For dragons are fire made flesh, and fire is power.?

This quote is from "A Clash of Kings: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Two" *By George R.R. Martin*.This is the full quote:> "They shall come day and night to see the wonder that has been born again into the world, and when they see they shall lust. For dragons are fire made flesh, and fire is power."Is this separating a full sentence into two? What kind of usage is this?Was it supposed to be like this:> "They shall come day and night to see the wonder that has been born again into the world, and when they see they shall lust for dragons that are fire made flesh, and fire is power."----------Additionaly:Is there an **inversion** here? If yes, what kind of inversion technique is this?Also, "fire made flesh" is a phrase made with past participle deverbal adjective. Hence, Can we say:> Dragons are fire made flesh.or/and> Dragons have fire made flesh.Then, we go back to the beginning again, why is "for" there? Was it supposed to be part of the previous sentence?Are these structures only used by authors? Do you have any other examples like this?
