Akril, you are right. The verse on the gauntlet reads:

Flesh may cross the portal and seek its Master, Death,
Flesh may go where Death has trod, and challenge, like Shahrazad,
He who reigns beneath the sod,  to spare a mortal’s breath

The “Knight of the Night” never reached Death to challenge him. It is a very obvious reference to Shahrazad of “A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Shahrazad challenged death by telling her stories nightly to stay alive. KQ6 has a Arabian motif to it. It is absurd to think that someone as literate and well read as Jane would make such a mistake in a game that she probably did a lot of research on.
