That is true for almost any of Gregs heroes. Hrestol, Arkat, Harmast, Jonat, Argrath... We don´t get much to know about they look, except a broad desrcription. BUT
If you look at real world mythology you will find out that a hero is a) a typical idealised version of our cultures clichee look, OR b) looks like he is a stranger, but still is OUR hero.

I have Hrestols Saga, The Tale of Seralos Deguys (sp?), All Men Should Know This, Jonats Saga or King of Sartar handy, but i think all of these texts mention hair and skin colour, but almost nothing more.
