Saint Ulthar was a heroic mariner who braved crashing waves and high winds to rescue several fishermen who were caught by a sudden squall. Most of the fishermen survived but Ulthar was lost at sea when he ventured back into the teeth of the storm to find a fisherman who'd fallen overboard during the initial rescue. Neither Ulthar nor this lost fisherman were ever seen again. Legend has it that grateful fisher folk buried Ulthar in a hillock barrow in the marsh south of Venza.
Fisher folk often wear small silver amulets with the stamped image of man holding a lantern aloft while standing in the prow of a boat.
