    As I understand it, there's no glass in the windows to speak of; they're all boarded up with wood. That notwithstanding, I don't believe any spells could be cast through the windows because they don't allow line of effect as defined by the rules.
    Line of Effect
    A line of effect is a straight, unblocked
    path that indicates what a spell can affect. A line of effect is
    canceled by a solid barrier. It’s like line of sight for ranged
    weapons, except that it’s not blocked by fog, darkness, and
    other factors that limit normal sight.

    You must have a clear line of effect to any target that you
    cast a spell on or to any space in which you wish to create
    an effect. You must have a clear line of effect to the point of
    origin of any spell you cast.

    A burst, cone, cylinder, or emanation spell affects only
    an area, creatures, or objects to which it has line of effect
    from its origin (a spherical burst’s center point, a coneshaped
    burst’s starting point, a cylinder’s circle, or an
    emanation’s point of origin).

    An otherwise solid barrier with a hole of at least 1 square
    foot through it does not block a spell’s line of effect. Such
    an opening means that the 5-foot length of wall containing
    the hole is no longer considered a barrier for purposes of a
    spell’s line of effect.

    Effect

    Glass is transparent, color spray is visual dependant effect. Solid or not, glass is not obstacle for clashing bands of color...

    And DM rules....?

    Since Colour Spray is a cone-shaped effect that affects people *within* it, not simply *viewing* it, I would say that it is necessary for the cone effect to be able to interact with the target. Although there would be line of sight, glass *would* block line of effect, so you couldn't cast Colour Spray through a closed window.

    However.

    As Ambrus correctly assumed, there's no glass in these windows, at least not a full set that hasn't been broken. A person could easily poke a hand or finger through to send a spell in there.

    Since you've described the building as rickety with skewed angles and gaps between its wooden boards, I was wondering whether Dj'hn had found any loose boards or gaps in the woodwork, doorjambs or window frames large enough for him to try squeezing through. Failing that, does the building have a chimney or a drainage grate for the fish guts that he could try?

    There were no gaps large enough for Dj'hn to fit through, although with a bit of help from a strong person you could probably pull open a gap large enough to wriggle through. That might make noise, though.

    There is no chimney stack (It's one of those things that RPG map-makers tend to forget are needed, like toilets, although I reckon in this place would have a stove rather than a brick chimney). As for a drainage grate, he'd need to check more fully amongst the pilings beneath the building, above the river to be certain.

    Oh, don't worry about it. I recognize that Dj'hn has already done most of what he can to help out at this point. I was just role-playing his getting caught up the excitement of the other's planning.

    And please, don't get caught up with my character's writeup in the Rogue's Gallery; it's really just intended to be a mechanical way of representing the character I want to play. In spite of what's written, it's not my intention that Dj'hn have ties to dragonkind in any way or that he belong to a race know as "loresong faen" in the world of Golarion. I proposed a character concept to Dr Simon awhile back in a spoiler block and am only using this race and class' abilities to represent that concept. I don't really know how much the other players might know or have deduced about my character's background but, as far as the character knows, he's a juvenile halfling guttersnipe and that's how I'm aiming to play him.

    Well it's still a mystery to me. ><

    Seriously I know very little about any of the other characters outside of what has gone on in the IC thread, I've tried not to spoil anything for myself.

    I finally succeeded in acquiring a Harrow deck today
    and thought it'd be nice for everyone who doesn't
    have one to see what Zellara reading looked like.

    Ooh, cool! The Bear's kind of cute, actually. Perhaps it isn't such a strange selection for Dj'han after all.
