Thomaerys Velaryon Posted January 9 Share Posted January 9 (edited) Note: My comment is not related to TV-show images but since this post has been growing outside of this scope lately, I think this is the right place to ask my question. I was wondering something concerning the depictions of Areo Hotah in the Wiki (link here). Despite the fact that we don't have a description regarding his facial hair or lack thereof in the books, all the art we currently have depicts him with a beard. It is wrong, right ? In Norvos only the Bearded Priests are allowed to have beards, the rest of the Norvoshi have mustache or no hair at all (TWOIAF, The Free Cities: Norvos). While Areo has been away from Norvos from decades now, when in doubt he always goes back to the teachings of the Bearded Priests ("Serve. Protect. Obey.") he learned in his youth. It seems to me Areo would not wear a beard which is sacrilegious from the Norvoshi point of view. Thoughts ?
