- “Do I know anything? Let me tell you, salroka, if Varick doesn't know it, it didn't happen in this ring. You want anyone in particular?”
Varick is a member of the miner caste and an exuberant fan of Provings. According to him, he never missed from attending a Grand Proving match since he was a kid. Furthermore, he got a controlling interest in a mine off the old Rousten Thaig.
He can be asked about the Proving, its rules and about the other fighters the Warden is going to fight in the championship. He seems to be particularly fond of Piotin Aeducan and prompts the Warden to even bet money in Piotin's victory.If the Warden is of Dwarf Noble Origin and fought in the Honor Provings held in their honor during the Prologue, Varick will mention that he attended them. Similarly, if the Warden is a Dwarf Commoner, Varick will mention that he attended the Celebratory Proving in which the Dwarf Commoner participated.
