Main Character: Bran Stark
Bran Stark is Robb Stark’s younger brother; he was named after his uncle, who was killed by the Mad King, Aerys II. Bran once dreamt of being a great and famous knight, standing at Robb’s side; however, his dreams were dashed to pieces when he broke both his legs after he fell from a tower window. Bran now gets about by sitting in a basket strapped to the back of the 7-foot-tall Hodor. After losing the use of his legs, Bran is not nearly as optimistic and cheerful as he had been before the tragic accident. However, the near-death experience has awakened a special ability within him, one that allows him to see more than what his two eyes alone show him. Bran and his group now travel to the Wall, hoping to find the three-eyed crow that lies beyond because only the three-eyed crow has the power to help Bran master his new-found abilities.
