Norvig was a slaver on board Lunarah Dawnrider's ship Night Heron. He was in charge of the upper of the two rowing decks; the beasts under his command hated him, but were grateful that they had him as a driver instead of a crueler beast, as Norvig's idea of fun did not include physical beatings. He had Spot as his personal attendant; he verbally abused her so much she was terrified of him.
Norvig's life ended when he made the mistake of complaining about the folly of sailing northward in winter; his captain took it to be a personal insult and beheaded him, replacing him with the stoat Blunge. As Blunge was insanely bad-tempered and abusive, the oarslaves actually began to miss Norvig and want him back. He was a minor character; nothing further is known.
