Talk: Duncan the Tall

From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Jump to: navigation, search


The character is referred to as Dunk only within his Dunk and Egg POV stories. He is called Duncan in AFFC and both Duncan and Duncan the Tall in TWOIAF. Since the article is written from a historical perspective (wiki depicts A Game of Thrones-Prologue as the present), shouldn't this article be moved to Duncan or Duncan the Tall?

Sun-streaked hair

It's my understanding that "sun-streaked" means hair that turns light in the sun, implying he really has dark hair. In addition the "thick mop" refers to his hair being sweaty from the heat during the summer drought in TSS and TMK. Thus it doesn't seem very accurate to open the appearance section with "has a thick mass of sun-streaked hair" considering he only appears this way at a specific time and not in THK. --Potsk (talk) 12:26, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

You are correct about the sun-streaked, good catch. The thick mop however is something i only know as a expresion for really thick hair mostly ammassed at the top of the head, so as far as i know the thick mass part of the description is correct. --Direpupy
"Dunk pushed his fingers through his mop of sun-streaked hair"-TSS; "ran wet fingers through his thick mop of sun-streaked hair"-TMK. A "mop" of hair generally refers to thick, shaggy or unruly hair. As Dunk finger-combs his hair, and it's also occasionally called "tangled" and that he has to push it out of his eyes, I'm going with shaggy. TSS and TMK take place in the summer, so that's how I'm qualifying the "sun-streaked" part. Feel free to edit otherwise. --Mindset (talk) 20:17, 27 January 2023 (UTC)
