Valar Friendzonis: Jorah Mormont facts worth your time
The Lord of Friendzone, Jorah Mormont is perhaps the most relatable of all the surviving Game of Thrones characters. He was a Northern Lord who lost his inheritance for indulging in slave-trade and was exiled. Since then, he has been with Daenerys, helping her at every step of her ascent, while repeatedly getting friend-zoned. Here are some facts about Ser Jorah you should know.
The only reason he got into slave trading (that led to his eventual exile) was his wife, Lynesse Hightower and her growing materialistic demands. The worst part, she eventually ran off with some rich guy. Even worse, the 45-year-old Jorah met Daenerys, who was 15 in the books and fell in love with her. Thankfully, she friend-zoned him on every occasion.
While going to Meereen through Valyria with Tyrion Lannister, Jorah was attacked by the 'Stone Men' and contracted greyscale, a fatal disease that turns the skin scaly and stone-like, causing the diseased to die in prolonged agony. He did not give up hope and was eventually cured by Samwell Tarly in Season 7. Jorah made a full recovery and is still by Dany's side.
As per GoT Fandom, "The Stone Men are people severely afflicted with greyscale. They are called "Stone Men" because the disease makes their skin dead, hard and cracked like a stone. Stone Men are often shunned from society; exiled to the ruins of cities."
Longclaw is the ancestral Valyrian Steel sword of the Mormonts and was supposed to be passed on to Jorah. His father Jeor Mormont gave it to Jon Snow since Jorah brought shame to their house. It has been with Jon since then. In Season 7, he tried to return it to Jorah, but he refused to accept it, saying he doesn't deserve the honor.
"It's my father's sword, and his father before him. The Mormonts have carried it for five centuries. It was meant for my son, Jorah. He brought dishonor to our House, but he had the grace to leave the sword before he fled from Westeros."
It is highly unlikely but with GoT, you never know. Azor Ahai ended the reign of the White Walkers thousands of years ago with his Valyrian Steel sword. Jorah, as per one preview, might get his own Valyrian Steel sword. Another similarity, Azor captured a lion, while Jorah captures Tyrion (Lannisters signify lions). What if Jorah's the prince that was promised? Crazy!
