I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! I post my characters on Thursdays but feel free to post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on the prompt post. ♡
This weeks theme is:
A female Slytherin Character
(A female the sorting hat would pick according to Salazar Slytherin’s mos valued characteristics: cunning, resourcefulness, and ambition. Remember she can also be, but doesn’t have to be a poor-blood elitist!)
For a change I didn’t have to think much about this as one female character stood out a mile That character is:
At the moment I can’t think of anyone who would be more suited to being a slytherin. So to go through with the characteristics:
You don’t get to be Cersei of the House Lannister, First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms without being cunning. She has been playing the game from the very start even before marrying Robert Baratheon.
Cersei is clearly resourceful, and I don’t mean “A Lannister always pays his debts” resourceful. She has eyes and ears everywhere so she knows people’s strengths and weaknesses and will play on these. Like I said before she’s playing a gm and she’s playing to win and will all that is at her disposal even if it requires getting pregnant by her twin brother. So far she’s done a good job and has got rid of nearly all of her competition especially those that were residing in Kings Landing.
How much ambition does one need to be queen? I’d wager quite a bit.
Everything that has been put in her way so far she has found a way to either break them down, blow them up or simply pit people off against each other so they do it for her. She is an incredibly crafty woman and incredibly intelligent which I think is overlooked by everyone except Sansa due to the fact that she is a woman. Yet again another thing that she makes work in her favour.
