Rename the Red Dukes Barded Nightmare to "El Morzillo"

Yes, yes, yes. I know that this is a rather minimal change but it serves to get a tiny bit closer to the lore:

In the Novel "The Red Duke" the Horse the Duke of Aquitaine rode in life was a gift from an Estalian Noble. The Horse was named El Morzillo. It had perished during the Crusades in Araby, but when the Red Duke rose as Vampire, he resurrected El Morzillo as Nightmare to serve as his steed once again.

The vampire smiled, running his armoured hand along the fleshless neck of his steed, forgetting that El Morzillo no longer had a mane to stroke. The Estalian warhorse had died in Araby, his bones bleaching under the desert sun. It was the phantom of his faithful steed that served him now, conjured from the shadow world beyond death by the ghastly powers now at the vampire’s command. El Morzillo had answered his master’s call, returning to the Red Duke as a grisly nightmare of bone and sinew, balefire burning in the depths of its skull, smoke flaring from its jaws.

Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him? For a Middenland DLC with Boris and the Ar-Ulric!

Queek could smell their hatred, ratcheted to a degree that even he could not evoke in their simple hearts. He stepped over the old orange-fur’s body, eager to see for himself what it was they saw. But he heard it first.
'Waaaaaaaggh! Gorfang!'

    That's pretty nifty. Gelt got his personal Pegasus, Quicksilver in a patch, so I don't see why the Red Duke shouldn't get El Morzillo.

    Does "El Morzillo" actually mean anything, by the way?

    Hahahhaa you don’t know how funny is that name for a spaniard. Google ‘Morcilla’ and go to google images and you would get an idea of what that means.

    Ps: Morzillo=~ male morcilla (more or less)
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY

    The horse is a barded Nightmare, not a Vampire. And for the Name: that's GWs usual level of "humor in naming".

    Sorry I meant that the Red duke is Vampire not his horse. Anyway, It would be really cool if they add that name and some special model to that steed ( in case they feel they wanna work :) )

    The Red Duke sitting atop his hellish steed, a creature which could make one's blood turn cold, whose very name was uttered in hushed tones of dread the world over - "El Morzillo"; The Blood Sausage.
