And we may begin here, on her first chapter:
Introduced: Daenerys Targaryen (Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt; daughter of King Aerys Targaryen, later wife of Khal Drogo, later Khaleesi of the Dothraki, later "Mother of Dragons");
Viserys Targaryen* (the Beggar King, second son of Aerys Targaryen, brother of Daenerys);
Magister Illyrio Mopatis (magister of Pentos, a wealthy merchant);
Ser Jorah Mormont (former Lord of Bear Island, a knight exiled from the Seven Kingdoms, son of Jeor Mormont, later Commander of Daenerys' Queensguard, later still exiled by Dany);
Khal Drogo* (Khal of the Dothraki, later husband of Daenerys);
Khal Moro (another Khal of the Dothraki);
Rhogoro (Khal Moro’s son).
First mentioned: Prince Rhaegar Targaryen* (eldest son of King Aerys Targaryen, Prince of Dragonstone, brother of Daenerys and Viserys, killed at the Trident by Robert Baratheon);
Princess Elia Targaryen* (of House Martell, wife of Rhaegar, killed by Ser Gregor Clegane during the sack of King’s Landing; sister of Prince Doran Martell and Prince Oberyn);
Ser Willem Darry* (knight who rescued Dany and Viserys from Dragonstone and brought them to Braavos, former master-at-arms of King's Landing);
Princess Rhaenys* (daughter of Rhaegar and Elia, slain by Ser Amory Lorch during the sack of King’s Landing);
Prince Aegon* (infant son of Rhaegar and Elia, slain by Ser Gregor at his mother’s breast ).
<NOTE: neither Rhaenys nor Aegon are mentioned by name until Daenerys’ fifth chapter in ACOK>.
Dany is getting ready for her arranged introduction to Khal Drogo to become his bride. Viserys wants nothing more than Khal Drogo’s thousands of men to invade the Seven Kingdoms. Magister Illyrio has arranged this betrothal. Dany wonders why Magister Illyrio helps them at all, having heard rumors that he had friends throughout the 9 Free Cities, and all the way to Vaes Dothrak and the fabled lands of the Jade Sea, yet he didn’t have a friend he wouldn’t sell if the price were right. Viserys believes Illyrio helps them because he realizes Viserys is the rightful King. Viserys threatens Dany to look and act her best in front of Khal Drogo. Dany remembers the stories of her brother Rhaegar dying on the Trident at the hands of Robert Baratheon for the woman he loved (the question here is: was the woman his wife Elia or Lyanna Stark?).
Dany was born on Dragonstone nine months after they fled King’s Landing. Her mother died in childbirth, her father killed 9 months before by Ser Jaime Lannister, a Kingsguard sworn to protect him. The garrison at Dragonstone had been prepared to sell her and Viserys to the Usurper, but Ser Willem Darry took them to Braavos to escape certain death. They lived poor after Darry’s death, begging for a living, until Illyrio took them in. As they approach Khal Drogo’s manse, Viserys calculates that all he’ll need is ten thousand men, since the Tyrells, Redwynes, Darrys and Greyjoys will all help him when he lands. At the party, Illyrio points out Ser Jorah Mormont, a knight exiled 5 years ago for selling poachers to a Tyroshi slaver rather than giving them over to the Night’s Watch. Khal Drogo’s braid has never been cut, which among the Dothraki means he has never lost a battle. Illyrio brings Khal Drogo over to meet Dany.
