* EveryYearTheyFizzleOut: Villard believes that his father was this, since his father was a famous fencing champion who died in a duel with a student. [[spoiler:Suba, who was that student, eventually sets the record straight. Villard Sr. had found out that Suba and his wife were sleeping together, and gave Suba a live rapier for their fight while only arming himself with a blunt training sword. Villard Sr. then beat Suba within an inch of his life until finally he decided to show mercy to Suba. At that point a humiliated Suba stabbed Villard Sr. in the back.]]
