He has to hastily correct himself when Caesarion question's whether Caesar was actually a gambler and a womaniser.]]

* In ''VideoGame/ArcTheLadTwilightOfTheSpirits'', the main human character, Kharg, has asked repeatedly about his father, Windalf, to his mother, Nafia.

He only finds out after [[spoiler: her death]], albeit refusing to believe it until he [[spoiler: grows Drakyr wings in front of the people of Yewbell]].
