    In the mythical land of Game of Thrones, seven noble families fight for rule over the land of Westeros, but none are more powerful or wealthier than the Lannisters, or as the call themselves, Lions. Although the show doesn’t have an explicit good and bad side, many viewers see the Head of House Lannister as the main antagonist. Tywin Lannister is a brutal yet calculating leader, who is seen as a villain because of his ruthless actions of violence toward many of the characters in the show. Through these actions, Tywin has become the most powerful and feared man in all of Westeros. In Chuck Klosterman’s essay, “Villains Who Are Not Villains,” and Tess Collins’ article, “The Sympathetic Villain,” they argue that a villain can never be truly looked…

    his upbringing, adds depth and realism to his character. Tyrion, on the other hand, while arguably more complex because of his dwarfism is actually more influenced by the values that Tywin Lannister has imparted on his son and have much more sway on Tyrion’s actual actions throughout the book. Daenerys, they argue, is shaped more through the things that have happened because of her; Drogo’s death, her dragons birth, naming herself Queen of Meereen, then the past. However if it wasn’t for Viserys…

    In all honesty, it had always been difficult for me to follow a television series. I could never understand how my friends could invest a decent amount of their time into watching multiple series. That was until I started watching Game of Thrones late summer of last year. Although the pilot of the series aired on April of 2011, I finally got around to binge-watching it last summer to understand what the fuss was all about. Granted, I held off watching the show due to its’ excessive nudity and…

    Martin created a world of Westeros in A Game of Thrones. The way George R.R. Martin was able to respond to other writers in the high fantasy was by getting influenced by the other author methods they used in their writing. One of the most shared things that both authors have in their high fantasy novels was the formation of the imaginative world, which he demonstrates from Martin’s Skills. A Game of Thrones has a Westeros, and The Lord of the Rings has Middle Earth which are similar to their own…

    “The Children of the Forest” The Children of the Forest are an ancient race of supernaturals in Westeros. They were last seen over 8,000 years ago and are introduced in A Song of Ice and Fire as nothing more than a fairy tale, believed to be long extinct. Similar to the Ancient Celts, they were once the indigenous race of Westeros and following a war between the First Men they were forced to retreat to the fringe of Westeros, “beyond the Wall,” where their history turned into legend which…

    The uncompromising exploration of this theme is exemplified through the brutal death of the noble protagonist in Eddard Stark and the rising prosperity of characters that lack the same ethics as the Starks, in Littlefinger and Cersei Lannister. The author has even created a contrast in societies, from Westeros to Essos, that have different beliefs and values relating to loyalty and duty, which have subsequently enabled readers to understand that the attitudes towards loyalty and duty differ in…

    Victarion Greyjoy is a bit of an odd choice for this ranking. Not because he actually is a good guy who’s just misunderstood by us readers or something. No. He certainly is not. He is an odd choice, because he is hardly the cruelest, the maddest, the most evil, the most selfish, the most disgusting or even the most boring character in ASoIaF. He is neither, I would even go so far as to say that probably nobody will seriously claim he were. So, why is the guy on our list? In other words: Why…
