Huginn: Life is just not the same without the Ogre of Baku. There is no human with as much panache, as much flair and creative ruthlessness.

Muninn: I seem to remember a raven who sacrificed a knight to protect his queen. I seem to remember a knight who sacrificed a bishop to protect his king. And I remember all these games, all of them, played out on a tapestry of nights and days.

H: Was there a counter-gambit in that crazy game?

M: No, there were many attempts to return the material, but he who sacrificed gained so much time and space that the question became moot.

H: And in life, did rewards come beyond the victory on the board?

M: The knight may yet become king. Or the pawn become queen. It is all a madness of bread and wine these days.
