The Dragon Demands Posted October 24, 2018 Share Posted October 24, 2018 (edited) Quote I'm not seeing the contradiction. Not least because the first quote is discussing the situation at the Doom, when the Old Blood were likely pretty exclusively tigers and so led Volantis into conquest and war. You have to pair this up with the rest of the talk of the ruinous cost of the wars, its ultimate failure, and the rise of the elephants, who would have made inroads among the Old Blood in the wake of the setback. Ahhhh...I forgot that just because merchants might not be able to RUN for triarch, doesn't prevent an Old Blood triarch from courting the merchant vote. That politicians might not actually be "from" the constituency they court. …..well, more simply, my question is: as a rule...are Elephant CANDIDATES, such as Trianna, always Old Blood? Would wealthy merchants NOT of the Old Blood of Valyria be forbidden from running even as Elephants?
