* CosmicPlaything: Fate has not been kind to House Stark.

* CosmicPlaything: Fate has not been kind to House Stark.Stark in the last four decades or so. Sticky fates were visited upon Rickard Stark, his children, and his grandchildren.
* CultOfPersonality: Within the North, House Stark is more than just a feudal overlord, they are seen as almost quasi-religious figures (as evidenced by phrases "There must always be a Stark in Winterfell") and many associate House Stark with prosperity, stability, justice and the good life, which is understandable given that the North has ''always'' been ruled by House Stark, the Boltons are even worse and that during Winter, House Stark opens and hosts Winterton, a small town outside the Castle with rations and supplies to protect people during the long winter, which further enshrined in the minds of the people, the importance of House Stark to the North. Likewise, a nickname for the North as a whole is "wolves" even if it is only House Stark that has that on its heraldry.

* AllMyFault: Believes Sansa and Jeyne's accusations that Mycah -- the butcher's boy -- and Lady's deaths were all her fault after the Trident incident, despite being the only person in the whole mess to try and save Mycah and defending Lady, even after Sansa refused to back her story up.

* TheUnfavourite: Perceives herself to be this for Catelyn, to the point of thinking her mother wouldn't want her back -- leaving her as a child refugee in wartorn Westeros -- because she isn't ladylike or pretty like Sansa. From Catelyn's end, while her perspective makes it clear she did love Arya a lot, it's clear Arya's fears of her preferring Sansa weren't unfounded.
--> Arya's narrative: ''And her lady mother, what would she say? Would she still want her back, after all the things she'd done?'' Arya chewed her lip and wondered. "Well, my hair's messy and my nails are dirty and my feet are all hard." Robb wouldn't care about that, probably, but her mother would. Lady Catelyn always wanted her to be like Sansa, to sing and dance and sew and mind her courtesies.
--> Catelyn: “Sansa was a lady at three, always so courteous and eager to pleas. Men would say she had my look, but she will grow into a woman far more beautiful than I ever was....And Arya, well, Arya was a trial, it must be said. Half a boy and half a wolf pup."

* NobodyPoops: For a series that usually has no hesitation about detailing the less dignified aspects of life, the sanitary problems Bran's paralysis would cause have never been openly discussed.
