Haroun's nightshirt is described as “his favourite long nightshirt (bright red with purple patches)."(Page 53) The purpose of the nightshirt and its colors are to solidify what we see as important character traits. Red and purple denote specific traits such as energy, passion, strength, power, spirituality, and of course nobility.
