Notes

[1]. relevant to Snow White as the king's daughter.

[2]. This is entirely for in-joke catching purposes, if the player asks Happy about any other famously-named dwarrows from Disney or Tolkien. Bubba is from a live-action movie version of Snow White I saw when I was a kid, so probably I am the only person in the universe who would think of trying it, but hey.

[3]. I know it's pronounce Gro-in, but seriously? JRR, you needed a life

[4]. The thing about wikipedia is that you never have an excuse to leave anything out, even when you'd really kind of like to call it a day. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glóin#Gl.C3.B3in.2C_son_of_Gr.C3.B3in .

[5]. This is in the sense of evil powers invoked in witchcraft.
