* [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Reasonable Authority Figure]]: Well he prefers to be though he has no issue with being feared.

----
! House Brightflame
!! King Baelor Brightflame
----
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Parents]]: His Father was a brute of a man by all accounts its a wonder Baelor ended up as good natured as he did. [[spoiler: He may or may not have killed his old man but don't expect people to be looking into it too much.]]
* [[AllThereInTheManual All There in The Manual]]: A lot of his backstory before we first meet him can be explored a bit more on [[spoiler: Daerons]]bio on Ak Realm
* [[ArchEnemy Arch-Enemy]]: Aegon is this for him. He always seeks to taunt the Younger King and when he sees him in battle he rides out to kill him himself
* [[AssKickingEqualsAuthority AssKicking Equals Authority]]: Everything he earned was because he was better then the guy who initially had it.
* {{Badass}}: He was the leader of a mercenary company and a skilled swordfighter in the beginning of the series. He goes on to become a King and leads strategic victories over some of the most skilled generals in Westeros.
* [[BloodKnight Blood Knight]]: Does not shy away from a battle. Hell he prefers one.
* [[BrutalHonesty Brutal Honesty]]: Is very upfront with his opinions, once dismissing a bard in comparison to James Lail...Right in front of the bard.
* [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatist]]: He first attacks Stannis's lands while the King is out fighting and because he's the Weakest of the Kings in Westeros lands and numbers wise. He also gets Aegon to attack early to weaken the Stormlands and make it easier to invade the mainlands.
* [[CreateYourOwnVillain Create Your Own Villain]]: He sent Daeron to goad Aegon into attacking Westeros early to weaken some of the stronger provinces. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor Aegon proceeds to be the biggest threat throughout Season 1.]]
* [[spoiler: [[DecoyProtagonist Decoy Protagonist]]: Killed early on in Season 2 After spending the entire series before that as the lead protagonist.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Nothing will stop him from taking back the Iron Throne
* {{Expy}}: Of Aegon the Conqueror: Both men attacked start there invasion of Westeros with less men then the armies there fighting. Aegon was able to balance this out with his dragons, Baelor balances it out by making them weaken each other and picking up the pieces. Both have two siblings to aid them, though in Aegons case its two sisters he's married to while for Baelor its his brother and sister and he doesn't marry. Both are known for being cruel to those who oppose them and kind to those who follow them and both seek to take all Seven Kingdoms and unite them under one banner. [[spoiler: More tragically they both never see this realized. Aegon takes six of the seven Kingdoms but is defeated by Dorne and dies long before Dorne joins the fold. Baelor never loses a war but a fatal battle kills him before he can finish the job.]]
* [[GoodIsNotSoft Good Is Not Soft]]: Hes friendly enough, is honorable wherever he can afford to be and is willing to negotiate with others. But at the same time he's no pushover and is capable of some backhanded tactics if it means he gets what he wants.
* [[TheGoodKing The Good King]]: Well loved by his subjects and sought to be a fair ruler [[spoiler: Even in in death he's remembered fondly with Daeron wishing he were still the King rather then him.]]
* [[TheHero The Hero]]
* [[spoiler: [[TheHeroDies The Hero Dies]]: Hes killed before he can unite the Seven Kingdoms like he so badly wanted, if it wasn't for the fact that he had taken Kings Landing and his brother followed in his footsteps, it would be a tragic [[ShaggyDogStory Shaggy Dog Story]].]]
* [[HeroesPreferSwords Heroes Prefer Swords]]: Played with. He definitely prefers swords but occasionally will use the mace 'Coldbringer' if he feels like it.
* [[HistoryRepeatsItself History Repeats Itself]]: Hes very aware of the {{Irony}} of him starting his invasion of the Mainlands from Dragonstone Like Aegon the Conqueror before him.
* [[IShallTauntYou I Shall Taunt You]]: Most of his chivalry goes out the window when Aegon's involved. He treats the Targeyean with no respect and loves referring to him as 'Baby Aegon'.
* [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal Killed Off For Real]]: in a battle against Daven Lannister he's knocked off his horse and swarmed by infantry who eventually overpower him.]]
* [[LeeroyJenkins Leeroy Jenkins]]: Played with as this is far from his only strategy, though when he sees an opportunity for Glory expect him to run in for it regardless of the risk [[spoiler: And boy are there risks...]]
* [[OhCrap Oh Crap]]: when he's [[spoiler: knocked off his horse and again when he realizes he's surrounded by the enemy on the battlefield.]]
* [[WalkingSpoiler Walking Spoiler]]: [[spoiler: his death happens so fast in season 2 that its hard to discuss it without spoiling Baelor's fate.]]

* [[TheCasanova The Casanova]]: [[AllThereInTheManual If his bios anything to go by]] He has quite a few illegitimate sons running around Essos [[spoiler: The problem becomes getting married so he can father a legitimate one which is a big part of Season 2.]]
* [[spoiler: [[ContrastingSequelMainCharacter Contrasting Sequel Main Character]]: Not necessarily sequel but he's the main protagonist of Season 2 after Baelors death. While he's about as much of a [[BloodKnight Blood Knight]] as his brother and can kick just as much ass, he's also more doubtful of himself then his brother was, has a reputation as a flirt to Baelors more [[CelibateHero Celibate]] nature and [[RomanceArc spends a good deal of time trying to pick a bride]] albeit for [[SuccessionCrisis pragmatic reasons]].
* {{Determinator}}
* [[ForgivenButNotForgotten Forgiven But Not Forgotten]]: He's angry at the Kingsguard [[spoiler: For there failure in the battle Near Riverrun]] but still lets them keep there titles and help him, though its clear the failure is remembered.
* [[HeroicBsod Heroic BSOD]]: Suffers one when [[spoiler: Baelor is killed]] though he pushes through it
* [[IncestIsRelative Incest Is Relative]]: He seriously considers [[spoiler: marrying Rhaneys, and even claiming his other option would be a loveless marriage Implying marrying his sister would be for love. He doesn't follow through on it though.]]
* [[TheLancer The Lancer]]: To his brother until Gaerion is declared Hand of the King.
* [[LargeHam Large Ham]]
* [[ReallyGetsAround Really Gets Around]]: He left behind a lot of bastards in Essos, he's cleaned up his act for the most part.
* [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Roaring Rampage of Revenge]]: Goes on a warpath after [[spoiler: His brothers death]] and the seven help you if you get in his way!
* [[WalkingSpoiler Walking Spoiler]]: Even more so then his brother!
----
!! Princess Rhaenys Brightflame
----
* [[ActionGirl Action Girl]]: Is the only Female Brightflame but still a capable soldier right alongside her brothers.
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler: What does she do when Baelor is killed and Daeron is injured in a battle?]] Pull herself together and lead the remaining men to victory of course!
* [[HeroesPreferSwords Heroes Prefer Swords]]: Subverted. She can use one well enough but she prefers her bow to any blade and leads the Dragons Teeth in battle.
* [[TheNarrator The Narrator]]: she's the one who introduces all Subscriber Knights in the videos and does the introduction for episode 4 of Season 2 since [[spoiler: Both Brothers are out of commission. [[KilledOffForReal One for good]].]]
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: She doesn't get into trouble as much as her brothers.
* [[TheStoic The Stoic]]: Is very calm and reserved, especially when compared to her [[LargeHam Hammy]] brothers and usually responds with flirts and jokes she doesn't like with either scowls or [[GroinAttack Groin Attacks]].
** [[NotSoStoic Not So Stoic]]: Despite keeping herself under control during the battle [[spoiler: She isn't unfazed by her brothers death.]]
* [[SmurfettePrinciple Smurfette Principle]]: She's the only Prominent female in the series. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] given the world she lives in.
----
! Sub Knights and Sub Lords
!! James Lail
----
* [[AnArmAndALeg An Arm and A Leg]]: Loses some fingers fighting The Golden Company.
* [[TheAtoner The Atoner]]: Sees House Brightflame as a chance restore glory to his family name and [[spoiler: Protects Daeron hoping to make amends for not saving Baelor.]]
* {{Badass}}: As expected from someone named a member of the Kingsguard.
* [[BodyguardingABadass Bodyguarding A Badass]]: As a member of the Kingsguard he protects the King. Not that the King is helpless without them.
* [[FailureHero Failure Hero]]: He sees himself as this during his second [[HeroicBsod Heroic BSOD]] he eventually recovers but not without some lingering doubts
* [[HeroicBsod Heroic BSOD]]: He suffers a brief one when he loses his fingers and feels he cant be Baelor's [[WarriorPoet Songbird]] anymore. Baelor himself snaps him out of it. His second his harder to shake off [[spoiler: being the death of the King he swore to protect and all. Even admitting he deserved death for said failure!]]
* [[spoiler: [[ILetGwenStacyDie I Let Baelor Brightflame die]]: And he's not happy about it.]]
* [[InsultBackfire Insult Backfire]]: Many called him Songbird to mock him. He took the nickname in stride.
* [[NiceGuy Nice Guy]]
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Guy]]: He's the one Baelor sends to negotiate if he can. Hes good enough to convince Tywin Lannister to listen to him.
* [[SoleSurvivor Sole Survior]]: Of House Lail and because of he's sworn himself to the Kingsguard he wont be fathering any descendants anytime soon.
* [[UndyingLoyalty Undying Loyalty]]: To House Brightflame.

----
!! Gaerion Doryerion
* [[BadassBeard Badass Beard]]: Sports one
* [[CassandraTruth Cassandra Truth]]: He tried to warn Valyria about the Dothraki Horde and was exiled for his troubles. Then the Dothraki did everything he said they would.
* [[TheExile The Exile]]: Was a respected member in Valyria until his rivals manipulated his actions to brand him a traitor and he flees before he's arrested. Given how the Dothraki take all of there land shortly afterwards its safe to say Gaerion got the better outcome.
* [[TheLancer The Lancer]]: He's named the Hand of the King officially making him this.
* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened To The Mouse?]]: A sad case of [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Real Life Writes the Plot]] he's pretty much out of focus and takes no part in the small council after for one reason or another the Sub he was honoring stopped participating in the series.
----
!! Richard Lick
* {{Badass}}: His title as a member of the Kingsguard speaks for himself.
*[[BadassFamily Badass Family]]: The key reason House Lick was tolerated for its hard stance on crime was the fact that its House produced some of the North's greatest warriors. Richard keeps this from being an [[InformedAbility Informed Ability]].
* [[HonorBeforeReason Honor Before Reason]]: His houses destruction was a case of there current Lord refusing to listen to the Starks when he was under siege by the Northern Houses. Granted The Karstark Lord he executed was given more then enough chances even by House Lick's standards [[GrayAndGreyMorality making the issue a bit more complex then one would think.]]
* [[SoleSurvivor Sole Survivor]]: Of House Lick. Initially sent to the Wall where his Line would have ended he was saved by the last few loyal men of his house who trained him and sent him off to serve a King who can restore them. Though like James Lail his line will still likely end with him given his [[CelibateHero oath as a Kingsguard.]]
----
!! Jory Redwater
* [[ArrangedMarriage Arranged Marriage]]: He was the subject of one when the Riverlands were pushed to the North by the Westerlands and the Iron Islands. Though seeing as how he takes his wife with him when he leaves to Join House Brightflame its not without love. And while he's not opposed to these kinds of marriages in general he wont let any of his family be forced into one they oppose.
* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy]]: He's very sure of himself in a fight, especially when he's drunk. Though given his skills he isn't without reason to be.
* {{Badass}}: Baelor once said Jory might be the greatest fighter in his army. Expected from Someone whos seen combat from a young age.
* [[TheBigGuy The Big Guy]]: Was this when he initially joined.
* [[BloodKnight Blood Knight]]: He gets in the thick of battle and if he's not covered in his enemies blood, he had an off day.
* [[ConspiracyTheorist Conspiracy Theroist]]: He doesn't trust the Starkwoods, He thought the Whents were planning something (He was right on that end) And he started a war with the Darkstars and Shamus(The Master of Coin) because he thought they were traitors.
* [[DefectorFromDecadence Defector From Decadence]]: His defection from the North-Riverlands, there poor decisions and the loss of the entire Riverlands made start to contact Baelor through letters and flee the minute an opportunity arrived.
* [[FromNobodyToNightmare From Nobody To Nightmare]]: He went from a minor Knight with some meager holdings to the wartime hand of the King with an army at his back.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni Blue Oni]]: The Red to Robin's Blue.
*[[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight Screw The Rules I'm Doing Whats Right!]]: His response when he promises to end the Redwater-Starkwood wedding on the grounds that Sophia doesn't want to marry Osric.
* [[UnknownRival Unknown Rival]]: The Whents loath the Redwaters and seek there destruction. The Redwaters mostly see them as a nuisance.
----
!! Edric Royston
* [[TheAtoner The Atoner]]: He does his best to protect [[spoiler: Daeron]] to make up for [[spoiler: not being able to save Baelor]]
* {{Badass}}: He wasn't content with just being a member of the Kingsguard. He's the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard!
* [[BlingOfWar Bling of War]]: Not only gifted with the armor of a Kingsguard but also with the Valaryian steel sword Heartsbane.
* [[CelibateHero Celibate Hero]]: As his oaths demands, expected even more from him given his status as the Lord Commander.
* [[CoolSword Cool Sword]]: He was given Heartsbane after it was pried from the Tarly's
* [[HeterosexualLifePartners Heterosexual Life Partners]]: With Ser Kellan. His death and The Vales decision not to take action was what inspired Edric to take up arms with House Brightflame instead.
* [[HumbleHero Humble Hero]]: Not during his time in the Vale but as a member of the Kingsguard. In the same vein of James Lail and Richard Lick he's taken his vows and usually brushes off any praise given to him. Whats more astounding for Edric is how young is he is taking this route as Lord Commander.
* [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Roaring Rampage of Revenge]]: Kellens death sets him on one that brings him to House Brightflame [[spoiler: Baelors death sets him on another one right alongside King Daeron.]] Likely earned him the title of Lord Commander.
* [[UndyingLoyalty Undying Loyalty]]: To House Brightflame.
