Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Living... a life of nobility in the Kingdom of Winterfell with his siblings and their parents, Lady Catelyn and Lord Eddard Stark. When King Robert Baratheon visits their family, Bran climbs a castle wall and accidentally catches the Queen having sex with her twin brother, Jaime, who promptly pushes young Bran out the window to plunge to his presumed death.

Profession... recovering from his injuries as he gains strange new powers. Before his fall, Bran started training under his father to learn fighting skills. Now he is left without the use of his legs, but with the ability to have mysterious, possibly prophetic dreams about a three-eyed raven.  

Interests… riding horses on a saddle made especially for him to overcome his disability, being carried around by his stablehand Hodor, and taking over the consciousness of his direwolf Summer after learning he has the powers of a warg. (Meaning he can inhabit the mind of an animal.) Just being a normal kid in Winterfell, basically.

Relationship Status... single, mostly because he's just a kid. He has a lot of other things on his mind, like those raven dreams. Plus, what he saw Queen Cersei and her brother Jaime doing in the castle might have screwed up his brain for life when it comes to romance.

Challenge... uncovering the mysteries of his dreams. He meets another boy who shares similar powers named Jojen Reed. The two explore the world of dreams together, chasing the three-eyed raven and hoping to learn more about what the dreams mean for their futures.                         

Personality... strong, resilient, and curious. His life changed forever when he decided to explore a forbidden castle, and now he has no choice but to continue to explore the strange, supernatural consequences of that decision. Jojen tells him, "We've come a long way to find you, Brandon, and we have much farther to go." Bran can be scared as he investigates the road ahead, but he's brave enough to overcome that fear.
