Third and final part of the list of major and some minor characters in Season 1.

Characters across the Narrow Sea:

Daenerys Targaryen: Youngest child of Aerys II Targaryen and his wife/sister Rhaella. Sister to Rhaegar and Viserys. Daenerys was not born until after the death of her father and oldest brother Rhaegar. Her mother and brother Viserys fled to Dragonstone during Roberts rebellion and this is where Daenerys was born. Rhaella died in labour with Daenerys. Daenerys spent her life fleeing from Robert Baratheon because he wanted them killed. She was sold by her brother Viserys to Khal Drogo for an army.

Viserys Targaryen: Second child and son born to Aerys and Rhaella. Heir to the throne after Rhaegar. Spent most of his life living in exile with Daenerys after the man who smuggled them to Braavos died and his servants later evicted them . He became known as "The Beggar King". He believed he was due instant respect and adoration because of his lineage and became obsessed with his plot to regain the Iron Throne. As a result of this he sold Daenerys to Khal Drogo in exchange for an army that would help him regain the Iron Throne.

Khal Drogo: A powerful warlord of the Dothraki. He marries Daenerys Targaryen as payment for an army. He grows to lover her and promises to invade Westeros for her sake after killing her brother Viserys, however he dies before the invasion can begin.

He fled Westeros to escape execution for trading in slaves and took up work as a mercenary in the Free Cities. During the wedding of Daenerys and Khal Drogo he entered the service of Viserys and became one of Daenerys most trusted companions.

Mirri Maz Duur: Was a wise woman of the Lhazareen. Daenerys rescued her from Khal Drogo's men after their attack on her city. Drogo was suffering from his battle wounds and Daenerys convinced Drogo to let Mirri make a poultice for him. Drogo tour it off when it began to itch so his wound festered. Daenerys convinced Mirri Maz Duur to use her blood magic to help Drogo but Mirri used this as an opportunity to get revenge for Drogo's attack on her city and turned Drogo into a vegetable state instead of saving him. As a result Daenerys burned her at the stake.

Characters from The Eyrie

Characters that move around a lot in Season 1 (Are never really in one place for long)

I went into a little too much detail on Daenerys and Viserys and Mirri Maz Duur I think but I couldn't help it! My bad! As usual I hope you like this and find it a help. If there are any characters you feel I left out but should be included just let me know in the comments below! :)
