Secondary Character: Jaqen H'gharn
When the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch sends one of his men to King's Landing to recruit more men for the Night's Watch, the King and his small council usually offer the Commander's man free choice from the criminals locked away in the capital's dungeons. Jaqen H'ghar is one of those criminals, and he was being locked up in the dungeon's black cells, reserved for the most dangerous of criminals. Yoren chose to take Jaqen and two other men from the black cells back with him to the Night's Watch. Jaqen is a handsome, slender man, with shoulder-length hair that is red on one side, and white on the other. His two fellow criminals from the black cells, Biter and Rorge, are much bigger in size and look far more intimidating, but Arya Stark, who is traveling with Yoren, notices that even the two of them are afraid of Jaqen. She soon discovers that there is more to Jaqen than meets the eye.
