Mithras Posted July 24, 2015 Share Posted July 24, 2015 Currently, we have been given indirect accounts of the prophecies surrounding Azor Ahai and almost nothing about the prophecy of the prince that was promised. AA is a hero who saved the humanity in the Long Night and prophesized to come again one more time to save the humanity again. tPtwP is a hero prophesized to come in the future. There is no clue that tPtwP saved he humanity once in the Long Night like AA supposedly did. With the available information, this looks like an important structural difference between these two figures. Still, Mel uses these terms interchangeably though she prefers Azor Ahai more. Aemon did not reject to this unification though he did not call this savior anything other than tPtwP. I think without seeing the actual sources, it would be quite erroneous to trust in the conclusions of Aemon or Mel or Rhaegar. After all, they are all proven to be wrong about the prophecies. Don’t you think this should hurt their credibility a bit? How long the darkness endured no man can say, but all agree that it was only when a great warrior—known variously as Hyrkoon the Hero, Azor Ahai, Yin Tar, Neferion, and Eldric Shadowchaser—arose to give courage to the race of men and lead the virtuous into battle with his blazing sword Lightbringer that the darkness was put to rout, and light and love returned once more to the world. Yandel reports a similar unification too. In this case, it is clear that all of the heroes he mentioned belong to different places and have different myths. Should we equate tPtwP to these other versions of AA too? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
