Red face Strange coloured Budgie?

I have a quick question...
I had a budgie that was nearly entirely white, except for a pale violet blotch on his chest and a tiny bit of violet underneath his wings. His cere was a normal mature male's blue and his eyes were normal too. I don't have a photo, but from the description, can someone tell me what he could be?
(I feel bad asking everything, but i have so many questions! I hope no one minds x)

CloudySkies is on a distinguished road

Just a wild guess, but I'm thinking he was a double factor dominant pied, sky budgie with 1 or 2 violet factors? Or cobalt with one violet factor. With two dominant pied genes, he would have mostly clear feathers, even over the face, covering the cheek patches and necklace even. Or, perhaps a recessive pied plus dominant pied, as I believe my female budgie, Cloud, appears to be. She appears very much as you have described, except that now that she has matured, one eye has a dark iris and the other eye is still black, so I believe she's both dominant pied and recessive pied which has given her almost all clear feathers with just a couple of blotches of cobalt blue on her rump and little smudges of blue on her shoulders.
