* GoodIsNotSoft: When compared to canon Ned, Sean's 'Not-Ned' is far more vicious and willing to engage in less then honorable actions such as torture in order to win the war.

to:

* GoodIsNotSoft: When compared to canon Ned, Sean's 'Not-Ned' is far more vicious and willing to engage in less then honorable actions such as torture in order to win the war. For instance, when Manderly forces build a scaffold just outside King's Landing to exhibit the imprisoned Jaime, he asks Roose Bolton to lend Lord Manderly a spare banner, just so Cersei knows what will happen to her brother the moment she tries something funny.

Added DiffLines:

* SpotOfTea: Sean Bean's Englishness is showing. Sean as Ned demands to have some tea very often, and it's noted by other characters as one of the differences from the real Ned.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Jossed}}: InUniverse, Sean's very annoyed by how everyone thought Jon was the son of Rhaegar and Lyanna. [[spoiler:He's actually the son of Brandon Stark and Ashara Dayne.]]


* {{Hallucinations}}: Sean suffers them while doped up. Particularly, he sees his ex-wife Georgina gloating over how she's getting his money. From his meanderings, Roose Bolton gets several names he immediately checks out, such as Qyburn and Shae, and when Sean awakes, he asks who are the Gyorgina and Gyorge he kept screaming imprecations at.
