- ↑ Grayne's eyes are referred to as "useless" (pg. 3)
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ 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.
Notice: The following are out-of-game references. They are not found in any in-game books, but can still be considered part of The Elder Scrolls lore and are included for completeness.
