Roivas needs a butterfly name. So I started a poll for everyone to give their opinions. We have two specific names in mind and an "other" category. If you choose other, give us an option you'd prefer.
Thanks in advance!
Edit: Might I suggest another Dichorragia nesimachus
It's been said that this seems hard to pronounce but I really like the look of the butterfly.

I feel like writing my reasoning behind Ulysses, in case people are interested. I liked that the Ulysses was named for Odysseus, who was exiled and had to fight through a series of dangers to make it back to his family, which sorta sounds like the situation Roivas is in.

Just looking at the two, I like Ulysses better simply because it have more dark in it. Roivas, Dark Place, get it?

Personally, I'd prefer "Spiffypants McButterworthe VI", but that just doesn't seem very professional.

I suggest the Lorquin's Admiral Butterfly
this motherfucker gathers in swarms and fucks shit up, gnawing small animals to the BONE.

I had a tough time deciding between Morpho and Ulysses because the Morpho is a Nymphalidae, a family named for the nymphs of Greek mythology, whose "underwings are [...] often dull and in some species look remarkably like dead leaves, or are much paler, producing a cryptic effect that helps the butterfly disappear into its surroundings." (-Wikipedia
). Roivas has previously had to "hide" from other things in the dark place. Morphos also have eyespots, linking to the light from our eyes.
Anna raises a good point for Ulysses, as well as it having a more physically attractive design.
I'm going to have to go with Morpho, though, as Morpho is only the genus, and there are a quite a few species to pick from, such as peleides, and menelaus (who has a story similar to ulysses).
Hopefully this information is useful to others.
