Named for the hero in John Keats’ poem The Eve of St. Agnes. Porphyro was deeply in love with Madeline (planet 2569) but was thoroughly despised by all of Madeline’s family. A friend helped Porphyro hide in Madeline’s bedchamber before her bedtime on the Eve of St. Agnes. Porphyro stood over Madeline as she wakened from her dream of him. With Madeline’s family in drunken stupor following revelry the evening before, Porphyro was able to carry her away. (M 7157)
