tyrion is one of my favorite characters on game of thrones. he’s the youngest brother to queen cersei and ser jaime lannister, making him uncle to the king (on both sides… yikes. okay moving on) and the inheritor of the lannister line. originally the hand of the king in his father’s stead, tyrion uses his wits and charisma in an attempt to rid kings landing of its corruption. he briefly marries sansa stark before she escapes following the purple wedding, in which he is falsely accused of killing his nephew, king joffrey. he then escapes himself, following lord varys to essos and then (unwillingly) following ser jorah to meet daenerys targaryen
before betraying her, for some reason? idk we all just ignore seasons 7 & 8
my favorite quality about tyrion is that he never needs to display his power with his physicality. he’s been called many things— a demon monkey, the imp, and so on— but he claims to “wears it like a badge of honor,” and never uses the usual tactics of physical threats or seduction to change the seven kingdoms. instead of being a brute force like his brother, he’s an intelligent force, reading people and situations (as well as books!) to make calculated, thought-out decisions. wherever he is placed in a kingdom— master of coin or hand of the king— he always does his best to fix any problems that exist and improve the lives of his people. though he is hated almost unanimously by his family and other lords, he does not let this stop him from achieving what he wants.
