Bastard son of Eddard Stark. He's a member of the Night's Watch. He's been living "north of the wall," where he fell in love with a woman of the Free Folk, Ygritte, who nearly killed him in the third season for abandoning her and escaping the Free Folk to return home to Winterfell.
4. Tyrion Lannister
"The imp." He is a little person, a "halfman" and a member of the richest family, House Lannister. He is extremely clever, a womanizer and lover of wine. He uses his wit to fight those who judge him for being height challenged, and he's adept at leading a kingdom.
5. Arya Stark

6. Ser Jaime Lannister
Jamie is a knight of the Kingsguard. He is in love with his twin sister, Cersei. He does not know King Joffrey is his child. Until the third season, Jamie was known for his sword fighting skills. But he was captured by the Stark family, and in the process of returning home to his family, a rogue group of forest pirates cut off his sword hand.
