Martin's world". Martin himself has singled out Tyrion as his favorite character in the series. I think his wit is appealing.
He gets off a lot of good iconoclastic, cynical one-liners, and those are fun to write. He's also a very gray character.
All my characters are gray to a greater or lesser extent, but Tyrion is perhaps the deepest shade of gray, with the black and white in him most thoroughly mixed, and I find that very appealing.
I've always liked gray characters more than black-and-white characters I look for ways to make my characters real and to make them human, characters who have good and bad, noble and selfish, well-mixed in their natures.
Yes, I do certainly want people to think about the characters, and not just react with a knee-jerk.
I read too much fiction myself in which you encounter characters who are very stereotyped. They're heroic-hero and dastardly-villain, and they're completely black or completely white.
And that's boring, so far as I'm concerned. He is one of a handful of "sorely missed" major characters that do not appear in 's A Feast for Crows ,  but on his website in Martin released a sample chapter featuring Tyrion from his next novel A Dance with Dragons.
As A Game of Thrones begins, Tyrion is a witty, hedonistic curiosity, protected by his family status but still the object of subtle derision.
He is perhaps the most intelligent member of his family but is consistently underestimated and marginalized. Initially he is the one Lannister remotely sympathetic to the Starks but he is soon caught in the middle of the conflict between the two Houses.
In A Clash of Kings , Tyrion relishes his new power but finds that his sincere efforts to stabilize his nephew Joffrey 's rule are being undermined and thwarted by the misguided and self-serving machinations of everyone around him.
He plots to nullify the counterproductive whims of Joffrey and Cersei but the "much-maligned dwarf" finds himself "teetering between order and disaster as he tries to keep the Lannisters from losing absolutely everything".
Wagner calls it a "defining moment" when Tyrion comments that he is all that keeps chaos from overwhelming the family and population who both despise him.
In A Storm of Swords , Tywin reclaims the office of Hand of the King and gives Tyrion the seemingly-impossible task of reforming the royal finances.
Tyrion's previous efforts, crucial in keeping Joffrey in power and saving King's Landing from invasion are all but forgotten.
Joffrey, emboldened by Tywin's return, publicly humiliates Tyrion; when Joffrey is murdered, everyone eagerly points the finger at Tyrion.
Cersei does everything in her power to assure that he is declared guilty at trial. Innocent but condemned to death and hated more than ever, Tyrion takes a dark turn.
Martin explains:. He's lost his position in House Lannister, he's lost his position in court, he's lost all of his gold — which is the one thing that's kind of sustained him throughout his life He's so hurt that he wants to hurt other people And I don't think he knows what he's gonna say or do when he gets up there but he — some part of him feels compelled to do it.
And of course then we find Shae there, that's an additional shock to him, an additional knife in his belly. I think sometimes people just get pushed too far, sometimes people break.
And I think Tyrion has reached his point. He's been through hell, he's faced death over and over again, and he's been betrayed, as he sees it, by all the people that he's tried to take care of, that he's tried to win the approval of.
He's been trying to win his father's approval all his life. Finding his former lover Shae in his father's bed, Tyrion strangles her. Confronting Tywin with a crossbow soon after, he murders him too.
The author continues, "He's furious at Lord Tywin because he found out the truth about his first wife and what happened to her, and Lord Tywin is convinced that since he doesn't love Tyrion, then no one can possibly love Tyrion.
Tywin has always taught his son that you must follow through on your threats if you are defied, so when he fails to heed Tyrion's warning, the dwarf kills him.
Tywin was his father and that will continue to haunt him, probably for the rest of his life," says the author. With Shae, it's a much more deliberate and in some ways a crueler thing.
It's not the action of a second, because he's strangling her slowly and she's fighting, trying to get free. He could let go at any time.
But his anger and his sense of betrayal is so strong that he doesn't stop until it's done and that's probably the blackest deed that he's ever done.
It's the great crime of his soul along with what he did with his first wife by abandoning her after the little demonstration Lord Tywin put on Wagner, the "warmest and most sympathetic moments" in the novel.
Tyrion accompanies King Robert Baratheon 's entourage to visit the Stark stronghold of Winterfell , and disciplines his nephew Prince Joffrey when the latter refuses to pay respect to the recently crippled Bran Stark.
For his friendship with Jon, Tyrion visits Winterfell again on the return and designs with a specialized saddle to help Bran ride a horse.
However at the Crossroad Inn, Tyrion encounters Ned's wife Catelyn , who accuses him of hiring an assassin to kill Bran and arrests him by enlisting nearby men-at-arms.
Tyrion denies the charges and demands a trial by combat , and is championed by a sellsword named Bronn , who wins the duel and secures Tyrion's freedom.
Using his wit and the promise of a reward, Tyrion wins over the mountain tribes as his personal bodyguards while on his way to the Lannister army camp.
He then participates in the Battle on the Green Fork, sent as the vanguard by his father Tywin Lannister.
Finally impressed with Tyrion's capabilities, Tywin dispatches Tyrion to the capital city King's Landing as the acting Hand of the King in an attempt to control King Joffrey and Queen Cersei 's political recklessness.
While at the camp, Tyrion beds a camp follower named Shae and takes her with him to the capital. Tyrion arrives at King's Landing and immediately recognizes the chaos created by Joffrey and Cersei's abuse of power.
Seeking to consolidate power and preserve order in the capital, Tyrion methodically identifies and removes Cersei's supporters.
Disgusted by Joffrey's behavior and Cersei's failure to control him, Tyrion openly opposes the young king and tries to keep the hostage Sansa Stark out of harm's way.
When Stannis Baratheon is marching to siege King's Landing, Tyrion masterminds the capital's defense, even personally leading a sortie that drives Stannis from the gates.
When fighting on the burning wreckage of Stannis fleet, Tyrion is attacked and grievously wounded by the Kingsguard knight Ser Mandon Moore, but is saved by his young squire Podrick Payne.
Tyrion suspects Joffrey or Cersei behind the assassination attempt, but is unable to get revenge on either.
Upon his recovery from the injury sustained at Blackwater, Tyrion finds that he has lost most of his nose , and a returned Tywin has assumed the position of Hand himself and removed Tyrion from power.
Tyrion is then appointed Master of Coin as a "reward" for his successful leadership which is really the burden of fixing the Crown's fiscal mess.
After learning of the Tyrell plot to claim Winterfell through marriage to Sansa, Tywin forces Tyrion to marry her instead.
Sympathetic to Sansa's situation, Tyrion leaves their marriage unconsummated, despite his father's orders to conceive a child with her as soon as possible.
Tyrion is also given the difficult task of hosting the visiting Dornish convoy from the hostile House Martell.
At the celebration of Joffrey's wedding to Margaery Tyrell , Joffrey openly humiliates Tyrion but later dies from poisoned wine.
Cersei promptly accuses and arrests Tyrion. His previous good deeds forgotten, Tyrion is put on trial as Cersei manipulates the proceedings to ensure a guilty verdict.
He is heartbroken to find that Shae has also turned against him and openly humiliates him in court. In his grief and anger, Tyrion demands a trial by combat , to which Cersei responds by naming the formidable Ser Gregor Clegane as her champion.
After Bronn has been bribed into not fighting for Tyrion, Prince Oberyn Martell surprisingly agrees to become Tyrion's champion so he can fight Gregor, but dies in the duel and hence Tyrion loses the trial.
Pronounced guilty, Tyrion is taken to the dungeon on death row , but a recently returned Jaime frees him with the help of spymaster Varys and eventually confesses his complicity in Tywin's ruin of Tyrion's first wife Tysha.
Furious, Tyrion swears revenge on his family for a lifetime of cruelty, falsely admits to murdering Joffrey and reveals Cersei's promiscuity in order to hurt Jaime.
Before escaping the palace, Tyrion acquires a secret passage from Varys into Tywin's chamber, and finds Shae naked in Tywin's bed.
After strangling her in a rage, Tyrion confronts and corners Tywin on the privy with a crossbow. When Tywin speaks ill of Tysha, Tyrion fatally shoots his father before fleeing Westeros in a ship organized by Varys.
Tyrion is taken to Pentos , where he finds himself under the protection of wealthy Magister Illyrio Mopatis. On Illyrio's advice, Tyrion agrees to seek out and join Aerys' surviving daughter Daenerys at Meereen and help her reclaim the Iron Throne.
He realizes that two of his traveling companions are not what they seem — one sellsword named "Griff" is Jon Connington , Crown Prince Rhaegar 's close friend and Aerys' disgraced former Hand of the King; the other teenager named "Young Griff" is claimed to be Rhaegar's supposely slain son Aegon , whom Varys allegedly had spirited away and replaced with another baby who was instead killed by Gregor Clegane during the Lannisters' sack of King's Landing.
Tyrion then uses a game of cyvasse to sabotage Illyrio's plan by persuading Young Griff abandoning the idea of alliance with Daenerys.
While stopping at the trading town Selhorys on the way to Volantis , Tyrion visits a brothel and is recognized and abducted by an exiled Jorah Mormont , who believes that delivering a Lannister to Daenerys will return himself to her good graces.
After negotiating a passage to Meereen along with a dwarf girl named Penny, their ship is disabled by a violent storm and all of them are captured and enslaved by the Yunkai'i slavers currently besieging the Meereen.
During the armistice , Tyrion and Penny are forced to perform mock jousts riding pigs in the fighting pits of Meereen, which are actually staged as a spectacle to have them eventually eaten by lions , but they are saved when Daenerys intervenes and stops the show.
When the plague of bloody flux strikes the slavers' siege camps, Tyrion engineers their escape by murdering the overseer with poisonous mushrooms , and they join the sellsword company the Second Sons, whose leader Ben Plumm knows Jorah.
In exchange for membership, Tyrion promises the company the wealth of Casterly Rock , his birthright since Tywin is dead and Jaime has renounced it to join the Kingsguard.
Tyrion quickly realizes the Yunkai'i forces are on the losing side, and attempts to convince the Second Sons to change their allegiance.
Tyrion was confirmed by Martin as a returning character in the upcoming sixth book, with two chapters currently released to the public. One chapter was read by Martin at Eastercon in April , [ citation needed ] and another one at Worldcon in August ,  the second of which was later published in the official iOS app on March 20, While the Second Sons are preparing for the battle that rages around them, news arrives that the fellow sellsword company Windblown has defected to Daenerys.
In a meeting of their officers where the Yunkish commander demands they reinforce a trebuchet under attack by Daenerys' Unsullied, Jorah kills the Yunkish messenger, and Ben Plumm declares the Second Sons will rejoin Daenerys.
Weiss had pitched the idea of adapting Martin's series for television to HBO in March , and the network secured the rights in January Not just fantasy literature — literature!
A brilliant, caustic, horny, drunken, self-flagellating mess of a man. And there was only one choice to play him.
In October , Dinklage and several other key cast members, all contracted for six seasons of the series, renegotiated their deals to include a potential seventh season and salary increases for seasons five, six, and seven.
Calling the character the "black sheep" of the Lannister family, TV Guide wrote as the show premiered in that "Tyrion sees through all the chicanery and decides the best option is to drink and bed his way through the Seven Kingdoms.
On his way back to King's Landing, Tyrion is seized by Catelyn Stark, who suspects him of having plotted to assassinate her son Bran.
Tyrion demands trial by combat, naming as his champion the sellsword Bronn, who is victorious. The two meet up with Tyrion's father Tywin, whose forces are fighting Robb Stark's army as retaliation for his capture.
Tyrion is accidentally knocked unconscious as the battle begins. Disobeying Tywin's orders, Tyrion takes the prostitute Shae with him.
During the second season, Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times wrote that "Tyrion is just about the only character developing any complexity.
Maybe even a glimmer of a conscience. He's not so keen to be made into meat, and that makes him the kind of man characters in the show and audience members alike should be investing in.
He loves good food, good conversation and a good book. Unlike the warmongering lords and knights of Westeros, but like most HBO subscribers, he would prefer to stay out of battle.
I mean, he comes from great wealth, but he's treated very poorly, so now there's a newfound respect where if somebody calls him a name, he can have them killed.
He never had that before. Tyrion definitely enjoys that part and he's trying desperately to hold onto it. He's enjoying it while it lasts 'cause he's not sure it's gonna last very long.
Tyrion destroys much of Stannis' attacking fleet with wildfire, but is almost assassinated during the battle, presumably at Joffrey's or Cersei's command.
Tyrion recovers to find himself stripped of power by his returned father, and without recognition for his heroics. Shae implores Tyrion to move to Pentos with her, but he opts to remain in Kings Landing.
Season 2 leaves Tyrion "broke, beaten, scarred for life and stripped of his power," despite having been instrumental in saving King's Landing from invasion.
The North may have calmed for now, but it won't be calm always. Tywin angrily refuses and threatens to hang Shae if she is found in his bed again, but does have Tyrion named as Master of Coin, the treasurer.
He also forces Tyrion to marry Sansa Stark against his will, though both decide not to consummate the marriage. Tyrion and Sansa begin to bond as they are both outcasts in King's Landing, until Sansa discovers that her mother Catelyn and brother Robb have been murdered as a result of Tywin's scheming.
In March , Dinklage confirmed that Season 4 would "stick fairly closely" to Tyrion's plot line in A Storm of Swords , adding that "those reversals of fortune really send [Tyrion] down the rabbit hole.
It's fueled a bit by anger towards his family, and trying to find his place in the world. You see that some people rely on drunk, funny Tyrion.
I think funny and drunk lasts only so long. He sobers up in many ways. And love is in his life [with Shae], and that causes a tremendous amount of damage — because he's vulnerable and he doesn't like to be vulnerable.
He's completely stripped of his defense mechanisms. They have a real friendship, a good brotherhood.
They look after each other. Fearing for Shae's safety, Tyrion breaks up with her and orders her to leave for Pentos.
She refuses until he calls her a whore, and declares that she cannot have his children. Joffrey is poisoned to death at his wedding feast, and Cersei immediately accuses Tyrion.
At his trial, Shae appears to testify against him, falsely claiming that Sansa refused to bed Tyrion unless he killed Joffrey. Cersei names the virtually undefeatable Gregor Clegane as her champion.
Tyrion is defended by Oberyn Martell, who believes that his sister, niece, and nephew were murdered by Gregor. Oberyn is nearly victorious, but his refusal to kill Gregor without obtaining a confession gives Gregor the opportunity to kill him, and Tyrion is sentenced to death.
Before his execution, Tyrion is released by Jaime to be smuggled out of Westeros by Varys. Tyrion decides to confront Tywin before his flight, and finds Shae in his father's bed.
Tyrion strangles her to death, and then confronts Tywin on the privy. Tyrion kills his father with a crossbow bolt, and then leaves for Pentos with Varys.
In , James Hibberd of Entertainment Weekly called Tyrion's meeting with Daenerys Targaryen Emilia Clarke an "iconic meetup" that "delighted fans, who were universally enthusiastic for once!
Tyrion realized that Varys might be right about Daenerys being the "last hope for Westeros". After her ship leaves port, the royal party is caught up in the riot of King's Landing provoked by King Joffrey.
Ser Jaime Lannister languishes in the dungeon of Riverrun , despite Tyrion's attempt to free him. Robb Stark bypasses the Golden Tooth , destroys Stafford's army in the Battle of Oxcross ,   and raids the westerlands.
Tywin is close enough to King's Landing to defend the city when he hears of Stannis's impending attack. Due to Tywin's presence, Tyrion's defensive preparations, and a new alliance with House Tyrell negotiated by Lord Petyr Baelish , the Lannisters are able to defeat Stannis in the Battle of the Blackwater ,   despite nearly suffering a rout of the gold cloaks when Cersei withdraws King Joffrey from the city walls.
Following the Blackwater, most of Stannis's bannermen declare for Joffrey, and Lord Tywin takes up rule as Hand in his own right. Within the dungeon of Riverrun, Jaime admits to Catelyn Stark that he had thrown Bran Stark from the First Keep , but he denies having sent the catspaw.
Catelyn Stark , having heard of the supposed deaths of two of her sons Bran and Rickon at the hands of the turncloak Theon Greyjoy , releases Jaime from captivity at Riverrun in an attempt to covertly exchange him for her daughters, Sansa and Arya.
Their leader, Vargo Hoat , has Zollo chop off Jaime's sword hand. Tywin refuses to appoint Tyrion as heir to Casterly Rock ,  instead making him master of coin  and wedding him to Sansa for her claim to Winterfell and denying House Tyrell the chance to wed her to Willas.
Tywin's treachery is accomplished in the wedding of Edmure Tully to Roslin Frey at the Twins , where Robb, Catelyn, and many others are murdered under guest right.
With Renly Baratheon and Robb dead, Stannis Baratheon repelled and with few followers, and the Greyjoys concentrating on the north, Lannister power is at its zenith.
When King Joffrey unexpectedly dies at his wedding feast , Cersei wrongfully accuses Tyrion of the deed. Oberyn loses, however, and Tyrion is condemned to die.
Jaime's return to the capital finds him a changed man, increasingly at odds with his family. Tywin gifts him with a Valyrian steel sword, but Jaime names it Oathkeeper and gives it to Brienne, asking her to protect the missing Sansa Stark.
During his escape, Tyrion strangles his former lover, Shae , and kills his father, Tywin, with a crossbow. Dead soldiers with bearing the colors of House Lannister have washed up on the Quiet Isle.
According to the Elder Brother , they are buried next to their enemies. Tywin Lannister 's death lingers over the realm.
Cersei resumes her regency , now over the newly-crowned Tommen I , and she sets out to prove herself a better ruler than her father.
Ignoring her father's plans, she fills the small council with her own lackeys. She offers him the position of Hand, which he declines unless he can also assume the regency.
Cersei puts out a bounty for Tyrion's head, resulting in the deaths of many innocent dwarfs throughout the Seven Kingdoms ,  but she refuses to rescind the offer for fear someone might stay his hand.
Despite Tommen's marriage to Queen Margaery Tyrell , Cersei begins to plot against the Tyrells, whom she suspects of intrigue. She gives her maid Senelle , whom she suspects of espionage, to Lord Qyburn , her master of whisperers , for his experiments in necromancy, along with the corpse of Gregor Clegane , who has died from the poisoned spear of Oberyn Martell.
To raise funds to build new dromonds , Cersei defers repayments of all crown debts,  angering the Iron Bank of Braavos and the Faith of the Seven , and she also has the High Septon chosen by Tyrion assassinated by Osney Kettleblack.
Euron Greyjoy , the new King of the Isles and the North , leads the ironborn in the taking of the Shields , outraging the Tyrells.
Cersei grants Loras his wish to take command of the siege of Dragonstone , hoping that he would rashly storm the castle to free up the Redwyne fleet.
Meanwhile, Cersei has charged Jaime with resolving Daven's siege of Riverrun and subduing the rest of the riverlands. Cersei maneuvers Margaery into being seized by the Faith for adultery and high treason.
Brienne of Tarth searches the northern crownlands and eastern riverlands for Sansa Stark. Because Brienne carries Oathkeeper and documents bearing Tommen's seal, the three travelers are accused of serving the Lannisters and are threatened with hanging.
He also visits the imprisoned Cersei, confronting her about her affair with his son, Lancel , and telling her that, regardless of her trial, her rule is at an end.
Tyrion Lannister , aided by Varys , has been smuggled to Pentos across the narrow sea. Varys's ally, Magister Illyrio Mopatis , arranges for Tyrion to travel with a misfit band to seek out Daenerys Targaryen.
At a brothel in Selhorys , Tyrion is captured by another exiled lord, Ser Jorah Mormont , who aims to return to Daenerys for his own reasons.
After the Selaesori Qhoran wrecks, they are captured and sold into slavery. Jaime brokers peace at the siege of Raventree , the last southron stronghold loyal to Robb Stark 's lost cause.
While at Pennytree he unexpectedly meets Brienne of Tarth , who tells him that he must go with her to save Sansa Stark from the Hound.
Kevan and the small council try to deal with the resurgent Faith Militant, as well as the landing of the Golden Company and Aegon Targaryen in the stormlands.
Varys and his little birds murder Pycelle and Kevan in the Grand Maester 's chambers, however. A supporter of Aegon, Varys hopes the death of the competent Lord Regent will cast suspicion between Highgarden and Casterly Rock and continue the rifts created during Cersei's rule.
The Lannisters are proud. You'd think the royal sigil would be sufficient, but no. He makes his mother's House equal in honor to the king's.
Jaime : Tyrion, my sweet brother, there are times when you give me cause to wonder whose side you are on. Tyrion : Why, Jaime, my sweet brother, you wound me.
You know how much I love my family. The Lannisters never declined, graciously or otherwise. The Lannisters took what was offered. There is no limit to Lannister pride or Lannister ambition.
Tyrion : We Lannisters do have a certain pride. Der Stammbaum der machthungrigen Lannisters wurde ganz schön ausgedünnt.

Fandom Apps Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. D&D Beyond. Tywin Lannister is the current head of the family. His father Tytos Lannister presided over a period of decline for the house. He frittered away much of their fortune on poor investments and allowed himself to be mocked at court creating a perception of weakness. Their vassals House Reyne of Castamere rebelled against Lord Tytos. Tywin Lannister is the head of House Lannister, Lord of Casterly Rock and Warden of the West. He appears in the Song of Ice and Fire book series and is played by Charles Dance on the HBO show Game of Thrones. Tywin Lannister married Joanna Lannister and had three children: Jaime, Cersei, and Tyrion Lannister. House Lannister of Casterly Rock is one of the Great Houses of Seven Kingdoms, and the principal house of the westerlands. Their seat is Casterly Rock, though another branch exists in nearby Lannisport. Their sigil is a golden lion on a field of crimson. Their official motto is "Hear Me Roar!". The Lannisters – known in Westeros for their riches, influence, and ruthlessness. But in our world, they’re probably mostly known for their uhm, interesting family dynamics. Not exactly a family of role models.
