* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', this is Petyr Baelish's backstory in a nutshell. His family keep is on the smallest of the Fingers (peninsulars on the eastern coast), technically being petty lords beholden to the Lords of the Eyrie and... they aren't exactly highly populous. Most people in the Seven Kingdoms won't ever think about them much, beyond "pirates and invasions from Essos very occasionally land there". About the most you can do on any of them is fish and look after goats or sheep. He went from ''that'' to the capital of the Riverlands (a bustling Danelaw {{Expy}} and trade hub), [[BigFancyCastle Riverrun]], and back though no real fault of his own as a kid, thanks to a debt Lord Hoster Tully felt he owed Petyr's father. There, the young boy rubbed shoulders with the likes of Tullys and Lannisters -- and received his rather mean-spirited nickname, to boot. However, Hoster withdrew Petyr's invite the minute he realised just how [[MadLove badly smitten]] [[{{Yandere}} Lysa]] was with the young nobody from a fishing hamlet not even beholden to Riverrun. No wonder {{MeaningfulName Littlefinger]] has issues.
