References

  • The name of this familiar is a play on The Nutcracker Suite, a condensed version of The Nutcracker, a lengthy ballet composed by Tchaikovsky.
  • Each buff message mentions a dance - "Dance of the GravyPlum Fairies", "The Russian Dance", "The Arabian Dance", and "The Dance of the Reed Pipes", all of which are segments from The Nutcracker and/or The Nutcracker Suite. The "Dance of the GravyPlum Fairies" is a gravy-fairyation of the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy".
