He has a crush on crabs

Episode 2 opened with the crabs gently gnawing at their victim’s skin. On a beach in the Degrees of Stone, the Triarchy sows discord to the point of questioning the power of King Viserys I. Lord Corlys Velarion, camped by Steve Toussaint, also asks His Majesty to intervene as soon as possible to prevent this area from becoming a place of lawlessness. This is what will happen when the alliance of the free cities Lys, Myr and Tyrosh will set up tolls thus preventing anyone from crossing the strait without paying a tax.

This Myrian admiral is also called Gaveur-de-Crabes since he serves his victims as food for crabs and other crustaceans. They crucify them to abandon them near the shore. It is this cruelty, along with the greed of all the admirals of the Triarchy that sparks the unlikely alliance of Lord Corlys Velaryon and Prince Daemon Targaryen.

A common enemy

Things are brewing between the former heir and the one who wanted to provide a male one to the king. After Viserys’ refusal to marry the very young Laena Velaryon, Corlys seems to have lost faith in her sovereign. Now is the time for insubordination and betrayal. He will thus seek help from the man who was sentenced to exile six months ago.

Daemon Targaryen, who has granted himself the right to stay in Dragonstone, will obviously put his army (the former royal guard) at the service of Lord Velaryon. In exchange, the latter should help him regain his status as heir, while dismissing Rhaenyra Targaryen in the process. The two protagonists have an enemy in common, they should also join forces in the next episode. The first images of episode 3 also show a clash between their two armies and those of Craghas Drahar at the Stone Steps.

A mask

Note that it is still difficult to explain the presence of a mask on his face, while it is not mentioned in the works that his face is covered. On the other hand, we can imagine that he was mutilated, or perhaps he is suffering from Greyscale? These are obviously only guesses, the next episodes should tell us a lot more about his career.

See you next week to learn more about this mysterious character. House of the Dragon explores many aspects of the history of the Targaryens, the episodes of season 1 already promise to be rich in twists and turns. The good news is that their adventures should not stop at the end of this first burst of episodes, HBO has already announced the renewal of the series. Season 2 would also be on the right track.
