Het influence or homo?

I picked up this female from Steve Roylance in early 2014, as a Miami het Cinder, Hypo.
As she grew, her coloring became more grey, and now she looks like this.
I don't know if there's any other genes involved.

What are your thoughts?
Just hey influence, or possibly a Cinder Miami?

It's like an extreme version of Carol's Zombie heads! Cinders color up, rather than down so it's not homozygous cinder. And many known hets don't do this so I doubt it's that.

I wonder if it's homozygous for whatever causes the Zombie heads.

Could be.
I'll have to ask Steve if there's any of Carol's lines in there.

Almost reminds me of a darker version my first Miami phase female.
She was the dam to my male, Brokk, Miami Tessera, that is so light.
I think she's why some of them turn out so light.
I had no idea on her background, or age.
I lost her unexpectedly within a year after she produced that clutch.
I wish I knew what she looked like as a hatchling.
Here's a couple pics of her.

I saw a WC post not too long ago, I cannot remember who or where it was, that had coloring similar to hers, so it made me wonder if she was a WC.

I sent a message to Carol, this was her reply.

"Not a Cinder, but looks like the Zombie look that I see from that line. Some just fade out like that. I have one from another line that is grey with just a faint red outline on the inside of her saddles."
