    • If the monster drops meat:
      <name> says, "walk thith way, thir," and leads you to some more meat. He sees that you're imitating his limp, and smiles broadly. "Very clever, thir."
      <name> jabs you with a hypodermic needle. "Thith should perk you up, thir," he says. "Altho, I found thome extra meat. Don't athk where."
      <name> says "let me give you a hand, thir. Oh, no, I didn't mean literally, I meant that I found thome more meat," he says, smiling at your confusion.
      <name> scans the battlefield and finds some extra meat. You congratulate him on his keen eyesight, and he smiles broadly. "Thankth," he says. "I have my father'th eyeth." You decide not to ask the obvious question.
      <name> finds a little extra meat lying on the battlefield. You convince him to hand it over, rather than use it for spare parts. You thank him and he smiles a snaggle-toothed grin at you.
    • If the monster does not drop meat:
      <name> grins as you adjust your gear following the battle, and asks if you'd like a hand. "It'th all right, I have theveral to thpare," he grins. You politely decline.
      <name> sneaks up behind you and scares you. "Damn your eyes!" you shout. <name> grins broadly, winks, and replies, "too late!"
      <name> cautiously scans the horizon for angry mobs with torches and rakes. He smiles and says "The coatht ith clear, thir."
      <name> beams and whistles a cheerful tune as he scavenges your opponentss corpses for spare parts. You wisely decide not to ask what he intends to use them for.
      <name> gives you a grin and a thumbs-up. Then you give him the thumb back.
  • Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones:
    <name> says, "mathter, I have a bone to pick with you!"

Arena Messages

  • When entered an Obstacle Course:
    <name> is perfectly capable of navigating the obstacle course. He just chooses not to.


  • This familiar is a reference to Igor, the hunchbacked minion traditionally associated with the various film versions of Frankenstein.
  • Abby-Normal from the haiku is a reference to the movie Young Frankenstein, where Igor (pronounced "Eye-gor") uses a brain marked "abnormal" for the new monster, and claims he thought it was from a person named "Abby Normal".
  • The message where the familiar sneaks up behind you and scares you is also from Young Frankenstein.
  • Faithful Handyman from the haiku is a reference to the 1975 cult musical Rocky Horror Picture Show. The lyrics to the song "Sweet Transvestite", sung by Tim Curry (as the character Dr. Frank-N-Further) start with "How d'you do, / I see you've met my / faithful handyman," referring to his hunchbacked alien manservant.
  • This also references the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett, in which there is an entire race consisting of people quite similar to this familiar, all named Igor. They are master surgeons and share the same speech mannerism (replacing "s" with "th"). The comments about "hav[ing] [hith] father'th eyeth," references the reuse of organs and appendages among Igors in Discworld.
  • "Whistling a Cheerful Tune" could be a reference to "Whistling a Happy Tune" from The King and I.
  • "Damn your eyes!" is a line from a song titled "Sam Hall". The exchange, "Damn your eyes!" "Too Late!" is also a quote from the movie Young Frankenstein, spoken by Gene Wilder & Marty Feldman, with Feldman pointing to his trademark bulging eyes.
