Sphinx: who is the Citadel’s secret student?

by birtanpublished on September 5, 2020

In the game of Thrones books lots of characters have secret identities like Sansa pretends to be Elaine Varys pretends to be rügen may not plum is actually Bloodraven who's also the three-eyed crow Robert strong is the mountain Griff is John Kahn young Griff

Is Aegon Targaryen who might actually be a Blackfyre the list goes on and on and one of the coolest of these sacred identities is aller s aller ass is a student at the Citadel in Old Town which is like the Westerosi University he's

Involved with Sam Tarly Marwin the mage and Jack and Hegar who seek secrets in the Citadel al-harazi minor character but he's got a secret of his own cuz he is actually a she she's sir Ellis and a bastard daughter

Of Oberyn Martell the most obvious evidence that a la raza relah is that the name alas is Sorella backwards but also we know that sir Ella's father is Oberyn Martell of Dorne and sir Ella's mother is a trader from

The Summer Isles aler ass is the same his mother is a trader from the Summer Isles and his father is a Dornishmen ala receivin looks like Oberyn they both have black eyes and black hair with a widow's peak at one point Alaris says I

Am no Lord's son which is true cuz she's actually a Lords daughter Alerus is always smiling as if he knows some secret jape and the evidence shows that his secret is that she is actually sir Ellis and so who is sarella in the show

Oberyn Martell has three daughters but in the books he has eight called the sand snakes serella is the fourth born now 19 years old in book four the three eldest sand snakes

Obara Nymeria and tyene want to start a war with the Lannisters to avenge the deaths of Oberyn and aren't Elia to prevent this war their uncle Doran arrests the snakes Oberyn MTN and the young ones are captured but Duran

Doesn't arrest serella because Sorella isn't in Dorne she's in Old Town as a laroz Duran says unless she returns to dawn there's not I can do about Sorella the her to her game so it doesn't sound like

Sirella is working with Duran or with the other sand snakes what is her game what's she doing in old town serella loves learning on a visit to some ruins serella turned over rocks brush sand of

Mosaics and wanted to know everything there was to know about the people who had lived there so maybe serella came to the Citadel University because she wants to learn stuff her father Oberyn did the same thing but the

Citadel doesn't accept women which must be wise Sorella disguises herself as a guy Alerus and allure a Stas well at the Citadel earning three links of his maesters chain in one year meaning she masters three subjects really fast and

She seems to care about the values of the Citadel telling lazy Leo that he shames the Citadel by being one of them also Nymeria mentions that Sirella loves the city of old town so Sorella is smart she

Wants to learn and she loves the Citadel and old town and that's probably why she's there but Sirella / Alerus / Zarrella wrasse gets involved in much more than just study at the start of book 4 Alerus practices archery with his

Golden heart bow which connects to his sama island a heritage he talks with his student friends about the rumors of the Dragon Queen Daenerys in the east and this guy Leo reveals that there's a glass candle burning in the chambers of

Marwan the mage a glass candle is a candle of obsidian and for centuries these candles have been impossible to light but now they burn again which shows that magic and Dragons have returned to the world old powers waken

Leah says shadows stir and Alerus is really interested in this talk of magic and Dragons so by the end of the book he becomes an ally of the guy with the candle Marwan Marwan is a rebel professor he travels to strange distant

Places studies with strange people like Qyburn and mary mazda and he writes books about prophecy he's an expert on magic but most maesters don't trust magic so they discredit Marwan Marwan claims there's a conspiracy by the

Maesters to suppress magic and Dragons what this video for more so marwan's a little crazy maybe but he totally knows things about magic and prophecy partly because he has this glass candle because glass

Candles let you see across distances and enter dreams Marwin uses his to watch and learn he sees Sam arrive at the Citadel so Marwan gets a Lara's to bring Sam to him and Sam tells them about his

Experiences at the wall with White Walkers and Melisandre and how maester aemon thinks Daenerys is azor Ahai the hero prophesied to save the world so Marwan leaves and heads east to meet Daenerys

This leaves Sam at the Citadel with al arrest and with a guy called paté who is actually the faceless assassin Jack and Hagar in disguise jaqen is there possibly to steal a book called the death of dragons go watch the jaqen

Video but also Sam has an old horn which is probably the Horn of winter which can destroy the wall also also there are Ironborn raiding around old town and year on Greyjoy's making an eldritch mass blood sacrifice nearby so there's a

Lot of intense magic shit converging on Old Town and Alerus seems connected our asses friends call him the Sphinx because a sphinx has the face of a human body of a lion and wings of a hawk it's made up of different parts just like

Allah wrasse is both Dornish and summer Islander but the Sphinx might also refer to a LaRosa's secret identity there are statues of sphinxes at the Citadel one male and one female which might hint at Sorella wrasses male

And female identities but the sphinx symbol goes even deeper because on the way to old town maester aemon tell Sam that the Sphinx is the riddle not the Riddler Sam wonders if alas the Sphinx is the Sphinx a maan meant maybe the

Idea is that allah wrath is not a Riddler who'll tell you a riddle ala ass is the riddle as in his secret identity as Sorella is the riddle but why would a maan talk about the secret identity of some minor character he's never met a

Mon mentions the Sphinx along with talk of dreams glass candles a and the three heads of the Dragon which seems to be the idea that three Dragon Riders will write Danny's three dragons Alerus also mentions the three heads of

The Dragon and he is involved with glass candles so maybe a la raza to this tug Aryan dragon stuff in book five Tyrion finds of Valyrian Sphinx a dragon queen with the head of a woman and body of a dragon she seems to be missing her King

A male half human half dragon if the female dragon Sphinx is Daenerys the male could be Jon Snow he's part dragon because he's half Targaryen and he's probably the rightful king of Westeros and he could be Danny's future husband

And he could be one of the three heads who rides a dragon Jon might be the Sphinx a Mon ment and this could link back to LRS if Alaris and sam uncovered Jon's true parentage of the Citadel like Sam and Gilly do in the show so the

Riddle of the Sphinx is still vague and confusing but it seems to connect John and Danny and the Targaryen dragons with Sorella wrath what does this mean for her future it looks like LRS will be Sam study

Buddy at the Citadel they might learn important secrets about White Walkers or a Zora hi or John's parentage but with Jack and Hagar around they might also get caught up in his plot to steal that dragon book Marwin and al-araf seem to

Want to support Daenerys but Allah asks could also become Danny's enemy because in book five Dany rejects a marriage alliance with Dawn and one of Danny's dragons kills sir Ella's cousin Quentin so maybe Sorella ass will use her

Archery skills to slay a dragon Jack uns book the death of Dragons might help at the same time Euron brings sorcery and destruction on Old Town we'll Sorella fight to protect the city she loves so like a sphinx Sorella ass is made of

Different parts she's a sand snake daughter of Oberyn Martell of Dorne but she's also a summer Islander with a golden heart bow she's a student of the Citadel with a love for Old Town and ties to Marwan and she also

Seems connected to the Targaryen Danny this complex combination of conflicting loves and loyalties define the Sphinx as one of the most interesting minor characters in the series thank you to the artists who
