Denver model Jasmine Colgan inspired this gaming character in “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.”

In a new video game, there's a character modeled after a Denver model. Jasmine Colgan is also an activist, who shares her journey with vitiligo. The auto-immune condition lightens her skin. She has described herself as "spotted." In "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II," there's no mistaking it: the character Nova is the incandescent Colgan. In June, we talked about how a diagnosis became a gift for Colgan.
