BearQueen87 Posted June 7, 2014 Share Posted June 7, 2014 I think that you are over-analyzing this. basically, Jon's looks shouldn't be taken as some logically and genetically reasonable looks. It is basically a literary ploy. Just like I say in all those threads "what if Jon looked Valyrian?", the point is that he was never meant to look that way. His Stark look is deliberate literary ploy made by Martin and Jon could have never looked any other way than the way he looks. It was a deliberate move, to get us in different direction from all those silver-haired Targaryens. Jon's looks has the value in not just R+L=J, but also the chagrin Catelyn felt for him, the closeness to Arya etc. This is one of those issues that shouldn't be observed scientifically, but rather through the glasses of narrative tool. I said the same thing a page back. If he looked like a Targ, the mystery is over. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
