Nisus, in Greek Mythology the king of Megara, enemy of King Minos. He was gifted a lock of purple hair on his head that made him invincible and his city, impenetrable. His daughter, Scylla, fell in love with Minos and decided to betray her father by cutting off his lock of hair so Minos could enter the city and take her for his wife. Zeus turns Nisus into a sea eagle to preserve his life, and Scylla into a sea bird/monster as punishment. THAT Scylla, of Scylla and Charybdis.
So, purple hair, don't care.
