Dungeons and Dragons alignments for Game of Thrones characters

Looks like I can't leave Game of Thrones alone. At io9, George Dvorsky asks What if Game of Thrones characters had Dungeons & Dragons alignments? He manages to come up with a major character for each of the nine alignments. It's not bad, but the commenters have issues with it. To argue his point, Raoul Raoul posted the following image.

I think Raoul Ruoul comes closer to the truth than Dvorsky.

I don't need to post any videos to conform to the theme of play, but I will anyway. At least this time, I don't need lyrics.


  1. Hmm. I would've put Tyrion at Neutral Good, and I'm not sure I'd give Cersei or Littlefinger an Evil alignment. Cersei seems more Chaotic Neutral to me, particularly the "amoral, selfish asshole" subtype of Chaotic Neutral. I have no idea where to put Littlefinger.

    Brienne of Tarth, my favorite character, is obviously Lawful Good.

    Jaime Lannister changes about midway through the series so far ... on the Good/Evil axis he moves more toward Good, although I don't know that he changes much on Law/Chaos.

    Definitely agree that Varys is Lawful Neutral. I'd also say that Doran Martell is a good example of that rather tricky alignment. (At least, *I* find it hard to figure out.)

    1. The thing about this table is that it's entirely for the first season. Later seasons, which feature different characters as well as showing character development of the survivors from the first season (Poor Ned Stark--even without reading the books, the casting of Sean Bean should have been a giveaway that he'd die at the end of the first book) result in alignment charts by the same creators as this one that look more like what you think. I should post them in a follow up.

    2. I followed up on Lindsay's comments in Game of Thrones D&D character alignment charts, which show that she identified the alignment of at least one character she named correctly. Also, this entry was the top post of 2012. It's currently the eighth most popular entry in the history of the blog.
