Mithras Posted March 12, 2015 Share Posted March 12, 2015 Some people criticize fake Aegon theories (at least the ones with Illyrio being the biological father of the boy) by claiming that the Valyrian looks of fAegon was never guaranteed, so this conspiracy should fail. Indeed, what if the boy was born with common features? This is where TWOIAF steps in. At one of those conventions before the release of the Worldbook, it was reported that Visenya was implied to use magic in the conception of Maegor Targaryen. This bit was removed from TWOIAF but we will probably read it in Fire & Blood. However, many facts supporting this idea are still in the book, such as the anomalies about Maegor. He had an immensely powerful stature, as if making heavy use of steroids. Of course the counterpart of steroids is magic in ASOIAF. It is perfectly proved that Maegor’s seeds were corrupt (for lack of a better word). Some of his wives were known to give birth to normal kids but with Maegor, they gave birth to a bunch of “things” that could hardly be considered as humans. There is also a long list of atrocities done by the Valyrians in the Worldbook. They were into some kind of twisted genetic engineering fueled by bloodmagic. Many of the mysterious races result from such sick experiments involving interbreeding their slaves/convicts with beasts, examples including but not limited to the Brindled Men (brindled wyverns + humans), lizard-men (reptiles + humans), eyeless cave-dwellers/winged men (bats + humans) and so on. Therefore, if there was someone who knew the necessary magic, it could have been guaranteed that fAegon could be born with necessary Valyrian features. And the person who carried out the magic can be none other than good old Varys. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
