Who is the most important non-POV character?

But really, the series isn't a discrete set of events, and I don't think this is a good metric to determine a character's importance.
Take Sandor, for example, from an "events" perspective, he's just some dude who's better than others with his sword. However, it's undeniable that he's an extremely important character in the story, from his interactions with Sansa and Arya. Littlefinger, on the other hand, is directly responsible for many of the series' events, yet has few really meaningful interactions with other characters (a little bit with Sansa, a little bit with Ned), and most of his actions happen off screen anyway.
That isn't to say there aren't characters who fit both bills (Varys and Stannis, for example), or that Littlefinger isn't a really important character (he is), but rather that we should take both metrics into account.
