What normally gave him life: Blood? Oxygen? Food? Something to drink? Sleep? Any organ of his? Either of both of his parents? Anything or anyone he considered "worth living for"?

Is it one of his happiest days because he got married? Or engaged? Or because he learned that the person he loves loves him back? Did he become a father? Did he have significant success in school/college/his job/sports/any other hobby of his?

Or "giving him life" = "making him feel that he's alive"? Adrenaline? Was he bungee jumping or anything like that?

Was he poisoned? Was he sick? Was something wrong with his heart? With his blood itself? Clogged arteries relevant?

I hope these new puzzles aren't too easy... Don't worry. I'm not sure if I've seen all of them so far, but as far as I can tell, they're just fine :-)

Did he drown in a puddle of his blood?

Was he shot? Stabbed? Slashed? Did he have any of his body parts removed? Torn off?

Did he drown in a puddle of his blood? Yes. There's not much else to discern, other than how exactly this came to happen, MAYBE who it is.

You got it.
********SPOILER**********
The most common explanation known for Attila the Hun's demise was his accidental death on the day of his wedding. Normally the sort of man who drank little at festivities, he instead chose to drink so much that he did not notice the nosebleed he got sometime during the evening. He was found drowned in his own blood the next day.


Thanks for playing, as always (:
