Game of Thrones- Lord Varys
‘Lord Varys, the master of Whisperers and a councillor of small council at the King’s landing.’
‘I ain’t a lord, so don’t address me as a lord.’
A small boy from Myr, whose master sold him to a sorcerer for gold and the sorcerer, performed his rituals by cutting him, only to hear voices.
Bloodied kid (Varys) was thrown into the streets to die.
“Some doors close forever, others open in most unexpected places.”
Varys determined to live by doing anything. He did every possible and impossible thing to save his life. He started selling his remaining parts for the sexual use. He became perfect in stealing things.
One day, young Varys realised a whisper could be used as a weapon on time and sometimes whisper could make you rich.
He became “the master of whisperer”.
“I am the master of whisperers. My role is to be sly, obsequious, and without scruples.”
After becoming the spider, his name flew through the streets of free cities to slums and then landed on the chair of small council at Kings’s landing.
“The birds sing in the west, the birds sing in the east, if one knows how to listen to it.”
He plays with words and stories. He does what a situation wants from him. He is not a manipulator but he is a player fast enough to play against his enemies.
He knew Ned stark was falsely convicted and caged in the cell.
He went up to him and offered him water and he also told him that he couldn’t do anything for Ned because kings guards had swords in their hands and I didn’t want to lose my head.
He believes in taking revenge but he also knows that a man should be patient enough while making any move.
“Influence grows like a weed. I tended mine patiently.”
He left king’s landing with Tyrion Lannister while saving him after the murder of Tywin Lannister.
He had the idea where to go at the time of distress- To Daenerys Targaryen.
He said what- “I serve the realm.”
Whosoever comes to power, Lord Varys will flow with the power because for him power resides where men believe it resides.
He was with Targaryen then after Robert’s rebellion, he came with him and then after the death of Ned Stark and Robert Baratheon, he started his council work with King Joffrey and King’s hand Tywin.
“Storms come and go, big fishes eat little fishes and I keep on paddling.”
I believe he is not what he shows himself in front of the people. He will surely have a big agenda in his mind. I cannot say he doesn’t have any infliction towards iron throne or he never wanted to sit on iron Throne.
We will get to know things when the time will come.
“Patience is a key to everything.”
