The oldest of the Great Houses of Westeros, very big on honor and tradition. Once, the Starks were Kings in the North and the Kings of Winter, but after Aegon's conquest and the reformation of the seven kingdoms the Starks' rank was reduced to Wardens of the North. The old titles are revived following the execution of Ned Stark and his son's acclamation as King. In the aftermath of the Red Wedding, House Stark was believed to be extinguished with Robb Stark and his family being murdered (though some of his siblings still survive), with their lands, titles and seat of power handed over to House Bolton. [[spoiler:After the Second Battle of Winterfell, House Bolton is destroyed and the Starks are restored to power with Jon Snow as the new King in the North]]

* LoopholeAbuse[=/=]ExactWords: Due to the feeling [[ShellShockedVeteran of being broken by the events leading up to this point]] [[spoiler: ([[TraumaCongaLine including being betrayed, murdered, coming back only to learn there’s no afterlife, and having to confront his killers]]), Jon [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere quits the Night's Watch]] after having to hang the mutineers who murdered him. He passes on command to Dolorous Edd, saying that his "watch was ended". Normally, deserting the Night's Watch warrants the death penalty and the Night's Watch oath states that a member's watch "shall not end until [his] death." However, Jon ''did'' die (but was brought back), so he's freed from his oath. When Edd brings it up, Jon responds, "I pledged my life to the Night's Watch. I gave my life.”]]

** Makes a lot more sense in the novels, though, where Jon is only 14 as opposed to 20ish year old Jon in the TV series.

* LineageComesFromTheFather: Since his [[MissingMom mother is missing]] and her identity is totally unknown by most people (including him), a great deal more emphasis is put on Jon's Stark lineage because despite being the illegitimate son of Ned Stark, he's the kid who [[LikeFatherLikeSon echoes Ned the most]], he spent his life in the North entrenched by its ways and customs, and is the least influenced by Catelyn's southern ways since he's her [[TheUnfavourite unfavourite]]. [[spoiler:This is even a plot point by the end of Season Six when the Northern lords are willing to overlook his illegitimacy and name him as the King in the North because Jon is the [[HeirClubForMen last surviving son]] of Ned Stark (as far as they know) and the [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority living embodiment of a Northern warrior]] who can lead in [[GreaterScopeVillain great oncoming war against the dead]], despite Ned's [[PassedOverInheritance trueborn eldest daughter sitting right next him]]]]. Then there is an huge subversion of this trope in the same episode as we find out that his Stark lineage is actually from his mother, Lyanna Stark, and Jon has yet to find out that his biological father's lineage lies in the Valyrian dynasty of the Targaryens.

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler: The ''entire'' Stark household is kept unaware of Jon's true lineage by Ned, even his wife and brother.]]



* PhraseCatcher: The Stark words: “Winter Is Coming” (and has been for five season). [[spoiler: Winter arrives at the end of season 6.]]



* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Ned did not tell her who Jon's mother is, and it remained a secret until their deaths. In the Season 6 finale, [[spoiler: it's revealed that Ned did this to protect Jon -- the son of his sister Lyanna -- from Robert's rage as Robert absolutely despised Targaryens.]]

** He wants to save everyone, regardless of who they are or which side of the Wall they’re from, and will do whatever is necessary to save the living from the [[GreaterScopeVillain army of the dead]], even if it costs him personally. [[spoiler: Though there is also a sense to his saving the Wildlings by bringing them south of the Wall because any dead men north of the Wall becomes part of [[ZombieApocalypse Westeros’s greatest threat]], some of the Night’s Watch ''really don’t approve'' and it culminates in Jon being betrayed and stabbed by a said group of Night’s Watch brothers.]]

Jon refuses this longtime daydream out of his sense of duty to the Night’s Watch and realizing that the political squabbling among the kingdoms is nothing compared to the [[ZombieApocalypse impending threat of the White Walkers and their army of the dead]].
