->''Being trained by the Assassins' Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than he expected (his father wasn't too happy about it either), but that was only the beginning of his problems ...''

** A couple to ''Literature/TheBible'', such as a RunningGag of Teppic seeing seven fat cows and seven lean cows in his dreams, another dream vision where he sees a hand writing a symbolic message on a wall, and Teppic using his powers to part the waters of the Djel when he goes to destroy the pyramid.

* BilingualBonus: If you're up to speed on your CanisLatinicus, the name of one of the warriors mentioned in Copolymer's ''Literature/TheIliad'' parody, Lavaeolus, translates to "Rinser of Winds". (Lavaeolus later [[BrickJoke shows up in person]] in ''Discworld/{{Eric}}'', where he does indeed turn out to be Rincewind's ancestor.)
