No, not the BIG question. In fact please refrain from bringing that question here.

My question is simply, what do you think of this guy? We don't have much information on him yet forumites seem to feel strongly one way or the other on his character.

What do you think? Edit: and why?

Well-intentioned, morally upright, well-educated, but still young, inexperienced and rash. Could become great. Or die young.

:agree: That!

 

But I think we know too little to truly have an opinion.

He's young and lacks experience, which can be improve with time. I think JonCon is a good influence on him, he could do great things. Who cares if he's fake, really? I hope he is real and I hope he survives.

He upended the cyvasse board and made Tyrion pick the pieces up.

He seems to be very bright with a fiery personality. Unfortunately he has quite a bitter black streak at his heart so I don't think he'll make a very good king for the common people in reality.

Hugo Hill is a pretty repulsive little creature at this point and has been mouthing off to Aegon for like 2 pages. To top it off Aegon is a king...

I don't like Tyrion either, but this is why people call him a spoiled brat.

I'm a Tyrion fan! I just don't see how that makes him spoiled. Aegon is a king, how many kings tolerate getting openly mocked and lectured.

Let's switch Aegon with any other IT claimant for that cyvasse game and see how long Hugo keeps his head.

I agree with you, it's not me who's labelling him spoiled because of one thing.

Pretty much. I think he'd be great if he lived, but my bet is on die young.

Even Jon Snow, who is not known for his quick temper, had troubles keeping himself from hitting Tyrion.

We only have a few of his actions to judge him by (words are wind): the cyvasse game reaction, his determination to stay on the deck and fight off any stone men with the others, his appointment of duck to his Kingsguard, and his decision to lead the siege of storm's end, which apparently goes well. There are others, but these are the few that stick out to me.
The cyvasse game does tell a lot, as he is too willing to trust at the beginning and visibly angered at being deceived. I think this is in total a good reaction. He should not be trusting, but that's all he has known thus far, because all the people around him are diehard loyal. He wanted to help the rest of his group against the threat of the stone men, but had to be forced below. From this we can tell he's not a completely selfish asshole and he cares about people. Appointing Duck and his reasoning for doing so is sound in my opinion. Duck is a good fighter of proven loyalty. In a previously unknown world where loyalties shift with the wind it is a good thing to have a loyal sword close at hand, despite his less than noble birth and history. And his determination to lead at Storm's End shows he wants to lead. He is not being thrust into this position by manipulators. He wants to be the one responsible because he knows he can succeed, showing confidence as well.

Well, okay, on second thought, he has maybe no quick temper, but not a slow one either...

was inexperienced and too trusting, but we see that changing. I'm rooting for him kid is determined and eager to prove himself and has a good moral compass. Best thing is he is finally starting to take charge and act like a King. I hope he doesn't end up like robb time for the targs to step up now.
