"There are people in this world who go about demanding to be killed. You must have noticed them. They quarrel in gambling games. They jump out of their automobiles in a rage. They humiliate and bully people whose capabilities they do not know. These are people who wander through the world shouting, "kill me!" And there's always someone ready to oblige to them."
—Don Vito Corleone, The Godfather video game

Bodvar Bjarki ploughed into them now, hacking two handed, his only thought to do as much damage as he could before he fell. And now they fall in heaps before him, one on top of another, and both his arms are bloodied to the shoulder, and he felled so many, the dead were stacked all about him. He stormed on as if he was insane.
"BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!"
"You have to find a way to make him mad. When he gets mad, he won't even try to hold it in."
"He cleared the ship, helmless and shieldless and hewing about him with both hands..."
