I'm the same. I have a dark red beard, as well, but my hair is light brown unless I grow it out, at which point, the red is very apparent. Other than my grandfather, there aren't any other people in my family with my hair color, and we're of Irish heritage. I had a co-worker, who apparently didn't hear me come into the break room, tell me I was "like a big red cat." Hence, El Gato Rojo became my nickname.
I actually don't tan (big surprise), but I burn, blister, and freckle. . . I have tons, so with the "soul-taking" thing, take from that what you will!
