<Player>, The Twilight slaves you and other have been rescuing from Wolf's Run are wandering into camp, but they can't tell me who they are and they speak in riddles and gibberish.

I thought Twilight Hammer kept the slaves in line the old fashioned way - know, whips and chains - but it's clear that there's some brainwashing at work...


  • This NPC, along with Ian Duran, is a reference to the band Duran Duran. Two of Duran Duran's greatest hits were "Rio" (which includes the line "Her name is Rio, and she dances on the sand") and "Hungry Like the Wolf". In reference to the latter song, Rio Duran quotes lyrics from "Hungry Like the Wolf" while on the quest N [81] Free Your Mind, the Rest Follows.
  • Although Rio appears to be a druid from Gilneas, she is never seen in worgen form.
