Chartreuse and scarlet! Ouch! Now I just have to find a way to fit
poor Vorharopoulos into the story just for the color combination (I
didn't even know there was a Vorharopoulos).
I will remain convinced that the original Count Vorharopoulos who picked those colours suffered (as many human males do) from red/green colour blindness, especially after some kind soul here on the list found and pointed me at a website that duplicates what the sufferer of that problem actually sees, for the female and unaffected eye, and to the colour-blind scarlet and chartreuse is actually a very nice and soothing dark-brown and creamy-beige combo.

I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men
and other mythical creatures.
