“I’m not asking you to forget your dead. I’ll never forget mine. I lost fifty brothers the night that Mance attacked the Wall. But I’m asking you to think about your children now. They’ll never have children of their own if we don’t band together. The Long Night is coming and the dead come with it. No clan can stop them. The Free Folk can’t stop them, the Night’s Watch can’t stop them and all the southern kings can’t stop them! Only together. All of us. And even then it may not be enough, but at least we give the fuckers a fight.”
– Jon Snow
Jon Snow is one of the most favourite characters the Game of Thrones fantasy series. He is the bastard son of Lord Eddard ”Ned” Stark of Winterfell and half-brother to Robb, Sansa, Arya, Bran, and Rickon. Despite being a bastard, Jon is treated by his father equally as other children. However, this doesn’t make him feel any less of an outsider. Jon idolizes his father, but is hurt by Ned’s refusal to identify his mother.
Jon feels he has to live by values his father taught him: leadership, selflessness, duty, and honor. This becomes difficult for Jon as he grows up and he faces many challenges to his identity. He wants to live honorably, despite the fact that honor is the reason many of his family members are dead.
