Dya of Oldstones Posted April 6, 2015 Share Posted April 6, 2015 I don't think Varys hired him. He's just a bounty hunter who heard about the reward Varys put out. Given current events in King's Landing, though, if I were Shadrich I'd be inclined to sit on this information for now and see how things pan out there. The city isn't a particularly stable or safe place to visit at the moment. Given how secretive Varys is, I was always suspicious of Shadrich just blurting out to Brienne that he was hired by Varys to find Sansa. I'm still not convinced he's Howland Reed like some have said, but as crackpot it works a lot better than the HS theory for me. I'm still going over the Rat Cook references with him and old gods/weirwood symbolism on the colors of the mouse on his sigil, and even grasping at straws here thinking of Bloodraven. Speaking of LF's hedge knights, Ser Morgarth was mentioned briefly as someone she danced with at the feast, but I didn't find any mention of the third, younger hedge knight. I have a feeling all three of them will become important sometime, but so far all but Shadrich have been put on the back burner. Lyn Corbray was a bit of a surprise for me, and I'm also suspecting he may be working with the Mad Mouse and both of them may have tag teamed her. This whole chapter has a calm before the storm feel about it, but I haven't come up with any solid theories on which way things will go yet.
