So, a lot of people think there's more to Darkstar than meets the eye. And they're right. He's the son of Arthur Dayne and Lyanna Stark.

Here's the evidence:

- We know he's related to Arthur, because his surname is Dayne.

- His first name is Gerold, obviously in honor of Arthur's companion Gerold Hightower.

- He professes to be "of the night", which is something Batman says sometimes. What's the sigil of House Whent? A bat.

What do all of these knights of the Kingsguard have in common? They were at the Tower of Joy with Lyanna. Ergo, Arthur was the one who impregnated Lyanna, and they decided on the name Gerold Dayne together. Lyanna made Ned promise to keep the name, and see that he was raised in Dorne. So, Darkstar was passed off as a lesser Dayne.

Thoughts?

Darkstar is in his 20ies, so there is no way he could be Lyanna's son.

So, Darkstar is between 25 and 30 years old...

Sorry.

Darkstar could easily just appear to be older than he really is. He's obviously a skilled manipulator, so he lies about his age so people will take him more seriously than they would a 15-16 year old.

Yes, but there is one source we can't doubt. And that is author. He confirmed Darkstar's age

Even if Darkstar was the right age, which he isn't, you're still ignoring and disputing the wealth of information that puts R+L=J.

Plus, if Arthur Dayne and Lyanna Stark had a child, the child would be bastard born, and not have the surname Dayne. He would be Gerold Sand, or Gerold Snow, and if he was indeed legitimized at some point in his life, Arianne would have mentioned it by now.

Also, indeed, I have to agree with Mladen, Darkstar is just too old for it to even be possibly true.
