This page is specifically for the Loads and Loads of Characters of the television series Game of Thrones. As the series spans numerous seasons, there may be unmarked spoilers. Characters are listed by the House that they serve as of the latest episode. A chart of all the different families, including actor names and pictures, can be found here.

Be mindful of background information from the original books, which serves to illustrate connections to the source material or differences there-in. This information may not be canon to the television series unless confirmed by on-screen dialogue or Blu-ray extras, and the show may take a different course that invalidates it. Any such notes will be marked with "From the books..." as a labelnote.

The character sheet for the books is here. Tropes specific to the books should go there; keep in mind there are 15 times more characters there.
