Also, we never got to know much about "Ra's." Ducard got the development while training Bruce. So the twist doesn't hurt the character of Ra's at all, considering he was actually being developed prior to the reveal.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
