    I've just finished A Feast for Crows and theres one main question thats stuck in my head.

    Spoilers for AFfC follow:




    When Cersei is imprisoned and considering her options, Qyburn visits her and tells her she should consider trial by battle and that she has the perfect champion to fight for her. She laughs and says that the gods are cruel because she has a champion that no man can possibly beat, but she's forbidden to use him because he's not in the Kingsguard.

    Does anyone have any idea who she could be talking about? Did I miss something or hasn't it even been hinted at yet?

    Also earlier in the book someone mentions to her that they have the perfect person to act as Hand when the next one dies, she warns them that if they fail her she could become rather unpleasant to which he (it was either Qyburn or Waters) says that they're biding their time. Any idea who that could be? Are the champion and the possible Hand the same person?

    Golem ;)
    It's the thing Qyburn had been working on and that was the reason why he needed all those people for his experiments...
    That's what i think at least.

    Ah of course. That makes perfect sense.

    Qyburn is a necromancer, he's been experimenting on Gregors body, he asked earlier for a suit of armor that was too heavy for any man to wear.

    It all makes sense now.

    Yep. Gregolem as we like to call him. :)

    As far as the next Hand...I have no idea.

    I prefere the name Qyborg for Qyburns creation.
    Could you give us a reference to that hand comment... What chapter is it in.

    I remembered the conversation wrongly. Cersei is talking to Qyburn about how if Loras dies they'll need a new member for the Kingsguard. Qyburn mentions that the person he has in mind will be unbeatable and that people are certain to sing songs of him.
    So they must be talking about Qyburns monster there too.
