Game Of Thrones Fan-Art Walks us Down Memory Lane

The holidays are a time for friends and family, and so via Reddit, we bring you a walk down memory lane with your Game of Thrones family. How many are alive and how many are dead? How many are mostly dead? Which we all know is slightly alive. Let’s dive in.

Oh, the memories. We have 65 characters pictured, and it appears the artist — Raymond Waskita — left off lesser characters like Rodrik Cassel and Old Nan. Those we can understand, but where are Jon Snow’s brothers in the Night’s Watch? Lord Commander Mormont, Alliser Thorne, and Dolourous Edd are all noticeably absent. Also strangely unseen, are Qyburn and Meera Reed. Surely they count as important? Either way, let’s get to the numbers.

First, the good news. We have 36 characters still alive! Six seasons of bloody mayhem and we still have over half our beloved characters still alive and breathing. (Some of them aren’t so loved, but still.) Additionally, we have two more characters that are mostly dead. The Mountain is still ripping people’s heads off, and Uncle Benjen is still riding around north of the Wall (on that horse he should have given to Bran). So we’ll count them as alive.

Now for the bad news. We have 27 characters that have perished after six seasons. This is perhaps less than one would initially think, right off the bat. Many and more of the Starks are up there, as are all of House Baratheon (minus half Baratheon Gendry). House Lannister hasn’t fared so well over the past six seasons, and House Tyrell lost most of its house in one explosive episode.

As we sit and enjoy our presents and family, let’s all take a moment and remember those we have lost. Is there a character here that you miss more than others? Or, is your favorite still alive? The spoiled version follows below.

That’s a lot of red.

  • Really good but A LOT missed: Roose Bolton, Walder Frey , Edmure, Blackfish, Meera, Pycelle, Doran, Lysa, Rodrik, Thoros, Beric, Balon, Lancel, Kevan, Quyburn, Dolorous ed, and for sure a lot more.

    • Yeah, as I started to go through it I noticed everyone missing. Could have been another couple rows easily!

  • Who’s on the bottom left? Is it Sweet robin? I can’t tell and it’s driving me crazy. Pretty cool artwork though, and you can tell a lot of time went in to this. I agree though, there’s a lot of good characters missing so I wonder how the artist decided who to include.

  • Cut the artist some slack. He gives us a great piece of fan art and people (not everyone mind you) complain that he ONLY included 65 characters lol. I’d be happy to check out a picture of the other 950+ named characters in the series if anyone wants to create that.

  • This is terrific. The style successfully evokes a mediaeval eastern European form of icon portraiture, including the colophon at lower right. The portraits/caricatures are mostly quite recognisable, using both likeness and attributes. The style and coloring also remind me of a well-known mid-20th century book illustrator named Arthur Szyk. I do wish the red X didn’t cover faces. Maybe if the artist or whoever updates this in future they’ll use red circles instead. Posters are right about a number of people omitted, but certainly the paramount characters are all included. All-in-all, this is a creative and bravura addition to the GoT fan-art canon.
