As always suggestions on how to expand and improve this portal, would be much appreciated. Mor 09:34, 9 September 2011 (CDT)


At the moment I for the most part I included popular POV characters(according to Google and some surveys) and grouped them. But I still haven't finished filling up the list, I am intrested to know which characters you want to see there. Mor 09:34, 9 September 2011 (CDT)

You Still do not have Icons for Bran and Sam, 2 primary pov characters. Ser Ash the Red 05:14, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

I dont want the thumbs to be an exact copy of the POV table on the left, but offer offer additional interesting characters you can read about and learn more of the story. So I doubt I will add Bran, we already have too many starks on the lists, Sam might be a good choice.

Initial list of candidates, please add more options to the list
  • Bronn - People like him, I might use him as layout fodder.


we also have a lot of space here (the quotes are nice way to fill the gaps) but if you have a quality articles you worked on and wish to be included post it here.

Secondary Characters?

What's the difference between principal and secondary characters? Getting their definitions would be great. For example I would consider Brienne as a secondary character but you have her as a principal....

you are right we need to make the distinction more clear in the POV Character entry. The way I see it the principal characters are the main POVs from which the bulk of the story has been told, while the secondary are the minor chacters that are used to pad the plot, Personally I would place Brienne as secondary as well. However. I think that GRRM has made the distinction for us, all the Main POV's chapter called after them, while the secondary ones has various names i.e. 'The Prophet' 'The Captain of Guards' and judging by the Table of contents they were all introduced since A Feast for Crows. --Mor 00:24, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Nitpick; secondary characters are ONLY known with various names (Arya and Sansa have an alias as well) Scafloc 10:42, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

New Layout

I want to expand the portal to include more characters than it is. Any ideas or references to other wikis that done it right? --Mor 13:35, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Lets be honest the current design suck, it looks pretty and was nice start, but a Characters portal should be about the characters. Here is my preliminarily list of characters that I want to include other than the POV.

a long list, which present a few problems, as I want the portal to be something more than then just a long list of characters. Any thoughts/reference's on how to achieve that?

  • Web of thrones, Fan created character map, not the direction I was aiming to(beside being out of my wheel house, in regard to the required skill) but a very interesting idea none the less. Maybe we might use similar groups? --Mor 16:58, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
