Quantico, page 136 you mention "tawny pupil". . . reckon you got it mixed-up with tawny iris.
Dictionary says a pupil is a "n. dark ciruclar opening in the center of the iris of the eye, varying in size to regulate the light entering the retina. . ."
Remember the iris is the color of the eye, as well as a rainbow and a flower. Color is the key word to remember.

Absolutely correct. QUANTICO's publishing history meant that it never went through a thorough copy-edit--not that we catch everything even then! My usual errors involve gun calibers and stuff like that...
