Talk:Gravid Rust

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki

There is, toward the end of Snuff, a mention of a clerk in the Morporkian embassy in Fourecks who is fond of venomous spiders. This makes Fourecks an ideal posting for her, of course. I don't believe there is any suggestion of Lord Vetinari sending anyone to do young Rust any harm; in fact His Lordship denies the suggestion quite explicitly. Fourecks' collection of deadly fauna is well known, however, and the possibility of an unfortunate encounter certainly exists for a young man known to be rather reckless and heedless. --Old Dickens 00:37, 31 January 2012 (CET)
Gravid derives from the Latatian gravidus, burdened or laden. Burdened with his family's history, I suppose, and couldn't overcome it. --Old Dickens (talk) 02:15, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
