Who is the Prisoner?

Since the Detective Inspectors was released I’ve gotten a question over and over, who is the prisoner? Below is an excerpt of his introduction in Book 4.

The room was dark and dank, a musty smell permeating the air. A small barred window sat open, wind and rain whipping in from the storm outside. A single bed lay against the far wall, the broken form of a First Kind lay sprawled where the Gremlin had left him.

“What is this place?” Jess sniffed and raised her hand to her face covering her nose.

“My home.” The voice was more like the growl of an animal than a man.

I flicked out my energy whip, prepared to confront the prisoner.

A man leaned against the wall behind us, long scraggily hair hanging down past his shoulders and around his bowed head concealing his face. He was thin and wore nothing more than a pair of loose cotton pants covered in dirt. He raised his head; his face was gaunt, the lower half covered by a thick beard. His eyes were a piercing gold color, and focused intently on me, almost as if he looked straight through me.

“Who are you?” I asked.

“A prisoner like most.” He lifted his arms, elbows to wrists covered with thick manacles. “And you are most certainly not HVO.”

Fans have been clamoring for information about this man and how he might fit into the saga. Well it is safe to say you have not seen the last of the prisoner. He is important and I’ve heard many theories about just who he might be. I did leave a few clues in the book and I’ve heard some great ideas on who it might be.

The question has also been raised if he connects with any of the Skeleton Key Guild spoilers. I would have to say that he is connected to everything. Now the real question is for the fans who is the prisoner? Let me know your thoughts below.
