Here's what Carmen Carnero had to say about designing the Harrower:

“Once I received the basic concepts the team was working with, I had in my head the idea that Harrower had to be albino because free animals that are albino are rare to see in nature. I added some vegetation and organic designs to the suit which I decided to make white to represent the 'absence of color' so visually there was a strong contrast with all the characters and the intricacies of the story."
