part of their life, ect., it'll look like this.-Varying shades of pink/red: Destructive secrets. The more severe, the darker the shade. These are any secrets they keep that could be potentially harmful to someone or something. That can mean it's either something as little as them not telling anyone that they broke a glass container somewhere or something as big as them keeping their life as a member of a dangerous gang a secret, thus endangering everyone they care about in the event that that life of theirs doesn't go so well.-Varying shades of purple: Miscellaneous, basically. Anyone keeping a secret that isn't directly dangerous to anyone or anything will likely have this. This can range from 'I have a secret pet in my no-pets apartment' to 'I have huge feathery wings sticking out of my back and I can't do anything about it'. Razzy would have this if someone with her abilities looked at her.-Add a color if you don't think any of these fit.Keep in mind that Razzy only sees an aura if the secret is something she doesn't already know, so the character's keeping their abilities or statuses as non-human a secret from other people won't make it appear unless they also aren't telling Razzy.The color of the aura is also linked to how the character themselves views the secret(s), and not necessarily how things actually are. If they think it's harmless and it's actually dangerous, Razzy won't see red. That kinda thing.
