In the now decanonized Robotech novels by Jack McKinney, it was surmised that the Regis used DNA from Marlene Rush (recovered from the wreckage of the Mars Attack Group) and that was the basis for Ariel's human form. That is why Scott originally viewed her as Marlene. In book 18, "The End of the Ciricle", after she is brought in for questioning the original Marlene Rush's parents (despite the fact her hair is red, and her blood is green) are positive that Ariel/Marlene is in fact their daughter. The incident causes a rift between Scott and the Rushs.

Famous quotes containing the words continuity and/or secondary:
“Every generation rewrites the past. In easy times history is more or less of an ornamental art, but in times of danger we are driven to the written record by a pressing need to find answers to the riddles of today.... In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under mens reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present and get us past that idiot delusion of the exceptional Now that blocks good thinking.”
—John Dos Passos (18961970)
“A man may be defeated by his own secondary successes.”
—Woodrow Wilson (18561924)
