Copied from Poul Anderson Appreciation:
When Vogg names Hrolf Kraki, Hrolf rewards Vogg with two gold arm rings. Vogg responds by promising to avenge Hrolf. His promise proves prophetic.
In Norse mythology, Vali avenges Baldr and Vidar avenges Odin.
In Alan Moore's and David Lloyd's V For Vendetta:
the vendetta-waging title character is code-named V;
the title of every installment begins with "V";
(so what is the last installment? Clue: Norse mythology);
"the way, the truth and the life" is quoted in French, thus "la voie, la verite, la vie."
So there is something about the letter "V."
