Colleague's Ideas We Rejected

After putting out the call for hedge fund mascot ideas, a few rolled in that had to be rejected. They include: 

The Royal Imperial Eagle: Rome collapsed. Enough said.

Balerion the Black Dread; the Hungarian Horntail: While the learned references to “Game of Thrones” and the Harry Potter series are appreciated, dragons are not real and the last thing hedge funds want is to open themselves up to comments about fanciful thinking or, say, imaginary returns.
