Tyrion Lannister is the third and youngest child of Lord Tywin Lannister and younger brother of Jaime Lannister and Cersei. A dwarf, he uses his wit and intellect to overcome the prejudice he faces. He’s also a members of House Lannister.
Tyrion Lannister, who has a mind, a big heart and a sharp tongue, has become one of the favorite characters in the Game of Thrones. Every big fan knows at least one of his quotes.
Already different from everyone in his powerful family, Tyrion (played by Peter Dinklage) was considered the abomination of his own father. Since no one seemed to care about him, he began to act recklessly. He already brought shame to his family, not even wanting it, so adding to it a little drunkenness and flirting did not seem such a big deal.
However, despite all his bad habits, Tyrion always knew how to speak. He outwitted most of the Game of Thrones characters, using words to reason with unintelligent people to create a better world. His diplomatic skills, strategy (and his last name, of course) helped him to become at the same time the Hand of the King and the Hand of the Queen.
And let’s not forget that, even if he wasn’t as strong or brave as other characters, Tyrion did it to the end of the story.
