Ellie Kendrick on the popular Meera-Jon theory and Tom Wlaschiha talks Jaqen

Digital Spy recently spoke with Ellie Kendrick, who we now know is set to return as Meera Reed in Game of Thrones season 6. During the interview, Ellie was aked about her own thoughts on the theory that Meera and Jon Snow are curly-haired siblings:

I genuinely don’t have any idea as we don’t get told anything! But, I don’t know. I think people might just be thinking that because we’ve both got curly hair. In the books, our characters are described quite differently.

Continuing, she seemed skeptical that such a twist would hold up in the intricate narrative that George R.R. Martin has woven.

Hey, I’d love it to be true because it would mean great things for my character, but I’m holding back on speculation for now. I think what’s been going on in George RR Martin’s brain is so much more a complex wormhole than we could possibly imagine. I think there’s definitely a mystery to Meera and Jojen and their parentage, but I think it’ll unwind itself eventually.

I can only dream. To be honest, I don’t think Meera would be all that good on the Iron Throne! She’s a little bit of a socialist at heart, I don’t think she’ll be able to rule with the iron fist that the throne requires.

When April 24th rolls around, I suppose we may find out whether or not this outlandish theory holds any truth, and if Ellie’s hair had anything to do with her casting.

Tom Wlaschiha also recently spoke with taz.de about the show. While he revealed nothing specific about the upcoming season, he did have the following to say about his approach to playing Jaqen H’ghar (apologies for the rough Google translation/paraphrasing):

Personally, I think you may not be smarter than the writer as an actor. You play what is written for you – no more and no less. The overall picture of the character grows in the viewer’s mind – Jaqen H’ghar’s especially due to his enigmatic nature. On the one hand he is a ruthless killer, and on the other he’s a likeable figure. It’s fun to play someone so ambivalent. The background of the character, for me, is not important at all. I leave the hardcore fans on the Internet to develop their own theories.

    1. I was especially intrigued by this quote “I think there’s definitely a mystery to Meera and Jojen and their parentage, but I think it’ll unwind itself eventually.”

      Beyond wanting to see Howland Reed, I want to find out exactly what impact the crannogmen will have on the wars to come. I’d think their connection with the CotF and their oaths to the Starks, made long, long ago, have to come into play at some point. They seem, at least in my mind, to have some connection to what’s happening north of the Wall. I don’t think it coincidence, nor necessarily just tied in with Ned and Howland’s past that Jojen and Meera are the ones to lead Bran to BR.

      Totally agree.

      I’m trying to remember from the books – we obviously know Howland Reed is their father, but is it mentioned who he married/who their mother is? (aside from the Jon/Meera twin theory, that is, which by the way I think is rubbish).

      Nymeria Warrior Queen,

      Me too. Meera and Jojen look so different from each other on the show, and I think the casting was not just a coincidence. I feel that their mother was not a simple crannogwoman.

      In the books, we don’t know if he survived. I feel this is the first confirmation I’ve had that he’s dead unless Natalie is lying, too. Does this mean he dies in the books, too? I wasn’t ready for this. I didn’t mourn him & now it feels like it’s too late even if there is a funeral. Even if he comes back to life exactly the same, I don’t want Jon Snow to die. If he comes back, he will definitely be a changed man though it might be subtle. Oh, I just remembered about Ghost. Nevermind…as long as he gets his body back.

    10. I like the Meera-Jon theory as a fun thought experiment but it is not likely to be anything more than that (the similarity in hair/looks is only a show thing). However, I do want to know why Howland Reed was so willing to send his only two offspring up north alone to embark on an exceptionally dangerous mission. I’d like to know Mr. Reed’s state of mind and possible game-changing secrets before the tale ends.

      It isn’t. Jojen dreamed it & hunted him down. The book version of Bran & the Reeds is so much better. I enjoyed their journey so much. One of my favorite scenes is the liddle cave. It makes me tear up. So much good stuff got cut out of the show. When I first read about the Liddle in a cave, I was convinced it was Beric in disguise. Why else would he have dozens of biscuits? After rereading the other day, it seemed those who were watching Bran & co probably set up the meeting in the cave by predicting they would seek shelter there & were prepared with fire & food.

    16. Meera is one character most would love to see have an impact on the way things play. If there is a connection to Bran through family ties, it’ll be a good thing. The Starks & The Reeds will be close families, I feel, and back through History too.
      Not sure about being Jon’s sibling though, and I see where the physical looks come in. As Ellie says, they are described differently in the books.

      Jaqen No One, Man of Mystery. Wonderful character, portrayed most excellently too. The more we think we know, the less we really do know. Curious – Hodor? H’ghar? Coincidentally similar sounding?

      No, season 7 scripts have to be completed by this spring (maybe around June? I can’t remember exactly). Highly doubt George will be done with Winds of Winter even close to that. Maybe later in the year, if we’re really lucky.

    18. I too am eager to find out much more about Howland, the crannogfolk, their ancient connections and so on. And I do like Meera very much as a character. I suppose that her being “a little bit of a socialist at heart” might have something to do with it!

      I also want desperately to visit the mysterious Isle of Faces. The greenseer blood among the Reeds would seem to point to Meera as the PoV who could take us there on some mission for Bran.

        Quote  Reply

    19. Selina,

      I think that it is more of a comment on how small a criterion similarity is when they cast siblings. The two characters are described as looking very similar in the books. That is easy to do in a book: all it requires is words. However, the probability of finding two adults that look enough alike that they can pass for siblings AND both act is vanishingly small. As such, show and movie casters usually do not bother getting closer than general ethnicity when casting family members.

      And that is what makes the idea doubly silly: if similarity was not a criterion when casting the Stark siblings (or any other TV or film siblings), then why would it be when casting “secret” siblings?

    26. Like so many others, I can’t wait for Howland Reed. I actually heard a theory for the first time today that Howland is the High Sparrow which made me laugh, but anyways, lol.
      I would like to find out why the Crannogmen didn’t come to Robb’s aid. Is there something I’ve missed in the books that already explained that?
      I agree that Jojen and Meera’s journey north if the wall was so much better in the books. Does anyone subscribe to the “Jojen Paste” theory btw? lol
      In regards to the Crannogmen’s allegience to the Stark’s, I find Meera and Jojen’s pledge wording to Bran very interesting that it mentions Ice and Fire. Does anyone know if there is any significance to it?

      “I swear it by earth and water.” — Jojen

      “I swear it by bronze and iron.” — Meera

      “We swear it by ice and fire.” — Both

      And no, I don’t believe Meera is Jon’s twin either. But do I believe Meera and Jojen are natural born siblings? That one I’m not so sure of.

      Well, if the “Jojen paste” theory comes true in TWOW, he got off easy, from a certain point of view —As far as the show is concerned, Jojen’s condition is way beyond paste! First he got stabbed to death and then blown up into thousands of charred bits. He’s probably no more than frozen ashes by now 😛

      That said, ritualistic cannibalism is certainly more morbid than Jojen’s fate in the show. Especially considering the subject was probably nonconsensual and the cannibal becomes so unwittingly. That’s pretty fucked up.

      The season seven scripts should be ready by the time season six is finished airing in July, at the latest. Do you seriously think GRRM will be able to deliver TWOW “well before” that? Well before that would be… right about now or in the next few months. To be honest, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the sixth book isn’t released before the seventh season premieres!

      I have just remembered something. When Bran’s gang are taken prisoners at Craster’s keep by NW deserters, the horrible “legend of Gin Alley” plays with Meera’s hair, saying he likes curly hair. Now I wonder whether there was something meant to point out to Meera’s hair to make us notice it.
      I have seen the show for many times, but I have read the books only once, so my memories linked to the show are more vivid.

    36. Henry Gordon,

      Meera is said to have long brown hair in the books, same as Jon. Her eyes however are green, same as Jojen. Whereas Jon has the grey eyes of the Starks. Only his eyes are much darker, that they almost look black. Plus, Meera in the books, is supposed to be short and slim, similar to other crannogmen. Basically the only thing common between Jon and Meera in the books is their age and maybe their hair, since both are described to have brown hair. I don’t think the twin theory is true though.

      I’ve always wondered the same thing. And if he was associated with Rorge and Biter beforehand? I know some theories are that they are Faceless Men as well but it seems that the whole deal with FM is that they are quiet unassuming assassins and those two are visually insane.
      There is another pretty far-fetched theory out there that Varys saved Ned by sneaking him out of the cells and replaced him with a FM for his public trial. Again, I can’t see a FM being used for that.
      I love how it seems that the longer the span is between the books, the crazier the theories seem to get, lol. But its great fun reading them.

      I don’t really support the Jaqen = Syrio theory. Even if we suppose Syrio was captured by Meryn F. Trant and not killed, then put in the Black Cells, surely someone would notice at some point that Syrio had “disappeared” and a new prisoner in the form of Jaqen had “appeared”? The timeline is a bit confused to as to when Jaqen, Rorge and Biter were released in to the care of Yoren and whether Ned was in the cells at the same time.

      It may not be at all important, but I think GRRM really doesn’t like loose ends and few things happen by pure chance in his world, so Jaqen must have had some purpose in KL. Whether we shall ever know….

      I’d rather believe the Syrio Forel theory, or, at least, I want it to be true. But about Rorge and Biter, I think it’s impossible. Don’t forget Arya killed Rorge in the show. And about Ned it’s even less believable.

    44. Shy Lady Dragon,

      Well this is not from the horses mouth but info from westeros.org

      In 2005, GRRM pointed out that Syrio seems to have been left in a hopeless situation when he was last seen, and suggested readers should “draw your own conclusions” based on this (SSM), which seems to imply that Syrio Forel was in fact killed. More recent reports (but, it should be said, unconfirmed) indicate GRRM does not understand why he gets asked the question repeatedly, pointing out that Syrio is not immortal; if accurate, this seems to more heavily imply that Syrio Forel is dead.

      Regarding Jaqen, if a very reasonable IMO theory is true relating to the prologue of ADWD, then Jaqen, while not a major character, seems to have a part to play in at least expanding some of the dragon lore/myth (how this will play out in the show must be different,with Jaqen in the HoB&W). I am sure that GRRM would have given him a back story that would explain his presence in KL, I just hope that that it might be revealed sometime.

      Ser Not Appearing In This Series,

      scififantasygirl,

      Regarding the Syrio=Jaqen theory, I don’t know if this proves or disproves anything, but in AFFC, when Jaime questions the gaoler after Tyrion’s escape from the black cells, he tells Jaime that it was Ned Stark who had given the three criminals in the black cells to the Night’s Watch. I remember this quite clearly as I am reading AFFC now. So unless the gaoler was making a mistake, it means that Jaqen was already in the black cells before Syrio had his showdown with Meryn Trant. Which would make it unlikely that they are the same person?

      Where’ve you been, Rygritte? Yes, D&D have been confirming that “Jon Snow is dead,” “deader than dead,” and “dead is dead” since the same night of the Season 5 finale, and all the actors have been toeing the line. I didn’t think he was truly dead, either, until I read from other readers here, way before the finale, that pretty much everyone assumed he was really and truly dead but had theories as to what could happen from there. With Melisandre apparating back to Castle Black at the last possible second, that seemed to confirm the strongest of those theories, as does the Jon-Snow-as-Christ-Crucified HBO teaser poster that does “give the game away a bit,” according to Meera. The stone will be rolled away, innit?

      I gotta disagree with you on that one, Wimsey. Yes, siblings aren’t cast to look so much alike generally, presumably because it’s so difficult. But the narrative / script establishes the familial relation. So instead of a perfect visual fit, you get dialogue and behavior that suggests it.

      On a reveal such as this, if this theory were true, it can’t come out of left field. That would seem cheap to viewers. So here visual similarity would be a borderline necessary function, along with a bit of foreshadowing. If somebody mentioned her hair a couple times at Craster’s Keep, it seems possible.

      I haven’t read the books anyway, so I don’t have a feel for if the theory is bonkers or viable, but I do think that (assuming it were true) exactly because it’s a secret sibling relationship, the resemblance would be important.

    51. I too have a tough time swallowing any sort of Jojen paste theory, yuppers, pun intended. I also never ever subscribed to the J + M twins theory. Not when I read the books, either time I read them – nor when I saw the series. There is always a chance that any or all of us could be wrong on this, but I wouldn’t bet any amount of cheddar on it.

      As to the questions on why Jaqen was arrested, in KL or got ordered to the NW……I have no clue but have always been curious about it. It seems a bit neatly tied together that he is the one that essentially becomes the reason for Arya to have a No One story at all, so I have been going on he is her story arc catalyst at this point.

      Syrio. I loved him and no, we didn’t see him actually die, but I do think he did, just as Shireen did and Stannis did. The Hound I think there is a huge probability that he is also pushin’ up daisies, but there is an extreme hope that he is “you know where, posing as you know who”.

      LOL. Lord love a duck, we need the season to start already. 8 weeks is a long time for more and more theories to sprout. *whisper mode* at least the LSH crowd seems to have finally settled down. 😉

      I’m not a believer, either, but I was following that train of thought. We could fix it:

      First comes love.
      Then comes marriage.
      Then come a prince we must disparage.
      For if folks knew his true worth,
      He would not live five weeks past birth.

      Hound is

      gravedigger

      : Yup
      Lyanna had twins: Maybe, but I doubt it. Ned’s POV or Dany’s HotU vision would hint more at it. “A blue rose grew from a chink in the wall”
      Jaqen is Syrio: Maybe. It isn’t that hard to believe. Syrio likely died, however. If Syrio was instead taken to the KL dungeon, then I could see him changing his face in there with nobody noticing. Gaolers likely weren’t very interested in taking roll call…

      Ser Not Appearing In This Series,

      scififantasygirl,

      Regarding the Syrio=Jaqen theory, I don’t know if this proves or disproves anything, but in AFFC, when Jaime questions the gaoler after Tyrion’s escape from the black cells, he tells Jaime that it was Ned Stark who had given the three criminals in the black cells to the Night’s Watch. I remember this quite clearly as I am reading AFFC now. So unless the gaoler was making a mistake, it means that Jaqen was already in the black cells before Syrio had his showdown with Meryn Trant. Which would make it unlikely that they are the same person?

      Good catch! I have a difficult time keeping things straight in my head as I read the books….time frames being one of those things. I have never in my life read such a large series filled with so much…..everything!

      Yet, Thenns. Thenns were enough, more cannibalism would be too far over the top, wouldn’t it?

      But Meera and Jon? Hmmm, (adjusting tin foil hat, moving antenna a bit, enticing cat to keep her tin hat on and not chase it around the house) – emphasis on curly hair on Meera, long curly hair on Jon plus emphasis on hair clause… everyone and their brother calling Jon pretty. Rewatch seasons 4 and 5, you’d be amazed at how many times Jon is called pretty. Could that be calling attention to the possibility of a “pretty girl” counterpart existing and we are being groomed to walk easily through that door? ooops, cat swatted off the tin hat, sneezed and stalked away, tail in the air. Guess that’s the answer to that.

    68. The Jon+Meera=twins theory is far from the most ridiculous one going around. At least it doesn’t posit anyone being an immortal vampire or a secret merman. Nor does it try to persuade us that someone as closely associated with the ways of the North and the Old Gods as the leader of the crannogfolk would be so convincing in his knowledge of the Seven that he could fool the pious masses and rise to the post of High Septon.

    69. Sister Kisser,

      Or maybe they just do the simple thing and just cut the whole paste thing out of the show like they did with plenty of other things from the books . If it was that important then they would have done it with Jojen,i see no other reason why they would do it with a different character.

    70. Firannion: so convincing in his knowledge of the Seven that he could fool the pious masses and rise to the post of High Septon

      Yeah, I don’t buy Howland Reed as HS. Not that I know anything much about either of them. It’s more of wanting Howland to be one of the truly good guys, like Ned was trying to be, rather than a crazed fanatic like the HS is becoming, allowing atrocities in the name of faith and justice. We already have enough loonies. I’m ready for some steadier characters, maybe with eccentricities, as I’m sure HR would have. Steady, fair, benevolent.

      They are introducing Randyll Tarly this season. We already know him to be such a tyrant that Sam cringed at even the thought of naming baby Sam after him. So, I hope Dickon is a fairer character, especially where Sam is concerned, and not just a copy of Randyll. I’m done with tyrants. I want Jon to get revenge and whip all the Northern Lords into fighting shape against the WW, but I also hope HE doesn’t become a tyrant. I need to believe that goodness can prevail, someplace, in some way, both in the fantasy world and the real one. and that’s not the tin hat talking

      Does anyone subscribe to the “Jojen Paste” theory btw? lol

      *waves hand* I do! First time I ever read the books, way before I ever googled ASOIAF Theories, I picked up two theories as I read. One was Sandor Clegane = Gravedigger; the other that Bran ate Jojen. Because this was my impression when I read the book, I completely believe it. The only thing I will slightly concede re Jojen Paste is that there is a possibility the COTF merely bled Jojen, and he’s still alive. But I’m 95% sure he is dead. Blood magic and the Weirwoods makes total sense – we see blood sacrifice under the trees in one of Bran’s visions after all.

        Quote  Reply

    73. thornofhighgarden: Neither Jon nor Meera were described as having curly hair in the books? At least, I don’t think?

      No, Jon’s hair is not described as curly, but neither is Meera’s. However, the two are described as looking very different from one another in the books. Jon has very dark brown hair, and eyes that are almost black in color. Meera is described as looking much like Jojen, and both are described as hair the same color as light brown things and also has having eyes that are a “mossy” green.

      Meera and Jojen also are supposed to be very short: they basically are only a little taller than Bran is when they meet, even though they both are a bit older than Bran.

      Roberta Baratheon: Jojen paste NOOOO, the paste was made from Weirwood which has red sap!!!

      And yet Jojen pointedly stressed that Bran was not the one who needed to be afraid of what was coming! Remember, Jojen knows when he is going to die. The fact that they also killed him on the show makes this conjecture a fairly parsimonious one.

      Thronetender: Yeah, I don’t buy Howland Reed as HS.

      Someone posted the putative evidence for this idea here once. What was astounding is that all of it was either imagined (details about the High Sparrow’s physical appearance, place of origin, etc. that never are given in the books) or flatout wrong (the Sparrow being pro-Stark). About the only thing in common is that the Sparrow is described as being small: which, of course, most of the “smallfolk” would be relative to the nobility because of differences in nutrition! Even then, we are not told if he is as small as a crannogman.

      Supposedly the motivation for the idea is that Jon has to be King of Westeros to fulfill the Azor Ahai prophecy, and that a High Septon knowing Jon’s true parents could proclaim him as such and have Jon accepted as King. Of course, from what little we know of the Prophecy, AA simply has to be proclaimed king: King Beyond the Wall or King Crow would do just as well. Moreover, this High Septon already has burned enough bridges with the most relevant nobility (Tyrells and Lannisters) that his pronouncements would mean next to nothing! (Besides, the HS comes across as more Robespierre than Duke of Perth!)

      Plus it would be a stretch for HR to convert to the Faith of the Seven considering how close the Crannogmen are to the old Gods and even Children of the Forest. And the amount of time and dedication it took for the HS to become what he has. There just seems to be too much going against the theory.

    75. Wimsey,

      And what about age? Ned and Howland were close to the same age. The HS is clearly older. Now yes, its said that Howland may have some skill with spells which may give him an ability to alter his image but again, it’s a large stretch.

When Ygritte nods ‘yes’ that she does love Jon, he tells her, “You won’t love him so much when you find out what he really is.”

      What do you think he means by “…what he really is.”? And, why does this warg think what Jon “…really is.” relevant to his current good looks?

      The wildlings generally being distrustful of Jon, I think the warg meant Jon was a potential traitor. I remember that, when I first saw that scene, I thought he recognized Jon’s warging powers. Then I changed my mind, because that wouldn’t be a good reason for the warg to blame him. And why wouldn’t Ygritte love a warg, if Jon happened to be one? Imo Jon’s good looks are not connected to anything. The warg only wanted Ygritte, was jealous of Jon and bitter because Jon was more handsome than him.

    111. Anon,

      I can’t recall how clearly this is implied in the show, but in the books Orell is jealous of Jon because he has long desired Ygritte and she has consistently rejected him. That hatred feeds his suspicion that Jon will always be a Crow and end up betraying them. So in this context ‘what he really is’ could just mean a spy. But there is also an implication that one skinchanger can sense another who has the ability.

    112. Firannion,

      Ok. I thought it might have to do with warging ability.

      It may be that whole conversation was just to illustrate one thing: Ygritte loves Jon. Ygritte is desired by other men of her ‘kind’, but chooses Jon.

      So, they’ve shown us that Jon is lovable and desirable. But, I think we already knew Jon was a pretty lad and that girls would love him. Why use up real estate to illustrate something we already knew.

      I don’t really have any channels 🙂 Haven’t paid for cable since… College. Go figure. 2 tvs in the house and no cable. I like it that way. As for GoT, I buy the blue rays and always watch with friends or family with HBO.

      To me Jamie would be bang-able only if it weren’t for the creepiness of him doing his sister all those years.

      How come nobody says Ser Davos? Poor guy gets no love. What’s wrong peeps, is he too old for ya?

      In real world terms, yeah, the brother sister thing is super creepy. In context of the story though, it’s easier to digest. Maybe because there are so many instances of incest that we have become sanitised to it 🙂 . Besides, he was always faithful to Cersei. Even Davos, who would otherwise be good husband material, has cheated on his wife quite a few times. Fidelity is important to me!

    117. ghost of winterfell,

      Ah. Did not know this about Mr. Seaworth. And he seemed to have such a code of honor… Well, Jamie is cuter and yeah at least he is faithful. But unfortunately a vibe I get from him is that he wouldn’t smell all that great. I don’t know why lol! Just in character not out. Jon looks like he smells masculine and musky but Jaimie seems like would be a fresh seawater fish odor, and Jorah makes me think of faint hint of dirty socks or something 🙂

    118. ygritte,

      Very interesting, attaching a smell to a character never occurred to me. I like Jaime as a person too, he has travelled a long way since “the things I do for love”. And Cersei being the only woman he has even been with is touching – unbeliavable though for a hansome, rich young man! I completely forgot that Davos was unfaithful to his wife. Still, I think he is a trustworthy, good man. But I also like Jorah – maybe I’ll choose Davos before Jorah because of the lattest getting greyscale (in the show only), how selfish of me!

      I was being silly 🙂 It’s been one of those days, kind of slap-happy for some reason. But now that I re-read it I kinda DO feel that connotation with Jorah. I thought him attractive in a rugged older man kinda way in the first season or two but lately he just comes across as bitter and down in the mouth all the time.

      Just for fun I’m going to name some characters and in one or two words you ascribe a smell to them/or whatever comes to mind. Game? Here’s mine:

      Dany=Apples
      Ramsay=Sweat
      Samwell=Tuna
      Arya=daffodils
      Sansa=roses
      Theon=dust
      Walder=pickles

    120. ygritte,

      I have no idea what I’m doing, but what the Seven Hells!
      Dany=lilac
      Ramsey=hair burning
      Sam=goulash (it’s a delicious variety of Hungarian dishes resembling stew, my favourite one has onions, beef, paprika, caraway seeds, peppers, sour cabbage and cream – what a good idea, I should cook some)
      Arya=violets (she may be a child assassin, but I still see her as innocent)
      Sansa=lilies-of-the-valley
      Theon=salmon
      Walder Frey=corpse (I love pickles, I often have them with chicken or turkey)
      Jorah=old leather
      Davos=sea+spring onions 🙂
      Jon=fir-tree
      Oberyn=the muskiest musk
      Jaime=I’ll think of something sexy enough and I’ll come back 🙂

      OMG I love it. Sam and Ramsay Hahaha. The one so random and the other so very thorough! I’ll read more in depth later today, need to get some much needed sleep. Developed a bad headache awhile ago. That swollen feeling, throbbing kind 🙁 G’night my favorite watcher on the wall!

      I’m really sorry that I won’t be able to go with you to London, it would have been such fun! Can you imagine we still haven’t got the dates for those effing symposiums? I think that’s my boss’s way of keeping us on our toes.
      The goulash smell was not a random choice, I think Sam, judging by his size, would appreciate good food. And for Jaime I choose the finest pipe tobacco, I’d certainly like a pipe smoker. Well, in Romania smoking in public places will be prohibited in a month or so, people won’t smell tobacco any longer!

      Marry – nope, been there, done that. In no hurry to do again.

      Kill: Thorne. Ramsay’s going to get it from someone anyway.

      Jon will probably go against the Night’s King eventually, or Dany will fly in. Thorne needs it, and I don’t think Jon will do it. I think Jon will just ride away from all of them in a disgusted huff.

      Thorne needs it. Too much bile for too long.

      I don’t support Syrio/Jaqen theory either. They are completely different and Jaqen was already in Black Cells when Syrio trained Arya. Besides Syrio was just a simple decent guy hired to train her fencing. Jaqen is on a whole different level. Dangerous and mysterious.
