* WouldHurtAChild: King Robert hates the Lannister family with a passion, [[GreyAndGrayMorality enough to]] have his mooks pull a small child, kicking and screaming out from under her bed, and execute her, because he didn't want her to spread her legs and produce more Lannisters.

* HonorBeforeReason: Good God, Eddard Stark might as well be the poster child for this trope. His modest and stubborn humility and insistence on feudal obligation might fly in the north, but in doesn't work so well in King's Landing.

After the death of Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, King Robert Baratheon travels to the North to offer the position of Hand to Eddard Stark, Warden of the North and his most trusted friend. When Eddard receives a letter from his wife Catelyn's sister, claiming that Jon Arryn was murdered by House Lannister (the Queen's family), Eddard decides to become Hand of the King to protect Robert's life and the realm, even after an [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident accident]] leaves his son Bran paralyzed from the waist down. Thus, Eddard travels to the South with his daughters, Arya and Sansa Stark. Three of his sons, Robb, Bran and Rickon, are left at Winterfell and he allows his illegitimate son Jon Snow to go with [[CoolUncle Benjen Stark]], his brother, to the Night's Watch.

* Honourbound Eddard Stark in the King's treacherous court trying to unravel the machinations behind Jon Arryn's death and House Lannister's motives. Meanwhile, his wife Catelyn foils a murder attempt on the already-crippled Bran, and ends up going after Tyrion Lannister, the queen's dwarf brother known as "the Imp," whom she believes is responsible...
* Across the sea, Viserys Targaryen, last heir of the Targaryen dynasty who fled after the successful rebellion fifteen years ago, is plotting vengeance against the Usurper Baratheon who stole the throne and killed his family. To achieve that, he marries his sister Daenerys to a clan of [[FantasyCounterpartCulture Mongols]] known as the Dothraki, expecting an army in return. Viserys is a RoyalBrat, but things are a bit different with Daenerys...
* Jon Snow, [[HeroicBastard 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 and Jon Snow narrates the events beyond the Wall after the Stark family is separated early in the narrative. Meanwhile, Tyrion Lannister provides an insight into the villainous House Lannister while Daenerys Targaryen narrates the events across the sea. Minor character, Will, provides this book's prologue.

* ShellShockedVeteran: The Rebellion's effects are visible in Ned's POV, particularly when the deaths of Rhaegar's family and Lyanna are concerned. Ned's recurring nightmares and obsessive flashbacks - mostly concerning Lyanna, the Tower of Joy and the Sack of King's Landing, his avoidance tendency towards anything that would recall those events - which strongly suggest he suffers from PTSD. Along with his Honor Before Reason, it has a strong influence on his his decision-making, as he tries hard to avoid every possible bloodshed and subconsciously avoid having to re-experience the traumatic days that shaped him.
* ShooTheDog: Arya had to throw rocks to force Nymeria to go away because she knew Joffrey wouldn't let her "insult" to him go so easily.

* 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}}) so his siblings can have a direwolf each. Bran notices this and finds it very moving while Ned, also moved, asks Jon if he doesn't want a pup too but Jon omits himself from the count again 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]].

* SelectiveObliviousness: Sansa refuses to see [[BeautyIsBad Joffrey]] as anything but noble and gallant, and Cersei as TheHighQueen, even after witnessing the former maliciously bully and threaten to kill an innocent peasant boy for sport, her brother being crippled when Jaime Lannister pushes him out a window, and the order for Sansa's wolf butchered for something Arya's wolf (rightly) did. [[spoiler: It takes [[TheCaligula Joffrey]] ordering her father's execution for her to finally see their true colors.]]
