The only detailed description of Dara Happans that I know of is from "Dara Happa Stirs" and certainly does not describe them as looking like Scandanavians, sun-starved or otherwise:
"Dara Happans are typically tall, of regal bearing, stocky of build, and with a natural elegance that is a direct result of their relationship with the ruler of the universe. Their skin is burnished to an almost golden hue and their hair – thick and luxuriant – is either blond or light brown. Eyes are brown or amber, and the facial bone structure is strong and imposing. The Dara Happan nose is a distinctive feature; well defined – almost chiselled – and, in certain aristocratic families, hooked with impressive, flaring nostrils. The eyes are typically heavily lidded and slant downwards at the temple. Lips are thin crescents, and the jaw-line strong and purposeful."
