And to start us off, here is Bran's first chapter:
Introduced: Lord Eddard Stark* (Ned, Lord of Winterfell, Warden of the North, later Hand of the King, once ward of Lord Jon Arryn, owned the Valyrian greatsword ‘Ice’);
Brandon Stark (Bran, middle son of Lord Eddard; a warg with the ability to enter the minds of beasts, currently beyond the Wall with Meera and Jojen Reed, Hodor and Summer seeking the children of the forest);
Robb Stark* (the Young Wolf, heir to Winterfell, later Lord of Winterfell, later The King in the North);
Jon Snow (bastard son of Lord Eddard [?], later a steward and squire of Lord Commander Mormont with the Night’s Watch, later possesses the Valyrian bastard sword ‘Longclaw’, later still Lord Commander of the Night's Watch);
Theon Greyjoy (only surviving son of Balon Greyjoy, ward of Lord Eddard, later Prince of the Iron Islands, later captive of Ramsay Snow);
Jory Cassel* (Captain of Winterfell’s Guard, nephew of Ser Rodrik Cassel);
Hullen* (Master of Horse at Winterfell);
Harwin (Hullen’s son, guardsman of Winterfell, later member of the Lightning Lord's brotherhood without banners);
Desmond* (a guard, later part of the Hand’s household guard);
Grey Wind* (Robb’s direwolf);
Ghost (Jon’s direwolf);
Lady* (Sansa’s direwolf);
Nymeria (Arya’s direwolf, missing);
Summer (Bran’s direwolf);
Shaggydog (Rickon’s direwolf).
Lord Eddard Stark takes his 3 eldest sons (Bran, Robb, and his bastard Jon Snow) to witness the execution of a deserter of the Night’s Watch (Gared). Ned executes Gared with his greatsword, Ice, in the name of the King. Robb mentions that the deserter died bravely, but Jon points out that it wasn’t courage, the man was already dead of fear. Robb and Jon find a dead female direwolf and her litter of 5 direwolf pups (3 male and 2 female). The direwolf female was killed by the antlers of a stag. When the others join them, the symbolism is not missed by the adults (the direwolf, sigil of House Stark, killed by a stag, sigil of House Baratheon). Theon points out that a direwolf has not been sighted south of the Wall in 200 years. Jory and the other guards want to kill the direwolf pups, but Robb and Bran protest. Jon convinces Ned by stating, "Your children were meant to have these pups, my lord." Ned consents, but warns his children, "And the gods help you if you neglect them, or brutalize them." As they are about to depart for Winterfell, Jon finds a sixth direwolf pup, this one an albino and ostracized by the rest of the litter, and keeps the pup for himself.
So let's start discussing.
