George R.R. Martin once described Beric Dondarrion as “a wight animated by fire”



George R. R. Martin reveals that Beric Dondarrion is a "wight animated by fire"

Beric Dondarrion is the only character in Game of Thrones who is cool enough to have a flaming sword and has been resurrected several times. For a long time, fans have been enthralled by the prospect of being resurrected from the dead. George R. R. Martin, the author of the novel series, alluded to how the process works once.

Beric Dondarrion is a wight

Martin once talked about Beric’s resurrection in an interview with Time:


“Poor Beric Dondarrion, who was set up as the foreshadowing of all this, every time he’s a little less Beric. His memories are fading, he’s got all these scars, he’s becoming more and more physically hideous, because he’s not a living human being anymore. His heart isn’t beating, his blood isn’t flowing in his veins, he’s a wight, but a wight animated by fire instead of by ice, now we’re getting back to the whole fire and ice thing.”

George R. R. Martin is very proud of his female characters

Martin said in the same interview, “I’m very proud of the creation of Arya and Catelyn and Sansa and Brienne and Daenerys and Cersei and all of them. It’s one of the things that gives me the most satisfaction, that they’ve been so well-received as characters, especially by women readers who are often not served.”
