* PapaWolf: He ferociously defended his legitimised bastard children against Rhaenyra after the actions of the Two Betrayers, insisting Addam and Alyn were loyal. When Aegon threatened to execute his granddaughter Baela if [[IWillPunishYourFriendForYourFailure Alyn failed to stop the Braavosi fleet transporting forces loyal to Rhaenyra from the Vale to assault King's Landing]], Corlys responded by conspiring with Larys Strong to have Aegon assassinated within the hour.

Added DiffLines:

* UriahGambit: Unwin Peake despatched Alyn on what he hoped would be one of these, sending him to deal with Dalton Greyjoy when the Ironborn refused to cease attacking the coast of the Westerlands after the end of the Dance. Unfortunately for Unwin, [[DidntSeeThatComing Dalton was murdered in his sleep by one of his concubines]], and Alyn's adventures en route to and from the Iron Islands only ended up garnering him more prestige at court.


* OnlySaneMan: The only one of Rhaenyra's followers to speak in defense of Addam, Alyn and Nettles when Rhaenyra wants them arrested for being bastards - bastards being regarded as traitors by nature and Rhaenyra having been recently betrayed by two dragonseed bastards.

Added DiffLines:

* MamaBear: After Maegor's fall, Alyssa wanted any prisoners who'd served his regime executed for their part in helping Maegor usurp and kill her sons. While Jaehaerys refused to execute all the prisoners, he did, as a concession to his mother, have anyone who helped Tyanna torture Viserys to death executed. When presented with the severed heads and hands of those responsible, Alyssa declared herself well pleased with the grisly tokens.


* AllGaysArePedophiles: Ser Criston Cole alleged that young boys were not safe around him. No proof of this is ever given, and it appears to be slander Ser Criston made up because of Laenor's sexuality.
