Game of Thrones

House Stark

Sigil is a direwolf

Lord Eddard (Ned) Stark — Sean Bean
The Lord of Winterfell, the ancestral home of the Starks. He was fostered by John Arryn (the former Hand of the King) as a child, along with Robert Baratheon, now King Robert. The two are great friends and Ned fought alongside Robert in his rebellion against the Mad King Aerys Targaryen (father of Viserys and Danaerys). Robert was betrothed to Ned’s sister Lyanna, but she was killed by another Targaryen son. During the war he fathered Jon Snow but has never told anyone who his mother was. He brought Jon home to be raised with his own family, much to the displeasure of his wife.
Lady Catelyn Stark — Michelle Fairley
Wife of Ned Stark and mother to his five trueborn children. She was born a Tully and is from further south than Winterfell. She loves Ned deeply and finds living with the result of his infidelity very difficult. Her sister, Lysa, is the widow of John Aryn, aforementioned former Hand.
Robb Stark — Richard Madden
Eldest Stark child, heir to Winterfell.
Sansa Stark — Sophie Turner
Eldest Stark daughter. Very romantic and idealistic, wants nothing more than to be married to a brave and true knight. She loves dancing, needlework and singing and finds her younger sister to be a constant source of annoyance.
Arya Stark — Maisie Williams
Younger Stark daughter. A tomboy who finds the idea of being lady anathema. She’s a better shot than her younger brother and isn’t prone to paying the slightest attention to social niceties.
Brandon (Bran) Stark – Isaac Hempstead-Wright
Middle Stark son, an adventurous sort loves to climb all over Winterfell until he sees something he shouldn’t and is thrown from a tower.
Rickon Stark – Art Parkinson
Youngest Stark child, the baby of the family.
Jon Snow — Kit Harrington
Bastard son of Ned Stark, close in age to Robb and raised with his half-siblings, but always aware that he is not truly a Stark. Does not know who his mother is, as Ned remains close-lipped on the subject.
Benjen Stark — Joseph Mawle
Ned’s younger brother and a sworn brother of the Night’s Watch, living on and protecting the Wall that protects the seven kingdoms from the wilds and wildings of the far North. Members of the Night’s Watch vow to never marry or have children and give up any rights to land or property.
