So we know he is High Lord of House Ix. But is that all there is to him? There is obviously more to his story. So let's start off with a few theories I have.
1. First Blood of the Deathless: I believe this means he is the first ever child of a Deathless. He gained his immortality by killing his father/mother, whichever was Deathless. If I'm not mistaken that's how the children become immortal. It's been a while since I read Awakening.
2. High Lord of House Ix: If Deathless usually don't have children, why would then have a house. Usually house refers to the family name. Such as the House of Wettin. There are other examples of this. Anyway, I think that House Ix is the Castle the Vault of Tears is located.
3. His name: He is named Thane. Thegn, or Thane, is a titled given to people.4. This isn't really a theory but I wanted to know what you thought. I was looking through the .ipa of Infinity Blade. I noticed a file that had the name Thane on it. When I opened it up in Gildor's umodel I noticed it was the Dark Knight. The one that you fight right before Raidriar. I thought it was neat. I don't know if they developed Thane's character from that or it is just a title. I highly doubt there is a link between the two. However, it would be neat if The Dark Knight was a Deathless.Originally Posted by From Wikipedia. That's right. Wikipedia. :P
So what are your thoughts? Sorry if anything I wrote was to difficult to understand. Also sorry for any misspellings or false info. If you see any please let me know so I can correct it. Also, apologies if any of this has been posted before. I couldn't find anything while searching. Thane is probably my most favorite character despite him not being much of a challenge.
