Mostly posting this here so I'll remember it.

If you read Qwan, you'll remember that Qwan has a companion that's a small, headless, six-legged, flying pig/dog thing.

Here's the translation of the commentary from the book, plus the scholarly commentary on it. I've corrected the OCR errors that I could figure out.

(This is also way more commentary than most of the other entries get.)
