Shiera was what came to mind for me, but all of your points points are good. Daeron seemed like a good, capable king. Bloodraven would have had a lot more insider knowledge on how the rebellion unfolded/Aegon the Unworthy's decision to give Daemon the sword/Daemon and his supporters motivations. Just because he shares the title of bastard with certain siblings does't mean he should give them his loyalty over his trueborn siblings. That makes me think of all of prejudice bastards get in Westeros and how they're often referred to as treacherous by nature.
I'll take a step over the issues and point out that Jon cannot be Putin as Roose Bolton=Putin. You may think Roose is chillin behind the walls of Winterfell, but during the attack on Stanis, he's going to come out riding shirtless on the back of a grizzly.
Yay! I haven't slept much in the last few days, so it's a miracle I'm still making sense. I really hated driving through those damned chomps. I always played with Princess Peach and she throws a hissy fit any time something hits her. I amazingly still have my 64 and Mario Kart but I lost the contollers.
Genetic experimentation??? Now that you bring it up, what if Tywin was using some weird science as part of an elaborate plan to take over Westeros? Tired of being sneered at by Aerys and hungry to become greater than the "we're practically gods" Targaryens, Tywin was secretly using science and magic to create a pure Lannister master race and loyal super soliders to overthrow the Targaryens as the ruling dynasty. It explains so much! - Tywin married Joanna even though she was Aerys' mistress because she was the ideal female candidate to mother his pure Lannister children. - To establish his dynasty, two pure Lannister embryos (one male and one female) were created as perfect pairing to keep bloodline pure. Joanna delivers healthy golden Lannister super twins. Success! - Sonething goes wrong with second male child. Joanna dies birthing a dwarf child lacking desired pure Lannister traits. Tywin suspects Aerys' interference. That is no son of his but he cannot say anything without giving himself away. Complete failure. - The Cleganes were selected as the Lannister bannermen in the first trial of super soliders designed to be large, unnaturally strong, brutally efficient killing machines with unquestionable loyalty. Mixed results. - Summerhall. Tywin's undercover plant Maggy the Frog convinces Egg he can hatch dragons. Significant number of Targs eliminated. Tragedy used to engender obsession with prophecy in Targaryen family. - Pycelle. Helps Crown Prince Rhaegar come across obscure reading to furher prophecy obsession. Ensures Princess Elia cannot carry third dragon . Qyburn. After getting kicked out of the Citadel, Qyburn turns to his cousin and mentor, Lord Tywin. His loyalty shows in his time with Jaime - he saved as much of Jaime's arm as he could. Even after Tywin's untimely death, Qyburn is dutifully continuing Tywin's work by serving Cersei and building unstoppable monsters to defend House Lannister. Sorry, OP. I got carried away (^-^)
Cersei's love for her kids gives her positive points, but she has descended down a path of crazy that there might be no coming back from. I think her ultimate tragedy would be totally losing her shit and killing Tommen herself like she was going to do in GoT's Blackwater. Baelish did have some hardships, but they were nothing compared to what the Stark kids have been through, and I don't see any of them using and disposing of someone who truly loved them like he did to Lysa. He thinks he loved Catelyn, but love and lust are two very, very different things. The idea of Catelyn, he wanted, but who knows how much he would have liked the real her.
Good Guy Garlan, I have to know if you put that caption in quotes because it's not your own words or if you coined "treacherous lady parts" yourself. If its all you, gold star. From here on, I will be wary of all that treachery beneath my skirt.
Ah the only one that really leans toward villain for me is Baelish, and that is because, from what we've learned about him, he is willing to do anything - screw anyone over, kill anyone and climb over their bodies - to get what he wants. And all he seems to want is power or something else equally selfish or he just likes to sow misery. I just don't see any redeeming motivations for the lives lost in the conflict he started. The other characters on the list have all done bad things, but some of their motivations are justifiable and understandable. The ends justifies the means type approach that Twyin employs can be reprehensible, but I did think he was sincere in his comments about how crazy it is that killing less people at dinner is better than killing more in an going war. Sorry to not be able to add anything more, but it's the last day of my short work week and my ability to think is waning quickly.
