|Summary||0011883: Heliotrope is one of the possible colors for dwarven iris/eyes, which is not on-theme|
|Description||HELIOTROPE in descriptor_color_standard.txt has an RGB value of 223, 115, 255; a shade of violet based on the heliotrope flower: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliotrope_(color) [^]|
"Heliotrope" is also an alternative name for real-world bloodstone. In-game bloodstone is never referred to as heliotrope.
Nearly all DWARF eye color modifiers are associated with metals, stone and earth (e.g. gold, emerald, raw umber). Included is IRIS_EYE_HELIOTROPE.
Heliotrope is the only color inconsistent with the other dwarven eye colors because its RGB values correspond to the real-life flower and not the gemstone (which is SEA_GREEN). HELIOTROPE was most likely confused with the gemstone.
|Steps To Reproduce|
|Additional Information||Excluding random gen, heliotrope is also used for goblin hair, bismuth, lavender jade, and almond flower. They all appear to be accurate or on-theme.|
If the rgb for HELIOTROPE were changed, these would have to be updated as well, so the best option would be to just remove IRIS_EYE_HELIOTROPE:1 from the dwarven eye color pool.
