I was thinking about Varys’ rise to power and how much of it was built on “little birdies” sending him little birdies. While he certainly is one of the most knowledgeable and influential people in the Seven Kingdoms, there is a price to be paid. How much time do you think this guy spends each week herding ravens? I’ll bet it’s considerable and that’s not even to mention another unfortunate byproduct, bird shit; all over his office. No doubt.
They say that information is power, but I’ll bet it smells a lot like digested worms and berries.
