  Assignment 1: Definitions and Notes Actors: The actors are the people or characters that play a role, whether that role is important or insignificant, in the happenings of a place, time period, or TV show. Actors in a TV show often make more of an impact on the world as they become more important. In the Game of Thrones series, there are many important actors that have importance at different time periods.    Eddard Stark:  Eddard Stark is the patriarch of the Stark family and the ruler of Winterfell. During the first series of GoT, he also becomes the Hand to the King, an important governing role in the Seven Kingdoms. Eddard, also known as Ned, is the embodiment of the just leader, putting justice and truth above all else in leadership and as a man. Ultimately, this leads to his demise because he searched for the truth even when it was ill advised.    Catelyn Stark: Catelyn Stark, Ned Stark‟s wife, is the mother of the Stark children and the Lady of Winterfell. Catelyn was srcinally a Tully before she married Ned. She plays the role of mother and protector of her children and always has their interests and safety in mind. That being said, she has an immense distrust and hatred for Jon Snow.    Robb Stark:  Robb Stark is the son of Ned and Catelyn Stark, and is the eldest of the five children. Heir to Winterfell, Robb Stark has been groomed as a man and a warrior by his father so that he will be fit to take the throne one day.    Jon Snow: Jon Snow is the baseborn son of Ned Stark. His mother is unknown and he is very close with the Stark children except for Sansa. Ned took him as his own and raised him until Ned left to become the Hand. Jon then was forced to take the Black of the  Night‟s Watch with his uncle Benjen Stark. Jon Snow is a honorable man and a good friend, while also being a strong leader.     Sansa Stark:  The eldest female child of the Starks, Sansa is the typical princess type. Well-mannered and soft spoken, she is a people pleaser and subscribes to the ideals of  being a true lady. This causes her to bump heads often with her sister, Arya.    Arya Stark:  The youngest daughter of the Starks, Ayra is the wild child. She wants to fight with swords and go on hunts instead of learn needle working and other „lady - like” skills of her time. She has a very close relationship with Jon Snow, and she is always getting herself into trouble.    Brandon Stark:  Bran Stark is the second youngest child of the Stark household. He is curious and loves to explore, which causes him much displeasure after he falls and  becomes paralyzed from the waist down. Once lively, Bran begins to struggle and feel trapped in the body that he used to be able to climb to the top of the world in.    Rickon Stark:  The youngest Stark, Rickon is but a toddler in the early stages of the bok. Pampered and ill-mannered, Rickon often exhibits himself as the archetypal baby of the family. Artifacts: Items in the world that have some sort of importance to a character or group of characters. These can be physical or emotional and have a lot of sway in the daily lives of the characters.    The Dire Wolves: The dire wolves are the pets of the Stark children. Found after the execution of a deserter, there are six dire wolves. Grey Wind is Robb‟s, Ghost is Jon‟s, Lady is Sansa‟s, Nymeria is Arya‟s, Summer is Bran‟s, and Shaggydog is Rickon‟s. The Dire wolves play an important role to each of the Starks, and they exhibit similar characteristics to each of the Stark‟s children.       Ice:   The familial great sword of the Stark household, Ice is Ned Stark‟s weapon. Made of Valyrian steel, it is one of the sharpest blades in the Seven Kingdoms. It shines blue in the light and is intricately carved. It has been passed down through the Stark generations to Ned, and will one day fall to Robb.    The Dire Wolf Crest: The crest of the Stark household, the Dire Wolf represents all Starks as a whole. Showing the ferocity and strength of the Stark house, the Dire Wolf remains a terrible sight to behold to both enemies and prey. The Dire Wolf is the top of the food chain, and the Starks view themselves as the premier house in all of the Seven Kingdoms.    Ned’s Honor:  Ned Stark is known for his honor. He believes that a leader should carry out his own verdicts. Therefore, Ned Stark does the executing of people that he orders executed. Ned values his honor and the honor of others above all else, which ultimately ends in Ned‟s demise.   Communities of Practice: Communities of practice are the groups of people that share similar ideals or goals in the world. This can be a distinct group of just a number of people who happen to be similarly driven.    The Starks: The Stark family is the most powerful family in the north. The liege lords of many banner men, the Starks have been tasked with being the Kings in the North. Although the kingdom is ruled by one king at the moment, the Starks remain the authority in the North and no Northman will bend to the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms if the Starks do not do so first.    The Seven Kingdoms:  The alliance of all seven regions in Westeros, the Seven Kingdoms is a grouping of city states that has come together in the interest of combined  strength in numbers. Ruled by Robert Baratheon, the Seven Kingdoms have gradually  become weaker and weaker as an alliance since the fall of the Dragon Kings (Targaryens). This contains all of the houses in Westeros.    The Night’s Watch:  The watcher  s on the wall, the Night‟s Watch protect the kingdoms of man from the various monsters and wild men that occupy the area North of the Wall. Lord Commander Jeor Mormont leads the Night‟s watch, while Jon Snow, Maester Aemon, Samwell Tarly, Pyp, Grenn, Halfh and, and Benjen Stark are notable Night‟s Watchmen.    The Lannisters:  The main antagonists to the Stark household, the Lannisters have only their goals in mind. Cersei and Jaime Lannister are twins, Tyrion Lannister is the dwarf, and Tywin Lannister is the patriarch. The Lannisters are from the south of Westeros and are interested in taking over the Seven Kingdoms. Cersei was married to Robert Baratheon until his death and then she became the queen regent while her son Jeoffry ruled. Tywin led the troops of Casterly Rock (the Lannister home) to battle against the  Northmen and Stannis Baratheon. Literacy Practices: The ability to communicate is hindered in medieval times. Long distances cannot be spanned easily, and most trips from city to city take days. Literacy  practices are the way that people communicate, and the mediums through which they do so.    Ravens: Essentially all communication that happens between cities is carried by ravens. The maesters train ravens to carry letters to the maesters in other cities. Most notably, the statement “black wings, black words” , says that if someone is sending or receiving a raven then there must be bad news.
