Alia of the knife Posted October 12, 2013 Share Posted October 12, 2013 That's what was I'm curious about. The magic ritual, he described, was definitely successful. And we are repeatedly told that the royal blood is the best for blood magic. According to his story: when he was a boy and traveling with a troupe, the men showed up and asked to buy him. I doubt he was the only child/boy in the troupe. His story is a complete mystery, but I think that what he told Tyrion was the truth and I also think it has more significance to the story than it seems. I have doubts that he was just randomly picked for the ritual, especially with all the slavery around. That man could buy any boy for that reason. I am for the Varys/Serras Blackfyre theory for many reasons: relationship with Illyrio, sudden great interest in basically foreign country (I mean if you would like to change the world begin with your homeland, where slavery and injustice is everywhere, especially when you were a part of that injustice and experienced it on your own skin), scheming to throw away the Targs and putting Aegon, (if the theory is right) your own nephew to the throne... That all make sense then. As for who and why made him a eunuch: it could be a random fanatic R'hallist (or whatever they are called), who just figured out that Varys was of royal blood and decided to use him for sacrifice. By the way, so far we've never seen red priests to actually hearing the voice answering their questions, they've got only visions. R+R=D is kind of strange. My questions exactly, but, aren't there some similarities between R'hallor and the god of the FM? I could be wrong, but I think the FM have become a cross between assassins for hire from a business perspective, but still quite the religious zealots. Also agree on R+R :stillsick:, though by the time of this posting, that theory has been put to rest. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
