- A Beginning at Bleakrock
"Ah! Don't frighten an old man like that!"
- I didn't mean to scare you. "Didn't think you were still breathing when they dragged you out of the drink! But here you are, plain as day. You owe a lot to the crew from Bleakrock. A shame they didn't find anyone willing to help."
"Leave an old man be!"
Riurik's name is the same as the historical viking's name, Rurik, which was a Varangian chieftain and the founder of the Rurik dynasty.
