FORMER GREAT HOUSE TARGARYEN OF VALYRIA


House Targaryen is a former Great House of Westeros and was the ruling royal House of the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries. After the obliteration of Valyria in the Doom, the Targaryens launched a devastating invasion of Westeros using three dragons to spearhead their attack. In a short period of time, six of the seven formerly independent kingdoms had surrendered to the Targaryen leader, King Aegon I, unifying the continent under his rule, before it was deposed during Robert's Rebellion. House Targaryen's words are "Fire and Blood". Currently based in Dragonstone, House Targaryen seeks to retake the Seven Kingdoms from House Lannister.

as Aemon Targaryen


King Aerys II Targaryen, popularly called "the Mad King", was the last member of House Targaryen to rule from the Iron Throne. Although his rule began benevolently, he succumbed to madness and was eventually deposed by Lord Robert Baratheon in a civil war. Aerys's death at the hands of Jaime Lannister brought an end to the Targaryen dynasty, which had ruled the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries. However, the Targaryen bloodline survived through his grandson, Jon Snow, and his two youngest children, Viserys and Daenerys.

Viserys is the second son and heir of Aerys II. Viserys and his baby sister Daenerys were smuggled to safety in the Free Cities of Essos. After years spent fruitlessly wandering the Free Cities seeking military support to retake his throne, Viserys and Daenerys became guests of the Magister Illyrio Mopatis of Pentos. Viserys, believing himself to be the King of the Seven Kingdoms, demands a crown to be made by the Dothraki. Drogo responds by melting gold medallions in a pot, then pouring it over Viserys' head, killing him.

Queen Daenerys I Targaryen, also known as Dany and Daenerys Stormborn, is the only daughter of Aerys II. Viserys traded her off to Drogo in exchange for an army. After her brother's death, she embarked on a campaign to claim the title Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Several prominent figures joined her cause, declaring her as their queen. As the Mother of Dragons, Dany leads a number of successful invasions with the strength of her three dragons and the Unsullied Army she acquired in Astapor. But now her greatest challenge is the invasion of the White Walkers.

Aemon was the maester at Castle Black and one of Jeor Mormont's closest advisers in the Night's Watch. He was born Aemon Targaryen and was the last known Targaryen in Westeros. He was the great-uncle of Daenerys, and unknown to him, was the great-great uncle of Jon Snow. Aemon's origins have long been forgotten by most, as he remained dedicated to his vows as a Maester and a brother of the Night's Watch for many decades. Aemon gave up all rights to inheritance when he took his vows, which also included relinquishing his surname "Targaryen".




Nathalie Emmanuel
as Missandei



Jacob Anderson
as Grey Worm



Marcos James
as White Rat



Conleth Hill
as Varys

Master of Whisperers


Missandei was born on the island of Naath in the Summer Sea, off the coast of the continent of Sothoryos. She was enslaved at a young age and taken to Slaver's Bay in Essos, where she was eventually put to work as an interpreter for the slaver-master Kraznys mo Nakloz, one of the Good Masters of Astapor. Missandei speaks nineteen languages including High Valyrian (her favorite), the Low Valyrian dialect of Slaver's Bay, Dothraki, and the Common Tongue of Westeros. After gaining her freedom, she joins Daenerys.

Grey Worm is the chosen commander of the Unsullied, the warrior-eunuchs of Astapor whose reputation for combat is without equal. Grey Worm became one of the main advisors to Daenerys Targaryen. He participates in the sack of Astapor, inflitrated Yunkai and led the liberation of Meereen. He later falls in love with Daenery's advisor and handmaiden Missandei. Grey Worm then sails with Daenerys in order to reclaim the Iron Throne. As part of Daenerys' invasion, Grey Worm and his Unsullied capture Casterly Rock.

White Rat is a member of the Unsullied, slave soldiers trained by the Good Masters of Astapor. Like all Unsullied, his birth name was cast aside and he was given a new, dehumanizing name as part of the Good Masters' training to shed all sense of self-worth and individuality from their chattel. Along with thousands of his 'brothers', White Rat chose to fight for Daenerys as a free man. He is killed when a Sons of the Harpy member ambushed him from behind and slit his throat while White Rat was distracted by a prostitute working for the Harpys.

Varys is a eunuch and was the Master of Whisperers on the King's Small Council until he is forced to flee King's Landing. He is a skilled manipulator and commands a network of informants across two continents. Although he feigns support for her assassination while serving under King Robert Baratheon, Varys's true loyalties are eventually revealed to be to Daenerys, as he believes her rule would be the best way to preserve peace and prosperity in the Seven Kingdoms. Later, he pledges to serve Daenerys as her Master of Whisperers.



Generations of compound inbreeding have preserved in the Targaryen bloodline the classic Valyrian features of silver-white (platinum blonde) hair, and very fair, pale skin. Allegedly, this also preserved in their bloodline the ability to successfully bond with and ride dragons. They also seem to be somewhat more tolerant of extreme heat and high temperatures than other people, though they are by no means invulnerable to fire or at least, not all of them.




Ian McElhinney
as Barristan Selmy



Peter Dinklage
as Tyrion Lannister


Barristan Selmy was the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, the elite bodyguard of the King of the Andals and the First Men. Barristan is the only known member of House Selmy, a minor house that serves House Baratheon. Barristan Selmy is noted as an extremely capable warrior, even in his old age, and has a reputation for honor and chivalry that is second to none. Angered by Joffrey demoting him, he shed his Kingsguard armor and eventually pledges loyalty to Daenerys. He was ambushed and killed by the Sons of the Harpy while trying to defend a wounded Grey Worm.

Tyrion Lannister is currently the Hand of the Queen for Daenerys. His bio resides on the House Lannister page.




SECOND SONS SELLSWORD COMPANY OF ESSOS - ALLEGIANCE WITH HOUSE TARGARYEN


The Second Sons is a sellsword company operating in Essos, with members recruited from various Free Cities and fighting as heavy cavalry. Typical sellswords, they are a rowdy, rough-and-tumble private army who fight for coin and the highest bidder. The name of the company comes from the tradition of firstborn children in noble or wealthy families receiving inheritance, property and titles from their parents, while second sons receive nothing. Second sons (and younger) therefore often seek their fortunes in the wider world by joining sellsword companies.




Michiel Huisman
as Daario Naharis



Mark Killeen
as Mero



Ramon Tikaram
as Prendahl na Ghezn


Daario is a highly skilled and capable warrior. Being trained a pit fighter since the age of 12 and then fighting as a sellsword after that, mostly all of his life has revolved around fighting. Daario rose to fame within the fighting pits earning his master so much money that at the time of his master's death, Daario was rewarded with freedom. During his years as a pit fighter he learned to fight with several different fighting styles. Besides being fluent in the Common Tongue, Daario is also fluent in Low Valyrian due to his Tyroshi origin.

Mero hails from the Free City of Braavos and was the leader of the Second Sons. His nickname, "the Titan's Bastard", makes reference to the Titan of Braavos, the enormous statue that guards the harbor entrance to the city. Under his leadership, the Second Sons' reputation had fallen to the point where none of the Free Cities will hire him any longer.

Besides being a captain in the Seconds Sons, Prendahl na Ghezn is a mercenary of Ghiscari origin and serves as the commander of the Stormcrows, a noted mercenary company which fights for the highest bidder.
