I was at a loss for a new hyena, beyond the vague desire to try an orange one again. I knew if I could figure out the name, everything else would fall into place.
It turned out I was right, because that's exactly what happened.
For some reason, I hadn't known that Calliope had a second son. The most likely cause? Linus was given different parents by various myths and I simply hadn't heard any involving Calliope until now. Tragically, like his brother, he was violently killed. Unlike his brother, he wasn't torn limb from limb by crazed disciples of Dionysus; he was killed by Heracles while attempting to teach him how to play the lyre. No wonder I hadn't ever wanted Heracles in my stable.
Linus blended perfectly. His orange-brown coloration would match Orpheus's similar brown-orange combination. Instead of going for the slightly brighter orange from Tanaris, like I had for Kallisto all those months ago, I opted for Skarf, the duller orange hyena from Uldum. (This is of course why I knew brown Madexx was up again, as mentioned in the previous post. This is all completely Madexx's doing.)
I tossed down a freeze trap, since Sultan Oogah came with him. Hilariously, Skarf dodged the trap, catching the Sultan in it. The latter bobbed around amusingly as I tamed his mount out from under him.
Linus feels right. Finally, I feel at peace with Kalliope's hyena. Now I just need to make sure that Orpheus doesn't get jealous of him or anything silly like that.
