    Big Walder Analysis

    Godric borell seems to be a rather ruthless guy, a sisterman after all. If he was in the Freys skin he would have probably said something similar. BW is also quite young so all the guys in front of him in the line of succession can die of old age, sickness, war, mishaps, etc. And we have to see that BW is a 9 year old kid: all nine year old kids from noble houses dream to become lords or famous knights one day. Jon Snow once said that he is the lord of winterfell in a game with Robb. He never meant for robb to die. Even though he admits that he wanted WF. I am also unsure if we should apply medical terms that are usually used on adults for 9 year old kids. If BW is the same in 20 years, i would reconsider my opinion. BW the most psychopathic person in ASOIAF seriously? so Ramsay Bolton, Gregor Clegane, Littlefinger, Euron Greyjoy, Aerys, Vargo Hoat, Cersei Lannister are all just tragically misunderstood people who are a little rough around the edges?

    Big Walder Analysis

    If this is true a large part of westerosi noblemen would be sociopaths and or psychopaths. Godric Borrell suggests as well that Wyman Manderly should kill the Freys who brought back his dead son's bones. That's exactly what Manderly does. BW shows that he's smart and cunning, he didn't say I'll kill my own family. Does Jaime Lannister or Tyrion show any grief after they hear about their uncle Stafford's death? Tywin Lannister gives up on his favourite son Jaime after he gets captured, the same as the Blackfsh after edmure's capture, or Balon after Theon's capture. Old Lord Hunter has been killed by his youngest son, a son who will soon kill his elder brethren, according to LF. Tywin Lannister wiped out two entire families. Arnolf Karstark conspires to marry off his niece Alys to his son and tries to force the Lannisters to kill his own nephew and rightful lord Harrion. Randyll Tarly threatens to kill his eldest son, after mobbing him in various ways. Stannis Baratheon was an accomplice in his brother's murder (although maybe unknowingly). Bronn would kill a babe at the breast for the right amount of money, Allar Deem does it for free. Victarion kills his wife. And the list goes on. Basically if you want to survive or thrive in Westerosi nobility/society you need to show off the attributes of a sociopath: lack of empathy, lack of conscience, etc. this doesn't mean that you are a sociopath. For example Bran notices that both Ned and Robb have a "Lord's face" that is very different from their behaviour in private. Both can be harsh and cold at times and they know they have to be perceived by others as such in order to survive. Yes there are better terms to describe BW and other characters: ruthless, cunning, smart, effective, unscrupulous, intelligent, harsh, hard, ambitious, dangerous, brutal, efficient, cold, severe, etc. We don't need to diagnose them all with the DSM

    Craster is a Stark

    The dogs are Starks as well it seems. Makes sense since dogs are easy to warg and some Starks are wargs, dogs are also kin to direwolves and Starks have a direwolf as sigil and occasionally as house pet. We are onto something here... Good point, I always assumed that WW are a different race/people while wights are transformed dead humans. It doesn't explain though why the WW have something against humans though.

    Aegon TWOW

    How is he supposed to get the Tyrells when he marries Arianne? Why do you think it could go either way? Aegon doesn't have Dragons while Daenerys has at least one. It's exceedingly hard to kill a Dragon without Dragons. And that's without mentioning Daenerys will probably have an army of Unsullied, Freedmen, Sellswords and Dothraki at her back. And before he mets Dany he will probably have to deal with Littlefinger and his allies(Vale & Riverlands probably), Euron Geryjoy and less likely but not completely unthinkable Stannis or whoever holds the North. IMHO Aegon will be crucial in the Downfall of the Lannister-Tyrell alliance, he will rise high and then fall quickly. BTW welcome to the forum !

    Nice catch. Never occured to me that she might have seen MOqorro already.

    Perfumed Seneschal

    But she didn't say remember what you experienced in the HOTU. I think she meant how the Undying tried to use her for their own purposes in a similar way that Kraken, dark flame, lion, griffin, sun's son, mummer's dragon and the perfumed seneschal might do in the future.

    http://www.ew.com/article/2014/06/26/george-r-r-martin-winds-winter-tease It's tha in the last third of the article. http://nerdalicious.com.au/books/george-r-r-martin-discusses-tyrion-and-daenerys-in-the-upcoming-winds-of-winter-spoilers/ That's what I've found. There are probably better sources if you search more deeply.

    IIRC GRRM once mentioned that Daenerys will only meet Tyrion at the end of TWOW... Lion and Kraken are quite easy to find out, because they follow the same pattern as the sun's son. They describe the family sigil. Dark flame is harder because it's a nickname of Moqorro not his sigil or flag or something. Although she might hear about the nickname and then it's easy. No. Hear me, Daenerys Targaryen. The glass candles are burning. Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun’s son and the mummer’s dragon. Trust none of them. Remember the Undying. Beware the perfumed seneschal. A closer look at the warning: First she mentions "things": Glass candles, Pale mare Afterwards she mentions single persons: Kraken (Victarion), dark flame (Moqorro), Lion (Tyrion), Griffin (Jon Connington) sun's son(Quentyn), mummer's dragon(Faegon). Then she mentions the Undying: A group of people. Then she mentions the Perfumed seneschal: A group of people (all those on the Ship).

    Perfumed Seneschal

    Well her business is ship assurances or something along the lines. So yes she can continue her business. Arya kills a guy in a similar business in Braavos, where slavery is abolished. She is quite old, lonesome and rich, people in such a position don't need to be precautios anymore, even if they have been like that for their entire life. Après moi le déluge could very well be her motto, since she doesn't seem to have a family or any other obligations. The widow was expelled by the Volantenes noblemen from the citycentre, because she was a slave. Revenge could be a big part of her motivation to help Daenerys. As could her own experience as a slave be. Also the volantenese noblemen are slavers, while she might be not. Furthermore she seems to be a follower of the red priests and they have officially taken daenerys side. Maybe she is just gentle and nice to Penny? Tyrion is nice to penny as well (most of the times at least) and it's not that he owes her something. He isn't responsible for her brother's death after all. Jorah doesn't mistreat penny, even if she tried to kill Tyrion who was his card to get daenerys favor again. Correct me if I am wrong but didn't Tyrion or Jorah insist tha Penny comes along? Maybe I am messing things up with Tyrion leaving the Slave camp together with her... It's some time ago when I last read Tyrions chapters in ADWD. Yes the FM theories are quite hilarious most of the times.

    If the widow wants to harm Daenerys, which is unlikely because of what Lost melnibonean said about her in the quote below, why should she send Penny? She does not even know her! The widow is rich enough to put a bounty on Daenerys head, hire a real assassin, or support the Anti-Daenerys coalition with ships, money and sellswords. No need to send mummers/dwarf women. Agree with the above. Can faceless men change their body size as well as their face? Or are there growth-restricted FM? Seriously everybody is a FM in some crackpot theory... This on the other hand sounds perfectly reasonable.

    Perfumed Seneschal

    I think if the widow wants daenerys to be killed,(which is unlikely IMHO) she has better options than Penny. Penny isn't really a killer, ok she tried to kill Tyrion but we know how that went... Daenerys is bigger and probably stronger than penny not to mention that she has a dragon and a shitload of loyal soldiers/guardsmen around her at the time when penny met the Widow of the waterfront.

    He doesn't, but he was on the perfumed seneshal (the ship's name is perfumed seneschal). Moqorro or Tyrion don't fit the description either.

    Perfumed Seneschal

    Jorah was on the senechal (which is the ship) and as you pointed out Tyrion (the Lion) and Moqorro (dark flame) have already been mentioned. That leaves Jorah... Dany be beware of Jorah.

    Perfumed Seneschal

    Jorah isn't mentioned above and Jorah was also on board of the "fragrant steward". So Quaithe might not be repeating herself...
