The famed poet and musician of Greek mythology, Orpheus is one of the few Greek heroes who descends into the Underworld and emerges unharmed, though heartbroken. An apt name for a musical canary, the story of Orpheus's journey to reclaim his lost love, Eurydice, may also be likened to Beauty's quest to reclaim the Beast when she believes him lost.
