Tyrion Lannister is perhaps one of the most interesting in A Game of Thrones so far. Unlike the heartbreakingly beautiful twins Jaime and Cersei, he is not really a sight to behold; he’s a midget with mismatched eyes, much like a stray cat that found a way inside a rich man’s mansion.
But what makes him interesting is that despite everything that he is deprived of, he does not appear as a pitiful character. He follows the quote above, and survives because of it. His self-deprecatory humor, wit, and sarcasm adds a layer to his characterization, and beneath all of this is a sad story of a man who once fell in love. :’(
I’m not done with the book at the moment because of how busy I got recently, but so far he’s my favorite Lannister. I’m having a little change of heart about Cersei after I rewatched the series…I’m beginning to actually like her.
More when I finished the book. :p
