As you can see, this has been executed quite well as it’s easy to tell who’s who even without the labels!  And don’t worry, we know you’ve noticed that a number of characters are missing– Arya, Ned, and Cersei to name a few–more images are coming soon!

Wow, how awesome! Looking at these helps soften the blow of Season 3 being over, at least a little bit. Still sucks we have to wait until April 2014, though.

Character Summary – Robb Stark

Image by Riavel

We are down to our final summaries, one of them being on Robb Stark, The Young Wolf.

Robb is the eldest child and son of Eddard and Catelyn Stark and is heir to Winterfell and the North.  He gets along well with all of his siblings, including his bastard half-brother, Jon Snow.

Robb also had a friendly relationship with his father’s ward, Theon Greyjoy, who considered him as somewhat of a younger brother.

When Jon convinces Eddard to keep a pack of direwolf pups for each of the Stark children, Robb names his Grey Wind.

Robb’s relations with the Lannisters already starts off bad when he spars with Joffrey Baratheon using wooden swords, and Joffrey then insults him when he challenges him to spar with live steel.

Once Eddard accepts the role of Hand of the King, Robb takes his father’s stead as Lord of Winterfell. When Catelyn suspects that the Lannisters are somehow responsible for Bran’s accident, she confides in him along with others that she trusts and leaves Winterfell to leave Robb solely in charge while she goes to tell Eddard of her suspicions.

When Bran wakes, Robb is the one to confirm to Bran that his injury is permanent.

Tyrion provides blueprints for a special saddle for Bran to ride horses, Robb and Theon accompany him in the forest for his first ride.  Although Theon is able to kill most of the wildlings that attack Bran while he is riding in an attempt to steal the horse and his possessions, Robb is angered by Theon’s actions endanger Bran.

Theon did try to convince Robb before Bran’s attack that he should forge an army against the Lannisters for their suspected involvement in Bran’s accident.  Only when Eddard is captured for treason, and receives a letter from his sister Sansa, who he suspects was manipulated by Cersei, does he finally start gathering men for war.

He and his army meet up with his mother on their way south, and they form a strategy.  The strategy involves them going through a river that a Lord Walder Frey is in charge of, so Catelyn bargains with him by having Robb and Arya be betrothed to two of Frey’s children.  Robb agrees, knowing that Frey’s children may not be quite the woman he would have any attraction towards, especially since Frey is not the best looking person and he has never seen his children.

The strategy comes as a success as Robb divides his army, leaving 2000 of them as a distraction against Tywin Lannister’s army, with the rest of his army attacking and winning against Jaime Lannister’s army, holding Jaime prisoner.

After Eddard’s execution, Robb grieves briefly for him before his mother begins counsel on his, reminding him that he needs to rescue his sisters from the Lannisters, believing they are both held capture by them.  They consider which Baratheon to support over claim of the Iron Throne, Renly or Stannis, Lord Greatjon Umber convinces them to fight for Northern Independence and Robb’s army agrees, including Theon, proclaiming Robb as “King of the North.”

Robb Stark is played by Richard Madden.  Before Game of Thrones, he appeared in several UK shows, but this series has made him known internationally.  At first I wasn’t sure what to think of him or his character, but he started growing on me halfway through the season.  Of course, that’s probably because he doesn’t figure too prominently until later in the series anyway.  I have no complaints of his portrayal of Robb Stark, and I hope that he continues to make a mark for himself in the upcoming season.

Character Summary – Jaime Lannister

Day 9 is focused on the Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister.

He is the younger of the Lannister twins, his twin being Queen Cersei Lannister, and the first-born son of Tywin Lannister & Lady Joanna.

His nickname of Kingslayer came about during the Robert’s Rebellion, referring to when Robert Baratheon, Jon Arryn, and Eddard Stark rebelled against House Targaryen and the King Aerys Targaryen.  Jaime killed King Aerys, who had become insane during his reign.  Jaime had even sat on the Iron Throne with Aerys’ body still on the floor.  He patiently waited for who would be the next on the throne, not caring one way or the other.

As we come to A Game of Thrones, Jaime is in the Kingsguard, and soon it’s realized that Jaime’s relationship with his twin sister is more than just brotherly love.  They have been carrying on an incestuous relationship.   It is not found out, though, until the King and court make a trip to Winterfell.  During one of Bran Stark‘s wall-climbing adventures, he stumbles upon Jaime and Cersei having sex in an abandoned tower.  Jaime pushes Bran out window to kill the boy and prevent their secret from being revealed.

Jaime and Eddard don’t see eye to eye on certain things, especially Jaime’s slaying of Mad King Aerys.  Unfortunately, their animosity doesn’t fare well for Eddard, when Jaime’s dwarf brother Tyrion is taken prisoner by Eddard’s wife Catelyn in the Vale.  A battle takes place and Eddard is severely injured by one of Jaime’s guards before they can fight each other.  Jaime is upset at this, but doesn’t go any further against Eddard, knowing this he has a great advantage, only demanding for his brother’s return before leaving.

Later, Eddard realizes upon some information that Queen Cersei’s three blond-haired children were fathered by none other than Jaime Lannister.  Jaime is the biological father of King Baratheon’s children!  However, Eddard cannot confront Jaime about this, as Jaime is making plans with his father to start a war due to Tyrion’s imprisonment and for the House Lannister to create a new dynasty over the Seven Kingdoms.

Things erupt in King’s Landing after King Baratheon dies.  Joffrey takes the throne as King, Eddard is taken prisoner for treason, and Jaime is made Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, with no one ever knowing about Jaime and Cersei’s incest and the children.  Although Bran survived his fall, he had lost all memory of what he had seen.

The Stark battle back after Eddard’s execution and Jaime and his army are taken prisoner by the Stark army.  Jaime confesses that he pushed Bran out of the window, but he doesn’t say for what reason.

And that is where we end with Jaime, still being held prisoner by the Stark army.  Where will he go now that he’s separated from his family?

Jaime is played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and has been in a few known films, including Black Hawk Down, Wimbledon, and Kingdom of Heaven.  This is probably his most popular role to date.  That may change, however, as he’s signed to be in a Tom Cruise film next year.  He does Jaime Lannister well, being that he’s quite a handsome figure.  It seems he does have a good insight as to what his character should be, and I hope that he continues with that as his character should develop and change during this second season.
