  1. What do the perpendicular lines mean, in the cases of Aegon I, Aenys I, etc.? Is it just tracking the current king? And if so, maybe it should be added to the key
  2. My apologies. I did indeed mean "hero", rather than "protagonist". Sometimes, they're one and the same, but not always, nor do they have to be.
  3. Well said, Starkz. Because doesn't everyone believe they're the protagonist? With a cast as large as the one that Asoiaf has, there are bound to be (and should be) plenty of interactions between characters who each believe they're doing the right thing for themselves and their people. -Ambrose
  4. Is there a true protagonist or hero in Asoiaf? I'm not sure there is, because GRRM does a great job at showing his characters as human (which is perhaps why his universe is so wildly popular), flaws and all. Up until when he kills his father in ASoS, Tyrion was my favorite "good guy" who I was absolutely rooting for. I still like him as a character, and he's still probably my favorite character for now, but he definitely lost some respect from me when he shot his father and strangled Shae. I understand why it was necessary in his eyes, but I think it could have been avoided, and definitely took him out of the running for protagonist in my book. Another "hero" I loved (and still do) was Robb. Sadly, as is well known by now, he met an untimely end at the hands of the Freys. When he was alive, though, he was the figurehead for the North to rally behind. Perhaps the most heroic character, Jon Snow definitely appeared incorruptible, up until he broke his vows. Again, I understand his motivations, but still. . . My running theory is that there is no true protagonist, to which the surplus of narrating characters surely contributes, but I'm interested to hear the community's thoughts on this matter -Ambrose
  5. Hello, everyone. I've been using this wiki for years now, mainly as a source for my ongoing family tree. I'd like to get into editing, though. Is there anything you recommend getting started with? I'd imagine that it's a pretty busy time, what with the moratorium in effect until tomorrow
