* BigSisterInstinct: In the preview chapters of ''The Winds of Winter'', she’s very overprotective with her cousin, Elia Sand. At one point, she panicked when she didn’t return only to find her catching some fish and then, she scolded her. She also caught her kissing with some serving boy and put up a "[[MySisterIsOffLimits get away from my cousin, mister]]" aura at him.

* WidowWoman: [[spoiler:Subverted in that she and Oberyn weren't married. But since Dornish culture considers the paramours of highborn men to be almost-wives, Ellaria is essentially treated as Oberyn's widow once she goes home to Dorne after his death.]]

-->'''Tywin:''' ... a cautious man, a reasoned man, subtle, deliberate, even indolent to a degree. He is a man who weighs the consequences of every word and every action.

** During the First Dornish War, Aegon The Conqueror named Lord Rosby as Warden of the Sands when he found Sunspear to be emptied much like the other castles at Dorne. Meria, bordering 90 years old and blind as a bat, overpowered Lord Rosby, bounded him, dragged him to the top of the Spear Tower and threw him out the window.

** Somewhat justified in the next book. [[spoiler: According to Oberyn's daughter, Tyene Sand, a mere scratch from a blade dipped in manticore venom would be enough to put a man in an immediate state of utter agony, as well as ensure a slow, excruciating death. Considering he had just used his poisoned spear to cut the Mountain up with surgical precision, Oberyn might assumed Gregor was far too injured and consumed with pain to put any more of a fight. Clearly, he was wrong.]]

** Tywin Lannister. They are two of the most dangerously cunning lords in the Seven Kingdoms. Both keep a tight leash on their respective domains, but Doran is loathed by his fellow Dornishmen while Tywin's subjects respect and fear him. Both have their younger brothers as TheConsigliere, although Tywin's brother is more of a follower, as opposed to Doran's who is way more assertive. and have complex relationships with their children due to toying with their lives.

* {{Pride}}: The Martells, like most Dornishmen, are very, VERY proud of their great heritage. Even more than most in Westeros. Hell, they rival even the Lannisters and Greyjoys in this regard.

* GeniusCripple: He's described as wheelchair-bound due to extreme gout. And yet, he's more dangerous than any other great lords who are on their feet. Even Tywin speaks of him with respect.

And given [[AmbiguousSituation the current state of the remaining Lannisters,]] it's uncertain if any of them will ever know the full scope of Doran's machinations.]]

-->'''Doran:''' ''(to Arianne)'' You mistake patience for forbearance. [[spoiler: I have worked at the downfall of Tywin Lannister since the day they told me of Elia and her children. It was my hope to strip him of all that he held most dear before I killed him, but it would seem his dwarf son has robbed me of that pleasure.]]
