To whomever keeps adding that Blakey is a reference to Bill Bailey:

The following is a poem written by William Blake.


How sweet I roam'd from field to field, And tasted all the summer's pride 'Til the prince of love beheld Who in the sunny beams did glide! He shew'd me lilies for my hair And blushing roses for my brow; He led me through his garden fair, Where all his golden pleasures grow. With sweet May dews my wings were wet, And Phoebus fir'd my vocal rage He caught me in his silken net, And shut me in his golden cage. He loves to sit and hear me sing, Then, laughing, sports and plays with me; Then stretches out my golden wing,And mocks my loss of liberty.

Having a similar name doesn't make something a reference, especially when much of the evidence points to it being a reference to something else.

Had it crossed your mind it could be a reference to both? Bill Bailey and Bill Blakey sound incredibly similar... Gr33nday345 17:25, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Of course it had, but again: The poem written by William Blake is almost identical to the poem sung by Bill Blakey. Furthermore, Mod Chihiro posted on 16-17-618-58730017, page 10 that

"There is a cultural reference hidden away in this update, but it is about as far from cheesy eighties pop as it is possible to be ..." --Nightgunner1 17:28, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Despite the fact that that mod post was in reference to Rick Astley, I edited the trivia, how about that? Gr33nday345 17:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I suppose that's the best I'll be able to get... --Nightgunner1 17:34, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

sounds like he got lured into mort myre either by the queen or some sort of spider as it does make some refrence to a siver net. also it is possible that he is/ once was an icyne as he refers himself that he had wings but that is probably just a refrence to him still being alive and free. any way his cause of death has something to do with geting lured into the swamp somehow, maybe a new quest or something will confirm that in future.

NOTICE[edit source]

Will people please stop putting that stuff about Bill Bailey? He's a referrence to William Blake, and Bill is short for William. Blake is one y away from Blakey, so do the maths. He's not a referrence to Bill Bailey, nothing about him resembles the man. If he was balding and kept talking about how he tried to audition for Gimli in Lord of the Rings then maybe he could be a referrence to Bailey. As it stands now, he's not. Stop adding it. Trivia sections are not for adding random junk about how something sounds like something else. Asparagoose 17:04, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
