* YourCheatingHeart: He's deeply in love with his wife, but he does admit he's slept with other women.


* NonActionGuy: Davos is not a warrior, and feels absurd whenever he is made to dress up in armor like Stannis's other knights, as he feels much more comfortable on a ship.

* NonActionGuy: Davos is not a warrior, and feels absurd whenever he is made to dress up in sword and armor like Stannis's other knights, as he feels does not know how to use them and would be much more comfortable useful on a ship.

* LuxuryPrisonSuite: Stays in one while being held for execution by Wyman Manderly. To his surprise, his jailers bring him rich food and minor requests such as paper, quills, and wood for his fire. [[spoiler:This is because Wyman actually has no intention of executing him, and is in fact willing to listen to him and declare for Stannis, with one catch: first, Davos has to find and bring back [[RightfulKingReturns Rickon Stark.]] [[DeathWorld From Skagos.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* IconicItem: His bag of fingerbones that he wears on a cord around his neck, which he considers lucky since those bones are what bought him a title, lands, a keep and a better future for himself and his sons. He loses the bag in the battle at Blackwater Bay, but still has a habit of touching the spot where they used to be.


* BrutalHonesty: He never sweetens his words, even in situations where it would benefit him. This blunt honesty is actually why Stannis values him.

Added DiffLines:

* RousingSpeech: Davos delivers a very passionate one for Stannis Baratheon's cause in ''A Dance With Dragons''.
-->''"Death," he heard himself say, "there will be death, aye. Your lordship lost a son at the Red Wedding. I lost four upon the Blackwater. And why? Because the Lannisters stole the throne. Go to King's Landing and look on Tommen with your own eyes, if you doubt me. A blind man could see it. What does Stannis offer you? Vengeance. Vengeance for my sons and yours, for your husbands and your fathers and your brothers. Vengeance for your murdered lord, your murdered king, your butchered princes. Vengeance!"''

*YouAreInCommandNow: Seems House Seaworth will now rule over the Rainwood and the noble houses seated there.

* BookDumb: Coming from one of the poorest districts of King's Landing, Davos never had any education but still has quite a keen mind, is very observant, and provides astute advice to Stannis. He eventually does learn to read, which enhances his advisory capabilities.



** Becomes slightly less sane in A Storm of Swords after his family died, trying to murder Melisandre for the death of his sons, which she did not and could not have had any part in. He bounces back from that, though, and is back to his old self halfway through the book. He also tends to ignore and dismiss Stannis's faults in certain situations, which blinds him to the truth at points. He's still the most sane man on Dragonstone, though.

* WouldntHurtAChild: Ish. Deliberately going out of your way to hurt or kill kids ''unnecessarily'', let alone unlawfully, might even approach the closest to a BerserkButton he has, as he [[spoiler: went against Stannis to prevent it, knowing the possible consequences.]] Cutting down a young squire in the middle of battle or hanging a young thief (or offering them the Wall) probably gets his KnightInSourArmor acceptance that such things happen when those are normal results for what the child is found doing: [[spoiler: burning an innocent kid alive simply for Blood Magic and expediency? That's way too much.]]
