Lorcas the Learned
|Alias||Lorcas the Learned|
|Died||In 48 AC, outside Oldtown|
Appearance and Character
Following the death of Septon Moon, Lorcas became one of his would-be successors. He conflicted with Rob the Starvling over the possession of Septon Moon's corpse. Lorcas claimed to have had a vision that Moon would deliver Oldtown to his followers, even after his death. Lorcas seized Moon's body from Rob the Starvling, and strapped it atop a destrier (still naked, bloody, and rotting), to storm the gates of the city. Fewer than a hundred men joined the attack, and most were shot before they even got close to Oldtown's walls. Lorcas was among the few who did reach the walls, and died after being doused with boiling oil or set on fire with burning pitch.
