Game of Thrones: Interesting facts and theories about Bran Stark
Among the most crucial characters of Game of Thrones, Bran Stark might be a key player in the upcoming war against the White Walkers. He started as a young boy who saw something he wasn't supposed to see, and was crippled. A few seasons later, he's the new three-eyed-raven and a man of mystical magic. Here are some facts about the second youngest Stark.
His magical abilities have grown exponentially in little time
In Season 1, Bran saw the Lannister siblings having sex. To protect their secret, Jaime Lannister pushed him off a building and he lost his legs. Over time, a three-eyed-raven helped him travel across lands and awaken his magical abilities. Bran can now warg (transfer his conscience into others), look back in time, and observe everything happening even in farthest lands.
He might be the reason for everything that's happening
We know Bran can observe back in time. As seen in a scene with a young Ned, he can also make his presence felt, albeit faintly. In his visions, he has seen the reign of the Mad King. Theories suggest that Bran's (accidental) whispering in his ears became the reason of the downfall of Targaryens that caused a chain-reaction leading to the current events.
Is the young boy actually the progenitor of the Starks?
This is one crazy theory about his powers that surprisingly makes some sense. Thousands of years ago, Bran the Builder founded House Stark. We know nothing about him. What we have seen though, is that the present Bran can warg into humans in a different time. What if he warged into the past Bran and made him build the wall? Time travel is confusing!
Bran might be able to change the past
Some say he's the bridge between men and Walkers, others say he's the Night King, and some say that he's Azor Ahai, the prince who was promised. Bran stark might or might not be the above, but he might be the key to win against the Walkers. Theories suggest that he'll travel back in time to change the past and make everything right again.
