Orrul, son of the rancher Dett in the Orkney Islands, was only four years old when the Day of Darkness occurred. At this time, Orrul became very ill with a fever. He died in the night just as his father was receiving a prophetic dream from the Seafolk. This was considered a significant omen, and Orrul's funeral was accompanied by a sacrifice of grain and venison to the Mother of the Sea, and intense prayers by the Mastersinger and Orrul's family.
