Trivia[edit]

The bow's zebra accents are possibly a reference to Cairon, a centaur from Michael Ende's Never-ending Story who is described as being a zebra from the waist down. Cairon himself is an homage to Cheiron of Greek mythology, being a sagacious centaur who tutored such heroes as Achilles and Hercules.
