Thanks I think XD
Thanks!
No problem! :)
Calyx also means a group of sepals of a flower
Yes! It has a crown and horse so it's the king. Perhaps, Galar's third legend?
I’m pretty sure the third legend is Eternatus

Most sources say Calyrex comes from “calyx” (Latin for “bud”) and “rex” (Latin for “king”), but there may also be some connection to the Rex breed of rabbits. Calyrex looks rabbit-like, and its orb…necklace…thing might be inspired by the dewlap (neck fat) that all Rex rabbits have.

Sounds like "Caledonia" (Latin name for Scotland) and "Rex" (king)
