It feels like a long time in coming, but I finally got BUILD #600
And whenever I hit a milestone build, I always try to pick big time character to celebrate it. This time, I went the other direction in size, but certainly not in personality. Check out this J-Mart Favorite item!Tyrion Lannister: Let me tell you something, Bastard. Never forget what you are, the rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon Snow: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion Lannister: ...All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.
[to Joffrey] She's to be your queen. Have you no regard for her honor? Joffrey Baratheon:
I'm punishing her. Tyrion Lannister:
For what crimes? She's not fighting her brother's battle, you halfwit. Joffrey Baratheon:
You can't talk to me like that. The king can do as he likes! Tyrion Lannister:
The mad king did as he liked. Has your uncle Jaime ever told you what happened to him? Meryn Trant:
No one threatens his grace in the presence of the Kingsguard! Tyrion Lannister:
I'm not threatening the king, Ser, I'm educating my nephew. Tyrion Lannister:
[to Bronn] Bronn, the next time the Ser Meryn speaks, kill him
[Back to Ser Meryn] Tyrion Lannister: THAT
was a threat. See the difference?TYRION LANNISTERPL:

For #600, I had to go with my favorite character and obvious breakout character and (current, you don’t know how long characters are going to make it in that show, which is why I love it) star of Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister, played by the wonderful Peter Dinklage. Also known as The Imp, Tyrion is the 3rd child of Lord Tywin Lannister, the richest, and therefore actually the most powerful man in Westeros regardless of who is king. Tyrion’s mother died during childbirth, which his sister, Cersei, who is married to King Robert Baratheon, and his father both resent him for. His brother, Jamie, and he seem to have a fairly civil relationship as Jamie, wanting to ensure that Tyrion did not miss dinner with the Starks during their trip to Winterfell, sent him a night’s worth of whores at one time, just to move things along. Funny stuff.
Because he is a dwarf, he has been subjected to many prejudices and slights despite his lineage. However, because of that, while Jamie became one of the best swordsmen in the Seven Kingdoms, Tyrion turned his mind into a weapon, and what a weapon it is. He has outsmarted pretty much everyone in the series so far, but that obviously won’t last since his sister is out to get him big-time and she’s a manipulator of the highest order. Tyrion initially comes off as a drunken whoremonger (and he is) but he is so much more than that. He knows how to play the King’s Landing game as well, if not better than anyone except his sister, but he has shown great compassion towards several characters that you wouldn’t think he would and he truly seems to have the best interest of the realm at heart once he takes over as the new Hand of the King after Ned has vacated the role.
As a build, he is all about the interaction skills and just knowing more about everything than everybody else. For the setting, he has shown himself to be a passable fighter for his size but in a true battle, he has to use his brains to survive. I hope that continues as long as the show is on because he the one character I can’t see them replacing.
