Summer is Ending Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 Oh, we know. That's not the reasoning behind it: it's just that, if Jon dies and is brought back by Melisandre, that kind of resurrection seems to affect how the person looks, make them look older . Or maybe it's not the magic itself, but the time it takes for the red priest to bring them back. I mean, look at how much Beric and Catelyn changed when that happened to hem, both physically and in terms of personality.Not to mention silver hair is cool. :cool4:A scarecrow of a man, he wore a ragged black cloak speckled with stars and an iron breastplate dinted by a hundred battles. A thicket of red-gold hair hid most of his face, save for a bald spot above his left ear where his head had been smashed in. ... One of his eyes was gone, Arya saw, the flesh about the socket scarred and puckered, and he had a dark black ring all around his neck. Lord Beric’s ribs were outlined starkly beneath his skin. A puckered crater scarred his breast just above his left nipple, and when he turned to call for sword and shield, Arya saw a matching scar upon his back. The lance went through him.but her face was even worse than he remembered. The flesh had gone pudding soft in the water and turned the color of curdled milk. Half her hair was gone and the rest had turned as white and brittle as a crone’s. Beneath her ravaged scalp, her face was shredded skin and black blood where she had raked herself with her nails. But her eyes were the most terrible thing. Her eyes saw him, and they hated.They look different all right. So let's see, how will Jon be changed by his resurrection. Dagger scars in his back, his belly. He won't have the same problem as Cat as the knife at his neck only grazed him. We don't know where the fourth dagger went so it could be anything, missing eye, missing nose, part of his jaw, tongue who knows. Chunks of skin and meat left behind where he froze to the ice before they dragged him away. Clumps of hair missing for the same reason. Maybe some some severe and disfiguring frostbite. Let's not even get started on if the boar starts eating him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
