However, it also gave him a really bad reputation because he was a member of the Kingsguard, who were supposed to ''defend'' the king with their lives. This has made the people see him as a man who will quickly change his loyalty when it suits him. In the books, his other nicknames are Oathbreaker and the Young Lion.

** The [[LizardFolk Argonians]] are on both the receiving and giving ends of this. The Argonians get several of these from the other races, most of them derogatory, such as Lizard Men and just plain "Lizards." [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent The word "filthy" often precedes them]]. The Argonians themselves often refer to the other races as "landstriders" (more politely) or "prey" (in a more negative sense).
