  1. Grayne's eyes are referred to as "useless" (pg. 3)
  2. Sul makes noticeable references to Azura during this chapter such as prayers and rhetorical questions. Varieties of Faith in the Empire states that Azura is worshipped in two pantheons; the Dunmer and the Khajiit, so Sul likely falls under one of those categories.
  3. On pg. 6, Sul "splash[es] water in his face and blink red eyes at himself."—red eyes are a trait held exclusively by Dunmer.
