Aeron Greyjoy (The Damphair)
This image will be part of my upcoming Iron Islands map.
ARTIST’S NOTE: The model for this towering prophetic figure was my best friend Henryk. I was finished with the lineart, when I realized that Damphair had a beard that reaches down to his waist. I had to prolong the facial hair of my friend so that he has become almost unrecognizable. I’m truly sorry about that, but hey, Henryk, that’s what friends are for, right?
Aeron Greyjoy is the youngest surviving son of the late Lord Quellon Greyjoy and Lady Sunderly, and is a younger brother of Balon Greyjoy, Lord of the Iron Islands. As a result of a near-death experience during Greyjoy’s Rebellion, Aeron became a priest of the Drowned God, and is now called the Damphair because of his wet hair.
Aeron is tall and thin with fierce black eyes and a beak of a nose, but shorter than his elder brother Victarion. Aeron garbs himself in roughspun wool robes dyed in the green, grey, and blue of the Drowned God. The sour-faced Aeron never cuts his hair and beard, which falls to his waist and has seaweed woven into it. He carries a waterskin filled with seawater, which he uses to bless those who desire it.
Aeron was once an amiable man, fond of songs, ale, and women. Aeron’s transformation has made him devoutly devoted to the god in his watery halls, however. He is now a dour, humorless man who views every breath as a gift that is wasted if it is not used to extol the virtues of following the Drowned God’s path.
Aeron considers himself a prophet who can hear the Drowned God. He attributes discord in the Iron Islands to the hated Storm God. Aeron sometimes swallows salt water to strength his faith.
