Sandy Clegg Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 (edited) Thanks to redditor I-am-the-Peel for the main bulk of this one. And it's pretty juicy. So, her theory is that Mance Rayder may be working for the Others. Full theory on reddit here: https://www.reddit.com/r/asoiaf/comments/11pn9bx/spoilers_extended_mance_rayder_is_a_servant_of/ By reading his role as someone who is helping, or aiding, necromancy (raising the dead) we get this parsing of his name: (Necro) mancer Aider. Mance - R - Ayder ... etc. But - if we add the fact that he was "born a crow" then we can use the word né, as in Jane Smith, né Thompson. Born Thompson, but changed their surname. Né crow. Born a crow ( his father was in the NW). This completes the wordplay. Then we get Né crow - mance - r - ayder Necromancer Aider.
