0004625: Casteless creatures report tissue colors as amber
Creatures that lack castes but have tissue colors always report those colors as amber, no matter whether amber is a appropriate color for that tissue.
Spawn a fire imp in the arena, and look at its description.
As a workaround, adding a single caste before the tissue color definition works.
No tags attached.

This also happens to creatures with castes where the tissue colors aren't declared in the caste and the caste is never selected for inclusion for the color definitions (such as lacking [SELECT_CASTE:ALL] - see the Unicorn 0004547)
