Night's Watch.



* Jon Snow, bastard son of Ned Stark, decides to join the Night's Watch after his father leaves Winterfell, and defend the realms of men against whatever foes lie Beyond the Wall. For some eight thousand years, the answer to that question has been, "Not much," but today things are different: Rangers are lost, dead men begin walking the land and creatures known as "The Others" have been sighted. And the Night's Watch, an ArmyOfThievesAndWhores, is only marginally ready to stop them...

There are eight POV characters, most of them from the Stark family: Eddard, Arya, Sansa, Bran and Catelyn Stark present the majority of the events in the Seven Kingdoms. Tyrion Lannister provides an insight into the villainous House Lannister, while Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen narrate the events beyond the Wall and across the sea respectively. Minor character Will provides the prologue.

* MysteriousParent: Jon's [[MissingMom mother is officially unknown]]. Catelyn, and even Cersei, believe Jon's mother was the late Lady Ashara Dayne. When Robert presses Ned for her identity, Ned tightly tells him that her name was Wylla and refuses to say anything more. In addition, after Ned brings baby Jon home with him to raise himself at Winterfell alongside his trueborn children and acknowledges Jon as his son, Catelyn observes Ned's protectiveness of Jon, hears rumors of who Jon's mother may be (Lady Ashara Dayne), and asks Ned for the truth of Jon's mother. This leads to the ''only'' time Ned ever scared the shit out of her when he replies Jon is ''"my blood"'' and that is ''"all (she) need(s) to know"''. This and [[spoiler: Ned's BeneathTheMask POV may suggest there's something big about Jon's biological mother]].

* SweetAndSourGrapes: A minor example in the discovery of the direwolf pups in the first chapter. Jon persuades his father Ned that they're an omen as there's one for each of his five children, which only works because he's discounted himself (despite his illegitimacy being his fundamental source of {{angst}}). Bran notices this and finds it very moving while Ned, also moved, asks Jon if he doesn't want a pup too but Jon continues to omit himself from the count for the sake of his siblings. However, as they set off, Jon discovers a pup for himself, a sixth pup in the snow -- [[TheUnfavourite a mute albino runt whose mother had possibly abandoned it]].
