Harwin's appearance

I've seen it appear on Harwin's wiki page a few times, and I've thus removed it a few times already, but to be sure, I'll adress it here as well: Nowhere is it stated that Harwin had a pug nose, or brown hair. I've searched The Rogue Prince several times, and it is nowhere in there. The only ones described as having brown hair and a pug nose, are Rhaenyra's three eldest children. Now, I know that it's easy to assume that Rhaenyra's three eldest children are not Laenor's, but Harwins, but it isn't confirmed anywhere, and thus, we cannot state it as fact.

What a lot of people seem to be forgetting, is that even though Rhaenyra and Laenor both had the typical Valyrian looks, that doesn't mean that Rhaenyra's children cannot have been Laenor's. Laenor had Baratheon blood (and Baratheons are known for their dark hair), while Rhaenyra had Arryn blood (and Arryns are known for having brown/dark hair). It would be irony that Rhaenyra just had bad luck in the gene department three times in a row, and passed on Arryn genes whilst Laenor passed on Baratheon genes, but it is a possibility.

To conclude: until anywhere in the books it is specifically stated that Harwin had brown eyes and a pug nose, this kind of info on his appearance should not be on his wikipage. --Rhaenys_Targaryen 12:26, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Rhaenyra's children controversy

Similar to Cersei's blond children, can we agree that Rhaenyra's kids are all Harwin's? The Rogue Prince tells us their hair and eyes are all brown.

we can't be certain. Their looks don't say everything. Rhaenyra had Arryn ancestory, for example, and Robert Arryn had brown hair just like Rhaenyra's three kids. It could be unfortunate that Rhaenyra passed on her Arryn genes dominantly to her three eldest. We just can't be sure. --Rhaenys_Targaryen 08:13, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
