    So whose everyones favourite and least liked ASOIAF characters. Don't forget to include reasons.

    My favourite characters are Jon Snow, Eddard Stark, Jaime Lannister, Theon Greyjoy and Tyrion Lannister. Jon's definently my favourite though, he's a great and rather trouble character. Plus, the Nights Watch are really cool, and I can foresee him rising the ranks quite quickly. Eddard Stark is another favourite, because of his noble attitude and dedication to honour and his family, whilst the Kingslayer is just a bad ass, and Tyrion Lannister is a smart, witty and funny character to read about.

    Theres no characters I really dislike, but Joffrey Baratheon gets on my nerves big time ! He's such a pussy, and no one can really do anything about it. I hope he gets his ass kicked sometime soon, and I hope Robb Stark's the one to do it.

    It's got to be
    Tyrion. He has no friends, it's sad...
    Jon Snow and Jaime. <They are the only characters who become better people over the story.>
    Edmure. Reminds me of myself.
    Sansa. I know she's useless, but she isn't trained for what her life becomes.
    Dolorous Edd. You know why.

    On the other hand, it's also got to be
    Theon. Adolescent moron. Never has a good reason for doing anything.
    Catelyn. SO BORING...
    <Daario. He's trouble, I tell you.>
    Gendry. I REALLY hope he doesn't save the day somehow, <being the rightful King and all.>

    But surely you know about Gendry from half-way through the first book, when Ned meets him?

    Incidentally, how long do I have to keep this 'Newbie' sign?

    **SPOILER**

    umm.. Wasn't that obvious first book, EMT? BTW, Robert had many bastards, Gendry isn't the oldest and another had a noble mother.

    25 posts til the n00b sign goes away. Post more. Play the W/A game. :)

    I like: Jon Snow (how can ya not), Brandon Stark (it's great how he's not wallowing in self pity), Danerys (the rightful Queen, w00t)

    I dislike Joffrey (annoying P.I.T.A.), Gregor Clegane (how can anyone be so callous) and Robert Barethon (how could he not know!!!! Darn kids didn't look a bit like him)

    Hmm....maybe I already did know that. I didn't realize at the time that Gendry is that armourer kid right, the one who wears the bull-horn ? Well, i guess its not really a spoiler then is it. Lol. My bad, sorry.

    *** spoilers ***

    well, naturally i am a Theon person. He's charismatic and not afraid to be ambitous (although that cost him alot in the long run). Besides, he's the last person you would think that would take over Winterfell.

    Secondly, I like Davos. He's unquestioned loyalty to Stannis is an admirable quality.

    As for the people i don't like: Joff, Cersei, Bran, Catlyn, and ned. Eddard was too honorable. It made him blind to the bigger picture. He should of never trusted littlefinger...

    I have to say i reserve a special place in my heart for one charactor. Roose Bolton. My feelings towards him are a mixture of admiration and loathing. He commanded such a presence, and is a fearsome charactor, even though he's not physically intimidating. But, i despise him in turn, do to the flaying he gave Theon. That bloody, awesome bastard...

    Personally my favorite is Tywin Lannister. He is who he is, and makes no bones about it. He's a respected and feared man, and in some cases hated. But at least he's noticeable enough to be hated. My least favorite was Robert Bareathon. I really felt he didn't deserve to be king and really I was disappointed with him.

    I have to agree with Nik, I like Dany as well. She seems to have a lot of admirable qualities for one so young, and she doesn't let herself develope an overwhelming sense of self importance. I have to think that her day is coming.

    On the other hand, she did nail a load of old men to posts, and order the entire male population of a city killed.

    Edmure for King!

    Possible Spoiler:




    My favorite character definitely has to be Lord Commander Jon Snow

    Close seconds are Tyrion, Dany, and Davos....


    Can't Stand: Sansa Stark, Joffrey

    I don't really know...For me it's the fact that she acts so unlike a stark...and frankly i being a guy...lots of the actions she takes i don't really agree with...also never forget how she turned against her own father...Other than that...I don't know...She just doesn't do it for me...

    She never turned against her father, she was frightened by Cersei. And you have to remember shes a very young girl, and wouldnt understand the extent of what was happening. She even (rather bravely) stood up for Eddard in court and begged pardon.

    "never turned against her father" doesn't seem to me to apply...If I remember it right she voluntarily offered the information up to cersei....perhaps i'm wrong...but i'm willing to continue to have a friendly argument about this...
