Scandinavian tales and creatures

Havsmannen (the man of the sea) is a handsome young man who can be found wandering along shores in misty weather. He would seek out a lonely sailor’s wife and transform himself into her husband, which often resulted in the wife giving birth to a green-skinned child with gills and fin-like feet. As an apology, Havsmannen would give the sailor good winds and calm seas, ensuring that his boat never ran aground.

knightofphoenix replied to your link “Lawful Evil”

Do you think he solely condemns people based on social rank? He’s definitely a “conservative” in the context of Westeros, but at the same time I don’t think he’d condemn other social ranks as long as they “know their place.”

But Tywin is operating under his own twisted belief system that a Lannister is “worth more,” so isn’t that a natural ranking system in his mind? Lannisters are better than non-Lannisters to him. And then you have the social hierarchy of Westeros, which for the majority of Tywin’s life (from his POV) was (simplified):

Targaryens —> Lannisters —> other nobility of various ranks —> knights of various ranks —> [skilled craftsmen ?? / goldsmiths ?? (is there an emerging middle class of skilled tradesmen in Westeros, idk, this is a discussion for a different post, hence the questioning brackets)] —> peasants

So perhaps condemn is too strong a word, but there is a prejudice based on social rank imo.

(Note that it was a post I copy/pasted from a website for the information describing “Lawful Evil” types. My point was “Tywin fits very well in this category,” rather than “Every single detail here is exactly Tywin to a T.”)

I’d say it’s both. Making sure Tommen is okay (not poisoned etc. - which is caring in my opinion XD), and then Tommen uses him as a sort of shield.

It is caring, as I said previously. I just don’t think it’s “grandfatherly” / affectionate caring. More, “I care that you are ok” after the fashion of a bodyguard imo.

Tywin didn’t act based on “emotions” (his or others’), he just wanted to make sure Tommen is okay.

Yes, I agree!

Re the question of the appearance of “shielding” — I think Tommen was just hugging him, holding on and hiding his face? And Tywin is perhaps comforting him, a bit, it looks like he’s patting his shoulder or something.

Yes! I think this is in agreement with what Tywin does in the books, like when he touches Cersei’s shoulder:

“The boy is gone, Cersei,” Lord Tywin said. He put his gloved hand on his daughter’s shoulder as one of his guardsmen shooed away the dog. “Unhand him now. Let him go.” She did not hear.

Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.

THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.

The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.

Aegon’s interest in Westeros long predated the events that drove him to war.  As well, there are reliable reports of Aegon and his sister Visenya visiting the Citadel of Oldtown in their youth, and hawking on the Arbor as guests of Lord Redwyne.  He may have visited Lannisport as well; accounts differ.

GRRM, if you don’t show me Lannisport, I will murder someone

Keep your heart from your chest; it’ll be gone, just like the rest; ‘cause it’s a man’s world, say all the right words, and hold your heart from your chest [x]
