R’hllor and The Lord of Light Revealed

R’hllor and The Lord of Light are not one and the same.

Melissandre looked into her flames:

A face took shape within the hearth. Stannis? she thought, for just a moment … but no, these were not his features. A wooden face, corpse white. Was this the enemy? A thousand red eyes floated in the rising flames. He sees me. Beside him, a boy with a wolf’s face threw back his head and howled.

The red priestess shuddered. Blood trickled down her thigh, black and smoking. The fire was inside her, an agony, an ecstasy, filling her, searing her, transforming her. Shimmers of heat traced patterns on her skin, insistent as a lover’s hand.

Strange voices called to her from days long past. “Melony,” she heard a woman cry. A man’s voice called, “Lot Seven.” She was weeping, and her tears were flame. And still she drank it in.

Her gut reaction was right this was the enemy. Bloodraven is The Bloodfather, He may even literally be Melissandre’s bloodfather as has biological father with Shiera Seastar.

But it is all far worse than that.

She was stronger at the Wall, stronger even than in Asshai. Her every word and gesture was more potent, and she could do things that she had never done before. Such shadows as I bring forth here will be terrible, and no creature of the dark will stand before them. With such sorceries at her command, she should soon have no more need of the feeble tricks of alchemists and pyromancers.

The reason her power was stronger at The Wall is because she is closer to “R’hllor”.

  1. Some thoughts about this:

    Melisandre could be more powerfull not to be near of BR, but for being on top of the Wall itself, because still unknown magic is in it, but a kind of magic that blocks some kind of magic. Remenber: the brighter the light is, the deeper is the shadows it cast. A great wall gathering light for one side, bringing a great shadow in the opposite side.
    Other explanation is that the power of the light is becoming greater while events in Meereen suceed. The war in Meereen is, in essence a great giant orgy of blood and fire sacrifices, and the dragons are becoming bigger and stronger. But Mel doesn’t know why her power are becoming greater.

    I doubt BR can manipulate fire, he has his own weirwood.net, as Mel and other Red Priest are using their own standard of communications, the glass_candle.flames 😀

    I think there must be and opposite character to BR, I’m think would be Quaithe, as she is, in some way, manipulating Danny, like Mel manipulates Stannis, or Baelish and Varys manipulates Kings Landing events, but Quaithe is a sort of BR of the light.

    BR (the dragon that doesn’t cast shadows ) said to Bran that Weirwood’s root goes deep on the ground to be in the dark, but they feed in the blood. Blood is a vehicle of magic. Thats why Mel likes to burn people, avoiding to feed the ground. The many deaths are in the North, near weirwoods forest, the greater the power is in the dark side. That’s why the Old Gods are not so powerfull in the south, and that’s the reason of the bad luck of the Starks outside the North. A Stark is only safe in the North, where there are ww.


    • I love the observation that BR casts no shadow as he is inside the tree in darkness.

      I have a post on him coming up in the next few weeks. We don’t know where he starts and the tree ends. He may not be the puppetmaster, but instead himself being a puppet of another.

      Kill the boy Jon. Kill the Children of God.

  4. I would like to bring your atenttion to another character in ASoIaF/GoT….Ser Arthur Dayne. In early references Lucifer is referred to not only as the “bringer of the dawn” but also as the Morning Star or the “Star of the Morning.” Arthur Dayne is referred to as the “Sword of the Morning” and he bears a sword called Dawn.
    House Dayne’s sigil is a sword (presumed to be Dawn itself) with a COMET FALLING FROM THE SKY in the background. House Dayne’s seat is the castle STARFALL which is said to be built on the site of a comet’s impact crater. House Dayne lore says Dawn was forged from the meteoric metal they recovered from that comet/meteor.
