Slaver's BayEdit

I'm a bit confused; did the books go into detail about the religion of Slaver's Bay? That is, are the Graces some sort of distinct temple-prostitute religion? I thought that was just their local form of the Lord of Light religion. Is there any presence of the Lord of Light religion in Slaver's Bay?

While I'm on the subject, did we ever find out anything about religion in Qarth?--The Dragon Demands (talk) 21:11, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

No mention whatsoever of "local" Qartheen faith. The Graces are priestesses of the local Ghiscari gods (plural), while the Lord of Light's religion comes from Asshai. Graces perform different functions depending on "color":

  • Green Grace: akin to the High Septon. There's one in Mereen and one in Astapor, presumably one in Yunkai and another in New Ghis.
  • Blue Graces: Healers.
  • Red Graces: Cult prostitutes.
  • White Graces: Young girls of noble birth too young for the pleasure palaces.
  • Pink Graces: unknown specialty.

If you are unsure of something, instead of writing down your speculations you should take a look at the books or the ASoIaF wiki, or the forums. In any event, within the show there has been little mention of Slaver's Bay, and none whatsoever regarding the region's religion.--Gonzalo84 (talk) 03:07, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

I did check AWOIAF, but was still uncertain. Do they have the Lord of Light at all in Slaver's Bay? Surprising that the Ghiscari gods are still worshiped. Either way we'll get to this in season 3.--The Dragon Demands (talk) 04:38, August 25, 2012 (UTC)
