Game of Thrones

George R. R. Martin has gone to great lengths to create an amazing world in the Game of Thrones universe. Viewers are hit with over a thousand years of history, spanning across two continents, featuring The Seven Kingdoms, a giant wall, free folk, knights, white walkers, slaves, pirates, and dragons. It’s OK to feel overwhelmed by the amount of new characters constantly being thrown into the mix. Those of us that own or read the books are lucky enough to have an appendix that identifies each character and which House they’re affiliated with.

Haven’t read the books? Not to worry, HBO just released a video introducing the new characters in Game of Thrones: Season 3. The video also provides a little background for each character to help you understand where they come from. Not to mention there are a few sneak peaks at what’s in store for some of our favorite characters.

New Characters

  • Olenna Tyrell – The Queen of Thorns
  • Missandei – Cunning linguist
  • Mance Rayder – The King Beyond The Wall
  • Tormund Giantsbane – Tribe leader and right hand man for Mance
  • Orell – Worg that can control an eagle CAWWWWWWWW!
  • Jojen & Meera Reed – Frog folk that help Bran understand his abilities
  • Blackfish Tully – Catelyn Stark’s uncle
  • Edmure Tully – Catelyn Stark’s brother and heir to Riverrun (bit of a douche)
  • Thoros of Myr – Red Priest and member of the Brotherhood Without Banners
  • Beric Dondarrion – Leader of the Brotherhood Without Banners

There you have it. Check out the video, take a few notes, and watch Game of Thrones: Season 3 Sunday nights only on HBO.
