Game of Thrones: Tyrion Lannister

A small man
Casting a big shadow,
A “half-man”
Being more human than most,
That’s Tyrion Lannister.

Never loved by a father,
Never loved by a sister,
Never loved by a wife,
Still he never stopped loving,
That’s Tyrion Lannister.

No good as a soldier
Yet helmed a victorious battle,
Not from a friendly family
Yet made true friends,
That’s Tyrion Lannister.

Humiliated at every opportunity,
Broken in spirit,
Thrown to death multiple times,
Only to come out stronger always,
That’s Tyrion Lannister.

As I start my week-long reminiscence of my favourite characters from Game of Thrones, just before the first episode of its final season hits us, I could think of no other than Tyrion to kick start it. He has always been my ultimate favourite, so much so that I once told my friend that I really don’t care how they end the show as long as Tyrion stands till the last scene of the last episode! But then, I do care now. Nevertheless, this one’s for the guy who gave us some of the best lines from the saga and had so many of us look completely beyond looks and scream at the screen, “You please don’t die!!!” As well as just smile like an idiot every single time he walked into the frame!
