* In Creator/RobertEHoward's Franchise/ConanTheBarbarian story "Literature/RoguesInTheHouse", Murilo is given a recognizable ear as a hint. That said, he admits he doesn't know if it's a hint he should flee the city as a fugitive, or that it's just a sign his upcoming execution for his not-yet-revealed treachery against the state. Either way, he decides not to wait and find out and chooses to break out Conan from prison to kill the cruel man who now holds his life in his hands.

''(listens)'' Well, I'm glad their not my folks too, Barry, but look at it from their point of view. They do have ''three other sons.''
