Corvo the Crow Posted March 10 Share Posted March 10 Too tired and going to bed so really not putting the effort into it, but it's really interesting to think. Melisandre is tall, white, red haired and red eyed and her face is described as... heartshaped. In fact she is one of the only two characters (3 if you include SSMs, Shiera) to be described as heartshaped, Jeyne Westerling who was described as such once and Mel was described 4 times. Quote “Maester,” said Lady Melisandre, her deep voice flavored with the music of the Jade Sea. “You ought take more care.” As ever, she wore red head to heel, a long loose gown of flowing silk as bright as fire, with dagged sleeves and deep slashes in the bodice that showed glimpses of a darker bloodred fabric beneath. Around her throat was a red gold choker tighter than any maester’s chain, ornamented with a single great ruby. Her hair was not the orange or strawberry color of common red-haired men, but a deep burnished copper that shone in the light of the torches. Even her eyes were red … but her skin was smooth and white, unblemished, pale as cream. Slender she was, graceful, taller than most knights, with full breasts and narrow waist and a heart-shaped face. Men’s eyes that once found her did not quickly look away, not even a maester’s eyes. Many called her beautiful. She was not beautiful. She was red, and terrible, and red. She is tall, white, red eyed and red haired, reminiscent of a Weirwood. Quote Red eyes, Jon realized, but not like Melisandre’s. He had a weirwood’s eyes. Red eyes, red mouth, white fur. Blood and bone, like a heart tree. He belongs to the old gods, this one. And he alone of all the direwolves was white. Six pups they’d found in the late summer snows, him and Robb; five that were grey and black and brown, for the five Starks, and one white, as white as Snow. Jon thinks Ghost's eyes are not like Melisandre's and are of a weirwood's he also compares him to... A HEART TREE. Could Mel having a Heartshaped face is to strike home the point of her already weirwood like appearence not being a coincidence and to make a connection with heart trees?
