Game of Thrones: A quick character guide

Game of Thrones: Jaime Lannister

Jaime Lannister is the twin brother of Cersei Lannister and her closest friend and companion. Jaime is one of the most skilled and formidible warriors in the kingdom. However, he has a reputation of being ruthless and dishonorable, mostly due to the fact that he was one of the king's guard for King Aerys Targaryen but ultimately delivered the death blow (through the back) to the mad king. That earned him the nickname "Kingslayer."  Nevertheless, Jaime is a little more complex than he first appears, like many of Martin's characters.
