[[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.
