Faith Militant Sparrows

In Game of Thrones, the Faith Militant is the military order of the Faith of the Seven, made up of a zealous movement of followers called the Sparrows. Led by the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) and Septa Unella, and including the reformed Ser Lancel Lannister (Eugene Simon), they take brutal measures to enforce their extremist views.

Sansa Stark

In Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is elder sister to Arya and half-siblings with Jon Snow. She suffers trials and tribulations, but under the protection (or perhaps manipulation) of Littlefinger, learns to survive. Her dark-haired, feathered look reflects this transformation.

Unella the Shame Nun

Unella the Shame Nun

In Game of Thrones, Unella (Hannah Waddingham) is a Septa and devotee to the High Sparrow. After Cersei Lannister confesses her crimes, Unella strips her naked and forces her to walk through the jeering crowds to return to the Red Keep. As if that wasn’t humiliating enough, she follows closely behind while ringing a bell and chanting “shame, shame, shame”, earning the nickname the “Shame Nun”.

Shae

Shae

In Game of Thrones, Shae of Lorath (Sibel Kekilli) is a prostitute who becomes involved with Tyrion Lannister. As with all relationships, theirs has its ups and downs like having to hide from Tyrion’s father who wants to kill her, having to avoid Cersei Lannister who is trying to turn her against Tyrion, and having to compete for Tyrion’s attention after he’s forced to marry.

Oberyn Martell

Oberyn Martell

Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), better known as the Red Viper, travels to King’s Landing with his paramour Ellaria Sand to seek justice for his sister’s murder. He’s going to need both his quick wit and quick combat skills to bring down The Mountain.

Ellaria Sand

Ellaria Sand

In Game of Thrones, Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) is Oberyn Martell’s long-term lover. That makes her the luckiest person in Westeros, female or male.

Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) doesn’t let the fact that she’s a woman stop her from vying for the throne in Game of Thrones. She manipulates the men around her and when they no longer serve useful or pose a threat, she has no problem disposing of them. She has a special love for her family, except for her younger brother Tyrion Lannister, who she is constantly plotting against.

Missandei

Missandei

Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) was enslaved as a young girl and trained as a translator who’s skilled at speaking 19 different languages. She is freed by Daenerys Targaryen and later serves as her trusted handmaiden.

Ygritte

Ygritte

In Game of Thrones, Ygritte (Rose Leslie) is a wildling from the north with fiery red hair and an even more fiery personality. She never passes up an opportunity to needle Jon Snow, constantly reminding him how he knows nothing.

Arya Stark

Arya Stark

In Game of Thrones, Arya (Maisie Williams) is the youngest daughter of House Stark. She’s the exact opposite of her older sister Sansa: carefree, resourceful, and a bit of a tomboy. A student of Syrio, she certainly knows how to use Needle.
