The dwarves lit their torches when it got too dark to see. Rog noticed little carvings of a creature in the walls of the tunnel.

“What are those, Fäfneer?” Rog asked.

Fäfneer hushed Rog and then said quietly, “Those are carvings of the salamander,” and he said nothing else.

Rog watched at the carvings as Rog went. The carving of the creature seemed to dance around.  It flicked its tongue in some areas. In others it chased its tail.
