Why is Marwyn making the long journey to meet Dany? in General (ASoIaF) Posted July 16 · Edited July 16 by Mourning Star 5 hours ago, Loose Bolt said: "Marwyn has a thick neck and a strong jaw. He is short and squat with enormous hands, a thick chest and a hard ale-belly. " https://awoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/Marwyn Marwyn looks more like Ibbenese than Valyrian. So one reason why other maesters do not trust to Marwyn could be that he has some "alien" blood in his veins. I actually think these characteristics fit with the Targaryen family. In particular the strong jaw, thickly build, and seemingly broken nose. We see these traits in the descriptions of the brothers Maekar and Baelor: Thickly built and powerful, the prince—he was surely a prince— wore a leather brigandine covered with silver studs beneath a heavy black cloak trimmed with ermine. Pox scars marked his cheeks, only partly concealed by his silvery beard His short-cropped hair was dark and peppered with grey, his strong jaw clean-shaven. His nose looked as though it had been broken more than once.
