* BadassPreacher:
** Cellach who takes an arrow to the chest, and has to be knocked down by vikings to get to stop protecting his nephew.
** Colm Cille who took an ''eye'' from a Pagan god just to use it as a magnifying glass.



** Crom Cruach does exist in Irish mythology, where's he described as a Pagan god who was banished by St. Patrick.

** Crom Cruach does exist in Irish mythology, where's he described as a Pagan god who who's worship included human sacrifices and he was banished by St. Patrick. He has nothing to do with Colm Cille.

** The monks' stories and Brendan's slate sketches. The art shift during the stories that talk about Colum-Cille, or Saint Columba, doubles as a GeniusBonus because it imitates the style of manuscripts being produced at Colum-Cille's time; a style categorized as the early insular gospels, and designed for the ease in Pagan conversion by presenting Christian aspects in a comprehensible comic-book-like format. ShownTheirWork indeed.

** Scholars put the creation of the book around the year 800, which means Colmcille (d. 597) can't have had a hand in it, and the historical [[http://www.bedesworld.co.uk/aidan.htm St. Aidan]] [[note]]Not so fun fact: the real St. Aidan and his voice actor Mick Lally both died on August 31st[[/note]] lived over 150 years earlier. Also, the cover wasn't stolen for another 200 years or so. There's not much we know for sure about the creation of the book (it might have been produced entirely at Iona or Kells, or some combination, or even Lindisfarne), so they had to take some liberties in order for there to be any plot. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when the monks at Kells can't agree on the history, either, including Colmcille's methods (third eye? three hands? 36 FINGERS?!), and simply get their facts wrong. One monk says the book was begun 300 years ago by Colmcille; impossible if Aidan knew him.
