Or the Pinkertons.

Yes, the Anti-Pinkerton Act wasn't until 1893. In 1889 the USA was still outsourcing a lot of investigation, security, and intelligence work to private enterprise.

And depending on your history, they might not stop doing so. How dystopian a world do you want to have?

I don't mind some darkness in a game, but I don't want a lot. I am planning on having some of the NPC's be agents of other powers if none of the PC's are.

If you are "white" very likely yes, at least for some areas of skin.

Note that all transition metals are capable of displaying quite a wide range of colors depending on their surrounding environment - interaction with the surrounding ligands splits the degeneracy of the (unfilled) d-orbitals, and the magnitude of the split is in the range that exciting an electron from the lower to higher band usually absorbs in the visible somewhere. The splitting can be quite different for different ligands. For instance Fe2+ is usually green and Fe3+ yellow-brown in aqueous solutions, but hemoglobin is bluish or blood red depending on oxygenation.
