* {{Expy}}: Several characters, though very well fleshed out, may remind players of certain figures in the books.
** Ser Mors Westford is a noble [[TheBeastMaster skinchanger]] more concerned with upholding his duties as a Sworn Brother than others are. However, Mors is a much more brutal character than Jon Snow ever was, and has lived a much fuller life. Personality-wise, he has much more in common with Ned Stark, whose sense of honor regularly causes suffering for himself [[spoiler: and his family.]]
** Ser Alester Sarwyck invites comparisons to other Red Priests, but he has much more in common with [[spoiler: Jon Connington, as both are disgraced exiles haunted by failures during Robert's Rebellion. Both even become heavily involved in pro-Targaryen conspiracies. Connington's armor can even be bought from Alester's personal steward.]]
** Ser Valarr Hill comes off at first as a smarter Ser Gregor Clegane, being a psychotic knight who serves the Lannisters. His VA and articulate dialogue only make his actions more horrific. [[spoiler:Eventually revealed to be even more dangerous than the Mountain, as Riverspring and Castlewood learn to their dismay when Valarr shows off his [[BlackMagic other abilities]].]]
** Lord Arwood Harlton has a great deal in common with [[spoiler: Prince Doran Martell. Both are embittered nobles conspiring to take vengeance for wrongs committed during the Rebellion. When confronted though, he declares he is fighting for the Realm itself, and is hoping to set up a proper ruler, much like Varys.]]
** Varys, amusingly enough, has much in common with [[spoiler: Lemony Snickett. He narrates the story, despite being a major character. At one point, he breaks the fourth wall to ask the player to make a choice. In the last scene, he refers to the game's plot as a sad tale.]] He's still Varys though.
** Jeyne Greystone may remind viewers of [[spoiler: Daenerys Targaryen. She, however, is arguably the most anti-Targaryen character in the game, and would rather live in a cottage than a palace.]]

** BiggerBad: Lord Tywin Lannister. [[TheGhost Never actually appears]] in game, but it is his power and influence that grants Ser Valarr the manpower and authority to cause our heroes so much suffering. [[spoiler: Tywin is eventually revealed to have given the infamous order that Mors joined the Night's Watch in order to avoid carrying out. He then ordered Alester and Valarr to murder Mors' family in retaliation. Though we never see him, he is ultimately responsible for almost the entire game's plot in one way or another.]]

* AmericaIsStillAColony: In the "New Wold" campaign, the players can deviate from history quite heavily, including the European colonial powers (especially Britain) keeping the United States from gaining independence.

* {{Badass}}: Many characters, especially Mors, who regularly fights off small armies singlehandely. Alester is equally badass, but is more likely to sneak through and rely on armed support.
** Ser Desmond Hardyng is specifically introduced as the [[MasterSwordsman best swordsman]] in the Riverlands. His stats agree.
** Valarr should probably have been smothered at birh, but there's no denying he's a force of nature on the battlefield.



* TheButcher: A rare heroic version. Mors's Ax-Crazy tendencies and overall {{Badass}} reputation have earned him this title.
