From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Arya Stark is the youngest daughter and third born child of Lord Eddard Stark and Lady Catelyn Tully. She has five siblings: brothers Robb, Bran and Rickon, sister Sansa, and half-brother Jon Snow. Like her siblings, Arya takes care of a direwolf pup, whom she names Nymeria, after the great warrior queen of the Rhoynar.
At the age of nine, Arya moves with her father and sister to King's Landing. Training under Syrio Forel to learn swordsmanship, Arya owns her own blade, Needle, a gift from Jon. When her father is arrested, she flees the Lannisters, using all her training had taught her. Arya escapes King's Landing and starts the journey north, hoping to reach the rest of her family at Winterfell. The riverlands, which she needs to cross first, are heavily involved in the War of the Five Kings, and Arya finds herself captured several times. Witnessing the harsh situations in the war-torn riverlands, Arya's fierce personality leads to her making a "death list", which she calls a prayer. She always ends the prayer with the phrase valar morghulis.
Arya is thusfar the only character to have a POV in every book, and author George R.R. Martin has stated that he could write an entire novel on Arya's adventures alone. Read more...
