Name[edit]

酔蝶華 is spelled with characters meaning "drunk", "butterfly" and "flower", respectively. Worth noting that 酔蝶花 is also known as 風蝶草, which are flowers in the Cleome genus, also named Spider flower (not to be confused with spider lilies)
"Lotus-Eaters" refers to the race of the same in Greek mythology, who mainly fed on intoxicating lotus plants and displayed apathetic behaviour. It's also an expression in English meaning roughly "daydreamer".
