Game of Thrones Characters


While Game of Thrones hinged upon who would claim the Iron Throne, other characters still managed to capture fans’ affection without caring about that fateful decision.

Sansa Stark managed to overcome sexist princess stories, lethal court intrigues, and betrothals to Joffrey Lannister (the Hound), Ramsay Bolton and Sansa’s own father Robert Stark in order to become an imposing ruler of the North.

Gendry Baratheon

Gendry Baratheon, often referred to as King Robert’s unacknowledging Bastard Son, stands in stark contrast to Joffrey, his presumed heir and supposed successor, who had an overbearing sense of entitlement and was arrogant and rude. Gendry stands in contrast with this personality by being both humble and polite – as well as skilled blacksmith who is responsible for creating Oathkeeper for Jon Snow and Heartsbane for Arya Stark now owned by her family ancestor Arya now owns it from him!

“Khal Drogo is an invaluable ally during a war. He’s smart, pragmatic and loyal to those he considers family – not to mention one of only a few people who understand how to forge Valyrian steel, used in making weapons capable of taking down White Walkers or wights.

He seems proud of his true bloodline, despising Lannisters for killing his father and for their bloody war across Westeros. Robert agrees to help Jon Snow during the Battle of Winterfell due to their mutual hatred of Lannisters and Robert’s loyalty toward Robert; additionally, Arya considers him an invaluable friend.

Margaery Tyrell

Margaery Tyrell is an intelligent young lady. She inherited her grandmother Olenna’s ability to plan ahead and think strategically. Margaery engages in palace intrigue or manipulates those around her as needed; yet remains extremely loyal to both House Tyrell and her family.

Margaery Baratheon became engaged to Joffrey and later married him; however, after being widowed a second time before Joffrey’s assassination by poison, Margaery remarried Tommen Baratheon and became Queen of Westeros by marriage.

Octa Unella takes advantage of Tommen’s innocence to manipulate him into doing exactly as she wants, which includes convincing Loras not to surrender his family legacy and remain strong during imprisonment by Faith Militant. When Queen of Thorns visits Septa Unella she is upset with Septa for siding with Faith Militant and accepting their viewpoint that Loras must repent of his homosexual behavior before assuring her she has an elaborate plan in place that can save Septa’s family legacy. However, Septa remains hopeful because Septa Unella knows Septa has her back.

Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth is a powerful woman with no tolerance for fools or people who try to manipulate her into taking anything she doesn’t want from life. Determined to pursue success on her own terms, and she ultimately does. A skilled swordswoman herself, Brienne has no fear when it comes to killing enemies of Renly Baratheon; only person that treated him with respect in return. Although their love was ultimately unrequited.

Septa Roelle taught her to gain confidence despite being physically ugly. Later she met Catelyn Stark and pledged her allegiance. Later still she joined Renly Baratheon’s Kingsguard; when Renly Baratheon declared his claim to the Iron Throne she became part of it as well; during this time Ser Emmon Cuy and Ser Robar Royce attacked her; killing both in self-defense but they weren’t convinced of her actions.

No matter her outwardly masculine features or appearance, she remains a noble knight who lives up to her code of honor and believes in fighting for what is important to her and taking personal revenge as necessary.

Ser Davos Seaworth

Davos exemplifies what it means to be a gentleman knight: wise, reliable and caring about people. His devotion is unparalleled when assisting Stannis Baratheon in his efforts to claim the throne for House Stark; Davos earns Stannis’ trust through being loyal and honest in his interactions.

Davos comes from humble origins and was a skilled smuggler by trade. When Robert’s Rebellion hit, Davos successfully navigated through Shipbreaker Bay’s blockade to bring much-needed supplies into Storm’s End for those starving forces defending Castle Storm’s End defending it against starvation forces defending Storm’s End castle during Robert’s Rebellion. To show his appreciation, Stannis knighted him and granted him nobility status with choice lands at Cape Wrath; additionally he personally cut off Davos’ left hand as punishment for his criminal career of smuggling.

Davos is an unwavering believer of the Seven Religion. Although skeptical of Melisandre’s advice and practices the old ways instead, leading him into conflict with her followers and the Red Priestess herself. A fierce fighter, Davos always stands up for what’s right.

Beric Dondarrion

While Beric Dondarrion made a brief appearance in Season 1 (where Ned Stark sent him after Ser Gregor Clegane for robbing and pillaging Riverlands under Lannister banner), his true presence made a major statement in Season 3, when he returned as leader of Brotherhood Without Banners (a small group of warriors fighting not for monarchs but on behalf of common folk). Lord Blackhaven himself is well known as fearsome warrior known for their fiery swords and ability to rise from death – be it by either magical or mortal means!

He’s been killed six times, each time being brought back to life by Thoros the Red Priest. Each time, however, a bit of himself dies every time. In his words: He “loses something of himself every time.”

Beric last appeared during Eastwatch-by-the-Sea during Tormund and Beryl’s participation in the Wight Hunt, at Eastwatch by the Sea. We won’t know for certain until April 14 when season six premieres and Beric returns.

Tormund Giantsbane

Tormund Giantsbane, one of Mance Rayder’s top lieutenants and an accomplished raider himself, is known for being fearless in battle and terrifying to his opponents. Jon Snow sent Tormund out to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, to strengthen its defenses against any additional attacks by the Others that might threaten Hardhome. Though reluctant at first, Tormund eventually agreed due to their increasing numbers.

Horn-blower is well known for his upbeat, positive personality. He often cracks jokes to entertain himself and others. Additionally, he enjoys food and drink (particularly ale and mead ) as well as fighting skillfully to earn the name “Tall Talker”.

Tormund leads the wildlings on a march to confront Ramsay Bolton following learning of King’s Landing’s massacre, during which time he meets Brienne of Tarth and falls in love. But ultimately decides to return with them beyond the Wall with Direwolf Ghost for safety’s sake – this collectible figure features his likeness from Game of Thrones as it depicts it on HBO television series; please be aware that it contains small parts, sharp points and potentially hazardous components designed only for adult collectors.


Ygritte is an intelligent and charming skinchanger with an unwavering trust in herself that allows her to rely on her intellect when needed. She often provokes and challenges those around her to show who she really is while also knowing when it is appropriate to remain silent and be an excellent friend. When someone earns her trust, she remains loyal.

Rose Eleanor Arbuthnot-Leslie first took on the role of Ygritte in season three, quickly winning over fans with her fiery performance. Fans fell for her strong willed character who puts family and friends before all else, including herself.

Ygritte stands out as an iconic character in Game of Thrones because of her distinctive characteristics and role as a point-of-view character. As a skinchanger who can enter an animal’s mind to control its movements in battles and hunting situations, she can often turn the tables in combat and hunting situations to her advantage. Additionally, she’s known as fierce fighter who doesn’t give up easily and one memorable moment from season five was when she killed off those responsible for ordering Prince Joffrey to be burned at the stake – an unforgettable scene indeed!


Gilly is an unlikely hero; she’s an awkward foster kid who idolizes Courtney but struggles with being placed with new families. However, through this journey she learns valuable lessons about empathy and communication that help shape her into an exceptional individual.

Game of Thrones, an epic medieval fantasy world created by George R.R. Martin and based on his best-selling book series, showcases powerful families vying for control of the Iron Throne. An epic tale that spans the continents of Westeros and Essos.

Initial characters on Game of Thrones came mainly from House Stark (Rhaegar and Lyanna’s family). As more families entered the scene – most notably Lannisters from King’s Landing and Targaryens from Westeros – became more prominent, until Daenerys from Essos returned with three dragon eggs for herself and her fiance to start a new chapter in their story of Seven Kingdoms.
