Assumption: Facelessmen caused the Doom of Valyria
Proposition: The first facelessman was a Targaryen
The Alchemist’s presence in Oldtown, as well as the ‘FM caused the Doom’ theory have caused many readers to theorize that FM is anti-dragons, anti-Targaryen, and therefor they will send someone (Arya in many theories) to kill Dany and her dragons. In this post, I’ll attempt to claim that FM could be pro-Dany and pro-Targaryen. This is not new, but I haven’t read much on it.
My guesses regarding the whereabouts of the various characters MIA in the series.
Class I. Characters whose location I’m pretty certain
- Jaqen H’ghar – At Oldtown, disguised as Pate
- Sarella Sand – At Oldtown, disguised as Alleras the Sphinx
- Sandor Clegane – Quiet Isle
- Aurane Waters – The Stepstones
- Edric Storm – Lys
Class II. Characters whose location I can guess confidently
- Hot Pie – Inn of the Kneeling Man
- Howland Reed – At Greywater Watch
- Gendry – Inn at the Crossroads
Class III. Characters whose location I can guess with slightly less confidence than II
- Benjen Stark – North of the Wall.
- Mance Rayder – At Winterfell, alive.
- Galbart Glover – At Greywater Watch
- Maege Mormont – At Greywater Watch
- Podrick Payne – Hollow Hill or another BwB lair
- Hyle Hunt – Hollow Hill or another BwB lair
- Blackfish – River road, on way to Casterly Rock, waiting ambush Forley Prestor’s party
Class IV. Characters whose location I have a rough guess about
- Jaime Lannister – Hollow Hill or another BwB lair
- Brienne of Tarth – Hollow Hill or another BwB lair
- Marwin the Mage – On way to Meereen
- Stonesnake – With Benjen (he was with Qhorin and Jon, then went missing. Probably found Benjen but both of them got trapped the same way)
- Alliser Thorne – Lost, or plotting with Bolton men at Dreadfort to have Jon killed.
- Areo Hotah – Searching for the Darkstar with Obara Sand.
Class V. Characters whose location I have no clue about
- Gerion Lannister
- Tyrek Lannister – Probably somewhere under Varys’s custody
- Sheila Whent – Probably dead
- Gerold Darkstar Dayne – Probably somewhere in Dorne.
